Cognition is the process of the brain associated with the attention of working memory, producing and comprehending language, learning, reasoning, problem-solving, and decision making.
Cognitive impairment is the condition, affecting a person's thinking, communication, understanding or memory. Cognitive impairment can be acute or chronic.
Acute cognitive impairment is a short-term health problem caused by delirium, an acutely disturbed state of mind due to drugs (toxicity and withdrawal), electrolyte disturbance, lack of drugs, liver disease, infection, reduced sensory input, intracranial urinary retention/fecal impaction or m Myocardial/metabolic/pulmonary.
Chronic cognitive impairment is a permanent medical condition associated with problems of language, ideomotor and constructive praxis, visual gnosis, spatial attention, learning abilities, and executive functions.
According to the statistic provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 16 million people in the United States are living with cognitive impairment and these numbers are increasing at an alarming rate.
Sadly, the CDC continued, "An estimated 5.1 million Americans aged 65 years or older may currently have Alzheimer’s disease, the most well-known form of cognitive impairment; this number may rise to 13.2 million by 2050".
The causes of cognitive impairment are unknown. However, researchers suggested that aging, genetically mutated gene inherited from parents, such as Down's Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), autism, persistent mental health problems, together with unhealthy diet and lifestyle are associated with the onset of cognitive impairment.
On finding a potential phytochemical for the treatment of neurological diseases, researchers examined all plasma vitamin E forms on mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD).
* AD and MCI patients showed lower levels of total tocopherols, total tocotrienols, and total vitamin E, compared to cognitively normal subjects;
Intake of tocopherols in the form of supplements should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
