There’s no doubt that what we eat has a big impact on our health. There are also certain foods that could benefit your brain. From a type of nuts to leafy green vegetables, there are plenty of snacks and foods that can serve as a memory booster.
Dr Amir has shared one snack which was his mum’s “top tip” for getting through revision sessions.
He said: “When I was revising for exams which was pretty much all of my life, she used to bring me plates full of almonds.
“And I thought that was just an old wives’ tale, obviously, I didn’t dare argue with her, I just ate them.
“But actually, evidence shows that eating almonds regularly is really good for your brain.
“So mama Khan was right, I mean she’s always right.”
Considered to be a “brain food”, almonds are able to improve cognitive function and prolong memory.
Packed with vitamin E, the little snack is thought to improve your memory. However, more research might be needed to draw a firm conclusion.
A study, published in the journal The Brain Research Bulletin, explains that vitamin E is an important antioxidant able to guard your cells from damage linked to oxidative stress.
