I posted this in another thread and thought I would let everyone know this information. I do take folic acid daily and my memory is decent, especially for my age and having fibro. I read a while back that they are starting to use folic acid on Alzheimer's patients.

You might try taking folic acid. It's a form of vitamin B. It seems to help with memory...even cognitive memory...and also depression. I take it every day. Here is a link to. The National Institutes of Health about it. It's a short link.

Here are the summary points of the link.

Summary points
Folate deficiency is associated with depression and dementia

In elderly people it may be related to ageing, poor diet, malabsorption, drugs, or increased demand or be unexplained

Folic acid has particular effects on mood and cognitive and social function

Impaired folate metabolism may result in a pattern of cognitive dysfunction that resembles ageing.
