Cognitive decline, chemobrain, post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment, call it what you want- it’s all about brain health. Give your brain what it needs to stay healthy. Cancer survivors who suffer from chemobrain can’t help but wonder if their cognitive decline will worsen with age. I know I do.
According to ConsumerLabs.com and the article linked and excerpted below, acetyl-l-carnitine may improve memory and cognition in older people with age-related memory problems and it may have benefit in mild-cognitive impairment and early Alzheimer’s disease.
Doctor’s Best Acetyl-L-Carnitine with Biosint 500 mg has been evaluated and approved by ConsumerLab.com for quality and dose (you must be a member to access the report). Why do I supplement with Doctor’s Best Acetyl-L-Carnitine with Biosint 500 mg”
I am a cancer survivor and cancer coach. I approach the management of my chemobrain the same way that I approach my cancer or any of the other short, long-term and late stage side effects I live with. Feed my brain, my heart, my blood, etc. what they need to stay healthy.
“One group of patients underwent therapy with acetyl-L-carnitine, 2 g/day for three months, while the other group was treated with a placebo. The statistical evaluation of the results was carried-out using non-parametric methods (Friedman-Nemenyi two-way ANOVA).
It was possible to affirm that the acetyl-L-carnitine treated patients showed statistically significant improvement in the behavioural scales, in the memory tests, in the attention barrage test and in the Verbal Fluency test. These satisfactory results confirm the therapeutic importance of acetyl-L-carnitine in the treatment of elderly patients with mental impairment, which could be related principally to acetylcholine defects.”
