How to improve your memoryFrom Parish Pump
Don’t forget to eat your greens – or you could be forgetting a lot of other things as well. It seems that a portion of green leafy vegetables each day can go a long way towards safeguarding the memory of older people. In a recent study, it was found that people who eat greens regularly can have a memory capacity equivalent to the memory of a person 11 years younger.
A recent study at Rush University Medical Centre in Chicago found that people in their 80s who ate just half a cup a day of certain green leafy vegetables (lettuce, spinach, kale and collard greens; all rich in vitamin K) had significantly better memory than those older people who did not.
