What impairs the cogitive functions during aging

The most common factors that impair the cognitive function during aging are not related to an aging process as such, but to bad habits of the elderly person or to bad conditions that the society forces elderly persons into.

One of these factors is faulty or deficient nutrition. Elderly people often get too little minerals and vitamins, they often have a high percentage of bad fat and of sugar in their diet and their diet often contains too little protein.

Another factor is lack of mental exercise and still another is lack of physical exercise. Elderly persons which are not formally employed any longer, often lack the incitement to keep an active life physically and mentally, with the result that the brain do not get enough stimuli to keep itself sharp.

There is however also a physiological aging process. This process has both intrisic causes, and extarnal causes, and is also accelerated by bad nutrition and lack of exercise. Here are some facts about the physiological brain aging:

The brain cells have little capasity of dividing and restoring lost cells. For a long time scientists thought that the brain nerve cells had no such capasity. This has been proven to be wrong, but the divisjon process in brain cells is slow. Therefore the brain tend to loose cells as one ages.

The cells dividing and replacing lost brain cells are not mature brain cells, but stem-cells found throughout the brain. Those can divide and mature to new brain cells.

However, the brain has a great surplus of cells from the beginning, and each brain cell has a great capasity of growing new connections and those connections can also replace the function of lost cells.

Brain cells die out without any external reason. But free radicals can destroy brain cells directly.

Free radicals are groups of atoms with an odd number of electrons. Free radical form from chemical reactions within the brain tissue. Some of these reactions are unavoidable because they are a part of the life processes, others are cauced by poisons. Once free radicals begin to form, they set off a chain reaction which can result in damage to DNA in brain cells by stealing electrons from the DNA molecules, and the cell is then injured or killed.

Anothe cause of brain cell death and brain function destruction is Altzheimer's disease.

Vitamins, minerals and other natural substances function as anti-oxydants by allowing the free radicals to react with themselves insted of reactingwith the brain cell components. Lack of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients will therefore accelerate the destruction or damage of brain cells, and impair the thinking and memory process.

Vitamins, minerals and other nutriens are also  important working substances in the brain. Therefore lack of these nutrients will also impair the brain function directly, even if no brain cells were destroyed.

Lecitine, a sort of fat substance, is a very important building block in the brain cell membranes, and the isolation substance between brain cells. Lecithine also contains ingredients used as signal substances in the brain processes. Lack of lecitine will therefore seriously impair brain function.

How to protect the brain from aging

Vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids are all nutrients important for the brain function, for the defence against brain structure destruction and for the repair processes in the brain. Anti-oxidants of other chemical nature found in all kind of fruit and vegatables, and especially in colored fruits and berries are also very useful for the protection of the brain.

Lecitine, a sort of fat substance, is a very important building block in the brain cell membranes, and the isolation substance between brain cells. Lecithine also contains ingredients used as signal substances in the brain processes. Lack of lecitine will therefore seriously impair brain function.

Another important way of protecting the brain is by using it to learn new tings and solve problems each day. These activities directly stimulate the growth of new connections between the brain cells and repair processes.

By means of these measures, it is possible to make the brain more effective as one grows old, instead of less effective.

About the herb genus bacopa

Bacopa is a genus of aquatic plants. They are annuals or perennials. The leaves are opposite of each other. Stem is hairy or smooth. The flowers are single or in couples, and have five petals. They are usually white, blue or purple in color.

The full botannical classification of bacopa is: Kingdom: Plantae, Angiosperms, Eudicots, Asterids, Order: Lamiales, Family: Plantaginaceae, Genus: Bacopa

Bacopa monnieri is important in Ayurvedic medicine, and has been used for thousands of years, particularly in India.

Some species are regarded as weeds. Some species are widespreadly used in freah water aquariums, and in decorative ponds in warmer climates. Most of them are easy to cultivate, but are slowly growing, and requires moderate to bright light. They can thrive in most water qualities. Bacopa caroliniana can tolerate brackish water.


