Everything mentioned here is good. It's said that what is good for the heart is good for the brain, so the right diet, lots of aerobic exercise and a solid social life, plus active mental life are all good for you. Check with a doctor before taking on an extreme diet change or a lot of exercise. Good nutrition is fundamental, so there is something to be said for quality supplements taken with common sense, if you don't have a perfect diet. Again, a talk with an up to date physician is a good idea.

According to the behavioral neurologist my husband sees, general good health is important to normal brain functioning. Get enough exercise, get enough sleep, and maintain a healthy diet.

Exercising your brain in any way can help build more connections in the complicated interwoven brain pathways. The more pathways, the more cushion your brain has in times of distress or when parts of it are under attack from disease.

If you are thinking of persons with dementia, yes there are drugs that can help reduce the symptom of memory loss. This needs to be directed by a doctor who knows the patient's history, all current drugs and supplements, the type of dementia, and the stage it is in. To my knowledge, there is no evidence that such pills are useful for people with healthy minds.

Wouldn't it be great, though, if we could pop a pill or two and actually remember the name of that familar-person-I-can't-quite-place when we run into them in the grocery store? If you find one, share!
