Foods for Improving Memory?
I looked around for information on food that helps to improve brain function and memory. It’s difficult to get accurate information on nutrition from the Internet.
It looks like many of the articles on diet and brain function are using the same sources. The common theme of all the articles is basically just to eat well:
- omega-3 fatty acids
- green leafy vegetables
- nuts and seeds
- whole grains
- berries and other fruit
I went to the store and picked up some whole grain bread, blueberries, spinach, fish, and other foods frequently mentioned.
Caffeine and Memory?
I’ve been wondering whether it’s better avoid coffee. I couldn’t find much definitive information on it, so I switched to drinking tea most of the time. Tea has less caffeine then coffee. Tea also contains theanine which is something I’m going to research more later.
I like oolong tea because it has less caffeine than black tea, and tastes better to me than most green tea. Ideally, I wouldn’t take any caffeine, but it’s difficult to stop.
