As we age our memory might slip a bit. One way to combat against memory loss is through eating the right foods and getting the right vitamins and minerals.

Some of the top vitamins and minerals needed to improve your memory are vitamins B6, B12, D, C and E; and omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.

Take a look at some of the top foods that contain these vitamins and minerals:

  • Leafy green vegetables (spinach, kale and turnip greens)
  • Salmon and cold-water fish like halibut, tuna, mackerel and sardines
  • Beans
  • Nuts
  • Flax seeds
  • Canola oil
  • Berries
  • Dark-skinned fruits (plums, oranges, red grapes, cherries)
