Can I take memory vitamins every day?
eat fish every day it will be much better for effective results
Every time you eat you take vitamins.
For memory, you need
B vitamins (especially B6, B9, B12)
choline (found in lecithins: eggs, soya …)
Magnesium (nuts …) and omega 3 (oily fish) don’t hurt either.
All of this can be found in the diet and / or in good, well-dosed supplements.
An amino acid, L-tyrosine, is necessary for concentration and alertness. A doctor may prescribe it for you.
Ok thank you
The brain is a greedy
To function well, our brain needs forty nutritional elements: 15 minerals and trace elements, 8 amino acids, 13 vitamins and 4 fatty acids.
It alone consumes 20% of the energy supplied to the body by our food! Glucose (bread, sugar, cereal), linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid (vegetable oils such as rapeseed, nuts and soybeans) constitute for him the delicacies of choice.
Any deficiency in any of these elements can affect the functioning of nerve cells, and therefore memory. And to avoid deficiencies, you have to eat a variety of foods.
The group of B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B9, B12 … used for example in the symptomatic treatment of Korsakoff syndrome), vitamins A, E, F, C, are also essential and are provided by food fresh.
Foods for memory
All fruits and vegetables, fish (even if the role of phosphorus in memory performance has not been proven!) Are favorable to the proper functioning of memory.
On the other hand, excessive consumption of saturated fats (cold meats, whole dairy products, cheese, butter) and red meats must be avoided.
On the other hand, certain food supplements are recommended for the memory: wheat, oats, rye, sesame, nuts, seaweed, royal jelly and … chewing gum!
A study carried out by Japanese neurologists from Gifu University has indeed shown that chewing gum is a memory stimulant. Chewing would produce a kind of stress diversion from our brain and, concomitantly, an activation of the hippocampus more important than usual.
But before the consumption of chewing gum, certain substances must feed our brain so that it properly maintains our memory. These substances are mainly:
Dimethylaminoethanol or DMAE, a natural element close to choline and which facilitates the synthesis of acetylcholine in the brain. It is found in sardines and anchovies;
Choline, a neurotransmitter close to group B vitamins which is part of the composition of acetylcholine, one of the main neurotransmitters of memory. The list of elements rich in choline is long: egg (particularly rich in choline), soybeans, artichokes, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, liver, pork, beef, shrimp, cod, cod, salmon, pine nuts, almonds, wheat germ… ;
Methionine, an amino acid, found in: cod, tuna, anchovies, poultry, pork, veal, Parmesan …;
Acetyl-L carnitine, another amino acid found in: mutton, lamb and beef, chicken, milk, yeast;
Vitamin B1, essential for the proper functioning of memory and the nervous system in general. Very present in: liver, kidneys, eggs, oatmeal, chocolate, sunflower seeds …
Memory and chocolate
Very rich in potassium and magnesium, the (moderate) consumption of chocolate is nevertheless highly recommended for its role as a brain and muscle stimulant.
Chocolate also acts on the brain via three substances: theobromine, stimulator of the nervous system; caffeine and phenylethylamine which are psychostimulants and therefore positive for attention and concentration.
However, chocolate would not have all the virtues that are usually attributed to it. A somewhat usurped reputation due to a high phosphorus content whose effects on memory remain to be established …
Thank you very much for this additional information!
And if you eat balanced enough, all you need is in your diet
No need for stamps or other
Let’s say that I have more and more to remember my lessons …
I can spend hours in front of a lesson to learn by heart, I do not remember much,
but what amazes me in fact is that y ‘ at 2/3 years old, it was the opposite, that is to say that I read my lessons before sleeping, and the next day I knew by heart …
So it is certainly your method of memory work that you must review, also think of making cuts, staying glued to a book for hours it will not necessarily make you remember, just like your food it’s the quality that counts not the quantity and do not believe that the stamps sold in pharmacies will change much …. business is business
Lol ok, and also 2/3 years ago I ate every midday in tuna salad sandwiches, for 2 years I ate that, maybe it also helps the memory because there is fish. Despite not being in large quantities.
And then the lessons were easier ^^.
In any case, to be in physical and intellectual shape
, you have to eat well
Were you taking a supplement?
What did it contain?
No I was not taking any supplement.
The only time I recently took supplements was for the French Bac, for memory and against stress. I don’t know if it worked but hey, I remembered a part!
I think in fact that you lack essential nutritional elements, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, etc. No sandwiches except to help out!
you can also eat ORGANIC hazelnuts and almonds it helps for memory because it contains magnesium.
Do you eat well at home in the evening? I mean a full meal?
Uh no: X
well, yes, but I don’t have dessert ^^
