How Do I Know If I (or My Loved One) Has MCI?

Symptoms of MCI may include:​

  • Forgetting to go to events and appointments
  • Losing things often

How Is CerefolinNAC® Different From Over-the-Counter (OTC) Options?

The ingredients in CerefolinNAC® are different from the ingredients found in most OTC vitamins.

Most OTC folic acid products need to be broken down in the body before the folate can be used. Many people might have a compromised ability to complete this activation.
