Declining Memory, Aging, and Brain Inflammation
BRAIN HEALTH SERIES – PART 3
Declining memory is NOT a normal part of aging! There are many things you can do now to prevent or reverse brain inflammation.
The amino acid, acetyl-l-carnitine is an antioxidant that crosses the blood-brain barrier and enhances and revives the brain, and boosts mental energy. It also helps with the healthy metabolism of fat.
Acetyl-l-carnitine increases the levels of acetylcholine, which is a primary neurotransmitter needed for memory function. It also increases the natural production of serotonin and dopamine and thereby assists in relieving depression.
Acetyl-l-carnitine has properties that are protective against aging and neurodegeneration. Helping to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease and mental decline, acetyl-l-carnitine also help support the body at a cellular level.
Low levels of Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been linked to mild depressive disorder.
Essential fatty acids help protect against inflammation, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, blood pressure and mood disorders. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are two fatty acids that belong to the omega-3 family.
Fish oils are an integral part of the cellular membrane. With deficient fatty acids, in particular, EPA and DHA, the cells lose their ability to hold water and nutrients and often negatively affect communication with other cells.
Fish oil reduces inflammation and plays a huge role in brain function. Supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), has been shown to have lower rates of ADD/ADHD, depression, and anxiety.
Note: Sources of fish oil must be carefully considered.
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body, as it helps regulate over 325 enzymes and is utilized by almost every organ system. Most adults are deficient in magnesium.
Musculoskeletal symptoms of magnesium deficiency include eye twitches, muscle cramps, and muscle tension, muscle soreness, backaches, neck pain, tension headaches, and TMJ dysfunction.
Smooth muscle symptoms of magnesium deficiency include constipation, menstrual cramps, and difficulty swallowing.
Cardiovascular symptoms of magnesium deficiency include palpitations, heart arrhythmias, angina, high blood pressure and mitral valve prolapse.
The amino acid L-Taurine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter and has a calming effect on the brain.
The combination of magnesium and taurine helps stabilize cell membranes and have sedative effects on the control of the nervous system.
Take steps to prevent or reduce inflammation in your brain.
