Magnesium, folic acid, calcium: Nutritional supplements are literally on everybody. They even advertise mental health supplements – but most are useless.

Who wants to keep the brain has some options: crossword puzzles, sudoku and newspaper reading, for example, require gray cells and need to be the perfect brain training. Even those who learn a new language or instrument promote their head and memory. But you have to invest a little time and leisure. Those who are afraid of the ideas of dietary supplements against forgetfulness and for more mental capacity on fertile soil. But what are the good capsules and drops that are so aggressively advertised on television and in magazines?

Billions of Nutrition Supplements: Most of the products are useless

Believing advertising messages, some products not only can prevent mental decline, but even reduce forgetfulness. The Global Brain Health Council (GCBH) has now reviewed various products designed to promote brain activity – with devastating results! For example, researchers at GCBH have concluded that brain replacement is not a way to improve or maintain brain function for most people, says portal.

Speaking is a real waste of money: the products are mostly not worth the plastic in which they are fulfilled. With one exception: Vitamin B12If a doctor is diagnosed with vitamin B12 deficiency by blood test – which, according to a medical journal, is commonly used in elderly people, vegetarians and pregnant women – vitamin B12 supplements can stimulate brain health.

May your brain respond: use this method better

However, those who are healthy should stick their fingers apart from nutritional supplements designed to improve cognitive function. People with existing conditions should be very careful with these products and take them only in agreement with their doctor, such as patients who take heart medicines, steroids, or blood thinners. Here are possible interactions and can have fatal consequencesIncreased vitamin K intake, for example, reduces the effect of Coumadin Blood Thinner and can thus promote the development of thrombosis.

"Nutritional supplements seem to be a huge waste of money," says Sarah Lenz Lock, Executive Director of GCBH, summing up the results of the research. Money should be better invested in a healthy diet that has been proven to promote brain healthFor example, American scientists have developed the so-called MIND diet, which promotes gray cells and prevents dementia.
