Long term Cognition via a healthy intact Blood-Brain Barrier

Dr. Rhonda Patrick explains the blood-brain barrier.   Individuals with early cognitive dysfunction develop brain capillary damage and BBB breakdown in the hippocampus irrespective of Alzheimer’s Aβ and/or tau biomarker changes, suggesting that BBB breakdown is an early biomarker of human cognitive dysfunction independent of Aβ and tau. Here is a discussion about this paper.… Continue reading Long term Cognition via a healthy intact Blood-Brain Barrier

NAD+ for Healthspan, Long-term Cognition, and Energy

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) plays a fundamental role in life and health through the regulation of energy biogenesis, redox homeostasis, cell metabolism, and the arbitration of cell survival via linkages to apoptosis and autophagic pathways. Apart from reducing the functions of mitochondria, biological changes such as cognitive impairments, DNA damage and sirtuin gene inactivation, are… Continue reading NAD+ for Healthspan, Long-term Cognition, and Energy
