Brain function

By Dr. Kyaw Nyunt (Robert Koe)

It is a myth that brain cells die as you get older.

You can get smarter up to Age 100 by reading, doing puzzles, engaging in exercise like Tai Chi, playing instruments or learning dances.

Synapses are like wires that connect brain cells and they grow by above mentioned activities. They don’t die.

Acetyl choline is important for the cognition and drugs that we are using like donepezil (Aricept) prevent breakdown of Acetyl choline and they don’t work very well.

I will mention the diet, minerals and vitamins, and herbs that will reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s diseases.

  • Phosphatidylserine. 300 mg. a day to preserve serotonin and dopamine.
  • Bacopa. 300 mg. a day.
  • Ginkgo biloba. 120 mg. twice a day. Avoid if you are taking Coumadin.
  • Vitamin B 12. 800 mcg. a day.
  • Huperzine A (Chinese Club Moss) 0.2 mg. a day.
  • Essential fatty acids. flaxseed oil, fish oil.
  • Acetyl L carnitine. 500 mg. 3 times a day.
  • Phosphatidylcholine in fish, egg yolk, legumes, nuts and vegetables.
  • Turmeric (Curcumin). Cook your curry or go to Indian restaurant.
  • Zinc.
  • Vitamin B 6, B12, Folate and Vitamin D.
  • Jelly fish (Apoaequorin). Prevagen is the trade name for this. 10 to 20 mg. a day.
  • Citicoline is for ATP production and protects against free radicals . 500 to 1000mg. a day.
  • Dental care like flossing, brushing and rinsing to kill P. gingivalis which causes heart attacks, stroke and dementia by way of chronic inflammation.
  • PPIs like omeprazole lowers zinc level and increase risk of dementia.
  • Inorganic copper from copper pipes in drinking water is detrimental. Measure copper level and use reverse osmosis filter to lower it.

    Take care.
    Thanks.
