How to Improve Your Memory?

Have you ever you suddenly forget the colleague’s name who you had just met? Or you stop at the car park and forget the lot you have parked? Or you ask yourself: “Where is my key?”And then you feel afraid of losing memory when you get older. How to protect your memory soon?

The following tips can help you enhance your memory:

Exercise

Exercise can enhance your memory because it increases the blood flow to your noggin, bringing much-needed oxygen and glucose for fuel. After doing an intense workout, you can learn vocabulary words 20 percent faster rather than you try to memorize after a low-impact activity.

Diet

A healthy, calorie-restricted diet can help the memory performance of healthy elderly adults. It is recommended to eat foods that are high in vitamin E and this includes healthy vegetable oil-based salad dressings, seeds and nuts, peanut butter, and whole grains.

Alcohol and caffein

Moderate amounts of red wine and other types of alcohol and caffeine may be at reduced risk for losing memory.

A Web search

Spending an hour a day looking online for something you’re interested in has been shown helpful in memory protection as it may stimulate the part of your frontal lobe that controls short-term memory.

Chewing gum

Chewing gum may help you to recall information by increasing your heart rate which increases blood flow to your brain.

Floss

When you don’t floss, your gums become inflamed, making it easier for bad bacteria to enter your bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, the bacteria may cause inflammation in the brain and may lead to cognitive dysfunction.
