These findings have been considered important because the memory performance of study participants, who were all healthy young adults, increased in a relatively short period of time. "Improvements in this type of exercise memory could help explain the previously established link between aerobic exercise and better academic performance," said lead study author Jennifer Heisz, an badistant professor at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada.
The results of the study revealed a potential mechanism of how exercise and cognitive training may be changing the brain to support cognition.
While physical exercise can improve your cognitive power, some foods can also help increase your memory. Here are some foods that you should add to your daily diet.
1. Nuts and seeds
Nuts and seeds are a reservoir of nutrients that help improve brain function, including improving memory. Pumpkin seeds are loaded with zinc that plays a vital role in sharpening your memory. Brain-shaped nuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and other essential nutrients that help sharpen your memory. Eating a handful of nuts and seeds can help improve the power of your brain.
Eating cranberries daily can help combat the onset of short-term memory loss. Berries in general, when consumed regularly can help delay the symptoms of memory loss.
3. Green Vegetables
Green vegetables are full of iron, vitamin E, K and B9 or folate, which is extremely important for the development of brain cells, keeping at bay the issues related to memory.
Enriched with vitamin E, avocados are also loaded with antioxidants that help keep the brain healthy and alert. Avocados are related to the reduction of Alzheimer's risk.
