EAT TO REMEMBER
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.
