Nutrition can Help your Memory“What did I come in here for?”
We all have those occasional lapses of memory. Just check with your Fort Wayne friends. They’ll concur that it can be discouraging! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc encountered some recent nutritional research that may help you preserve your memory functioning better and be a normal part of your chiropractic treatment plan..


Researchers studied 56 elderly women who stated that they had some memory loss. These women took a multivitamin, mineral, herbal supplement for 16 weeks. The researchers found a heightened speed of reaction in spatial working memory.  Plus homocysteine levels dropped. (Good news! These are inflammation indicators. You don't want inflammation.) Vitamin B6 and B12 and even Vitamin E increased! (1)


A similar study was done with sedentary, older men (50 to 74 years old). They were in an 8 week study taking a multivitamin, mineral, herbal supplement. There were similar findings to the women’s: lower homocysteine levels and higher Vitamin B12 and B6 folate. The improvement in their memory was in the contextual recognition memory performance. (2) Any improvement in memory is a great thing!

So let’s talk at your next Fort Wayne chiropractic appointment. If you or a loved one finds memory to be a challenge (or even a slight frustration), let’s talk about trying a quality multivitamin, mineral, herbal supplement. The quality makes all the difference!