Medical uses

Mostly the species Bacopa monnieri is used for medical purposes.Some of the active constituents are alkaloids, saponiner and flavonoids. It also contains betulinic acid, stigmastarol, beta-sitosterol and bacopasaponins.

Bacopa has the ability to enhance cognitive brain functions. It increases the ablity to concentrate on subjects. It improves the process of memorizing and it hleps persons to learn faster and better.

The herb has antioxydant effects and thus may help against tissue damage and degeneration of various kind.

The her may give effects against cancer

Bacopa reverse diazepam-induced.


The specific effects of some of the constituents in bacopa

Bacosides A are a group of saponins found in bacopa. They Enhance the body’s antioxidant defenses. It iincreases the anti-oxidant activities in the body of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione peroxidase (GPX).

Baconsides A also protect  the structure and function of the mitochondrial membranes by inhibiting excessive lipid peroxidation & creatine kinase, by  improving the activities of ATPases, and by maintaining the ionic equilibrium.)(PMID 16050806) They also protect gastrointestinal health by raising mucosal defensive factors.

Bacopasaponin C has an inhibitory effect against parasites, especially anti-leishmanial properties.

B. monnieri has a demonstrated ability to reverse diazepam-induced amnesia in the Morris water maze test. The mechanism of this action is unknown.

Iodine- Studies are showing that children with iodine deficiencies are struggling in school whereas children with normal iodine levels are performing better in spelling and reading. (1)

Zinc- Zinc is a trace metal that is prevalent in the brain. It appears that a zinc deficiency may result in decreased neurologic functioning, activity, which therefore would interfere with cognitive function. (2)

Acetyl L-Carnitine HCI- Research suggests that acetylcholine may improve the functioning of the cells in your brain. (3)

Methylcobalamin- A type of Vitamin B12 that may be helpful for nerve fibers and regenerating damaged neurons.

Phosphatidylserine- By supporting the structure of the brain, Phosphatidylserine may be able to improve memory, learning, mood, and concentration in those with decreased cognitive function. (4, 5, 6)

Choline- Choline is helpful for making acetylcholine, which is the brain chemical that is involved with memory and thought processes.

Gingko Biloba- Can act as a tonic to the circulatory system by increasing blood flow to the brain, which brings more nutrition to the brain. (7)

Bacopa Ext.- Has been used since the 6th century A.D. by India as a medicine to improve cognitive function and help with the nervous system. Has be reported to be effective for enhancing memory, improving brain function, and also improving mental performance.
Cyntol Contains: 5mg

Korean Ginseng Ext.- The main ingredients in Ginseng are ginsenosides, which are thought to work in the brain to help increase the release of the hormone ACTH. This helps regulate and ease stress. (8, 9) It has also been reported to help with learning disabilities and improve stamina.

Vinpocetine- Has been reported to improve brain circulation and oxygenation, helps the brain when there is a lack of oxygen, and slows down clot formation. (10)

Huperzine A Ext.- Has been shown to be beneficial to memory and learning. (11, 12)
Cyntol Contains: 50mcg

Lecithin- Research suggests that lecithin may improve symptoms of Alzheimer's. (13)

About doctors and health care worker's goals and attitudes against their patients and their interactions to fulfill these goals

The primary goal of the doctors's work is to help their patients as best as possible. This goal is probably a main drive for the interaction netween the doctor and other health workers and their patients. Nevertheless, an overt or hidden conflict between the goals of the patient and the doctor may still exist in many cases. The psychological and social drive for this conflct are of different kinds.

Sometimes doctors have a morally legitimate reason for having other objectives than their patients, and sometimes not. In either case the doctors or other health care workers use a large set of psychological, administrative and social manipulations and modes of interactions to fulfill their goals.

What will be said about "doctors" in the following also holds for other health care workers. Here are some of these conflict motives listed:

- The doctor wants to earn as much money as possible in the possibly shortest time.

