    There is no way to re build the brain right? Only make what the brain has stronger.

    She repeats her self all the time and I want to work on that and it is due to the brain damage but I think if we make the brain stronger we can work on it.

    The brain can be rebuilt to some small degree but it takes years and constant work to "excercise" those pathways and retrain them. Nuerons and dendrites are slow to regenerate, but they can if there are no circulatory or scar tissue issues.

    Also look into acetyl-L-carnitine-Arginate and Lithium Orotate.

    Cool. The person is on high protein high fiber diet as well with a multiple. They have lost pounds and inches which was amazing since she is not able to work out since she is in a wheel chair. Thanks for the information. If any one else would like to chime in that would be great.

    You may wish to look for more info at Life Extension Foundation - Highest Quality Vitamins And Supplements. They're the best with supplement info and healing, IMO.

    I do not trust life extention. They do not have published stuides on there products. I can't take the risk with the lady I am living with. I have to make sure the product she takes has published studys to show its safe and its efficacy. My life is on the line and I can't take any chance she will kill me haha.

    Well they do write articles with plenty of research summaries and footnotes on conditions and what sorts of supplements/vitamins/herbs can be used. I personally do not buy their stuff as it is too expensive, but I often refer to the information on their site as it seems to be written with a fair amount of objectivity despite the fact they sell many of the same compounds.

    You may also try doing searches on CP on PubMed to see what treatments are currently being tested...there are often articles concerning supplements.

    Thanks. I do not want to sound like a jerk but I personally spoke to the reps from them at a health convention and I was not inpressed and The Doc I work with told me things about them which made me think are there articles really good or is it just to push there products.

    I strongly suggest you give LEF a second chance. One of my good friends, Shawn Wells CSO at MAN Sports will most likely be taking a position there in tha near future. Shawn is a Clinical Dietician and on a short list of those I trust in this industry. He has helped me a great deal in some of my own deficits.

    I've personally not seen much benefit from ALCAR as a standalone (dosing up to 2 grams), in fact for whatever reason it tends to initially make me tired upon ingestion. I've been curious to try other forms.
