Memory Loss Treatment


The best memory loss treatment is a combination of a balanced diet, regular exercise and an overall healthy lifestyle. Although memory loss has come to be accepted as an inevitable companion to old age, most memory problems are a result of years of faulty and negligent habits.  Although there are many drugs for memory loss available in the market today, most of them have little or no benefits and can have some serious side effects. However, there are many herbs and natural remedies that have been proven to be effective in memory loss treatment.

Your diet plays a very important role as it essentially fuels your body (including your brain!). Many people unknowingly have processed foods that contain saturated fats. These fats are extremely unhealthy and tend to clog up your arteries, putting your at a greater risk of getting a heart attack.

This in turn affects your blood circulation and thus has a great negative impact on your memory.  On the other hand, including mono-unsaturated fats in your diet can actually reduce your cholesterol and prevent heart problems. Doctors recommended eating a few avocados everyday as they are high in unsaturated fats and have been seen to improve memory loss if eaten regularly. A diet that contains large amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables provides the body with many vitamins and nutrients essential for strengthening the memory. In addition to this, fruits and vegetables are easier to digest and contain plenty of soluble and insoluble fiber which is essential for proper digestion. A sluggish digestive system generally warranties a sluggish mind. Foods like oysters, meat and dairy products are high in zinc and will help to boost your memory. Vitamin C and Vitamin E are powerful antioxidants, and having a diet that is rich in these vitamins has been seen to stop age-related cognitive decline. According to recent research, regular exercise can not only prevent memory loss but can also cure it. Regular exercise ensures a higher metabolic rate and aids circulation thus improving higher order cognitive processes and assisting any ongoing memory loss treatment.

There are also several herbs that are used for memory loss treatment. Ginkgo Biloba is probably the most well known of all herbs that alleviate memory loss. Huperzia serrata is a traditional Chinese herb that improves memory and cognitive function. Although you may not be able to purchase fresh Huperzia serrata, you can consider capsule supplements. These herbs are a safe and natural method of memory loss treatment.
