Alzheimer’s, Dementia & Plasmalogens

Alzheimer’s and Dementia are challenging topics to discuss and understand, because there are anatomical, genetic and biochemical variances along with several causes in their progression.

You just don’t wake up one day with these mental issues.  They develop over time, even years and decades.

Genes are not necessarily the cause but act as predispositions.

And besides, it is hopeless to change our genetics.  The genomic studies, of hacking the human genome during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with the hope of preventing various diseases, proved fruitless.

We came to the realization that the expression of our genetic code is influenced the external, by our behaviors, lifestyle and our exposure to the toxins in our surrounding environment.  Thus the study of epigenetics was born.

Brain Neurotransmitters

The topic of brain chemistry and neurotransmitters is extremely complicated, but the optimal transmission, the signalling from one nerve to the next, is facilitated by plasmalogens.

The most important research on plasmalogens has been conducted by Dr. Dayan Goodenowe, with a PhD in brain biochemistry.

One of his major contributions has been the development of  a state of the art mass spectrometer unit for quantitative measuring of plasmalogens and various lipids in the blood.

This blood test is called the Prodrome Scan.

The test measures approximately 100 biomarkers and can predict tendencies towards developing many chronic illnesses.

This is ideal for the physician and his or her client interested in preventative medicine as well as the ability to make specific nutritional and supplement recommendations for the recovery of health.

The role of how plasmalogens play a key role in our health may be one of the most important medical discoveries of the decade.

The second most important discovery or advancement is the ability to determine their levels in the human body through the Prodrome Scan.

The third is the ability to use a natural supplement to increase the levels of our plasmalogens.

We hope you are beginning to understand how plasmalogens can improve your mental health and to hopefully live the rest of your life with your full mental capacities.

Plasmalogen Research

Some people want to know the research behind plasmalogens and both dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Here is a summary of Dr. Goodenows’ paper published in 2007.

The serum samples of 324 dementia subjects were analyzed and compared with 68 cognitive normal subjects aged 50–90 years to investigate the relations between dementia severity and PlsEtns (Ethanolamine plasmalogens) levels.

209 healthy subjects aged 50–95 years were divided into 3 age groups and their serum were analyzed to determine the effect of age on PlsEtns levels.

Postmortem serum samples of subjects with AD and those without AD pathology were analyzed to compare the serum PlsEtns levels.

Serum from 50 clinically diagnosed AD subjects, who were later confirmed to have AD upon postmortem examination were analyzed to determine the DHA PlsEtns levels.

Serum samples of 80 Japanese AD subjects and 80 non-demented Japanese subjects living in Japan were analyzed to determine the effect of ethnic or environmental differences on serum DHA PlsEtns levels in AD.

Outcomes:  The levels of PlsEtns species were significantly reduced in all three groups of AD subjects, and the decrease was correlated with the severity of AD.

There was an increased mortality rate in Alzheimer’s Disease subjects associated with low PlsEtns.

Serum PlsEtns levels were significantly reduced in the postmortem (55%) AD subjects, and clinically diagnosed AD subject (47%).

This decrease was related to the severity of disease.

In Addition to Plasmalogens

Again, plasmalogens may be the most important medical discovery in the past few decades for Alzheimer’s and dementia, but we must not lose site of other underlying issues which promote mental and cognitive issues.

These are mentioned near the bottom of the home page, but here is a brief summary of the three primary causes of chronic disease.

Nutritional deficiencies since all cells require a wide variety of nutrients to function optimally.

Environmental chemicals and other toxins tax the body’s ability to maintain health.

Low-grade, systemic, chronic infections which go undiagnosed.  These include bacteria, viruses, mold and parasites.
