Mom is in her late seventies. She seems to forget what she said or where she put things. Are there any vitamins she can take or any advice to do?

In brief: Many things

This could be due to normal aging or early alzheimer's or a sign of other problems.
I advise she see a holistic md for a thorough evaluation-esp. Thyroid (see http://bit.Ly/1cjnybx ) ; b12(see http://bit.Ly/1607tg3). She might have gluten sensitivity etc. Many supps can help- a good mulitivit., ginkgo, bacopa, phosphtidylserine, vinpocetine, ashwagandha, acetlyl-l-carnitine- see http://bit.Ly/1ffyzbq.
