(NaturalNews) In a BBC article titled, "Herbal Remedies Boost Brain Power," a scientist stated that, "A combination of two ancient herbal remedies can dramatically boost brain power and may have many applications in medicine." Those two herbs are ginkgo biloba and ginseng.

One study revealed that a combination of ginseng and ginkgo biloba was the most effective formula for increasing brain power. A preparation of 60% ginseng and 40% ginkgo was the most effective formula when it came to improving the memory of the study volunteers.

According to Dr Scholey, with the University of Northumbria, "Subjects were able to sustain their concentration for longer. Normally, when people have to concentrate over an extended period of time, their reaction time begins to slow - ginkgo seemed to stop that slowing and one dose actually [sped] them up."

There are few things more precious than memory. Whether it is a memory of that first kiss or recollections of your wedding day, memories are very important. As we age, memories tend to fade and sometimes, memory loss occurs much faster than expected. The ability to remember new information (in the short term and in the long term) is also impaired. Whether the cause is Alzheimer's disease or aging, improving memory is easier than some may expect.

Natural Ways for Improving Memory:

Olive Oil - Olive oil is one of the best foods for improving memory. It is high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and is also polyunsaturated. With its wide array of benefits, olive oil should be used daily. The suggested dose is 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil mixed with lemon juice (extracted from 1/2 lemon.) The mixture should be taken daily, just before sleeping.

Folate and B Vitamins - To improve memory, consume plenty of foods loaded with B vitamins. Patients with a deficiency in B vitamins and folate demonstrated forgetfulness, memory loss, confusion, dementia and depression.

Honey - Studies show that consuming raw honey can improve memory. It also offers many other health benefits. Raw honey calms nerves and relieves anxiety, thereby promoting relaxation and rest. One to two teaspoons per day is recommended.

Rosemary - Rosemary acts as a decongestant and astringent. It is good for digestion and circulation problems, and it relaxes the stomach. Rosemary isn't just an excellent herb for cooking; it can also relieve headaches and menstrual cramps, and it regulates blood pressure. (See Recipe below)

Ginger - Ginger has long been used as a remedy for stomach distress, as it relieves inflammation, nausea, vomiting and pain, and it increases circulation. Ginger can also cleanse the colon. Ginger also remedies hot flashes, morning sickness and motion sickness. 1 cup per day of ginger tea is recommended.

Recipes to Enhance Memory:

Memory Zest Blend

1 part ginkgo
1 part gotu kola and peppermint leaves
1 part red clover tops
1 part rosemary leaves
1 part ginger root
Honey

Bring a cup of water (or an entire tea pot) to a boil and add the herbs. Allow the tea to steep for at least ten minutes, strain and drink. Honey can be added after the tea is strained. According to HerbalSolutions.com, this is "a mentally refreshing beverage [that will] give you feelings of clarity and precision."

Yogurt and Rosemary Drink

1 cup of raw yogurt
1 twig of rosemary or 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary
2 figs
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Place the ingredients in a jar and seal overnight. In the morning, place the mixture in a blender and blend until smooth. Drink this daily to feel refreshed.
