As I do have faith that one day my fathers Alzheimer's Disease will be treated one day. "Let go and let god" they say. We finally found something that treats alzheimer's and we have noticed much improvement. I was reading through research documents from www.smartdrugsforthought.com and found several profound medical documents and studies with the use of a cognitive and memory supplement, called Piracetam, in Alzheimer's patients.
Interested in memory enhancement, the pharmaceutical industry has naturally taken the route of trying to develop drugs to do the job, because as synthetic substances, they can be patented and profited from. It has researched the use of smart drugs for both Alzheimer's patients and for the much larger market of people suffering and that are victims from so-called Age-Associated Memory Decline(Alzheimer's Disease).
Two approaches have been adopted. The first is to create drugs which will slow down or block the
breakdown of neurotransmitters. In this group, the drug Piracetam has been widely researched and
found to have broadly beneficial effects and results on memory enhancement. The drug belongs to a drug group called nootropics, related to pyroglutamate, which is an amino acid.
-Piracetam increases Alertness (by an average of 50%) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.
-Piracetam alleviates Depression (by an average of 32%) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.
-Piracetam improves Memory (by an average of 45%) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.
-Piracetam alleviates the Paranoia that often occurs during the progression of Alzheimer's Disease.
-Piracetam alleviates Sleep Disorders in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.

(The authors note that impairment in the function of cholinergic neurons is responsible for some of the loss of mental function associated with Alzheimer’s disease. They refer to a study in which piracetam was found to increase the number of cholinergic receptors in the brain. It is inferred that this enhancement of cholinergic function may be the mechanism by which piracetam provides therapeutic benefits to Alzheimer’s disease patients.)
