Neuro-degenerative disease/cognitive decline is a concern for everyone, because as we are beginning to realize, we’re ending up like our parents. The therapeutic drugs available on the market are a great failure. There is no single drug that provides any real significant benefit. Over the past decade billions of dollars have been spent on research -clinical trials without success.
A better approach is targeting multiple pathways simultaneously. Enough said on that. If you have the wherewithal this is what would work better.

Chelating heavy metals, mercury, lead, cadmium. That is performed by an MD that specializes in chelation. It requires a series of I.V. drips. You would need to have the silver fillings in your teeth removed before starting that process.
That is a lot of work. Probably no one on earth can do all that. Do the best you can. The supplementation routine is vital. Chances are there will never be a single pill solution so just get over that idea.
