So true, yet even more impactful on memory is activity. First influencer on memory, cognition, brain function is movement! After that comes diet, mental engagement, etc. Eat fish while taking a walk. Ha haaaaa

Coconut oil is very good for mental function improvement. May be used on toast in hot ceral smoothies or stir fries even baked goods.

Let's see. My normal breakfast will be whole grain oats.Lunch will be a can of sometimes beans, peas or rice. Typically no meat in either meal. Supper- fish or chicken or meat & feash vegetables. Get milk in the morning. I don't know whether that diet helps memory loss that much, but it is great for weight loss, even though all my canned lunch veggies are cooked with either ham or bacon.

Put down that steak and order fish!!

 

Mono- and polyunsaturated fats may be the heroes in the dietary battle to preserve memory.  What dietary changes have you made to preserve your memory?
