It’s a known and accepted “fact” that our brains slow down and don’t work that well as we age.
But not always! There is a small but considerable group of people who actually get better as they age including better memory!
If saw my recent video on Post Covid Neurologic Damage and/or you experienced covid related things like brain fog, memory lapses, depression and confusion along with disturbing hallucinogenic style dreams you know exactly what I am talking about!
Hopefully like me this was short lived!
Because the exosomal nasal spray I worked on has hit predictable alphabet agency hitches (at least in this country) I’ve had to resort to telling people the other things I make that work!
First, I should mention that the active compounds in Telokynase do cross the blood brain barrier. Now I have posted the effects of that compound on the “stemness” of stem cells and showed how it preserves youth in that critical cell line. Its on the Telokynase page at the bottom.
This means it could cross into the brain, potentially reduce tumorigenesis and lengthen telomeres!!!
That may leave you wondering what it means and how it applies to memory.
Here goes: my research has shown that the brain has only so many ways to respond to injury. Glutamate toxicity is one of several and seems to be a default reaction. The excess or more properly the dysregulation of glutamate in certain types of brain cells (primarily astroglia) mobilizes other brain cells (microglia) in a damaging and often chronic situation. This is shared by all chronic dementia.
By even writing the following I am pretty much guaranteeing that someone is going to steal this info, fund a study with a grant and then pitch it to Big Pharma who will make everyone rich. It will not be me since I’m just a dumb old M.D. clinician not a brilliant Harvard PhD etc.
The mechanism of chronic dementias is shared. This includes Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson’s Richardson Steele, ALS and finally Long Covid. It is inflammatory like so many other age-related pathologies. To date BIGF has not come up with any good treatments in spite of claim studies that show improvement in Alzheimer’s etc. Just ask the caregivers!
So, what to do?
Well, I remind you that just this past week Omega 3’s were shown to improve the odds of dementia by at least 20%- and this study was done with sub standard doses. By the way brain function depends mostly on DHA but do not do not do not short change yourself with a DHA only supplement! You have a body that runs on EPA so why not cover both!
You can get the worlds purest and best fish oil right here.
Covid sucks. Long Covid is worse and we now know that sometimes the spike proteins persist and can incite inflammation in the brain without the other symptoms.
Brain cancer sucks! Stage 4 Glioblastoma does not respond to conventional therapy (might wanna look at ketogenic diets in my friend Tom Seyfried’s Cancer as a Metabolic Disease or if you just want to know how to do it, my book with Dr Oksana Zagorodna PhD-The Keto Edge!
Dementia Sucks- ask any caregiver.
Now the only thing is to get YOU to believe it’s worth fighting it and that we can!!!!!!

If you bother to look at the above article, check at the end under funding! You will see my name. I have said many times I am not rich not do I need to be! I put my money where my mouth is. Does your favorite health guru or “influencer” do the same?!

The above is one of many and there are newer ones as well!
