Hi Keith, sorry to read about the grief you are dealing with from family members. My husband is 74 & his memory is not the sharpest either, it's part of normal aging, not dementia. Something I will share with you, our son always looked at his dad as his hero. Dad was someone that could fix anything, build anything & was a perfectionist. He does forget things. My son says mom, I hate seeing dad this way, I always envision him being on the ball & I must remind myself dad is getting older. It's hard for family to sometimes remember parents age. Do not let family dictate this. Get a note from your dr that states you have old age, not dementia. There is a huge difference between old age & dementia!
Before taking supplements such as you described, I urge you to visit with your local pharmacist before taking anything like you mentioned. You don't want to take something that may have adverse effects. A good pharmacist may be able to guide you on a product that may help. What may work for one, may not work for someone else.
Keep in mind, our drs are not trained to learn about supplements, your pharmacist is your best source. Please stay off of Dr Google, he is rarely right. Take care.
