A Review of Acetylcholine

A Review of Acetylcholine

This neurotransmitter is affected by Avipaxin and Daxitrol


Every part of our body has their own sets of function. Be it as large as our skin or as microscopic as the cells in our body, all parts act to keep the body in balance and in full function. The brain is one of the most complex parts of the human body, and for it to function as efficiently as it should neurotransmitters, receptors, nerves and neurons need to work hand in hand.


Acetylcholine is the first neurotransmitter to ever be discovered since it was isolated by Otto Loewi in 1921. Taking it in simpler terms, a neurotransmitter is a substance produced by the body which acts as a signaling molecule in the brain which crosses synapses or gaps between cells. Acetylcholine as a neurotransmitter functions, for one it is responsible for the stimulation of muscles. It is also critical for the memory function of the brain. Acetylcholine may also be found in the sensory neurons and is some what responsible in scheduling our dreams. This neurotransmitter is located in both the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS).

The link between decreasing levels of acetylcholine and Alzheimer's disease has been established due to the purpose of acetylcholine with regards to memory and Alzheimer's being a disease related to loss of memory. It has been seen that there is about 90% loss of acetylcholine in the brains of those suffering from the disorder.

Good thing to know is that acetylcholine may be increased in our brains. For one, Vitamin E can increase the ability of cells to produce acetylcholine. Whole grain products, such as unrefined wheat and rice contain both E and B vitamins which help maintain enzyme systems to produce acetylcholine. So as early as now, men should start taking good care of their brains to make memories last a lifetime.
