Poor brain circulation causes poor cognitive function (brain fog), fatigue, anxiety and even depression.
Decreased blood flow to the brain plays a major role in dementia, Alzheimer's and other brain disorders. When the brain becomes starved for oxygen and fuel, the result is low-grade "suffocation." (455)
The good news is that brain cells become more active when blood flow increases. (14,231,339,455)
Every day about 10,000 free radicals attack each cell in our body—and they damage anything and everything in the human cell.
Oxidative destruction is implicated in aging and degenerative diseases including cardiovascular, congestive failure, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer's and some liver and kidney diseases. (7,14,346-351,355,356)
You've likely heard about nitric oxide, the molecule that improves blood flow, energy levels, brain-speed and memory.
The most common advice is to take l-arginine to boost nitric oxide. But the problem is that taking too much arginine actually impairs nitric oxide production. Researchers call this the "Arginine Paradox." What's the problem?
The brain generates a tremendous amount of free radicals as a part of its daily functioning. Research shows that over the course of months and years, free radicals contribute to the impairment of healthy brain activity that occurs with aging.
Flavay® has demonstrated remarkable success in blocking the formation of senile plaques that severely damage the brains of those with dementia.
Most NSAIDs work by blocking COX-1 and COX-2. The problem is, our bodies need the two enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2, to function correctly.
When COX-1 is blocked, the side effects are ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding (and kidney damage) because our stomachs need the COX-1 enzyme.
Our vessels need COX-2 to protect against atherosclerosis (artery hardening), narrowing and clogging. Most COX-2 inhibitors have been removed from the market. The one that remains (Celebrex) has a black box warning that it carries a risk of heart attack and stroke.
