If one has ever seen an old 1990’s computer or even took a look at the inside of a current Apple MacBook laptop, they’ll notice a horde of wiring. Each wire controls something and is connected to the Central Processing Unit (CPU) which is the brain of a computer. These wires are similar to the nervous system of the human body. The nervous system is extremely complex in the way that it operates as a specialized network that activates the five senses, our gestures, and reaction time. If we think about what might happen if one wire within a computer malfunctions, normally the computer loses its ability to operate. Comparatively, if a component of the nervous system were to decline, a similar reaction would occur. An individual’s cognitive system is the source of all mental processes and arises from neural activity within the brain. If any area of the cognitive system begins to decline, this can cause a profusion of conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), neurological disorders, strokes, seizures, etc. When these occur, sometimes they can be difficult to treat, however at LifeWorks Wellness Center, we provide patients with the right supplements to help improve their cognitive functions. One peptide that we recommend is called Dihexa.
What is a Peptide?
Peptides are miniature versions of proteins made from amino acids. While some amino acids are produced naturally within the body, others are not, thus amino acids offer those necessary proteins that the body is lacking. Peptides can differ in usage from anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, strengthen immunity, or provide properties that induce muscle mass. Specifically, Dihexa hones in on an individual’s cognitive function and releases chemicals that the brain needs to stimulate the nervous system and improve memory.
What is Dihexa?
Dihexa is an oligopeptide drug that is derived from angiotensin IV to help control hypertension and improve cognitive functions in those who suffer from an assortment of neurological disorders. Angiotensin IV has also been shown to stimulate the release of the aldosterone hormone from the adrenal cortex to help support the kidney’s sodium retention. The peptide Dihexa was developed by researchers from Washington State University and was initially created to provide a treatment method to those who suffered with potential brain disorders. Vitality Sciences reports that this peptide is more potent than “the brain-derived neurotrophic factor¹.”
The Benefits of Dihexa
Since Dihexa has a strong purpose of enhancing cognitive functions, patients who suffer from neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s will feel the effects of this peptide kick in when they begin to notice improvement in their thinking abilities. The peptide has been useful in treating long term and short term memory, heart health, regulation of insulin, restoration of synapses between neurons in the nervous system, improvement of memory, management of depression, enhance problem solving skills, improves speech and communication, and increases mental stamina.
Treating Neurological Disorders at LifeWorks Wellness Center
At LifeWorks Wellness Center, our purpose is to focus on the main cause of all types of conditions including neurological functions. Disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other forms of dementia can cause distress among patients and families, especially when the memories of loved ones begin to deteriorate. What many are unaware of is the fact that these types of conditions are preventable as long as individuals manage their health correctly. Supplements such as Dihexa is a great step towards prevention and improvement of one’s cognitive system. Similar to how computers sometimes need to upgrade their CPU to function properly, humans sometimes need the proper peptides that will focus on enhancing their cognitive functions.
