The American Cancer Society’s website notes that, after chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment, “the sometimes vague yet distressing mental changes cancer patients notice are real, not imagined. They might last a short time, or they might go on for years. These changes can make people unable to go back to their school, work, or social activities, or make it so that it takes a lot of mental effort to do so. Chemo brain affects everyday life for many people, and more research is needed to help prevent and cope with it.”

Symptoms of “chemo brain” include:

  • Memory lapses – forgetting things you usually have no trouble recalling
  • Trouble concentrating – difficulty focusing on task at hand; having a short attention span; “spacing out”
  • Trouble remembering – details like names, dates, and sometimes larger events
  • Trouble multi-tasking – like answering the phone while cooking
  • Taking longer to finish things
  • Trouble remembering – common words or finding the right words to finish a sentence

BR+ NAD has been shown to be effective at treating “chemo brain,” just as it does the “mental fog,” or “cognitive dysfunction” associated with years of addiction, alcoholism, chemical dependence, aging, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.  NAD has a powerful capacity to “reset” the brain to its original set point.
