I seem to have rather poor "cognitive abilities" -- or whatever the correct terminology would be.  Thought process seems to be rather sluggish.  (Making it very difficult to carry on on in-depth conversation, for example.)  Can't remember names and faces if my life depended on it.  (I worry that someday it may!)  While I'm 45 years old, this is not something that started suddenly or recently.  I've was like this even as a kid in school.  I'm wondering if being this way, even while young, can be an indication of an increase risk of developing the more serious stuff later on -- Alzheimer's, dementia, etc.  Or is this just the way some of us are?  (I suspect insufficient sleep could play some role -- I average 6 - 6.5 hrs/night -- but I still haven't found anything that works for me.  And I've tried LOTS of stuff!)

Do you have low blood pressure or low blood sugar?  What is your iron level?  Have you undergone a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea?

You may want to try DMAE and 7-Keto DHEA.
