Fad Supplement: Nitric Oxide Pills
Y ou can't buy nitric oxide pills because it's a gas. That doesn't keep pill pushers from labeling their product as nitric oxide (NO), even though what they're selling are ingredients that your body MAY turn into NO. They don't tell you that there is no guarantee that your body will do so.
Memory-Impairing Drugs
We use some medications and herbs primarily to work as an anticholinergic.  These include motion sickness drugs, anti-spasmodics, anti-diarrheal medication and remedies for excessive tearing, runny nose or salivation, asthma and overactive bladder.  The cumulative load of anticholinergic exposure seems to be correlated with worse memory and attention.
