Alzheimer's Disease Part VII - How to Treat and Prevent Alzheimer's Disease With Supplements


Visitors: 280

As we mentioned in previous articles Alzheimer's disease is a brain disorder named after German physician Alois Alzheimer. Alzheimer's destroys brain cells, causing problems with memory, thinking and behavior severe enough to affect language communication, memory, lifelong hobbies or social life. Alzheimer's gets worse over time, and it is fatal. In this article, we will discuss how to prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease with supplements.

1. Melatonin

As aging, the production of melatonin in the pineal gland diminishes. The intake of melatonin supplement may exert a powerful antioxidant activity that easily helps to prevent the formation of cell radicals in our body including the brain.

2. Carnosine

Carnosine helps to block the formation of glycosylation, caused by sugar aldehydes reacting with the amino acid on the protein molecule. It also helps to remove toxic chemicals such as copper and zinc from the brain.


DHEA is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland that helps to regulate the balance of our body hormones. Deficiency of DHEA causes hormone imbalance in men as well as women. Study show that intake of DHEA is necessary for aging men for improving mental ability and alleviating stress.

4. Coenezyme Q 10

Coenezyme Q 10 helps to increase the circulation and oxygen levels of the blood stream. As we know that lack of oxygen in the blood can exacerbate cognitive deterioration.

5. Lecithin

Choline and inositol in the lecithin helps to increase production of acetylcholine in our body helping the communication and signal-transmission between brain cells. An increase in lecithin will prompt brain cells to produce more acetylcholine, thus improving memory.

6. Taurine

Besides helping to protect the formation of free radicals in brain cells and enhance nervous cell function, taurine is essential in protecting the supply of magnesium and calcium in the brain.
