I shamelessly lifted today’s blog post with five memory loss tips that will also help prevent Alzheimer’s disease from my good friend Dr. Ben Kim’s excellent newsletter.
According to neuroscientists at an Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Dublin, the five best steps you can take to prevent memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease are:
1. Ensure regular intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Healthy sources include:
- Freshly ground flax seeds
- Wild salmon
- Cod liver oil (Carlson)
2. Stay physically fit.
3. Reduce stress.
4. Enjoy a rich and varied social life that involves activities that mentally stimulate you.
5. Think young.
Now, those are five tips anyone can put into action. So incorporate them into your life starting today!