- The doctor has echonomical goals imposed from his employer or from the society.

- The society has given the doctor a task of being an instance for surveillance of the population, and that mean of the patiant and his family.

- Authorities has given the doctor a concrete task of controlling a patients behaviour or dispositions.

- Authorities has given the doctor a concrete task of hindering a patient in spreading contagious diseases.

- The doctor believe the patient has other motives that those he explicitly explain. Sometimes this suspicion is right, sometimes not. Sometimes the patient have a moral right to have hidden motives, sometimes his hidden motives are not good.

- The doctor is tired or sick himself and therefore seeks to have as ligh work burden as possible.

- The doctor has to hinder being overloaded with work from one patient in orter to have time for other patients or in order to get tired out himself.

- The doctor is allready stressed or over-loaded and unable to to his work properly.

- The doctor believs that the patient hide symptoms to avoid a diagnosis and thereby avoid unpleacent treatment or restrictions on his life style.

- The doctor has other, and possible less ambitous goals with the treatment than the patient.

- The patient is unsatisfied with the treatment or other aspects of the patient handling, and the doctor seek to remend this situation.

- The patient is about to break the treatment or the relationship with the doctor, and the doctor seks to avoid this.

- The doctor wants to give up treatment when the patient want to continue.

- The doctor wants to hinder the patient seeking althernative treatment.

- The doctor simply dislike the patient.

Manipulations and interactions for fulfilling goals other than those of the patients, are of various kinds. The methods listed in the following may be legitimate to use in some cases, and in other cases used without a morally or legitimate reason.

- Being polite and using a friendly tone is actually the most used method. Even though this is basically something good, it nevertheless creates an athmosphere of positive attitude and trust that brings down healthy scheptisism by the patient, and that the doctor can use to fulfill goals other than those explicitly asked for by the patient.

- Having an authoritative tone is another way of manipulation. Some kind of abrupt authoritative speech combined with the same kind of gestures simply make many people lame and afraid of opposing anything.

- Some health care workers are very skilled in showing a friendly tone together with an authoritative attitude, a combination that is very effective towards some patients.

- Using sedatives or general anesthesia are sometimes used to make a patient cooperative and to hide things from the patient. Usually the doctor will give pain relief and comfort as the motive for using anesthesia, and these motives usually are a part of the reason. But having a pationt that is easy to manipulate is often a covert goal, and often heavy anesthesia is used for this reason where simpler form of anesthesia would be better.

- Using word magic, that is using words with a positive sense in cases where the doctor intend to do something the patient will tend not to axept in the first place, is so common that healt care workers do it nearly constantly during the whole day.

- Health care workers often do something so quickly that it is nearly finished before the patient is able to react or even understands what is going on.

- In order to come their way with a scheptical patient, doctors often try to make alliances with the patient's fanily or friends.

- Sometime the doctor have the patient or their family to  sign on contracts that give the doctor permission to take important decicions on their own, for example when the patient is under sedation or general anesthesia.

- Direct physical constraint and force is sometimes used, not only in psychiatric wards, but also sometimes in somatic ones. When the doctor have exhausted other means, and still do not get their way with the patient, some doctors are not able to axcept the decicion of the patient, and take to direct physical constraints and force. The use of physical force and constraints is actually a regular method thought in nursing curricula and there are actually specific routines for this method in most hospitals.

- Sometimes the doctor seek to classify the patient as psychologically unstable, unable to understand his own needs, dangerous for himself and others or dementic, and this way get the allowance to use constraints or physical forse to treat the patient as they wish. This classification may in some cases be right, in other cases such clasifications are misused.

In the medical litterature and the medical education, ways of interaction with the patient, so that the doctor can fulfill his goals with the patient, is given a considerable weight. There are tons of litterature about psychological and administrative manipulation of the patient, and about avoiding the patient manipulating the doctor. Here is a table with bibliographical data about medical litterature dealing with such topics, just to show the ways the medical community think about doctor-patient interaction and patient handling.
