In Memorium: I would like to dedicate this article to Semen Kogan who died on October 9, 2012. Such  a man as Semen Kogan was,  it is very hard to find the words to describe him. He was a compassionate individual, living life to the fullest, as if that day was his last day. As a father, he was loved by his kids. As a manager, he was loved by his associates. As a  friend, he was a man whose ear you could always bend. We mourn his passing: Ha’makom yenahem etkhem betokh she’ar avelei Tziyonvi’Yerushalayim.

    Should have just said Vitamin B-Complex since the B vitamins work together. That would have left room for a lot of other supplements which have been shown to be helpful like Gingko Biloba.
