We’ve all had one of those days where it feels like our heads just aren’t screwed on straight. It could be just because we’re having an off day—or it could be because our diet is out of whack. By that, we mean that you might not be eating enough memory-boosting foods.

There are certain foods that are scientifically linked to better brain health and a stronger memory. “Foods that improve cognitive function include omega-3 fatty acids, medium-chain triglycerides (often found in coconut oil and palm oils), and vitamin D,” says Shena Jaramillo, MS, RD, registered dietitian and founder of Peace & Nutrition. Other nutrients, such as antioxidants and certain minerals, have also been linked to a healthier mind.

On top of making sure your diet is rich in these brain-boosting foods, you can also strengthen and protect your mind by following a balanced diet with sustainable eating habits: “Other things that will prevent age-related memory loss can include ensuring to eat regular balanced meals/snacks throughout the day. This will help to keep blood sugars stable throughout the day and prevent lows in blood sugars. Repeated incidences of low blood sugar can be associated with memory loss,” adds Jaramillo.
