Memory & Supplements

Standard

Many of us can become memory challenged at different times in our life. Here are some dietary supplements which can help to improve our memory performance.

Lecithin (Phosphatidylcholine)
This can sometimes improve memory storage and retrieval abilities.

Fish Oil (Omega-3)
Is very beneficial for health in general, and helps in cell formation.

Ginkgo
This helps with blood circulation, and hence improves blood flow to the brain.

Vitamins B2, B12 & D
All assist with mental health.

Folic Acid
This improves cognitive functioning in healthy older people.

Isoflavones
These are plant hormones, for example soy is a good source.

Phosphatidylserine
These enhance memory and the ability to think straight. A good source of these are soybeans, mackerel, herring, liver, kidneys and white beans.

Sage
This is a mental stimulant and it also inhibits the enzymes which deactivate the brain’s neuro-transmitters.
