3.  Fatty Fish

Fatty fish that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as tuna, mackerel, and wild salmon, will not only keep your heart healthy, but they also give your brain a real boost of power. A study done with mice in 2014 showed that when these mice were given omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplements, they not only had improved cognitive function as they aged, but they also had aversive response retention, improved object recognition memory and better spatial and localized memory as well.

If you aren’t a fan of fish, or if you are concerned about eating mercury contaminated fish, consider taking fish oil or krill oil supplements.
