Memory loss or amnesia (from Greek meaning "without memory”) is characterised by a loss of memory. It is usually associated with brain damage, disease, or other psychological trauma. Amnesia can also be caused by the use of sedatives and certain hypnotic drugs. Essentially, amnesia is loss of memory. The memory can be either wholly or partially lost due to the extent of damage that was caused.

Memory Loss Info
“Memory... is the diary that we all carry about with us.”
Or not. Memory loss or amnesia (from Greek meaning "without memory”) is characterised by a loss of memory. It is usually associated with brain damage, disease, or other psychological trauma. Amnesia can also be caused by the use of sedatives and certain hypnotic drugs. Essentially, amnesia is loss of memory. The memory can be either wholly or partially lost due to the extent of damage that was caused.
There are two main types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia and anterograde amnesia. Retrograde amnesia is the inability to retrieve information that was acquired before a particular date, usually the date of an accident or an operation. In some cases, the memory loss can extend back decades, while in others the person may lose only a few months of memory. Anterograde amnesia is the inability to transfer new information from the short-term store into the long-term store. People with this type of amnesia cannot remember things for long periods of time. These two types are not mutually exclusive. Both can occur within a patient at one time.
In people suffering amnesia, the ability to recall recent immediate information is still retained, and they may still be able to form new memories - yet, a severe reduction in the ability to learn new material and retrieve old information can be observed. Patients can learn new procedural knowledge. In addition, priming (both perceptual and conceptual) can assist amnesiacs in the learning of fresh non-declarative knowledge. People with amnesia can retain substantial intellectual, linguistic, and social skill despite these profound impairments in the ability to recall specific information encountered in prior learning episodes.
It is important that a health professional is consulted. There are natural remedies that may benefit amnesia.
Particularly supplementing with choline and phosphatidylserine may confer some benefits. These two molecules are lipid components that support structure and function of neurons that are involved in memory acquisition and recall. Choline plays an important role in the neuronal processes underlying memory via two different mechanisms. It serves both as a precursor for the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is important for neuronal signalling involved in memory, and also for phosphatidylcholine. It is believed that reduced levels of phosphatidylcholine in neurons may contribute to memory loss and other forms of cognitive decline - so supplementation with both choline and phosphatidylserine may confer some benefits or at least reduce symptoms of memory loss.
helped with fullness in my ears
I brought Tebonin from a pharmacy to see if it helped with my ear problem. Which I was getting popping and a blocked feeling in my ears.
It seemed to work and I took 2 a day for a week. Whether it was a coincidence I don't know but they did clear. I still get a low ringing noise but that doesn't bother me much compared to the blocked up feeling. I have since purchased another box for my daughter who is having memory problems and brain fog after getting over severe depression. Hoping this will also help her with brain function and getting better circulation in her feet to. Will post another review on how that goes. :)
We were delighted & surprised when we compared notes
My partner and I both started taking Cognizin at the same time, at the recommended introductory dose. After 14 days or so we commented that each of us were finding our usually taxing administrative work tasks were much easier to cope with and that we both were able to complete complex written work in one hit, instead of it dragging on for ever over days! That's when we clicked for the first time that the Cognizin was making all the difference. Clear headed, even when tired, my brain can operate better than it has in a long long time. Both in our mid-sixties, this is a heartening experience, as I think we each were thinking we were in a downward age-related spiral!!! We will be continuing to take Brain Boost. Definitely.
Have read the quality control of this fish oil is great. I have noticed a difference in my skin. Much softer. Was very dry previously due to hormonal changes in menopause. Recommend. Taste is nice. I bought fruit punch. Easy to take straight off spoon.
