"Brain memory," what is it? The simple answer is the ability to recall... to recognize a person or remember the theme of a book... to jump on a bike and ride away even if it has been years since you rode one... the ability to remember where you put that item, that you need right now... to be able to recognize the voice on the phone of a friend that you haven't spoken to in years, even before your friend identifies himself.

Similar with all these examples is that they all required learning. After a period of time, then, you will being able to recall either completely or partially the events of your past experience.

Basically, a memory is the learning of something, which creates neuron production; then later, you are able to retrieve those particular neurons either completely or partially to recreate that event or experience in your mind.

Of course, the more times that you repeat something, the more times those particular neurons fire, making the experience much easier to recall.

Several different types of memory will be discussed in further pages. For right now, let's take a look at short-term memory and long-term memory.


This memory stays with us only as long as we need it. As example is an appointment that we only need to meet one time.

Short-term memory is a working memory that relies on an action plan. You use that action plan in conjunction with the summoning of information from the "storage area" of your brain. You combine these two to perform the action necessary.

For example, you have an appointment at 3 p.m. Your short-term memory remembers the appointment while your brain decides on the plan to get into the car and drive to the location of the appointment. The memory also determines how long the drive will take based on the recall of past experiences of driving that distance, then arriving at a final decision and course of action to take.


Long-term memory, in contrast, can be recalled years or even decades later. The address of your childhood home may be such a memory. In between these memory extremes, we have many medium-term memories, which may last months or years and finally fade away.

Many factors determine whether an experience or item of knowledge is destined to be a short-term brain memory or a long-term brain memory. These include their emotional content, novelty, and the amount of effort that we make to practice recalling them.

To support and maintain brain memory function specifically toward the goal of short-term memory and long-term memory retention, there is no better product than a quality Omega 3.

I highly recommend Vital Choice Wild Salmon Fish Oil for your brain memory support. I will not recommend a product unless I use it myself with excellent results.

Of course there are other choices, but please read the report below by clicking the Omega 3 link and decide for yourself.
