First Aid For the Brain (Part 2)

Reverse Memory Loss with these tips!

1. Protect your brain's inner clock - avoid artificial Light by using blue light blocking glasses after 7pm or when the sun goes down. Get them here: This will help your brain wind down and allow you to get some restful sleep.

2. Load up on this key brain nutrient - DHA (one of the omega 3 fatty acids) has its highest concentration in tissues of the brain and in the retinas of the eyes. Simply stated, it helps produce energy that the starving mitochondria (the powerhouses of our cells) in our brains crave. This can be taken in supplement form but the foods highest in this nutrient are fish, crab, lobster and shrimp.

3. Help your body build new mitochondria - If you really want to beat memory loss, you absolutely must get outside and get active! I know for some of you, this may be a swear word and for others this is already part of your lifestyle. But if you don't exercise, start by finding something you like to do, whether that is taking your dog for a walk or going for a jog. If you already exercise, take note, a key element to this is that you get OUTSIDE!
