The twenty second intervention to reverse mild Alzheimer's in the Bredesen Protocol is:
- Goal: Increase Focus
- Approach: Pantothenic acid
- Rationale: Acetylcholine synthesis requirement
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) 150mg (helps with alertness). B5 is required to synthesize coenzyme-A (CoA), which is important in the biosynthesis of many important compounds such as fatty acids, cholesterol, and acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter.
Vitamin B5 may be important for elderly individuals who are starting to see signs of memory loss due to declining acetylcholine synthesis. It is possible that this vitamin may slow down the aging process in the brain and even prevent some of the damage associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
