    Brain exercises may help improve mental acuity (memory, focus, concentration, and understanding), although (based on our research to date) this improvement may be temporary and may continue while utilizing SMART or any other program.The SMART program (or any other program) does not improve cognitive functioning on a long-term basis.

    Similarly, the program does not offer a cure for dementia and is not meant to help prevent and/or lessen the extent of cognitive and/or functional symptoms of MCI/early stage dementia by itself.

    These claims have not been evaluated by the FDA and results may vary between individuals.

    It is recommended that you contact your physician if you think you may have any symptoms of dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease.

    Claims made regarding the efficacy of the SMART program is based upon on the peer-reviewed, published research of Dr. John Den Boer. This research (as well as external research concerning the SMART program) is on-going and, hence, any claims re: the efficacy of the SMART program will be updated dynamically in accordance with research findings.

    Dr. DenBoer and SMART Brain Aging Inc. greatly welcomes research collaboration/external research validation and greatly welcomes joint research efforts and/or the sharing of data sets.
