Memory: How Herbs Can Help Improve Memory

In addition to your diet and exercise, there's still another natural method you can use to boost your memory.  Herbs.  

There are several herbs that contain an outstanding array of phytonutrients to help you either regain a sagging memory or help maintain a healthy one.

 

Just be sure, before you start to add any dietary supplement to your regime that you let your health care practitioner know.  He'll be able to tell you if any supplement you intend to take interacts adversely with medications you may be on.  Additionally, you may wish to consult with a professional herbalist as well to receive all the proper instruction and insight.

 

There are many herbs that claim to help boost memory; many of them work by aiding in your circulatory system.  When your cardiovascular system is pumping at peak capacity, then it can nourish even the smallest of capillaries in your brain with more vitamins and minerals.

 

And that's exactly why the herb bilberry is extremely important for good brain health.  Bilberry, the European cousin of the American blueberry, carries a host of antioxidant properties. It possesses a legendary reputation as an aid to improving blood flow, especially to the tiniest of capillaries of your body.  (That's one of the reasons it's an excellent choice for eye health as well!)

 

Another excellent choice for brain and memory health is a Russian herb called rhodiola rosea.  This is, perhaps, Mother Nature's most tightly guarded and most powerful brain boosting secret.  It possesses a remarkable stress-protective capacity.  It certainly isn't as well known as some of the other herbs, but if you can find it, you may just be pleasantly surprised at the benefits it can provide.

 

Of course, the granddaddy of all herbs for memory is ginkgo biloba.  This herb has been used for millennium as part of traditional Chinese medicine to help improve memory and concentration.

 

 

The following two items aren't herbs, but natural compounds that have proven beneficial over several years of study and use.  The first is phosphatidylserine.  It promotes a more efficient concentration level and reinvigorates a failing memory.  You might find it shortened to PS in your health food store.  This substance is found naturally occurring in all of your cells.  However, as you age, your body produces less of it.

 

 

The second compound is normally referred to DMAE and this helps with your ability to learn as well as boosting your levels of concentration.  DMAE can also help revive a sagging memory and contribute to an overall greater mental clarity.
