Report Finds Alzheimer's Killing More People Than Breast And Prostate Cancer Combined
Date:9/22/2009

s, M.M.Sc., Executive Director of The Natural Hormone Institute and co-author of From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well, has found that diet and specific nutritional supplements can also proactively support long-term cognitive function.

As men and women age, the body's ability to produce adequate supplies of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and phosphatidylserine (PS) declines. PS is particularly important as it enables the brain to metabolize glucose and bind with neurotransmitters, all of which are important to learning, memory and other cognitive functions. Age also causes a decline in choline, a natural amine found in lipids that make up cell membranes and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Because acetylcholine helps brain cells communicate with each other, it plays an important role in learning and memory.

"Eating foods like egg yolks, soy, wheat germ, cooked beef, chicken, veal and turkey livers, that are rich in phosphatidylcholine, the major delivery form of choline, can improve the body's ability to maintain cognitive learning and memory functions," said James. "However we find that it can be difficult to elevate levels sufficiently with diet alone. We often recommend supplementation wih PS, choline and pregnenolone (another hormone that affects memory). These are available in over-the-counter formulations available at most health food stores."

Studies have shown that foods rich in Vitamin E, beta carotine, B12 and Vitamin D have shown promise in slowing down Alzheimer's disease. A new study now suggests that low levels of vitamin D may even reduce brain function in older people. This study, published in the Journal of Geriatric Psychology and Neurology, found that older people with lower cognitive function had low levels of vitamin D in their bloodstream, while those with normal brain function had higher levels. In fact, those subjects with the lowest levels of vitamin D were four times more likely to
