FEED YOUR BRAIN

Making new memories is a chemical process which involves making proteins. For this to happen, you have to get the right nutrients from your food.

Avoid too many ‘ferric’ or ‘ferrous’ fortified foods, such as breakfast cereals, bread and flour. Opt for plenty of antioxidant-rich fruit, such as blueberries, and eat crunchy veg like carrots, celery and green peppers.
