There are a variety of ways to keep your brain healthy and stimulated. You’ve probably heard that intellectual stimulation (like crosswords, chess and reading) is important, and research has shown that a number of neuroprotective vitamins, minerals, and other brain health supplements can increase the odds of keeping your memory sharp as you get older. In addition, Dr. Whitaker recommends that everyone should be taking an antioxidant-rich daily multivitamin and a high-quality omega-3 supplement to support your body’s inflammatory response. B-complex vitamins are also crucial for optimal cognitive function. In one study, Finnish researchers found correlations between higher blood levels of vitamin B12/folate and better test scores. If you are older, you can step up your program by adding phosphatidylserine to boost levels of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter vital for maintaining healthy memory function.
