The only drug I recommend for improving your memory
Normally, I don't recommend drugs for very many health problems. I've found that natural treatments work just as well without all the side effects. But there are exceptions. And one of the best is a drug that works like nothing I've ever seen for memory loss.
Piracetam is a remarkable drug for boosting your memory. It's been on the European market for many years. It is totally non-toxic. No one has ever seen any serious side effects — even when using extremely high dosages.
Piracetam works by stimulating the polyribosomes in the brain cells. These increase the synthesis of certain proteins responsible for memory. The drug even increases the production of the polyribosomes themselves.
Can You Restore Your Hearing by Taking Nutrients?
Most doctors don't think nutrition has anything to do with hearing loss. But several new studies show just how important nutrition is to your ears - and how some people are actually reversing their hearing loss.

Is there any science behind it? Lots! Studies have shown it to:
Improve memory and attention span.
Protect against memory loss caused by physical injury and chemical poisoning.
Improve blood circulation to the brain. It may even alleviate memory loss caused by circulatory problems in the brain.
Improve most aspects of mental function. This includes reading speed and accuracy, short-term memory and verbal memory in dyslexia patients.
Improve the condition of Alzheimer's patients.
So why doesn't your doctor prescribe it?ÿ Because the FDA hasn't approved it for use in this country. Nonetheless, the FDA does allow you to import non-FDA approved medication. All you need is a prescription from your doctor.
Furthermore, some compounding pharmacies are also beginning to make Piracetam. I have used Piracetam myself, as well as in my patients, for over 10 years now, and I have never seen it fail to improve memory.
The usual starting dose is 4,000-8,000 mg a day for the first two to three days. Take this much as a loading dose to get things started right away. Then decreased to 1,600-2,400 mg per day. The half-life of Piracetam in the blood is about five hours. So to get the most out of it, make sure you take it in three divided doses over the course of the day.
You'll usually see noticeable improvement within two to three weeks. I recommend that you continue the regular dose for at least three months. Many of my patients who take it this long will not see any regression in their memory. In other words, the benefits are often permanent.
