My Mum has worsening memory problems and although she is nearly 91 and taken supplements for over 50 years her doctor just puts 'Memory Problems' on her notes and dismisses her, just checking her bp occasionally. I am trying different supplements to help with her memory and wonder if anyone has had any success with anything. Mum otherwise is fit and healthy but she is now asking me the same question over and over and getting confused. I am giving her B12 methylcobalamin 1000 sublingual but after reading on the forum I will increase to 5000. I am also giving her Gingko Biloba 6000mg, probiotics, Vinpocetie, Ashwagandha, Magnesium Oratate and just started yesterday on curcumin and piperine 10000. She also takes a multi vitamin for 70+ years and vitamins B-100 from H&B. I do a superfood smoothie for her everyday and she takes 3000 Vit D sublingually. She lives on her own and I try and take her out every other day and telephone her with a 30 minute conversation every day. My husband left me a few years ago, my Dad died a few years ago leaving Mum alone and I look after two children. I haven't the time to look after her 35 hours a week so I don't get carer's allowance and the supplements are expensive but its cheaper than being in a home. I don't get job seeker's allowance as I don't have time to look for a job. What a life. But if anyone has any ideas or seen improvements using a supplement your input would be appreciated. x
