Are you studying for exams and you find that you can’t remember what you are learning? There are a couple of things that you can do to help improve your memory. First and most important is sleep, you cannot underestimate the value of good quality sleep. Stress, fear, worry, and anxiety will affect your ability to concentrate and to remember what you are reading. Mindfulness, relaxation, and meditation can help relax the body and the mind so that your adrenalin is not pumping and you’re in a more relaxed state of mind.
A healthy diet will fuel the brain. Omega oils found in fish, nuts, and seeds are the basic brain food. A variety of grains and rice will provide B vitamins for energy. Iron found in red meat, molasses, dried fruit is important for cognitive function. Eggs are rich in choline also a food for the brain. Water is super important so that you keep hydrated. Exercise too plays its role, as it will get the blood flowing around the body and keep you in good health.
If you don’t eat a varied diet, you may benefit from a supplement. Omega oils are the most important in my opinion. You’ll need to start taking them now. As it takes time for them to build up in the system. I like Eskimo Oil as it is a good quality, high strength omega oil, you simply take one teaspoon per day. It doesn’t taste fishy and is also available in capsule form.
Revive Mastermind is one I have spoken about before. This contains omega oils as well as B vitamins, choline, vitamin C and Zinc. I like this because students need only take one sachet per day three times a week. This means that a box of thirty will last you ten weeks.
If you’re feeling anxious one of our customers’ favourite remedies is Higher Nature Balance For Nerves. It works well for many of them. This contains a mix of magnesium, passion flower, L Theanine and B vitamins. You simply take between two and four tablets depending on your needs. Customers tell us that it helps with sleep too.
Let us know if you have any questions so that we can help get you on the right track.
