5 Foods and Vitamins to Sharpen Your Memory and Prevent Alzheimer's Disease

(RealAge.com) Fond of your memory? Treasure your brain? Don't want to lose them to Alzheimer's? If you didn't hear this the first 99 times, we hope the hundredth time will do it. Here's how to nurture your mind and keep those memories:
1.    Take 900 milligrams of DHA omega-3s a day…
2.    Eat plenty of foods rich in DHA…
3.    Eat oodles of fruits and vegetables…
4.    Take 1,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D3 a day; 1,200 IU after age 60…
5.    Season foods with turmeric…
While you're eating more of those memory-boosting foods, be sure to avoid unhealthy ones that take a toll on your brain. Items with saturated and trans fats, or added sugars or syrups are criminals. They steal your memories, among other bad things.
