Haha yes thank you.. I have a basic question

If neurotransmitters are significantly reduced in AD patients, wouldn't neurotransmitter precursors via supplements relieve some aspects of the disease? Or is the axon to damaged to make any difference from the tangles? As in the synaptic vesicles do not reach the synapse in preparation for action potential. Or maybe for example replacement of the adrenal glands could elevate epinephrine.

Yes, to an extent amino acid therapy may be useful. I personally suspect that chromium and acetyl-carnitine supplementation may be much more cost effective as a treatment option, but that would be as a preventative measure rather than to alleviate symptoms. My rational being that insulin resistance appears to be one of the most likely causal factor influencing Alzheimer's.

If only patients were advised to eliminate soda consumption, insulin resistance would significantly decrease.

But alas regarding traditional herbs, Lagestroemia speciosa has some serious potential.

Have you tried SodaStream? The coca-cola version of SodaStream replicates the taste of the original but without aspartame, preservatives, and sugar! A healthy alternative to regular soda. Equivalent to Nicotine gum/patch.

I am not sure who makes it, but there is a bad-ass new soda machiene at the local college pizza place. Same sort of idea--you pick your drink (basically any name brand soda) and then you can choose within a drink subflavors (added on by the machiene itself). I will try to drop by this weekend and get a picture, it is a trip...

Please do! And if that technology isn't yet mass produced and/or patented. Well, consider that a business opportunity. Insert evil face. I recommend locating them in college campus spots, that's where all the hippie liberals hang.

Another advanced prospect are artifical pancreas. Just the concept of artifical organs are amazing!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mannitol#In_foods

Would Mannitol be a healthy alternative to sugar/high fructose corn syrup?

Probably not. Most biologic systems developed for glucose. You would probably get the same from any sugar alcohols. I love xylitol, but it is only really good in certain instances. The best thing you can do is just to add fiber to the mix to lower the glycemic impact. It is not so much about calories as it is glycemic load. I like to use inulin and pectin myself.

Oh and if you are looking for 0 calorie sweeteners that aren't going to give you diarrhea or some sort of GI upset just get some stevia smile.gif The plants been around forever, it was just never popular because sugar taste better lol.

Zevia has Stevia as the 5th ingredient, so Zevia "balances" the sweetness.

Thanks for expanding my awareness of inulin and pectin! Vegetable powder works as well too.

I can't wait till the important research is finally done on the differences between various fibers (not just soluble vs. insoluble). I like to take frozen berries and heat them on the stove adding a bunch of pectin to make a super thick jelly that taste super bomb and helps balance out a meal.

If you want a real brain workout, you should try to learn this song and sing it at the same time lol. I just decided to give it a go, and it took quite a while smile.gif
