For many people, regardless of age, experiencing short lapses of memory are normal and are of no concern. Studies have shown, however, that there are many things you can do to keep your mind sharp and functioning well.
Increase the amount of blood and oxygen flow to your brain by getting regular exercise. Not only does your brain need oxygen to function, exercise helps to reduce stress, which can have a negative impact on brain function. Also, eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants, found in these two food groups, work to keep brain cells in optimal condition. Consider boosting your vitamin B intake.
Sometimes, following the above steps just doesn't cut it. That's when you should start taking supplements. Any sort of supplement that gives your brain the added boost in adrenaline and most importantly nutrients will greatly improve your cognitive capabilities. I myself take one Procera avh pill every day before I go to bed and it seems to do the trick. It's probably one of the only supplements that has helped me prevent short term memory loss (which, believe me, gets worse as you age!) None of the over the counter stuff quite cut it for me. There's an in-depth review of Procera and other supplements at the link down below.
