Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
A few thoughts.
First of all, much of what you see on TV is bunk. It's not science.
that is why I subscribe to JA
That's not to say there aren't things that the brain needs, but supplements and 'cleansers' are snake oil for the most part.
stand by for a reference
scientists do agree that anti-oxidants that are in many fruits and vegetables are important for brain health
but as to a product that can do this you would do better to eat a healthy diet
THIS IS A GOOD LINK FOR THIS INFORMATION
WEB MD is a pretty good source, as is the Mayo clinic site
if you do choose to use vitamin supplements there is some evidence that vitamin E helps to maintain proper brain function
but you CAN take to much vitamin e, so if you choose to do this only take the recommended doses
the show had doctors referring to experiments on rats at this point.
vitamin C is touted by some but the studies as to it's benefit are inconclusive at best
that's generally where we start... rats or mice
fox new sunday morning. are youy familiar with the doctors segment?
and then it takes YEARS to bring any promising treatment to humans as we aren't the same
no sir, I am not, but I can probably find it
it IS true that sleep is crucial to proper brain function, but this is not news
if you have a sleep issue where you are awakening early
doctors typically will try melatonin, a natrual body chemical in pill form, which does seem to help some people get better sleep
it is over the counter
i see the entire article now
I dont want any sleep meds with contain gaba.
melatonin does not contain gaba
dr sammati and the other doctor
I have a high hemoglobin account...in short I understand help me recover faster.
have you spoken with your doctor about your sleep issues?
A doctor said athletes blood.
it is a known fact that sleep deprivation, if prolonged, can lead to depression, and can bring out seizures in people who are predisposed to them.
that's very good
I dont consider it an issue. I am more health than many my age. I dont take any pills drugs....etc.
it's good that you don't take unnecessary meds
here's the story from FOX
I avoid at all cost. I look to change life style or eating certain foods when possible.
then that Web MD link about healthy eating for your brain will be an excellent resource for you
This is a differant than what I swa with dr samati and the other guy around 10 am every sunday morning.
I'm not sure how I can help you sir?
you asked about proper brain function and if there were any foods or things you could take to help with brain health
and the Web MD article is very good for that
ok. I will do further search on those links as well. thanks.
you are most welcome
You answered ans well as referred me to documented information.
the fox article links to a science today or scientific american article
sounds like you are in good health
and that's great
and that you are in Th process of maintining it and that's even better
I looked to see if I can find it give me a few more seconds, take car of other chatters I will be right back.
I got it. http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/americas-news-hq/sunday-housecall#http://video.foxnews.com/v/2756893610001/brains-waste-removal-system-more-active-during-sleep/?playlist_id=86895
it is a video
let me see if i can open it on my work computer
watching it now
dang computer is so slow...
dr seigal is the other dr
so this is not surprising and has seems to be merely a better explanation than we had previously of why sleep is so critical
the lymphatic system is more active during sleep and helps to remove waste products of brain activity
and provide a decrease in anxiety and worry and depressive symtpoms
yes. brain cleaners is not a real medical term but it is what they used to explain it.
what is your question about this new research?
well they mentioned no alcohol as a inhibitor that will prevent these cleaners to work more effectivly, i was looking for some food, vitamin or safe drug that will help the chemical that they call brain cleaner.
again, the web MD article has a good list there
in general, is a bad thing as it interrupts sleep
most people do not realize that alchol for the first few hours is a depresant... encourages sleep
I dont drink
but it's metabolic products then inhibit healthy sleep
good, glad you don't drink
fresh fruits and berries and, perhaps a small supplement of vitamin E should be what you are looking for
I sometimes take nyquiil if I have stuffy nose...it gives me a longer sleep time. But that is getting away from this question. I was looking for something that will help the 'brain cleaner" chemicals .
I'm sorry, there is no scientifically proven product such as this
At night before sleep time? I would think fruits with sugar would be counter to sleep.
straight sugar might be a bad idea, but the fructose in fruits and vegetables would be fine
and a healthy protein source like chicken or fish would be good as this will keep you from waking up hungry in the middle of the night
ok. I an satisfied with the answers you gave. I hope the ino I gave you was helpful as well.
thanks for your question
and if this has been helpful please do leave positive feedback
and ask for me anytoime
happy to be of service
as mentioned I just started cutting out dinner substituting the ensure nutrional drink. less work digesting food at night may also aid in sleeping and the brain cleaners.
not a bad idea at all
Ok...thanks a lot. Have a great day and week. bye.
