Memory in a pill
Everybody wants the "miracle" fix. Whether it's six-pack abs while sitting on the couch, to weight loss while you sleep, to great libido in a little blue pill.
With memory, it's no different. People want one pill that will make you remember everything in a breeze. While that's unlikely, Chester Santos, the 7-time U.S. Memory finalist and 2008 Champion, believes that a healthy mind when combined with proper memory techniques can definitely make an improvement. The great news is that most of what you need can be found at your locally grocery store. No informercial "power packs" necessary.
"I am a firm believer that a healthy body equals a healthy mind," Chester said. "There are many nutrients proven to have an impact on our memory, and if your diet is deficient in them, I highly recomment that you take supplements."
The pills that Chester takes are the Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) and B-vitamins. He believes that fatty acids are essential to proper brain function and the B-vitamins are important for mental energy and concentration.
