Keep forgetting where you left your keys? Need to write lists to remember things? It happens to the best of us. Memory problems tend to get worse as we age and whilst it’s common, it isn’t something that you simply have to live with.
Physical activity, social interactions, eating well, getting enough sleep and completing things like Sudoku puzzles and crosswords are all great ways to keep your brain sharp and improve your memory.
But supplements can also help. Here we look at which supplements are best for boosting your memory.
(please note: if you or a loved one is showing signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia, you should consult your GP as soon as possible)
We need vitamin B-12 for DNA synthesis and neurological function, plus the proper formation of red blood cells. Some research suggests that poor memory can be a result of Vitamin B-12 deficiency, in addition to dementia, confusion, and even depression.
Used in India for centuries, recent research conducted in the West have shown ashwagandha to have some effect on memory and overall brain function. Other studies seem to indicate that ashwagandha contains phytochemicals that may help calm the brain and help you think more clearly.
Omega-3 fatty acids
Fish oil contains high levels of essential fatty acids, including DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). EPA is involved in cognitive function and studies show that high EPA levels in older adults support healthy memory later in life. Other research has shown that revealed dementia patients exhibit lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids.
Astaxanthin is a naturally-occurring plant pigment that is found in fish and algae. Because it’s a powerful antioxidant it helps fight free radicals in the body, something that helps to fight oxidative stress in the body. A 2017 study reported that astaxanthin could cross the blood-brain barrier and showed potential for brain protection during the natural ageing process.
NAD+ memory plus supplements
Our Memory Plus supplements contain minerals, vitamins, plant enzymes, fatty amino acids and antioxidants which may strengthen the immune system, enhance natural memory, boost mental clarity, aid recall, reduce the difficulties associated with memory loss and improve cognitive function.
Our memory plus supplements contain another vital ingredient – NAD+. Research suggests that NAD+ plays important roles in metabolic processes in the brain, and has effects on brain functioning such as neurotransmission, learning, and memory.
Studies have shown that NAD+ supplements can help relieve symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
