Many supplements: B vits. May help (esp. B12 if you're deficient).Phosphatidylserine, acetyl-l-carnitine, bacopa, vinpocetine, dmae, gingko ashwagandha & rhodiola are all proven to help.There are entire books on this subject.A good article is at http://www.Smart-publications.Com/articles/be-smarter-think-faster-and-protect-your-brain-with-12-smart-nutrients.
