Memory loss may be part and parcel of getting older. However, there are a number of steps you can take to slow down the process and keep your mind healthy.
A group of researchers in the US recently discovered that blueberry juice can help to improve recall and prevent memory loss.
The study found that some pensioners scored up to 40 per cent higher in word-association tests after 12 weeks of drinking the juice daily.
Scientists are hailing the discovery as significant and are calling for more research to be done in the area.
As well as sipping blueberry juice, there are a number of other ways in which you can boost your memory.
Getting enough sleep is vital, as disorders such as insomnia can leave your brain unable to function properly throughout the day.
Doing crosswords and number puzzles can also help to keep your mind active and your memory functioning.
