Memory problems

Short-term memory, which helps us remember day-to-day tasks, is the one most likely to deteriorate with age. Forgetting things is not the symptom of a serious problem unless it is accompanied by other symptoms such as confusion and behavioural changes.

Short-term memory, which helps us remember day-to-day tasks, is the one most likely to deteriorate with age.  Forgetting things is not the symptom of a serious problem unless it is accompanied by other symptoms such as confusion and behavioural changes.

Memory is affected by a lack of sleep, stress, lack of exercise, high fever, epilepsy, severe alcohol intoxication, operation, use of some medication (ex. Sleeping pills, antidepressants…), consumption of drugs, malnutrition, anemia, physical or mental fatigue, menopause (hormonal unbalance), hypothyroidism or hyperactivity. Because of the multiple possible causes, it is important to consult a doctor for any major loss of memory or if the person forgets the use of things, have black out for big parts of the day, forget where they live or those with who they interact on a daily basis.

Causes of memory problems

Memory and concentration troubles can occur at any age: learning difficulties in the young, memory blanks due to fatigue or stress, decrease of intellectual performance in the elderly, etc.

Memory can be affected by many factors:

  • Lack of sleep 
  • Stress 
  • Lack of exercise 
  • High fever
  • Epilepsy
  • Severe alcohol intoxication
  • Surgery
  • Use of some medication such as sleeping pills and antidepressants 
  • Drug use 
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Anemia
  • Physical or mental fatigue
  • Menopause (hormonal unbalance)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hyperactivity 

Because of the many possible causes, it is important to consult a doctor for any major loss of memory, especially if the person forgets the purpose of things, big parts of the day, where they live, or people they interact with on a regular basis.

Diet and memory problems

Our brain has specific nutritional needs.

Our brain needs essential fatty acids.   Excellent sources are:  raw nuts and seeds (non-roasted), cold pressed olive oils or VegOmega-3 capsules.  The oils in VegOmega-3 are extracted from plants that are free of heavy metal contaminants. Oils that un dergo a decontamination process are harder to digest.  Hence VegOmega-3 is easier to digest and assimilate than fish oils, and is effective even in small doses.
Lecithin plays an important role in the transmission of nervous impulses involved in memory.  Foods rich in lecithin are: liquid egg yolk, soya, raw wheat germ, nuts and seeds.
Vitamins B contribute to proper brain function.  B6 is particularly important for remembering dreams.  Brewer’s y east, raw wheat germ, eggs, cabbage and green vegetables are good sources of vitamins B.

Supplements and memory problems

The ideal supplement to support memory is Ginkgoforce or Ginkgo Extra from A.Vogel.  Unlike most Ginkgo extract on the market, those products are holistic extracts. They increase microcirculation (blood flow through the smallest blood vessels) in the brain, revitalizing the cerebral cortex thus preventing memory loss and improving mental alertness.  If intellectual faculties are starting to show signs of fatigue, Ginkgo can be used to slow down the deterioration process and help maintain a normal quality of life for many years. For those suffering from a more serious problem, Ginkgo can help improve both mood and alertness.  In Germany, ginkgo is the supplement most recommended for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.  Ginkgo can help memory even if it already functions properly, which can be very helpful when studying for exams.

Bio-Strath contains 61 nutritional elements that support brain health and increase energy levels. Scientific studies clearly show that Bio-Strath improves concentration and memory in most situations.
