Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

Dementia (old age)

Senile dementia , Czech old age , is traditionally associated with old age . However, it must be noted that the minds of old people are slowing down from all systems at a slower pace. The brain of healthy seniors behaves functionally as well as if not younger. The working capacity and experience of older people are often above average. Old age is not weakness, but wisdom. The joining of old age with weakness is due to the existence of Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease - common diseases of old men.

Ginseng protects against old dementia

The protection against brain dysfunction, which ginseng provides to some extent, is related to its neuroprotective effect . However, there are also studies specifically targeting the effect of ginseng against mental retardation of mental functions with increasing age . For example, according to Zhao2009lga , senile mice (mice aged 12 months) who used ginsenoses (a mixture of ginsenoside 100 mg / kg / day in drinking water) for 8 months, almost eliminated the negative effects of aging Memory for memory tests. The ginsenoside mixture also prevented the reduction in the level of hippocampal proteins associated with its memory function (NMDA R1, CaMKII, PKA-Cβ, CREB, BDNF) in the old mice and maintained their level at the level corresponding to healthy adults. Important, of course, is its direct effects on Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease .
