You bump into someone you know but you can't remember his or her name. All these things happen to a lot of people but that doesn't take away the scare factor. You may have thought that you're showing signs of Alzheimer's. This isn't likely, however. Instead of freaking out, do something to boost your memory, like eating more of the following memory boosting superfoods.

Seeds, sunflower seeds in particular are a great memory "super food." What makes sunflower seeds a super food? The answer is in their high vitamin E concentration. Look at it this way: a single ounce of dry roasted sunflower seeds will give you 30% of your daily vitamin E requirement. Vitamin E is really important to your overall health. Eating seeds, especially sunflower seeds is easy enough to do. Sunflower seeds can be eaten plainly or added to other foods like salads.

Peanuts are also excellent sources of vitamin E and the good fats. Our brain needs vitamin E in order for it to function properly and be healthy. And did you know that peanuts are an excellent protein source? A diet that contains a lot of healthy fats but low in saturated and trans fats is much better for your brain. Peanuts and peanut butter are easy enough to incorporate into your diet. For one, before you start every meal, try eating a handful of peanuts. For lunch, have a peanut butter sandwich. You can also increase the protein content of any meal by adding peanut butter to them. You'll find many recipes where you can either add peanut butter or substitute it for another ingredient.

Make sure you get enough lean red meat in your diet. You can source your iron from lean beef. Of course, you wouldn't want to eat lean beef in all your meals. Eating it once in a while can help with your brain function. There are a lot of studies that have been done that show a link between iron deficiency and memory loss. And it isn't just memory loss that results from iron deficiency. If you're low in iron, you're likely to have anemia and other disorders.

You can improve your memory; there's no doubt about that. Regularly do all kinds of puzzles. Try reading more books. You can reduce the amount of time you spend watching television and playing on the Internet.

And by eating the right foods, your memory will benefit a great deal. It might seem silly but there genuinely are some memory "super foods" that can help you improve or even save your memory.
