Foods and vitamins that help retain memory

Are you worried about memory loss? There is good news, research has found that chemicals in certain foods will help boost memory and may help prevent future memory loss.

If you are looking to sharpen your memory and boost your focus, the solution may be as close as your kitchen. The following foods will help keep you in focus:

Whole Eggs

The yolk of the egg is rich in choline.  Choline is a nutrient in the vitamin B family and is important for a healthy brain. Choline is important in supporting your memory neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Eggs are great to incorporate into salads, as breakfast or egg salad sandwich.


Research shows that beetroot has a compound called nitrate that can improve memory, focus and concentration.  Nitrates can help dilate your blood vessels and therefore improve blood flow to your brain.Try roasted beetroot in your salad.


This amazing seafood favourite has very high levels of vitamin B12.  Vitamin B12 is important for healthy nerves and brain cells.  Shrimp is also rich in omega 3 fatty acids.  This nutrient is a great brain food and can help improve your memory function as you age.


One of the remarkable and well researched chemicals found in rosemary oil offering strong therapeutic properties, by the name of 1,8 cineole, can be linked to increased brain performance. 1 Just the smell alone can enhance overall memory.

The study revealed that the more 1,8 cineole absorbed into their bloodstreams, the better their performance on speed and accuracy tests.Add some rosemary oil diffuser in your room or keep a plant on your windowsill.

Olive oil and nuts

Vitamin E found in foods such as nuts seeds and olive oil has antioxidant properties. This potent antioxidant may help protect neurons or nerve cells. When it comes to Alzheimer’s disease, neurons in certain parts of the brain will start to die.  This jump starts the cascade of events leading to cognitive deterioration.
