EAT TO RE­MEM­BER

Simply Her (Singapore) - - SimplyHer is 10! -

Start adding th­ese foods to your daily diet if you want to up­grade your mem­ory, says Ja­clyn Reutens, clin­i­cal di­eti­tian from Ap­tima Nu­tri­tion & Sports Con­sul­tants.

Eggs: Egg yolk con­tains choline, which helps in the de­vel­op­ment of the hip­pocam­pus, the part of the brain in­volved in mem­ory for­ma­tion and re­ten­tion.

Leafy green vegetables, fish, chicken and beans: Th­ese are high in B vi­ta­mins, which are strongly linked to brain health and func­tion.

Red, pur­ple and blue fruits: The an­tho­cyanin in them, an an­tiox­i­dant, en­hances mem­ory power.

Oily fish like sal­mon, tuna and mack­erel: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, th­ese have an anti-in­flam­ma­tory ef­fect and pro­tect the lin­ing of your brain cells.

Ap­ples and cran­ber­ries: Th­ese con­tain quercetin, a flavonoid that pro­tects the brain against ox­ida­tive dam­age.

Turmeric: It has the an­tiox­i­dant cur­cumin, which pre­vents clog­ging of your neu­ral path­ways.
