Dietary Supplements for Cognitive Function

Numerous research studies are focused on the effectiveness of dietary supplements for cognitive function. Two lesser-known supplements have been shown to support neurons and synapses in areas of the brain tied to memory, cognition and executive function.

Bacopa Monnieri is a nootropic herb used in traditional Indian Medicine, and magensium threonate is a form or magnesium that effectively crosses the blood brain barrier. Both are supported by numerous animal and human studies as memory enhancers, whether managing a neurodegenerative disease or to help fend off age-related decline.

Hormone Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease

Neurology Solutions Movement Disorders Center offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to patients seen frequently by the practice to help address mobility and mood and improve quality of life. Hormone Therapy for Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases can reduce certain symptoms associated with PD and reduce dementia risk in the general elderly population.

Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration shows promise

Researchers say Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration (MEND)−a combination therapy to slow neurodegeneration−may partially reverse and stabilize cognitive decline. Participants with mild cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s style dementia who took part in a two-year MEND study demonstrated real, life-altering improvements after following the MEND protocol for 5 to 24 months, the study showed.

The MEND program calls for interventions to treat conditions such as inflammation, stress and diabetes that could be associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia. It involves multiple components including dietary adjustments, exercise, stress reduction, hormone balance, sleep optimization and integration of certain vitamins and supplements to the patient’s regular routine.

Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness, Prevention

Brain Awareness Week brings attention to brain science advances and advocates for science funding for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and ALS. Read on for information and resources in the prevention of TBIs.
