  • Memory is such an important asset, and one that many people take for grantedwhile

  • there are others who seemingly struggle to remember the simplest of thingslike, “where

  • are my keys?” Orwhat was his name?” To help people enhance memory there are allies

  • in the form of vitamins which can help boost memory levelsand some that can slow or

  • stop diseases which cause memory loss like Alzheimer’s

  • Here are the main types of vitamins that can increase memory and brain power:

  • B Vitamins. Research shows that B vitamins improve memory by creating a protective shield

  • for the neurons in the brain. B vitamins break down homocysteine, which is an amino acid

  • that is a toxic poison to nerve cells. These vitamins also aid in the production of red

  • blood cells, which carry oxygen, an important brain nutrient.

  • The most important B vitamins for memory include B6, B12, and Folic Acid (B9). You can increase

  • the B vitamins in your diet by taking vitamin supplements and by consuming healthy, natural

  • foods such as spinach and other dark, leafy vegetables broccoli, asparagusthere are

  • also strawberries, melons, black beans, leeks, and other legumes, citrus fruits such as oranges

  • and grapefruit, and soybeans. The Second great supplement for increasing

  • memory and brain capacity is Antioxidants. Antioxidants protect brain tissue by breaking

  • down free radicals, which are toxic forms of the oxygen molecule naturally found in

  • the bloodstream. Vitamins C, E, and beta carotene are antioxidants

  • and are also important vitamins for memory. Antioxidant vitamins and memory are linked

  • because the damage free radicals do can impair the functioning of the neurons in your brain.

  • Like the B vitamins, in other words, the antioxidant vitamins prevent damage to the basic brain

  • structures. Supplementing with antioxidant vitamins daily

  • is recommended. In addition, these vitamins can be found in naturally in blueberries,

  • strawberries, and other berries; sweet potatoes; red tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, green tea

  • and other types of tea, nuts and seeds, and citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits.

  • The last of the memory aids I’m going to talk about is Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Omega-3

  • fatty acids are not really "vitamins" as such, but important fat molecules that enhance memory

  • and brain function. The acids in Omega 3 supplements contain properties

  • that act as anti-inflammatorywhich help keep diseases like Alzheimer’s at bay by

  • keeping the brain cells from swellingStudies have shown that a reduction in brain swelling

  • has a direct link to increased brain memoryFor years there have been studies to determine

  • if eating fish can actually help repair damage to the cells in the brain. And results indicate

  • that Omega3 in fish is a great brain and memory food

  • There are three acids that make up Omega 3, ALA, DHA and EPA. Together, these three acids

  • help repair or reduce damage to the cells within the body preventing or lessening damage

  • from a host of troublesome health issues. Making sure you prevent brain cell damage

  • through adding Omega3 to your diet is a great way to prolong your memory capacity.

  • So there you go, 3 powerful supplements for brain memory. B vitamins, Antioxidants and

  • Omega-3’s For more information check out the Sacred
