- Fish, such as anchovies and carp, herring, salmon, and sardines are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

Worried about memory loss ready for some memory gain, dementia is a general term for a group of conditions characterized by memory loss, limited social skills, struggles with problem solving and other impaired thinking abilities that interfere with daily life.
A new study shows that eating foods high in omega threes are crucial to lowering your risk of developing dementia. Some good sources of omega-3 fatty acids are actually found in fish.
I recommend adding two portions of 140 grams of fish into your diet, which include anchovies and carp, herring, salmon, and sardines. But if you can’t stomach the fishiness, I recommend any high quality omega three fatty acid to get those omega threes to start helping with your memory.
