Eating Eggs, Chicken May Boost Memory

Thursday, 01 December 2011 07:39 AM

A new long-term study announced last week found that eggs and chicken may sharpen your memory.

Senior researcher Rhoda Au and her team from Boston University School of Medicine performed the long-term health study on 1,400 adults, spanning 10 years. Those participants who ate diets packed with plenty of choline performed better in memory tests and were less likely to acquire brain changes associated with dementia than those who consumed less choline in their diets.

Other foods high in choline include legumes (such as soy and kidney beans), saltwater fish, liver, and milk, according to Australian news website ninemsn.

However, Au noted that "no one nutrient is a magic bullet against demetia," according to The Huffington Post UK.

Other ways to boost your brain power? Some studies have shown that eating fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids could help slow the typical cognitive decline that comes with age. In addition, according to a 2010 study, tea drinkers did better on tests of memory and information processing than non-tea drinkers did.
