Healthy Lifestyle…Memory Tip !
It’s no surprise that people who live a healthy lifestyle have better cognitive function, and of course, better memories. (And very likely a lot of HAPPY memories as well.) It’s also no surprise that Marilu is very active in both of these arenas. This week, in honor of Marilu’s memory class in the member’s area we’re going to share some of her best healthy tips from her new book bestselling book, TOTAL MEMORY MAKEOVER.
EAT THE RAINBOW
Antioxidants help protect your brain cells and keep mental functioning at a high level. Fruits, especially citrus fruits, and many vegetable are antioxidant rich. Eat more oranges, bananas, apples, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes, mangoes, kiwis, and blueberries. In order to balance free radicals in the body it is important to eat foods rich in antioxidants since these help reduce the damage of oxidatve stress in the brain. As we age the natural antioxidants produced by our body tend to decrease, and this increases the risk for more memory-related problems, diseases, and age-related issues.
