Procyanidin-rich Foods like Chocolate or Apples may Benefit When Consumed Moderately

Procyanidin Rich Food Chocolate and Apple

Humans have evolved to live under mild stress. However, an abundance of food is causing ill effects like a higher risk of obesity, metabolic disorders, Alzheimer’s, and more. A new study found that B-type procyanidins present in some foods like cocoa and apple may induce a mild stress response called hermetic effect through the gut-brain […]

Researchers Think That Environmental Pollutants are a Significant Cause of Neurodegeneration

Environmental Pollutants Cause of Neurodegeneration

Summary: Neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s have increased significantly in the last few decades. Researchers think this rise cannot be explained solely based on genetics or population aging. It appears that environmental pollutants are playing a significant role in the rise of neurodegenerative disorders. Humans are now being regularly exposed to 80,000 chemicals, and […]

Inflammatory Proteins May Indicate A Lower Risk Of Cognitive Decline In Alzheimer’s

  Summary: Higher inflammation is associated with increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. However, new studies show that a high level of certain inflammatory markers may suggest a lesser chance of cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s. In the study, researchers enrolled adults with proven amyloid beta deposits but with more or less normal cognition. The […]

Whole blood Exchange May Help Manage Alzheimer’s

Whole Blood Exchange Help in Alzheimer’s Disease

Summary: The new study found that by whole blood exchange of a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease with the blood of normal, healthy mice, they significantly reduced the formation of amyloid plaques in the brain and improved memory. The exact mechanism is unclear, but the researchers suggest it may involve amyloid-beta mobilization from the brain […]

Genetic Connection Between Gut Issues And Alzheimer’s Disease Discovered

Genetic Connection Between Gut Issues And Alzheimer’s Disease Discovered

Summary: This study found a connection between Alzheimer’s disease and certain gastrointestinal issues such as acid reflux, stomach ulcers, and irritable bowel syndrome. It suggests that certain specific genes and biological processes may play a role in both Alzheimer’s disease and these GI problems. The study also highlighted that further research is needed to explore […]
