Forgetful? Eat Memory Foods

Every cell in your body needs a steady supply of oxygen and nutrients in order to stay alive and work properly, including your brain cells! So what foods do we need to eat to help our brain function, specifically for our memory? The more overall produce you eat, the better. Cruciferous vegetables and leafy green vegetables have the biggest effect on boosting brain memory.

Some of the best cruciferous vegetables are broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower. The best green leafy veggies are spinach, kale and collard or mustard greens. Other foods known to increase memory are ones with folic acid, such as, lentils, black-eyed peas, artichokes, wheat germ, beets and oranges. Fish has also shown to aid in memory retention.

Increase your memory by adding the above foods to your diet, exercising 30 minutes a day and de-stressing your life when possible.

Does anyone know about how long it would start making your memory better if you really start eating a lot of these things and getting the exercise. Will you notice very quickly or will it take a month or so?

As it was said in the post the body needs nutrients to functn properly. Eating a big meal for a breakfast then gradually reduce intake throughout the day. It is very important to get your exercise in too because believe it of not, exercising can reduce stress.
