What a wonderful article! I have shared it with our family and friends. I think it will help them understand what we experienced during HABIT and why it has been so important to us.

I totally agree! We live quite a distance from any of the current HABIT locations & although we enjoyed our trip to Phoenix, it would be wonderful if HABIT can be expanded to other regions of the country. It is such a program of hope.

Thu, Feb 28 11:29am · Getting Tough on False Claims About Supplements in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Sadly all the research on anti-amyloid and anti-tau drugs has been totally unsuccessful. So although I agree we need to be cautious about trusting company claims of efficacy for supplements, it is no wonder that those affected are giving supplements a try. I hold more hope in the research of non-traditional treatments. A recent study funded by NIH and conducted at UCLA researched over 400 plant extracts looking for those with neuro-protective properties. One extract showed promise and will move to animal trials. We need to advocate for more research $$.

Curious about the CoQ-10. Our pharmacist recommended that, too. Do you really think it helps?

Wed, Feb 20 5:36pm · Video Q&A about Statins in Heart & Blood Health

My husband has been on statins for 14 years. He was diagnosed with MCI about a year ago. I am concerned about some of the recent research suggesting that statins negatively impact cognition. I hope the speakers can address this tomorrow.
