Chromium improved memory

Recent research has linked Alzheimer’s disease to glucose metabolism in the brain, doctors in one study said. 

Twenty-six older men and women with early signs of memory decline took 1,000 mcg of chromium picolinate or a placebo. After 12 weeks, while the placebo group had not changed, the chromium group had improved learning, recall, and performed better in memory recognition tasks and had fewer memory errors than at the start of the study. Using a magnetic resonance brain scan, researchers also found the chromium group had greater activity in several parts of the brain.
