London: Veteran actress Judi Dench takes pills, which help her remember scripts.

The 78-year-old actress admits her memory isn`t as sharp as it used to be, so she relies on a supplement recommended to her by a university professor in order to help boost her recall skills, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I don`t know how I retain it. I take that wonderful thing called `Eye Q` It helps me. It`s wonderful and I`ve taken it ever since. It is of course more difficult to remember, to retain something, but it`s really a question of retaining the story," said Dench.

Eye Q is an over-the-counter fish oil supplement which contains high doses of Omega 3 and Omega 6.

Last year, the "Skyfall" actress revealed she relied on her daughter Finty to read scripts to her because she is suffering from macular degeneration, an age-related condition which affects the retinas and can no longer see clearly.

"I can`t read scripts anymore because of the trouble with my eyes. And so somebody comes in and reads them to me, like telling me a story. It`s usually my daughter or my agent or a friend and actually, I like that, because I sit there and imagine the story in my mind," she said.
