Lewy body disease is a
kind of dementia
"In 1912, while Frederick Lewy was examining the brains of people with Parkinson's disease, he discovered irregularities in the cells in the mid-brain region. These abnormal structures (microscopic protein deposits found in deteriorating nerve cells) became known as Lewy bodies. Since that time, the presence of Lewy bodies in the mid-brain has been recognized as a hallmark of Parkinson's disease. In the 1960s, researchers found Lewy bodies in the cortex (the outer layer of gray matter) of the brains of some people who had dementia. Lewy bodies in the cortex are known as cortical Lewy bodies or diffuse Lewy bodies. (That's why Lewy body disease is sometimes called cortical Lewy body disease or diffuse Lewy body disease.) Cortical Lewy bodies were thought to be rare, until the 1980s when improved methodologies showed that Lewy body disease was more common than previously realized.
People with Lewy body disease have Lewy bodies in the mid-brain region (like those with Parkinson's disease) & in the cortex of the brain. It's believed that they usually also have the "plaques & tangles" of the brain that characterize Alzheimer's disease. Conversely, it's believed that many people with Alzheimer's disease also have cortical Lewy bodies. Because of the overlap, it's likely that many people with Lewy body disease are misdiagnosed (at least initially) as having either Parkinson's disease or Alzheimer's disease."

L-cysteine [2(RS)-D-ribo-(1′, 2′, 3′, 4′-Tetrahydroxybutyl)thiazolidine-4(R)-carboxylic acid (Ribose-Cysteine, RibCys)] @ http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1600-0773.1992.tb00472.x/abstract -
RiboCeine™ is the amino acid cysteine fused with the sugar ribose...
Cysteine itself is neurotoxic when administered to mammals, & is rapidly degraded. Dr Nagsawa spent years of research testing various compounds to find 1 which safely & effectively delivered the fragile cysteine molecule inside the cell, with the bonus effect of providing ribose for ATP production.
Liver cell tests show RibCeine™ is 300% more effective in raising glutathione levels than N-Acytl-Cysteine, which is used in MaxGXL Demand Release. We’ve all heard of time release vitamins (with toxic binders)...
MaxONE takes it to the next level with on-demand release.
The RiboCeine is absorbed into the cells where it waits. When the body needs to make more glutathione & separates it into the cysteine & ribose which are then used for glutathione & ATP production."

"The cognition of patients with Alzheimer's disease grew worse when they took either Detrol or Ditropan.
Both bladder drugs have what doctors call anti-cholinergic effects, which means they block the action of acetylcholine a neurotransmitter. Nerve cells release neurotransmitters to send signals to neighboring cells.
The anti-cholinergic medicines block some of these signals...The brains of the patients who had taken anti-cholinergic drugs for 2 years or longer had more that twice the level of abnormal clumps of amyloid plaque & tangled bundles of fibers as those who had not taken the drugs or had taken them for a such time...
Medication-induced dementia often reverses, if it is found & the patient stops taking the offending drug."
Pseudo-dementia means dementia is curable since the cause is not
senility. Anemia, mild strokes, depression, institutionalization,
nutrition lacking B vitamins or zinc, & drugs may cause confusion. Known
drugs causing confusion are psycho-actives (sedatives, tranquilizers,
lithium), anit-hypertensives (methyldopa, clonidine, beta-blockers),
anticonvulsants (phenytoin, barbiturates), anti-cholinergics (atropine,
antispasmodics), plus narcotics, steroids, digitalis, diuretics, anti-inflammatories,
