Let’s face it, without Facebook, none of us would know when our friends’ birthdays are. Heck, without our iPhone or iMac, we wouldn’t know what day it is.

The good news is that you don’t have to be a forgetful Franny. Research shows good nutrition and lifestyle can have a major impact on memory. There’s also a revolutionary ingredient called MemophenolTM, which is a patent-pending formula containing French grape and blueberry extracts, rich in essential polyphenols for cognitive function – clinically proven to improve both short- and long-term memory. (Read on.)

That said, here’s our checklist of 4 evidence-based ways to improve your memory naturally:


Sleep is super-important in memory consolidation, a process in which short-term memories are strengthened and transformed into long-lasting memories.

Research shows that if you are sleep deprived, you could be negatively impacting your memory.

For example, one study looked at the effects of sleep in 40 children between the ages of 10 and 14.

One group of children was trained for memory tests in the evening, then tested the following morning after a night’s sleep. The other group was trained and tested on the same day, with no sleep between training and testing.

The group that slept between training and testing performed 20% better on the memory tests.

Another study found that nurses working night shift made more mathematical errors and that 68% of this group scored lower on memory tests compared to nurses working the day shift.

To keep your memory and overall health in good shape, try to get between seven and nine hours of sleep a night.


Meditation has been linked to so many health benefits, from reducing stress and pain, lowering blood pressure, and even improving memory by increasing grey matter in the brain. Grey matter contains neuron cell bodies and declines as we age, which negatively impacts memory and cognition.

Research suggests that meditation and relaxation techniques may help improve short-term memory in people of all ages, from 20-year-olds to the elderly.

For example, one study demonstrated that Taiwanese college students who engaged in meditation practices like mindfulness had significantly better spatial working memory than students who didn’t.


In addition to being important for overall physical health, exercise has also shown to benefit the brain and improve memory in people of all ages.

For example, a study of 144 people aged 19 to 93 revealed that just 15 minutes of moderate exercise on a stationary bike improved cognitive performance, including memory.

Other studies have shown that exercise may increase the secretion of neuro-protective proteins and enhance the growth and development of neurons, leading to improved brain health.


Consider taking Memrise, another first-to-market product by Releaf Pharma, which has proven to promote learning and concentration, support brain function in active adults and reduce age-related cognitive decline by delaying ageing.

Memrise contains MemophenolTM, a key ingredient that has been recognised for innovation and effectiveness in pharmaceuticals – receiving international kudos as a Winner at the 2017 Nutra Ingredients Awards. MemophenolTM’s effectiveness has been proven by several studies, including mechanistic, behavioural and clinical tests. It has been demonstrated that MemophenolTM has an innovative impact on the brain, through neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity. The clinical tests also confirmed MemophenolTM‘s effect on both short- and long-term memory.

And the big news? In cognitive age scores tested after trial, Memrise has been proven to rejuvenate long-term memory by 10 years. Plus…Memrise is a NAPPI-coded product. This means that if your doctor prescribes it, you may submit a claim and it could be covered by your medical insurance plan.
