I have been doing research on different dietary supplements and many clinical studies have shown the following supplements to have many benefits on the brain/body:

(I’ve added links from Amazon that are the least expensive and best brands)

1) Turmeric – studies have shown turmeric may prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease by removing amyloyd plaque buildup in the brain. (This is widely used in India, and Alzheimer’s is unheard of in this country)

2) Astaxanthin – must have anti-oxidant that penetrates the blood brain barrier that fights free radicals. This is the world’s strongest anti-oxidant. It is thousands of times stronger than vitamin C and E.

3) DHA – (docosahexaenoic acid) This is essential fuel for the brain to function.

4) Coconut oil – too many health benefits to list! Coconut oil has been shown to reverse Alzheimer’s disease.

5) Magnesium Threonate –

Magnesium is one of the greatest deficiencies in the modern western world, which is particularly troubling given the mineral’s involvement in over 300 enzymatic actions in the body. Magnesium threonate is one of the most bioavailable forms of magnesium and specifically for improving magnesium levels in the brain.
