“Why you shouldn’t bother with memory or brain health supplements,” by Consumer Reports in The Washington Post
“The signs of memory loss can be bewildering and scary: misplaced keys, a forgotten street name, that task you suddenly can’t remember. It’s no wonder that, according to the Nutrition Business Journal, sales of supplements touted as memory boosters nearly doubled between 2006 and 2015. But according to a review of studies published in December, there’s virtually no good evidence that such products can prevent or delay memory lapses, mild cognitive impairment or dementia in older adults. In fact, says Pieter Cohen, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, some may do more harm than good.”
