Supplement Formulated by a Neurologist


 
I just came across a supplement that’s described as a memory solution, developed by a neurologist.  It claims to prevent fuzzy thinking and forgetfulness and protect against oxidative damage.  It also claims to promote improvement in cognitive function, protect the brain, and to demonstrate antioxidant activity.
 
Sounds great, doesn’t it?
 
There are a few problems with this product that are related to nutrition.
·      There are two ingredients in the product that inhibit, and another to boost folate metabolism.  Folate is needed for neurotransmitters, like serotonin, that help with sleep, mood and to prevent fuzzy thinking.  This product gives the body a mixed message.  It stimulates and blocks the same element.  Is the result on or off?  It doesn’t make sense.
·      Another ingredient in the product can inhibit the BCMOI gene related to Vitamin A.  In my opinion, it’s not a good idea to block nutrients to eyes, skin, hair and autoimmune system plus the other 500+ things this vitamin does.  And since geneticists are finding that more than ½ of the population may already have underlying problems with this gene, it’s likely this ingredient may be a bad choice for a majority of people.
·      Medical schools don’t teach nutrition, so even a brilliant neurologist isn’t likely to be an expert in nutrition (or any other field they haven’t studied).  It’s clear, though the intentions may be good, this neurologist lacks a metabolic understanding of nutrition.
 

I don’t like seeing products like this, (there are a lot on the market).  People want products to help them feel better and they trust doctors.  But this nutritional product is unfortunately based on an incomplete understanding of nutrition.   There’s likelihood that this supplement will cause problems in unsuspecting people, especially when used over time.
