There is a lot of anecdotal evidence about supplements supposedly helping fight Alzheimer’s disease. However, anecdotal evidence is not the same as validated research. Join us as we hear from a board certified neurologist about what the latest research says about what is really proven in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
