I was in an accident when I was 17. I was hit by a car as I was crossing the street. The car was going 40 mph (speeding by the way) and I was hit head on. In the course of the accident, I was flung up onto the car's windshield (my body actually broke it) and I was chucked nearly 40 Ft from the car. I hit my head and was knocked unconscious. I stayed that way until I was in the ambulance where I would briefly gain consciousness for moments. It took me several hours to fully regain consciousness. I had also bruised and hurt my hip bones, broke my clavicle in half on one side, had black eyes, and road "rash" on my entire left side. I was lucky.
Needless to say, I do believe I have suffered some long term damage to my brain.
On top of that incident, I have also dealt with two bouts of meningitis, an infection in the fluid that surrounds the brain and is in the spinal cord as well as under-going ECT for depression.
I would say my brain has been through the ringer at only 30 years old.
Because of all this trauma, I do have some memory loss issues and well as some other cognitive issues. For instance, I have trouble recalling things, remembering things in both short and long term and understanding some concepts. I am what some people call, "a little slow" and it makes my day to day life rather frustrating at times.
I tried a new supplement that is supposed to help with these things**. It is called Prevagen.
Prevagen claims to improve memory, help you have a sharper mind and protects the memories you have**.
I was given a 30 day supply to try and I was admittedly skeptical. I can say that in my experience, I did actually notice a slight difference in memory recall after just 2 weeks*.
I was pleasantly surprised when after 30 days, I was more able to have a better short term memory recall*.
Now, I wouldn't say it is a cure, but it certainly helps your brain become healthier**.
I bet you are wondering what Prevagen is. Prevagen is a dietary supplement that contains only one active ingredient-Apoaequorin. This was first discovered in jellyfish and is now produced in labs. It helps the brain protect it's cells by slowing the cell death.
I love that Prevagen gave me noticeable results so fast and that it is completely vegetarian and cruelty free. No jellyfish are used to make the formula.
You can also find more information on Prevagen on their website. Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Become a fan on Facebook!
