As we grow older, we tend to forget what we did in the morning, what we had for lunch, and even the time we need to attend an event. According to a recent study, 40% of people aged 65 and above have suffered from some type of memory illness. There are simple ways to boost memory without needing to take medications. One of these ways is to eat foods that help your brain work, leading to it to be able to remember more things. The first is our blue friend; the blueberry. How are blueberries effective, you ask? Well, blueberries consist of antioxidants that help to fight oxidative stress and inflammation. It is necessary to go against these harmful agents as they can lead to containing brain aging and other neurological diseases. The next food on our list is; the broccoli. Just like blueberries, they are packed with antioxidants that help to fight off inflammatory and oxidant effects. Broccoli also consists of Vitamin K; some studies have shown an increase in memory with an increased intake of vitamin K. The final food on our list is a fan favorite; dark chocolate. Many studies have found dark chocolate contains certain brain boosters such as flavonoids and antioxidants. What is a Flavonoid, and does it have anything to do with flavor? Well,  Flavonoids help areas of the brain that deal with learning and memory, which some researchers say help to decrease many age-related mental illnesses. Regardless, all of these and many other foods can help to increase memory by completely stopping the causes which lead to it. I hope that this helps and you see a difference in the number of things you can remember on a daily basis! Cheers!
