The Value of Supporting brain health

A year and a half ago, I was sitting in a room with my mother and she didn’t know who I was. We were having a polite conversation, but she didn’t realize that she was talking to her own son. In that moment, I realized that every memory we’d shared together was gone. Everything we had done – all of the memories, happiness, angst and tears – gone. Her lifelong journey, the person who made me who I am, had forgotten me. 


As a result of my mother’s diagnosis, I began looking at the existing research on Alzheimer’s Disease and how to slow down the decline and minimize its effects. I was determined to find anything to offer my mother even the smallest modicum of relief. In my search for answers Memory Health was brought to my attention by a friend and colleague, and I began studying the science supporting it.


The Scientific research behind Memory Health is sound – so much so that it was published in the scientific Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and described as a “breakthrough for Alzheimer’s research.” It was scientifically tested in clinical trials on brains in a variety of health conditions – young, old, diseased and healthy – and through these trials it was shown to be of benefit to everyone who took it. Both diseased and healthy brains showed improvement in cognitive function, memory, focus, and emotion management with consistent daily use.


Eventually I believed so strongly in the science that I made it my mission to get Memory Health into the hands of as many people as possible, and  I bought part of the company.


What I learned through this journey is that while it’s never too early to start focusing on your brain health, it can be too late. Unfortunately for my mother, it was too late. She passed away in June, 2019. Had this brain health supplement been available three or four years earlier, things may have worked out much differently for her and for our family. Today, my entire family takes Memory Health.


I have a six-year-old daughter who is a Type 1 Diabetic and currently taking Memory Health. Why? Because we know that the carotenoids in Memory Health nourish both the eyes and the brain. She’s at risk of Diabetic retinopathy so we’re being proactive in our approach to her future health.


My eleven-year-old son is an athlete. He plays catcher in baseball and quarterback in football. As a result of playing these positions, he’s at some risk of head trauma and concussion during games. I believe by having my son take Memory Health we are actively supporting and fortifying his brain – before and after any potential brain injury.


My wife has suffered two concussions over the last several years and she’s seen vast improvement in her brain fog symptoms that came with her head injuries. She says the fog has lifted and clarity is coming back.


I take Memory Health and I personally feel more alert and attuned on a daily basis. I know, from my own personal experience, that taking Memory Health can positively affect one’s mood.


If I can help people avoid incredibly painful moments like my own experience with my mother, I’m committed to doing so. Our family was forced to watch her decline, slowing losing all of our family memories. It was heart-wrenching. If I can help people supplement their brain health for both today’s and tomorrow’s memories, it’s a crusade for me. Babies to boomers, everyone can benefit from brain health. As I mentioned, it’s never too early to start.


From my family to yours,


Edward
