If you want a better memory, you can do a number of things. For example, studies have shown that your risk of developing Alzheimer's is reduced if you do crossword puzzles on a regular basis. You can also do other types of puzzles. Love to read? It's a great way to exercise your memory. Try to recall as many details as you possibly can about what you've just read.

You can even try quizzing yourself on a variety of things. You can also try eating specific foods. Studies have identified a number of "super foods" that help boost memory. Today, we'll talk about a number of these foods and how you can include them in your diet.

Fish can help with memory improvement. Fish is an excellent source of EFAs, specifically omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, fish is rich in DHA or docosahexaenoic acid. What DHA does is ensure the proper firing of neurons in the brain.

If your neurons are firing properly, your memory remains strong. When you increase your fish consumption, it will lead to a decrease in your red meat consumption. Cutting back on your meat consumption will also do wonders for your health. So stock up on fish (especially salmon) the next time you go to the grocery store.

Tyrosine proteins help with brain health so you'll want to eat more of the foods that are high in these proteins. The number of neurotransmitters in the brain is increased with the help of these proteins. What happens then is that memory is given a big boost. It's a good idea to eat foods that are high in tyrosine proteins even though the brain naturally produces them. Both soy and dairy products are excellent sources of these proteins.

Meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans alike have food sources that have these important proteins. So if you don't eat any animal-based products at all, you can get your tyrosine proteins from soy products. If you're a meat eater or lacto-vegetarian, you can get your tyrosine proteins from milk. Make sure, though, that the foods you eat have low salt content; otherwise, you'll develop a host of other health issues.

The healthy fats found in eggs will help in improving brain function. Eggs are also protein-rich. The great thing about this super food is that it's super easy to incorporate in your regular diet. So many different foods you eat list eggs as one of the ingredients. You can also just eat eggs plainly, as they can be prepared in dozens of different ways.

There are so many different things that you can do to help improve your brain function. There are games and puzzles and different activities that you can do. You can also exercise your brain; there are many brain exercises out there so try them out. Try changing your diet as well. It's easy enough and sure to improve your memory.
