Foods That Improve Memory


Peanuts
Peanuts are rich in PC and PE which are the important nutrients needed by the nervous system. They can effectively slow down the degradation of brain functionality, inhibit platelet aggregation and prevent the occurrence of thrombosis. Lots of experiments already confirmed that regular consumption of peanuts may improve blood circulation, enhance memory and slow down the aging process.


Milk
Milk is rich in protein, calcium, and a variety of essential amino acids for building brain cells. The calcium in milk can be easily absorbed by human body, and it is an important nutrient for maintaining the functionality of brain. In addition, it also contains other nutrients such as vitamin B1 which is beneficial for the build-up of nerve cells. So, a glass of warm milk before going to bed can effectively relieve the symptom of insomnia at night.

Eggs
Most of the brain functionality is closely linked with the acetylcholine levels in the brain. Many experiments showed that egg yolk is rich in lecithin enzyme and it can break down into a great amount of acetylcholine which can nourish the brain and enhance memory. Some nutritional studies confirmed that eating one of two eggs a day can supply adequate nutrients to maintain the functionality of brain.

Oranges
Oranges contain a great amount of vitamins a, b1 and c. They are typical alkaline foods which can eliminate the damages to the nervous system caused by consumption of acidic food.

MSG
As a common seasoning substance in our kitchen, the main ingredient is sodium glutamate. It can be easily converted into l-glutamate by the help of gastric acid. It is the only amino acid which is a part of the metabolism in human brain and it is essential to promote intellectual development and maintain the brain functionality. As a result, constant intake of MSG is helpful to improve the intellectual deficiency and impaired memory. Moreover, consumption of MSG can also increase the level of acetylcholine in the brain. So, it can also relieve the symptoms of neurasthenia.
