8 foods and drinks to enhance memory 11

Green tea, fatty fish, eggs, berries, vegetables and nuts provide healthy fats and antioxidants that can help with better memory.

The risk of memory loss often increases with age combined with lifestyle, illness, medication use, and inappropriate living environment.

Master and doctor Nguyen Anh Duy Tung, Nutrihome Nutrition Clinic System, said the following foods contain lots of omega-3, choline, vitamin D and group B, antioxidants that contribute to enhancing memory.

Fatty fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA and EPA, which are important for brain health.

Adults who eat fatty fish three times per week, such as salmon, tuna, herring, and mackerel, reduce the risk of silent brain damage.

Coffee enhances memory thanks to the active ingredient caffeine.

Caffeine also stimulates the brain to produce neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine.

Green tea contains compounds such as catechins and L-theanine, which have positive effects on the brain.

Green tea also contains small amounts of caffeine, which stimulates the central nervous system, improving blood flow to the brain and memory.

Berries such as strawberries, grapes, blueberries, raspberries… contain large amounts of flavonoid antioxidants, which protect brain cells from oxidative damage and inflammation.

Colorful vegetables provide a variety of antioxidants.

These substances help protect brain cells from damage caused by free radicals, helping to prevent microscopic inflammatory conditions in the brain.

Eggs have nutrients that help improve memory.

Eggs provide rich choline.

Nuts such as almonds, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin, flax, chia… provide omega-3 in the form of ALA.

Nuts are also rich in antioxidants such as polyphenols, vitamin E and B vitamins… that protect the brain from damage caused by oxidative stress, the main cause of cognitive decline.

Beans are rich in B vitamins, magnesium, and iron, which contribute to reducing homocysteine levels in the blood – a factor related to cognitive decline and promoting Alzheimer’s disease progression in the elderly.

Doctor Duy Tung said building a scientific diet helps maintain overall health and improve quality of life.

People with signs of unusual, sudden or severe memory loss should see a neurologist for appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
