Everyone wants to be mentally sharp when they get older.  Diet and exercise are very important to supporting our brain health especially as we age.

A new study looked at the benefits of a supplement called Citicoline on elderly subjects with self reported memory problems.  They were given either Citicoline or placebo for 9 months.

The subjects were evaluated before and after the study.  The Citicoline group saw improvement in cognitive scores while the control group did not.
