Food For Brains?

No, its not one of those "will make you smarter if you eat three times of day" type of pills (those do not work to my knowledge).

Rather it's a drug geared towards improving your memory--and they have the science to back it up.

(Israel 21st Century) A natural functional food ingredient that improves brain functions in both children and adults, Lipogen contains phosphatidylserine (PS), a nutrient found in fish, green leafy vegetables, soybeans and rice, which goes to the brain and regulates metabolic processes such as neuronal signaling. Studies have associated the nutrient to improvements in memory and mood, and specifically linked it to delaying symptoms of early-onset Alzheimer's.

"PS is a naturally occurring material within the membranes of the cells in the brain. Generally the brain produces the required amount of the material, but age as well as the stress of modern life slows down its production," explained David Rutenberg, the founder and CEO of the Galilee-based company Lipogen which developed and produces the product.

This drug sounds very interesting, although I'll personally hold off using it, unless I am in need of passing a major examine.

Joking aside, I could see this drug by Lipogen being very useful for Alzheimer's patients, as it may help slow down (or hopefully stop) the affects of this fairly common disease.
