Mild Cognitive Impairment can be the earliest recognizable sign that processes related to Alzheimer’s disease may be occurring in a person’s brain. Unfortunately, there is no specific curative drug or other treatment for it at this time.
However, a number of substances and activities have been reported to be of some help in slowing or forestalling loss of cognition, and more are currently being studied. MCI911 monitors research and other developments, and spotlights reports and findings that seem promising for bolstering cognition and aiding MCI patients.
The company is a “sister” firm to Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc. (ALZgerm.org), which encourages research on the possible roles of microbes in causing or accelerating Alzheimer’s disease.
