Unsaturated fats, or the “good” fats, can be great for our brains. Getting enough of these fats keeps the brain working well and have been proven to help improve memory and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
What should you eat? The general consensus is that a Mediterranean diet is the best for improving memory. Salmon, olive oil, and nuts all contain unsaturated fats that can help improve memory.
