In brief: Healthy diet
Simple answer is eating a healthy balanced diet and exercise (physical and mental).
If you happen to be deficient (or even borderline) in b12, thiamine, vitamin d, or vitamin e, so have a doctor check. Avoid smoking and keep alcohol to < 2 drinks/day maximum. Most any multivitamin is a decent insurance policy against dietary deficiencies. Ginkgo might help, but it thins blood like aspirin.

In brief: Many
I would first start with a good multivitamin/mineral product.
Choose one that is a truly natural, food based one. In addition, many agents help with memory: ginkgo, gotu kola, phosphatidylserine, acetyl-l-carnitine, essential fatty acids and others can be effective. Exercise is also beneficial, so get out and move it!
