ENCORE: Can you recover lost brain cells? Part 1
August 1, 2019
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.

Curcumin and Magnesium for Brain Health, Part 1
July 30, 2019
Protocol for Life Balance Senior Nutrition Education Manager Neil Levin weighs in on nutritional strategies for preventing cognitive decline. While BigPharma flounders in its multi-billion-dollar efforts to find a “magic bullet” drug against Alzheimer’s Disease, an estimated 28 million Baby Boomers are destined to suffer from the debilitating condition by mid-century. A new study suggests that simple lifestyle changes can mitigate risk even in those with Alzheimer’s genes. Levin discusses the science substantiating the brain benefits of curcumin and magnesium. But bio-availability is a problem; most forms of curcumin and magnesium don’t cross the blood-brain barrier. Levin highlights research on Curcumin SPLC (Cogumin) and magnesium threonate (Protosorb Magnesium). Other ancillary nutrients like phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, bacopa, huperzine, CoQ10, fish oil and tocotrienols also deserve consideration in a brain-protective regimen.
