Your brain demands a lot of attention and support. Boosting your memory is a concerted effort…
Listen, we know you've read a couple of articles and want to know the lowdown on what you should be doing. Here's the thing:
You have to eat a good diet to support your body and your brain. You put in junk, your brains going to be junk. Even if you take all the supplements in the world, it's not going to work.
They have to work together.
If you go without the right nutrients for your brain, you're going to feel sluggish, have brain fog, and forget things. Who wants to be without a good memory?
But, eating the right foods is hard, and it might not be enough.
There are ways to make a difference – with the right habits and supplements.
The Four Natural Ways To Boost Your Memory
Get More Sleep
Simple right? If you're already trying to get enough sleep and it's still not enough, most people will tell you to try harder. It might not be you're not getting enough sleep early enough.
It could be that your brain just doesn't have enough nutrients truly functional well, and it's using sleep to make up for it. That means you're going to feel tired more often, no matter how much sleep you get.
If you think you really could use more sleep, try adding 5-15 minutes to your sleep schedule. If you added a little bit at a time, it doesn't seem like such a big deal.
More likely, you also should be getting more…
Eat More Fats
This is a big one! Because of low-fat diets, so many people are fat deficient. Your brain needs a lot of fat, it's one of the primary building blocks of your memory, and it's what protects the brain from oxidative damage. As much as 70% of our caloric intake coming from fat has been shown as healthy.
Alpha-lipoic acid, alpha GPC, vitamin D… omega-three fatty acids of ALA, EPA, and DHA…
Both saturated and unsaturated fats make our brains work better. Make sure you go as natural as possible. Butter, olive oil, avocados, the fats found in the meats and fish are all healthy for you if they come from organic sources or a quality supplement.
Plus, fats give you the energy to be able to exercise…
Exercise The Right Way
One of the best ways to improve your memory is exercise. Increased blood flow, more energy, feeling better about yourself – this is what comes from exercise.
Do something fun. Because if it's work, you're only going to cause more oxidative stress.
Make sure it's something that raises your heart rate and provides a little bit of muscle resistance.
Aerobic exercise is perfect for building your endurance and fat burning. Resistance training or weight training builds up your muscles. And don't forget to stretch before and after your exercise.
The Right Supplements Make The Right Difference
These three things above take a little bit of time to integrate into your life and really see a difference. But when you need a boost right now, the biggest bang for your buck comes from a quality supplement.
You can go to the grocery store and pick up numerous different supplements pretty cheap. But you're going to get something that's pretty cheap and probably not going to supplement everything you need.
Why take that chance?
Some top vitamins are the B vitamins, B1, B2, B5, B6, biotin… now you mix that up with some brain friendly minerals such as zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium…
Oh, and don't forget one of the most important ones at all: magnesium.
And while each of these vitamins do work, you've got a lot of other factors involved. That's why people often have better success in taking herbs. The herbs have all of these vitamins and minerals already, but they also have one thing most supplements don't: the co-factors and support nutrients to get them absorbed easily.
You see, none of the nutrients work alone. Things like ashwagandha, catnip, thyme, and horseradish help the brain, and people knew this. Thyme was planted around philosopher's houses because it was supposed to help them think.
Turn Your Health And Your Life Around
If you want to clear your head, help your body. Get your exercise, eat good food with a lot of fat. Get a quality supplement to support everything in your body with a wide range of nutrients, so they all work together. You should choose nutrition over caffeine or drug stimulants. If you feel good naturally, coffee is more of a pleasure than a necessity. And life becomes more exciting because you have the energy to do things all the time.
