Studies shows vaping helps patients with mild cognitive impairment

What is mild cognitive impairment (MCI)?

Mild cognitive impairment lies within the middle ground of the anticipated cognitive decline that comes with normal aging and the more serious cognitive decline like dementia and Alzheimer’s. Mild cognitive impairment causes a problem with memory, thinking, and judgment, and these problems are experienced more seriously than with the normal and expected age-related cognitive changes.

People that are suffering from mild cognitive impairment are likely aware of the decline of their normal cognitive abilities, and these symptoms may also be visible to people close to them or spending a lot of time with them. In most cases of MCI, the symptoms are not severe enough in that they interfere with the person’s day-to-day activities. MCI can increase the risk of developing more serious cognitive disabilities such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurological-related conditions. Although, it is possible that people suffering from MCI don’t continue to decline, and in some cases, people have eventually gotten better.

The nicotine myth

Many people think that the enemy within the cigarette is the nicotine, but truly, the most dangerous components of the cigarette are the tar and harsh chemicals that are inhaled when smoking. This is why vaping is so much better than cigarettes, in that the components within an e-cig is not made up of the same tar and harsh chemicals that go into a normal tobacco cigarette. Nicotine is a natural alkaloid that is found in many plants, such as tomatoes, potatoes, and eggplants.

Nicotine may help patients suffering from mild cognitive impairment

Scientists have recently engaged in studies that have shown that nicotine may actually benefit patients that are suffering from MCI. And while a doctor or scientist would never recommend smoking a tobacco cigarette to someone as a means of medicinal use, scientists have found that the transferal of the nicotine itself may help. This is why vaping, a way to receive that small dose of nicotine could be one of the best ways to do just that.

So how does it work?

Nicotine increases the levels of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter that is necessary for our brain chemistry to boost attention and reward-seeking behaviors (hence the addictive component). But, dopamine also helps to control movement. There is an area of the brain that receives the nicotine, called the striatum, that with the stimulation of dopamine, the uncontrolled movement’s decline. This is one of the reasons why nicotine can positively affect different diseases that are neurologically related. Although the research for nicotine and its effect on neurological related diseases is still in the beginning stages, so far it has shown to be a positive correlation. Over time, scientists are only going to learn more about this phenomenon.
