Serious MUST EAT Nutrition and Memory Food

Nutrition and Memory Food:

Healthy body, healthy mind! Nutrition and memory food play an integral part in our overall wellbeing. Certain foods support our brain function and that is what we are going to be talking about today!
Eating healthy reduces the risk of disease and provides the body with nutrients and energy!

Today, we are going to be diving into food that Electrifies the Mind by increasing our memory!

Before We Get Stared

Please consult with your physician if you are taking any medications before trying the herbs we have listed in this article. Some of the herbs we’ve mentioned in this article may cause complications concerning any medications you are currently taking!

Foods That Improve Memory


Blueberries appear to have memory-enhancing properties because of flavonoids known as anthocyanins, which are also why blueberries are blue! Anthocyanins are also present in foods that are red, blue or purple.


A study shows drinking apple juice may improve memory by preventing the decline of an essential neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine.


Gotu Kola

This herb alleviates the symptoms of anxiety and stimulates brain functions to improve memory due to triterpenes which enhance the formation of collagen in cartilage, bones and connective tissue and help produce neurotransmitters(the chemical messengers in the brain). To use this herb, make tea with the dried leaves! You can add lemon or honey to overcome the bitterness (I’ve tried it, which is why I remembered to write this article today, it’s bitter)

Gingko Biloba

Gingko Biloba’s antioxidant stabilizes the structure of brain and nerve cells protecting them from oxidative attacks from free radicals. Alzheimer’s disease has been proven to be prevented when using Gingko Biloba regularly! This herb reduces mental fatigue and increases energy! Good stuff!


This herb is used to enhance memory and has been proven effective in the treatment of memory loss.

Blessed Thistle

This herb has been shown to improve circulation in the body and purify the blood eliminating toxins. It is also credited with improving digestion and enhancing your memory. Making tea with dried leaves is the best way to use Blessed Thistle. Blessed thistle can be taken up to three times daily, preferably just before meals. You can make your blessed thistle tea seeping its leaves and flowers in boiling water for over 10 minutes.


This herb has lots of carnosic acids, which enhances blood flow. The smell of rosemary can improve memory performance, enhance memory, calm nerves and help prevent the breakdown of neurotransmitters in the brain. Make tea with it! Or, just smell it. The smell of rosemary can significantly improve our ability to remember to do something (wow, start sniffing this stuff!)

Peppermint Tea

Peppermint Tea is thought to improve long term memory! Nutrition and Memory Food that you can drink! Yum!

If Fishy Stuff Isn’t Your Thing

    I have recently learned to embrace foods high in omega fatty acids. Besides being delicious, they are so beneficial to our health and brain function!

    I am often concerned about my memory and general ability to concentrate. Admitably, my diet is not the best and is likely at least partially to blame. Almonds and herbal tea sound like something I could easily work into my daily routine.

    I love how carefully written this article was, with the encouragement to talk to one’s healthcare professional, and the subsequent list of truly healthy herbs and foods.

    There are some articles claiming how some exotic plant will cure all that ails you- and then there are articles like this one: realistic, informative, and genuinely user-friendly. The extensive list of healthy fats and how our brains need them- YES! The calming effect of easy-to-find herbs-YES. The author did a great job of offering a wide variety of nutritious foods that can accommodate a variety of grocery budgets. The world needs more articles like this one to combat the extremist trends and misinformation out there- just honest, wholesome dietary suggestions that promote a healthy gut microbiome and optimal cognitive functioning.

    I had read somewhere (I have a doubt though) that blue foods helped a lot with memory and sight. I can’t remember exactly what it said though (I guess I should try eating berries more often). That’s a really useful article ! Thanks !

    I didn’t know that rosemary stimulated the brain! I will definitely put more often on my lunch menu, I love this herb. But one very important thing is not mentioned here: WATER!
    Almost 85% of your brain consists of water. When dehydration occurs in the organism, the brain releases the hormone “cortisol”, which reduces the “dendrites”. These side-effects are involved in the exchange of information between the nerve cells. A reduction of these dendrites leads to a diminished brain activity. Therefore, you (an adult) should drink at least 1.5 liters of water a day to keep the brain active.

    I am a firm believer of eating lots of veggies and at least 2 fruits daily. All the fruits and veggies you mentioned will not only help with our memory but protect us against many diseases and help us have a better, easier old age. I have reduced meat and dairy to a minimum (1-2 weekly max) and I feel 20 years younger so there might be something here as well.
