Memory Check

Some of us have a gradual decline in memory and don't even realize it. This questionnaire will help you to determine where you stand on the memory scale. Give yourself one point for each "yes" answer.

  • Is your memory deteriorating?
  • Do you find it hard to concentrate and often get confused?
  • Do you sometimes forget the name of someone you know quite well?
  • Do you often find you can remember things from the past but forget what you did yesterday?
  • Do you ever forget what day of the week it is?
  • Do you ever go looking for something and forget what you are looking for?
  • Do your friends and family think you're more forgetful than you used to be?
  • Do you find it hard to add numbers without writing them down?
  • Do you often experience mental tiredness?
  • Do you find it hard to concentrate for more than one hour?
  • Do you often misplace your keys?
  • Do you frequently repeat yourself?
  • Do you sometimes forget the point you're trying to make?
  • Does it take you longer to learn things than it used to?
Scoring

1-5: You don't have a major problem with your memory – but you'll find that supplementing with natural mind and memory boosters will sharpen your memory even more.

6-10: Your memory definitely needs a boost – you are starting to suffer from brain drain. Follow all the diet and supplement recommendations and check your stress levels.

11-14: You are experiencing significant memory decline and need to do something about it. As well as following the diet and supplement recommendations, see a nutritionist who can identify other causes of memory decline, such as a stress hormone imbalance, especially if you also scored high on the stress questionnaire.
