HealthierU: Maintaining Cognitive Function

The increase in the incidence of Alzheimer’s Disease is a concern shared by most Americans. Aging is challenging enough without fear of declining cognitive function.

The cause of Alzheimer’s disease is unknown, but the development of Alzheimer’s disease begins decades before actual symptoms are present.
A diet of processed or fast foods with too much sugar and saturated fat can clog our blood vessels, impair our circulation, and create the foundation for impaired cognitive function, as well as diabetes. High-stress lifestyles have been shown to enhance the loss of cognitive function as well. 

Did You Know?

The inability to focus and remember is not limited to Alzheimer’s patients solely. Similar impairment can also be found in adolescents diagnosed with A.D.D and in individuals who tend to have too much work on their plate.

A good exercise program, staying mentally active (but not multitasking), and getting adequate sleep can all keep our minds oxygenated and functioning. Some nutritional supplements have proven beneficial in the prevention of brain deterioration and the support of brain health.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine has demonstrated a valuable role in protecting cognitive function.t It is neuroprotective, acts as an antioxidant, and helps to increase the production of neurotransmitters in the brain, particularly the main neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.

Phosphatidyl Serine is another supplement that has demonstrated value in preserving brain function by its ability to minimize the formation of amyloid plaque, a major contributor to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Memory Plus is a synergistic combination of nutrients which works through various pathways for the total enhancement of mental clarity, the improvement in memory retention, and the development of attention. Taken along with acetyl-l-carnitine, DHA, and phosphatidyl serine, they can prove helpful for individuals attempting to improve cognitive function, memory, and attention.
