Memory is a fundamental aspect when carrying out any type of research, including the thesis, because we use it to remember authors, reference documents, theories, places, tasks to perform and a long list of other things.
Reason why maintaining a good memory will help you to reach a good pace of progress during the process, and not lose opportunities by “forgetting” something important.
There are many techniques used to achieve it, however, you should know that the daily diet is also a determining factor.
Dr. Danielle Vautrin (2008) in her book “The Perfect Memory” states that “memory is chemical or rather biochemical, which means that all memory supports leave our diet” .
Therefore, today we bring you a list of foods that you should include in your snacks, ounces or snacks of the day to improve your ability to memorize.
Cranberries facilitate memory and learning, since their inclusion in our diet can cause brain cells to multiply within the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory.
In addition, eating them can significantly improve concentration and memory for up to five hours, which greatly helps the brain to perform prolonged mental tasks, such as doing the thesis, “it is believed that antioxidants in the Blueberries stimulate the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain, keeping the mind active “.
The consumption of nuts, directly as dry fruit, or incorporated into some preparation, is related to a better working memory, which allows the short-term storage of information, according to a study by Emilio Ros, head of the Lipid Unit of the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona (Zudaire, 2012).
In addition, according to a study conducted by the University of California and published by El Heraldo de México, “eating nuts improves performance in tests related to memory, concentration and speed of information processing, excluding age. , sex and race. “
As Joey Bauer states: “Nuts may seem like a miniature version of the human brain for a reason.”
Plums are another food that you can include in your daily snacks, since it contains, among others:
Vitamin C: that can improve memory as well as congnitive functions.
Vitamins A and E: it has been shown that when the rate of vitamin E in the blood is low, failures in memory occur; In addition, supplements of vitamins A and E help to have a better quality memory.
Vitamin B6: “a German study with men of good health, has shown that a vitamin B6 supplement slightly improves your long-term memory”.
A good cup of coffee or a delicious coffee shake, how much we like it! For good news, it has been shown that caffeine helps improve focus and memory temporarily.

But remember, it is not recommended to take it at night, since it can affect our sleep.
Delicious! Most of us love chocolate, and now more to learn that it can be our ally to improve memory.
According to a study in the journal Nature Neuroscience, flavonoids, one of the components of cocoa, improve the ability to remember and boost memory.
And this occurs because when consumed, “a very specific area of the brain, called dentate gyrus, which is part of the hippocampus, key area for memory and learning, and one of the few regions of the adult brain where it takes place the formation of new memories, experiences a greater vascularization, that is, receives greater blood supply and therefore more nutrients, and also registers more metabolic activity, which means a greater predisposition to the memorization process “.
But, it is important to say that the consumption of this, must be done in moderation.
So we invite you to check the effectiveness of these foods to improve memory, including them in your snacks of the day.
