epilim:cognitive
Hello nieki,
At 67 years I have gone back to university and it is because of Epilim the Hospital gave me [without knowledge or permission] in 2005 that I have to rehabilitate my brain every morning when I wake.
Try a teaspoon of dissolved TAURINE every day and report on how you recover that long lost "focus".
Thank you in expectation.
