The stress of daily life often causes us to forget essential things at times and cause us to bring it to mind randomly somewhere hours later

Some of the common memory problems that we often face are forgetting our spectacles or wallet in house while leaving for office or forgetting to recall names we heard ages ago

Again, sometimes we open the cupboard to search for a particular thing and the next second we find ourselves staring blankly there wondering what were we exactly looking for

Celebrity nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee feels that there isn’t any reason to panic or get upset when we can’t remember something as it would only make us feel more stressed

She claims that our memory can be effectively improved and sharpened with a brain-healthy, well-balanced diet, right lifestyle choices and memory enhancing techniques

Mukerjee has suggested these effective tips for combating memory problems-

Keep up your Vitamin B intake especially Vitamin B12 and B9 which enhances memory

Eat polyphenol rich food that can boost brain health like jamun, green tea, pomegranates, blue berries, black berries and dark chocolates

Consume basil seeds as it is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, polyphenols which help in managing neuro inflammation thereby preventing cognitive decline

Take sufficient quantity of magnesium rich food daily that is vital for learning and memory  like green leafy vegetables, nuts, whole grains, nuts, soyabean, milk, seafood

Keep your brain charged by sleeping for minimum 8 hours a day and by engaging with brain challenging activities like riddles, puzzles, chess or any other board games

Take gingko supplements as Gingko Biloba is a herb packed with antioxidants that are known to have a promising effect on several issues linked to memory loss

You can also take Acetyl-L- Cartinine supplements that are also effective for memory, alertness and cognition

Do regular exercise and meditation as it is the best way to protect yourself from age related memory problems and remain sharp right up to the twilight years of your life
