In this article, a group of experts give you their best tips to improve memory. We’d love to hear from you about the things you do to improve your memory, so comment and share at the bottom of the article.

“How to protect ourselves against neurodegeneration
Two of the most potent memory enhancers that are FDA approved for sale as supplements are Bacopa Monnieri and Alpha-GPC.
Several studies have suggested that Bacopa Monnieri extracts may have protective effects against neurodegeneration and preliminary clinical studies (including double-blind placebo-backed trials on healthy humans) suggest improvement of cognitive function, notably memory, in humans.
Alpha-GPC is a high quality source of choline, a chemical precursor or “building block” needed to produce acetylcholine, and research suggests that memory, intelligence, and mood are mediated at least in part by acetylcholine metabolism in the brain.
For both compounds, it’s important to intake a high quality source to ensure efficacy as well as safety. High quality, laboratory-verified Bacopa and Alpha-GPC are found in the RISE stack by Nootrobox.”

“The future of brain supplements looks optimistic
While some drugs like Adderall or Modafinil offer the hope for improved memory and expanded intelligence to some today, the real beacon for those interested in expanding their brain power comes from the not-to-distant future.
Advances in neuroscience, including the work done by researchers to simulate our brains in silico, could unlock wholly new ways for us to think, learn, work and communicate.
The research being done today could unlock new brain supplements, technologies and more that will help us achieve unheard of heights.”

“Supplements Can Help Recover From Brain Injury
Because I had a brain injury, living a brain healthy lifestyle and taking a brain supplement is a top priority for me.
It’s important that a supplement provide scientifically proven benefits without a bunch of harmful chemicals.
I like EHT which has all the regular stuff: Huperzine A, Alpha Lipoic acid, vitamin D and Bs, folate, magnesium, selenium, but it also includes the ingredient EHT. EHT is a proprietary extract consisting of naturally occurring bio-active molecules isolated from coffee which protect and strengthen neuronal synapses – so important for our ageing brains.
This stuff is the real deal.”

“Ginseng and Ginkgo are an excellent combo for memory
It might be a bit conservative but I like a really fine combination in ratio 2:1 of Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba. In research from the University of Northumbria Ginseng has been shown to improve memory but in a trade-off with response speed and accuracy.
This is probably due to its inhibitory effects on the CNS. Contrary to what the common knowledge about Ginkgo Biloba says it doesn’t really benefit memory, but boost response time.
In combination with Ginkgo it was shown that the trade-off for Ginseng in response accuracy could be compensated and even become faster! In my daily life I love this combination. I feel more clarity, peace of mind, yet I have the ability to sharply focus when asked also on memories.
I can zoom in on memories and creatively associate them. Without this combination or without NZT.2 my memory works sluggish unfortunately.”
