Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day: Brain Protection
By Dr. Erik Fleischman –
One of the hottest topics in Regenerative Medicine now is Neuroprotection or very simply, saving the brain cells! Many people have fears of increasing rates of Alzheimers Disease, Parkinsons and Senile Dementia.
The brain, unlike other organs, has a limited number of neurons that don’t regenerate easily like muscle or bone. Therefore protecting them is essential – especially for those who may drink too much, hold too much stress and stay awake at night.
The substances that have been shown to help protect brain cells are Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Coenzyme Q10, Ginko Biloba and GABA to name a few. Also Melatonin and Cannabinoid Receptor Agonists like CBD add great value.
While these are protective, what can be done for those who are already experiencing loss of cognitive brain function? In tomorrow’s tip we will dig deeper into the treatments available for these patients.
