Resourses for use by our visitors
Here is is information about herbs and natural substances used for nerval system improvements. We also have other resourses for use by our visitors. A complete list of the resourses is given here.
Herbal and natural chemical modification of the nerval system
Nerve cells are capable of conducting signals. They are also capable of deciding to conduct signals or not based on signals resceived from other nerve cells. Because of these capabalities of the nerval cells, the nervous sytem can resceive information from the senses, make logical analyses, take decisions and send commands out to the body to act.
The signal carried along a nerve cell is based upon changes in concentration of potassium and sodium ions outside and inside the cell walls. Signals going from one nerve cell to another are carried by chemicals released by one nerve cell and absorbed by another, - so called transmittor-substances.
Some of these substances causes a nerve signal to be transmitted along a nerve cell to other nerve cells - exitatory transmittor substances. Other of these substances, stop or hinders nerv signals to be sent - inhibitory trasnitter substances. Both these functions in the right degree or right proportion are necessary for proper function of the brain.
Too much of exitatory transmitter substances or too less inhibitory transmitter substances can result in excessive actions, giving symptoms like anxiety, irritability, sleeplessness or hyperactivity.
Too less of exitatory transmitter substances or too much inhibitory transmitter substances can result in too little actions, giving symptoms like depression, reduced concentration, drawsiness or slow reactions.
Because nerve signals and logical processing in the nervous system is based upon chemistry, substances given to the body can alter the function of the nervous system in a conciderable degree. Nerve function modifying substances can be supplied through herbs, as pharmacological products or as natural minerals.
Also physical diseases in the body can wholly or partly originate form psychological or nerval disturbances. In these cases the nerves sends improper signals to body parts that respond eith functional disturbances. These disturbances make signal go back to the nervous system that are felt as pain or will further alter the function of the nervous system.
When such functional problems have lasted long enough, also structural changes can occure in body parts.
Because physical diseases may be caused partly or wholly by nervous mechanisms, substances that regulate the nervous system will also often make a person get better from physical symptoms or diseases.
Furthermore, physical diseases can cause anxiety and chronic pain, and this nervous component can over time be the main problem for the suffering person. Aslo in these cases can nerval or psychological modificators be of good help.
Here is a list of herbs and other natural substances used to improve or modify nervous system functions:
Acetyl L-Carnitine HCI - This substance can be used as a material for producing the neurotransmittor acetylcholine. A supplement of this substance may therefore generally improve the function of the nervous system by an increased amount of acetylcholine. The substance also seems to improve the mitochondrial function in nerve cells and thereby improve the energy supply within these cells. Acetyl-L-Carnitine sems to better the nervous system functions and slow down nerve cell degeneration by patients suffering from Alzheimer and Nervous system failur due to diabetes.
Bacopa or Water Hyssop - Bacopa is a group of 70 - 100 aquatic plants in the family Plantaginaceae. This herb is a traditional remedy used in India to improve cognitive and other nervous functions. It may enhance memory, improve brain function, and also increase mental performance. The herb may also have effects against cancer.

Coffee also have anti-oxidative actions and seems to slow down aging changes, included aging changes in the nervous system. To much of caffeine however, can disturbe sleep and thereby have some negative impact upon the nervous system.
Choline - Choline is used to make acetylcholine, an important neurotransmittor. It is also an important constituent of all membranous structures in cells. Such structures are especially abumdant in the brain. A supplement of choline may improve memory, thought processes and other nerval functions. A supplement of choline may also help to reduce excessive body fat, because choline also play a role in lipid metabolism.
Copper - Copper is a component in enzymes that are tools in the energy supply functions in all cells, including nerval cells. Low copper levels seem to occur often in children with hyperactivity.When taking zinc one should take additional copper to prevent deficiency of this trace mineral, as zinc and copper compete for absorption.
Damiana - This herb stimulates the fuction of the nervous system and improves mood. It is however mostly used to stimulete those nervous functions important for the sexual functions. It helps against the symproms of menopause.
Glycine - Glycine is a basic amino acid wich is a structural component in most proteins.

The species Magnolia officinalis is mostly used for medical applications. The aromatic bark contains magnolol and honokiol, two polyphenolic compounds that relieve anxiety and. Magnolia bark also helps to reduce allergic and asthmatic reactions and inhibits bacteria causing caries and periodontitis.
Methylcobalamin - A type of Vitamin B12: Elderly perons with depression seem to often be deficit in this vitamine. This substance seem to stimulate the rapair of damages nerve cells. It may also work to reduce homocysteine levels in the body. Increased amounts of this homocysteine seems to reduce cognitive functions and increase the risk of heart disease.
Omega-3-fatty acids - This type of fatty acids are important for the blood circulation, the digestive system, the musculoscheletal system and the nervous system. A good amount of these acid types in the diet helps against derpression and elevates mood. Omega-3 acids are found in fish, especially fat fish, fish oil, flax-seeds and flaxseed oil.

Valeriana seems to work best when it is used during some time. It has a long traditional history of medical use in Europe and elsewhere. Among possible working substances in the plant are alkaloides, GABA, valeric acid and volatile oils.
Vinpocetine - This substance can improve cerebral blood flow and oxygenation, improve the production of ATP and thus yielding mrre energy to the brain, and help himder clot formation. It6 has shown to improve memory, learning, and mental performance by dementia due to poor circulation.
Vitamin B6 or Pyridoxine - This vitamin is an important tool in ther function of the nervous system and in the controle of this function. It seem to help reduce unwanted exitation of the nervous system in children. It may therefore help against hyperexcitable children suffering from symptoms like misplaced aggresivity, instability, poor scholar attention, spasms and myoclony, The effect is best when combined with magnesium. Vitamin B6 is also a tool in the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin, an important transmittor substance. Deficiencies in vitamin B6 seem to be a cusative component with depression and anxiety.
Vitamin C - Ascorbic acid - Low levels of Vitamin C are found in those with Alzheimer's. Vitamin C levels may become depleted due to the extreme free radical damage. Any available supplies of Vitamin C are being used to fight off these free radicals and explains why there is a deficiency. In a long term study, 23 patients who were at risk for Alzheimer's were given daily dosages of Vitamin C. None of these subjects developed Alzheimer's.
Vitamin E -Vitamine E is an anti-oxidant that helps hinder damage done by Free radicals. This process may contribute to cellular degeneration in Alzheimer's. In a clinical study, results indicate that Vitamin E may slow down mental and psychological decline and lowering the risk of developing Alzheimer's.
Yohimbe -This African herb is used to increase the sexual potency of men. It also seem to help against depression and increase the potency of anti-depressive drugs. It can however easily cause anxiety and an unwanted cardiac stimulation and must be used very controlledly.
Zinc - Zinc is a working substance in the activities of the brain. Zinc
deficiencies seem to decrease cognitive functions and be a causing or
aggravating factor by ADD/ADHD. A supplemement of zink may therefore help some
