Can amino acids help children with traumatic brain injury?
Specifically, the mice were given three BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) in their drinking water. As a result, the BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) contributed to the restoration of the mice's cognitive abilities. Reports neuroscientist Dr. Akiva S. Cohen, "dietary intervention" can "improve cognitive performance" while restoring a "proper balance of neurochemicals" in the part of the brain that is injured, based on the results of the study. Earlier studies conducted on humans give credibility to the recent report: people with severe brain injuries who received BCAAs intravenously showed mild improvement.
