Older adults improve cognitive performance with nutritional supplements

In addition to exercise and cognitive training, a new study out of the University of South Florida (USF) has shown that a formula of nutrients high in antioxidants and other natural components boosted the speed of seniors' brains.

The concoction (developed by USF) is called NT-020 and it was tested on adults aged 65 to 84 who had no diagnosed memory disorders. It contains extracts from blueberries and green tea as well as vimain D3 and amino acids (including carnosine).

The group of 105 adults was split into 2 groups; 53 got placebos and 52 got the NT-020.

The 52 who received the NT-020 had improvements in cognitive processing speed. 

The researchers want to do more tests and think that a study of seniors with memory impairments make create even more dramatic increases.
