How can you support your memory?

Supplements that support brain health can help maintain memory, a major function of the brain. In addition to consuming a healthy diet, engaging in regular exercise, getting sufficient uninterrupted sleep and other health basics, supplementation with choline (including CDP choline), Huperzine A, phosphatidylserine, magnesium L-threonate, lithium orotate, acetyl-L-carnitine, ashwagandha, blueberry extract, Ginkgo biloba, vinpocetine and the hormone pregnenolone can help support memory. Some people find that online brain training is additionally helpful.

How can I support my short term memory?

You can challenge your short-term memory with “brain training” techniques: memory games that may help your brain process and recall certain types of information in the short term. However, it’s not entirely clear how far this support extends beyond the specific tasks you practice.

How does magnesium L-threonate support your memory?

Magnesium L-threonate is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it helps maintain connections between brain cells and supports brain cell signaling pathways. Rodent studies have found that this form of magnesium maintains synaptic plasticity and is supportive of healthy cognition.
