Berries And More Berries

1. Berries the brain food to improve memory. Specifically blueberriesare the power berries to improve memory. Berries are chucked full of antioxidants. Eating just a 1/4 cup of blueberries everyday will help your memory. True Stories; Two examples in particular my aunt who noticed she was becoming more forgetful started to worry, and asked her doctor if there was anything she could do to help her memory. He told her blueberries, everyday. She started eating blueberries everyday, and noticed an improvement in her memory. The second example is my mom she constantly holds up the blueberry flag declarring how they have really helped her. For the past 2 months or so she has not missed a single day of eating her berries and tells me not only did it help her memory, but has given her a second benefit with elimination.

Blueberries And Beyond

Blueberries are the best because of the anthocyanic purple blue pigments and chlorogenic acid found in them. Not only do they help the brain but they are excellent anti-inflammatory agents within them. Other berries which have great health benefits are cherries, cranberries, and raspberries.

These vitamins also play a big part in helping to make healthy red blood cells which is the vehicle to carry oxygen to the brain. Spinach has multitude benefits besides being a healthy brain food. The potassium and magnesium are proven agents in helping to lower the blood pressure.  So listening to your mother when she said eat your spinach she's right. Keeping eating your spinach.

6. Pomegrante, do not worry drinking pomegrante juice is just as good. Pomegrante has multi-purpose benefits. Remember the rule rich color foods everyday in your diet. Dark greens, and your pomegrante is also been said to be good for helping to prevent cancer. Pretty much most health nuts are familiar with foods which help to boost your memory. I tried to find some other alternatives that are less commonly found on most super brain food list.

As always your nuts, and whole grains such as flaxseed oil, walnuts, and omega 3 are always good to mention.

    So, who knew a baked potato would be good for memory. Of course the others you mentioned I've heard of, but not the potato.

    You know I bought the Gotu kola, from my local health food store, but I forgot to use it, LOL! So now I'm going to have a cup today, or rather a few cups today.

    Thanks so much for this wonderfully, healthful, info. Voted up, useful, interesting.
