Finding yourself a bit forgetful as you get older? While that’s natural to some extent, you can slow down the process. Better still, you can reverse it and improve your memory – very fast – simply by sprucing up your diet. So, if your brain needs a bit of a boost, just add the following 6 foods to your weekly diet and watch your cognitive abilities soar.
Salmon, sardines, and nuts: these are packed with essential omega-3’s fats. Eating them on a regular basis will go a long way to keeping your brain (and heart) healthy into old age. In fact, studies have shown that people with low levels of omega-3’s have brains that look 2 years older on MRI scans than those without a deficiency.
Then there’s vitamin B12 – another nutrient of which low levels can lead to memory loss. Getting plenty of this one is easy – especially if you’re a fan of “sea fruits”. So, load up on your clams, oysters, and mussels, and have yourself a feast.
Want more? Here you go: sprinkle olive oil on your salads for some extra omega-3’s (and rich flavor too). And if you like dairy, you’re in for a treat! Yogurt and cheese pack plenty of B12.
At the end of the day, if you eat a lot of real, whole foods, you won’t need to worry about memory loss, brain fog, or many other signs of aging. You’ll be giving your body what it needs to repair and sustain itself well into your later years. So, ditch the processed junk and get on a natural, health kick.
Need another reason to go whole? Weight loss. That’s right, the pounds and inches will literally melt off when you cut the artificial crap from your diet. So, if the prospect of a faster brain isn’t enough to motivate you, perhaps a slimmer waistline will. Now, get to it…
