(WKBW/Cleveland Clinic) Here's food for thought: the things you eat may actually boost your memory! Dietitians say start by adding blueberries to your diet!
Amy Jamieson-Petonic, a registered dietitian at the Cleveland Clinic says, "Blueberries have a pigment called anthocyanin. It's what makes them blue and tends to increase our ability to remember things. Researchers conducted a study where they looked at older adults who were having memory problems. They gave them two-and-a-half cups of blueberry juice for 3 months, and they found that
after these 3 months their memory improved and their learning recall improved."
Experts also say almonds contain a specific building-block of protein which increases a nerve chemical in our brain that improves memory.
They also say green tea can also act as a memory booster, and dark chocolate that's at lease 70 percent cocoa contains flavanols which are said to increase blood flow to the brain.
And, dietitians say drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil on your next garden salad for a "meatier" memory.
