Did you know over 6 million Americans aged 65 or older are living with Alzheimer's dementia? Established in 1980, the Alzheimer's Association is the nation's leading voluntary health organization for Alzheimer's care, support, and research.

Functional mushrooms are also known to improve cognition and increase the release of nerve growth factor, which is a protein that helps improve nerve functionality in those suffering from various forms of dementia.
