Herbs have also been used for centuries to aid memory and brain function. Rosemary, Ginko and Ginseng are popular.
Water is the single most neglected part of a healthy diet.

Your 5,6 or 7 a day fresh fruits and crunchy vegetables (try juicing them) are all important. Choose whole grain rice, bread and pasta wherever possible. Eat lots of fish, poultry (without the skin) and lean meat. Now comes the bit that most of us forget.. drinking! It is essential for the brain to stay hydrated. So drink lots of water and avoid excessive alcohol and other drinks that dehydrate as this can add to fuzzy thinking and memory loss.
