We all have moments of forgetfulness, especially with life being so busy. This can be totally normal in small doses, however, having a bad memory can be extremely frustrating. So what can you do to improve your memory? Here are a few suggestions from The IV Hub in Medford, MA
Natural Ways to Improve Your Memory
Keeping your body hydrated is one element in your overall health, along with helping your memory! You can improve your memory recall and overall brain function with a dehydration IV at The IV Hub in Medford, MA. Drinking water is great, but sometimes you need a little extra hydration- especially if you’ve been recently depleted. By having hydrating IV therapy at The IV Hub In Medford, MA you’re not only adding needed hydration to your body, but you can also incorporate IV nutrition with the necessary vitamins & minerals as well.
Eat Less Sugar
Did you know that elevated glucose in the bloodstream can be harmful to the brain? Consuming excessive sugar can result in slowed cognitive function and deficits in memory and attention. A healthy, low-sugar diet can be as good for your brain as it is for your heart. By eating fruits, vegetables, and whole grains your body will see improvements in many areas, including your brain function. Research shows that the best brain foods are the same ones that protect your heart and blood vessels, including the following green, leafy vegetables. You should also choose low-fat protein sources, such as fish, beans, and skinless poultry.
Take Fish Oil Supplement
There are many benefits to taking a fish oil supplement, as it is one of the most common dietary supplements used today. These supplements are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and that is great for your health in many ways.
Here are some of their benefits:
- Omega-3 has been known to boost brain function, reducing various mental conditions like bipolar and schizophrenia.
- Studies show that people who have fish as a regular part of their diet have a lower risk of experiencing heart problems. Fish oil supplements provide the same health benefits as eating fish.
- Fish oil supplements can also reduce weight and help to manage type 2 diabetes.
- Fish oil has also been shown to help improve eyesight, as our eyes greatly rely on omega-3 fats.
Maintain a Healthy Weight
Bodyweight has a surprising impact on overall brain function. A higher BMI has been linked to decreased blood flow in the brain, and that has been associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease and mental illness. As a person’s weight increases, the regions of the brain go down in activity and blood flow, according to a new brain imaging study in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. (Source- Science Daily). The IV Hub in Medford MA offers lipo-mino weight loss shots that can be added to any weight loss plan and we also offer a Skinny drip IV at the IV Hub in Medford, MA.
Playing “brain games” keeps your mind fresh and alert – plus, they’re fun to do! According to Lumosity (a popular brain-game company) after just 10 weeks, their users improved more than the control group. The assessments consisted of working memory, short-term memory, processing speed, problem-solving, fluid reasoning, and overall cognitive function. The IV Hub also offers Vitamin B12 shots to help with your memory.
Get Enough Sleep
Although sleeping gives your body the rest it needs, your mind is still working. When you are sleeping, your mind is processing and consolidating your memories from the day. If you don’t get enough sleep – who knows where all those memories will go! You could even create false memories.
Drink Less Alcohol
Doctors have identified several ways that drinking alcohol can affect a person’s memory. Alcohol can destroy nerve cells & this affects a person’s memory in both the short and long term. Also, people who drink too much alcohol are often deficient in vitamin B-1, or thiamine, with is vital to providing energy to the brain and nerve cells.
Alcohol can also affect thiamine in the following ways:
- Heavy may not eat a healthy diet and miss out on key nutrients.
- Excessive alcohol can irritate the stomach lining, and that affects how the stomach absorbs nutrients.
- Heavy alcohol use can cause vomiting, which keeps the stomach and intestines from absorbing nutrients.
- Thiamine deficiency can cause dementia.
