Each day, for the past few months, I have been taking each day: 1 garlic capsule (pressure from the other half!); one multi vit tablet and 1 ginko biloba capsule. Not sure how I am supposed to benefit but saves arguing with the wife!!!!! Nuff sed!!
Hi, Red Devil
Looks like your wife wants you to stay healthy. Garlic for heart and cholesterol, Ginko for your noggin and Multi for "if-you-dont-know-what".
If you visit those english pubs, may I recommend "Milk Thistle" for liver... It keeps those high meat eaters in shape.
Q-10 is very expensive. Vinpocetine and Choline work just as good for memory. I take Q-10 once in a while just in case.
There are two types of chemicals that can help in memory problems.
1. That works to increase blood circulation in the brain such as: Ginko, Vinpocetine, Huperzine A, Gotu Kola, There may be others.
2. That increases the neurotransmitter: like Choline, Phosphotidyl Serine (sp?), Lecithin etc.
Using a cocktail of protein powder and lecithin mixed in fruit juice will work just as good.
For serious problems, a doctor can prescribe products such as Piracetam, Aricept and similar drugs.
