Can you recover lost brain cells? Part 1
August 1, 2017
Naturopath Dr. Alan Miller discusses neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to regenerate its capacity in the face of aging, neurodegenerative disease, or injury. A key player is NAD, an energy substance that complements CoQ10 in the mitochondria. NAD can be boosted with a revolutionary new supplement called nicotinamide riboside (Niacel). Studies are underway to evaluate the benefits of nicotinamide riboside in college football players prone to concussions, and in Alzheimer's patients. It supports resveratrol in generating sirtuins, age-defying, and disease-reversing compounds. Dr. MIller introduces the concept of "mitochondrial biogenesis", wherein mitochondria can actually be prompted to regenerate and multiply. In addition to nicotinamide riboside, sulforaphane, curcumin, EGCG, alpha lipoic acid, and quercetin help support mitochondrial biogenesis. Which is preferable for memory: bacopa or ginkgo biloba? Is DHA-rich fish oil best for the brain? What roles do diet, exercise, and stress reduction play in optimizing neuroplasticity? Click HERE for part 2.

A Promising Neuro-Protective Nutraceutical, Part 1
June 30, 2016
Luteolin is a promising neuro-protective nutraceutical, with possible applications to a wide variety of disorders: autism, migraines, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), CFS/fibromyalgia, "brain fog,” multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and even cancer. Dr. Theoharis Theoharides is Director of Molecular Immunopharmacology and Drug Discovery at Tufts University School of Medicine. He explains the possible connection between autism and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome: histamine and cytokines disrupt the blood-brain barrier, cause leaky gut, and allow influx of toxins and autoantigens which result in brain inflammation and damage to neural repair mechanisms. Luteolin, a flavonoid found in a variety of plants, offers a means of curbing mast cell activation in the brain. The product NeuroProtek was formulated by Alginot to maximize luteolin's bio-availability for brain applications. Dr. Theoharides describes extensive research which validates the plausibility for use of luteolin in neuro-behavioral disorders; large-scale clinical trials are planned. A new formulation called “BrainGain” promises to amplify luteolin’s protective effects. Click HERE for part 2.
