“Wait where did I put my keys? Huh, what did I need to buy at the grocery store again?”
No, no one is pushing you to buy a new smart phone application (can you believe there are apps for those who misplace keys? ha!). In order to make sure your memory is in tip-top shape though, you should go out and purchase a multivitamin.
That’s right! “Adults who took vitamin and mineral supplements for almost a decade performed better on one type of memory test that those who didn’t take the supplements.”
You have probably heard it before but “getting enough nutrients could aid thinking and memory skills as people get older.”
The reason this information is necessary to be repeated is because people are relying far to heavily on processed foods, which don’t have nearly as many nutrients and fruits and vegetables.
“Findings support a beneficial effect of a well-balanced intake of antioxidant nutrients at nutritional doses for maintaining cognitive performance, especially verbal memory.”
If you don’t want to go through the hassle of trying to select the best multivitamin, simply tweaking your diet could help you tap into your memory stores.
This may actually be the best thing you can do for your memory, tweaking your diet, because while “vitamins and minerals are important for memory, they’re not the only thing that’s important. The most important thin is eating a healthy diet, being active, and keeping your brain sharp.”
So instead of downloading a list maker or a key finder on your phone, download a crossword puzzle application along with an application to help you select the most nutrient rich foods at the store!
