Is anybody on the forum taking any Nootropic Supplements for memory deterioration  ???

Did a search on the forum and could not find any discussions or threads on this subject.

I have been on Hormone treatment since December 2015 and Abiraterone for about 2.5 years...............I have done some research and had discussion's with my Oncologists and understand that with the lack of Testosterone this can affect your memory and mental abilities.............

I am really fit with all the turbo training and cycling that I am doing which is a massive help but definitely seeing a reduction in mental fitness...............

Medical opinion is that nootroponic supplements are snake oil with no scientific evidence to support them, while foods rich in the relevant chemicals (oily fish, etc) are good for us any way and should be encouraged. If you want to take any supplements, best to check with your oncologist or nurse specialist first that the supplement will not affect, disrupt or react with your HT.
