The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

Memory loss worries many of us as we get older. You might wonder whether you’ll become one of the 10 million baby boomers who develops Alzheimer’s disease. Or, maybe you’re simply seeking ways to fortify your memory with memory supplements, memory vitamins, or memory games. Our brain is a powerful thing, but it’s often limited by things like fear, habit, and poor health.

Challenging your brain to learn new things is another important way to prevent memory loss. This can be anything from working crossword puzzles to learning a foreign language. Exercise also can help enhance memory in a variety of ways. For example, it generates blood flow and formation of nerve cells in a portion of the brain called the dentate gyrus. And, it reduces other risk factors, such as cardiovascular disease, indirectly enhancing brain health.

Whether you’re a college student studying for an important test or an aging baby boomer concerned about forgetting a recent doctor’s appointment, there are a number of ways to improve the way you use your mind. Check out these tips:

Supplements are also mentioned as having an effect on brain function. NutraceuticsRx’s Aniracetam contains an amino acid-like compound that clinical studies suggest can enhance perception, memory, focus, concentration and creativity. Aniracetam increases communication between the two hemispheres of the brain and stimulates AMPA and NMDA receptor sites shown to be important in memory formation and concentration.
