I think we are missing the point of why I am taking it . I suffered a TBI in an accident . I have a memory impairment . Im using it as a neuro protectant . It highers the amount of oxigen available to the brain . The side effects of this med is a enhancement of performance . Id say many people after the age of 62 experience a drop in red blood cells . Its also a time when many of these folks have the early signs of dementia . The older they get , the less red blood cells they produce , the less oxigen the brain gets . So , Its a treatment and because its side effects are good you should all keep an open mind to this .
