Human memory – is a complex thought process, which is influenced by many diverse factors – chronic fatigue, over-voltage, constant stress and lack of sleep. Of course, age is also not added mental health of a person. Neural connections weaken, the intensity is reduced, and the person begins to experience problems with short-term memory, this is a function of the psyche that is responsible for short storage of any information in the human brain. If you will not use this information for more than one day, it is “automatically” is deleted. Short-term memory with age brings even the most healthy people not suffering from any mental illness.
Train “mental charge”: Violations of short-term memory is most often associated with scattering. However, the malfunction is not as harmless as they may seem at the beginning. Experiencing difficulty remembering an event, a person reduces the volume of long-term memory, which negatively affects the work of the mind and the brain.

In addition, the brain requires a large amount of iodine for a normal life. Iodine deficiency leads to loosening of the nervous system, which triggers memory impairment. Iodine rich radish, seaweed, rhubarb, and spinach. Improvement of thought processes also contributes to chocolate. The cocoa beans contain a lot of magnesium, which is needed for the normal operation of the short-term memory. However, to preserve the memory need only eat dark chocolate.
