Memory Increasing When You Get Older

I know as I get older I tend to have things slip my mind. I mean I could lay something down turn around and forget where I have placed the item. Very frustrating since my patience has also worn down as I have gotten older. I was surfing the internet and I came across an article on this problem at nytimes.com/pages/health/nutrition/ .
The article talks about use of supplements which contain ingredients such as alpha lipoic acid, ginkgo biloba, and huperzine A which are an antioxidant and a purported brain stimulant to increase levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain. Is this to hold fact? Case studies show this not to be evident.
It further states that doing brain training games may stimulate your mind but yet they are not proven to be successful in enhancing your memory either.
It goes on to suggest that doing things the old school way may strengthen your memory such as dialing a phone number instead of using the speed dial, doing crossword puzzles for fun, and writing down reminders to yourself on post it’s and placing them on your refrigerator.
All the above are good harmless suggestions which I wouldn’t mind giving them a try. Ricardo GuimarĂ£es BMG uses quite a few of them already. Try them for yourself and see if your memory improves.
