Natural brain boosting remedies will rank high for most of us especially if you are suffering from brain fog. The saying ‘use it or lose it’ is so true when it comes to our brain functionality. Engaging in daily crosswords, Sudoku, and mentally stimulating games can help improve memory. Most of us will look for ways to keep our minds healthy and strong; one way to do this is to feed the brain the right types of food. Eat plant-based foods; plant nutrients support memory retention and help lower blood pressure. Cut back on animal products and choose healthy fats; saturated fats slow down your cognitive function.
