'So What Are Your Favorite Herbs for
Improving Memory?'

By Paula

I remember I searched for tips on improving memory when I was in high-school, especially during exams.

It's been a continuos quest since then to find the best herbs for memory and other ways to improve memory.

Among my friends, lecithin and also phosphorus were very popular. Everyone knew fish, and also matches ;), contained phosphorus.

Back to present days, the exams are over, but I encounter more and more examples that remind me we should take better care of our memory.

It saddens me when my grandfather, who is 84 years old and suffers from brain memory loss, asks me who am I.

It makes me wish to have a good memory even if I would happen to live a hundred.

What are my three favorite herbs for improving memory?

#1 Lemon Balm

I use primarily Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) because I was impressed by its effects on Alzhmeyer disease. Even if I use it for other purposes as well, it is one of my favorite herbs for memory.

#2 Ramsons

I particularly like the flavor of Ramsons (Allium ursinum). It seems this wild herb enhances memory and concentration ability.

I eat as much as I can in the spring. It's too bad that I can find it only for two weeks per year at the farmers market.

#3 Astragalus

I also take Astragalus capsules for memory improvement. This herb has a tonic effect on the nervous system among other numerous benefits. I bought the capsules to boost my immune system, but they serve double duty.

However, if someone asked me to choose only one herb for improving memory, that will be Ramsons of course. It is such a delish herb, like my favorite cook, Jamie Oliver, would say ;)
