Supporting the Brain from Neurological Disorders to Nootropics
Cognitive Decline, Alzheimer's disease & related disorders (ADRD) affect one’s ability to function socially, personally, and professionally. Since 2000, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have increased by eighty nine percent. It is important to recognize that ADRD begin long before symptoms start just like many other conditions. There is evidence that simple prevention strategies can reduce the risk of ADRD by as much as fifty percent. This presentation combines the pathophysiology, laboratory assessment, risk factors, prevention strategies, dietary recommendations and nutraceuticals to support neurological disorders as well as nootropics to enhance cognitive fun memory, mental function, and prevent age-related memory decline.
