8 Memory-Boosting Foods You Need to Add to Your Diet
Who doesn't want to decrease time wasted looking for misplaced car keys or remembering a long-forgotten computer password?
Keep your memory in prime shape by regularly eating fruits, vegetables, and proteins that are known for boosting memory and decreasing your risk for Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
Foods such as avocados, sunflower seeds, and peanut butter are packed with vitamin E, which is associated with decreasing your risk for Alzheimer's.
Other foods such as green tea, dark berries, and apples contain antioxidants which helps protect the brain from inflammation that can lead to memory loss, or from free radicals that can damage brain cells.
