Several other nutrients also might protect against cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease. Acetyl-L-carnitine, 2 grams daily, has been found to improve attention spans, long-term memory, and verbal abilities in some Alzheimer's patients. Phosphatidyl serine, a phosphorus-containing fat, is essential for the health of cell membranes, particularly brain cells. Dosages of 300 mg daily have been found helpful in improving memory, but 100 mg also might work in mild cases of memory impairment.
