Supplements worth trying for memory loss or brain fog
There’s a range of herbal remedies and supplements recommended for improving memory. You could try:
- Omega-3 fish oil supplements if you’re struggling to get enough of them in your diet.
- Ginseng, commonly called Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng), Korean red ginseng, or American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) may be an effective memory booster, protecting brain cells from free radical damage.
- Ginkgo biloba may aid memory loss.
- B-complex vitamin supplements may help if you are deficient.
The 2015 NICE guidelines emphasise that the different strengths of over-the-counter brands and preparations can impact on the effectiveness of prescription drugs. If you have any underlying health issues, check with your doctor.
