What can you do to improve your memory: useful substances?

A large number of people after the age of 40 experience small or significant memory loss in some segments of their lives.

Neurotransmitters, the chemicals that transmit information from neuron to neuron, are important for our memory. As we age, the levels of these neurotransmitters in the brain decrease, resulting in impaired memory and thought processes. Sometimes both hormonal changes and atherosclerosis can cause memory problems, as can environmental toxins, stress and too little sleep. This then begs the question: how can one maintain or even how to improve memory?

Emotional stress stimulates the production of the hormone cortisol, which is toxic to neurons in large quantities - all these factors more or less significantly affect our memory. Unlike Alzheimer's disease, which is a very serious condition, temporary memory loss in people over forty can result in forgetting certain names, people, important dates and a little confusion, which we often justify with overwork due to work and daily obligations, which is certainly not far from the truth.

However, in addition to some memory exercises, which can boost our memory, it is important to know that both food and certain foods can play a role in restoring good memory.

A balanced diet rich in essential amino acids, omega fatty acids, minerals and vitamins will help to restore your memory sharpness.

1. Choose complex carbohydrates. Choose brown rice, lentils, barley, oats, pulses and whole grains in your diet, which will provide your brain with enough energy and increase memory capacity.

2. Eat fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are full of healthy antioxidants and help restore brain function. Eat fruits full of antioxidants like blueberries, cherries, tomatoes and vegetables like courgettes and peppers, broccoli, cabbage.

3. Take omega-3 fatty acids. There is evidence that these acids have beneficial effects on brain health. Vegetarian sources of omega-3 fatty acids - almond oil, sesame oil, olive oil and flaxseed oil are good choices for brain health. Studies have shown that a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids in the diet reduces the risk of Alzheimer's disease, while saturated fats and trans-fatty acids increase this risk.

4. Blue-green algae. Spirulina and chlorella are a type of blue-green algae that are easily digested, are a rich source of protein and energy and help the brain to function properly. It is useful to take them in powder form, which is mixed with juices or other drinks.

5. Nuts, seeds and dried fruit. These are a rich source of essential fatty acids, carotenoids and antioxidants that support healthy brain function. Eat hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, goji berries, apricots and blueberries to improve your memory!

Exercise and eat healthy foods so you don't forget the important little things!
