Dementia, sometimes called “senility,” is not a part of the normal aging process, and shows that some other disease may be present. Dementia affects a person’s ability to be successful in carrying out their activities of daily living. Accurate diagnosis of the disease that is present is necessary for treating the dementia properly. (more…)
Fisetin is a unique polyphenol flavonoid that has demonstrated a high level of neuro-protection along with improvement of memory. A standardized extract of fisetin is now undergoing extensive scientific studies by the Salk Institute for Biological Studies to prove its value for general brain health. A patent has already been issued, entitled “Methods of Using Flavonoids to Enhance Memory.” It appears that fisetin is another useful nutrient tool in the preservation of cognitive well being.

CDP Choline (cytidine-5’-diphosphocholine, or citicoline) is a unique form of the essential nutrient choline that helps regulate bioelectrical activities in the brain. Over the last thirty years, CDP Choline has been studied in numerous animal and human clinical trials for its potential to enhance brain and cognitive function in a variety of clinical situations including memory loss, dementia, stroke, and head trauma. CDP Choline has achieved promising results in older individuals with inefficient memory, cognitive deficits and early-stage Alzheimer’s. Therefore, it is worthwhile to discuss the many facets of CDP Choline’s role in cognition. (more…)
B vitamins are essential to health. Your nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver, mouth, muscles, gastrointestinal tract, and brain depend on them for proper functioning. They are coenzymes that are involved in energy production and are also useful for alleviation of depression and anxiety.
As we get older our ability to absorb B vitamins from our food declines. In some Alzheimer’s patients, it was found that the problem was due to a deficiency of vitamin B-12 plus vitamin B-complex in an accepted multivitamin. (more…)
