Here’s how you can boost your dopamine levels naturally

When it comes to the brain’s chemical messengers (neurotransmitters), nothing compares to dopamine. A neurotransmitter that activates the brain’s pleasure and reward centers, dopamine plays an important role in stimulating motivation, mental energy and drive. Because of its effects on the brain’s pleasure centers, it’s not surprising that many unhealthy and even dangerous habits, such as drug use … Continue reading Here’s how you can boost your dopamine levels naturally

Propionic acid (PPA) in processed foods may be associated with autism spectrum disorder

A recent study has shed light on another possible cause of autism: processed foods. In their report, researchers from the University of Central Florida explored the possible role of the gut microbiome in developing autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a lifelong neurological and developmental disorder that begins in childhood. Published in Scientific Reports, their study revealed that exposing neural stem cells to high … Continue reading Propionic acid (PPA) in processed foods may be associated with autism spectrum disorder

Lowering homocysteine levels can decrease risk of heart attack, stroke and Alzheimer’s

Homocysteine is an amino acid produced when proteins are broken down. High homocysteine levels, called hyperhomocysteinemia, are known to increase disease risk. As a case in point, the condition is linked to heart attack, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. High homocysteine levels and cardiovascular disease Previous research has found that homocysteine can damage the endothelium, the tissue lining the blood vessels throughout … Continue reading Lowering homocysteine levels can decrease risk of heart attack, stroke and Alzheimer’s

Study: Trans fats linked to poor brain health and greater risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s

Trans fatty acids are the worst type of fats. Sometimes called “FrankenFats,” they’ve been linked to numerous diseases, ranging from cancer to heart disease to diabetes. They’re known to drive up cholesterol levels, contribute to insulin resistance and promote weight gain, among many other things. Recent studies also show that trans fats can harm your brain. In one study, which appeared in the … Continue reading Study: Trans fats linked to poor brain health and greater risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s

Musk mallow seeds can protect the brain against degeneration caused by fluoride toxicity

Abelmoschus moschatus, commonly known as musk mallow, is a flowering plant native to East Asia and Northern Australia. It belongs to the same genus as okra, a flowering plant whose seed pods are eaten as a vegetable. Musk mallow is a multipurpose plant: Besides being an ornamental, it is also cultivated as a source of food, … Continue reading Musk mallow seeds can protect the brain against degeneration caused by fluoride toxicity

Compounds from two Nigerian vegetables found to inhibit enzymes implicated in neurodegenerative diseases

Neurodegenerative disease is a term used for conditions that affect the function of neurons in the human brain. Unlike other cells in the body, neurons, or nerve cells, are incapable of cell reproduction. Once neurons are injured, degenerate or die, the body cannot replace them with new ones. This is why neurodegenerative diseases are debilitating and very difficult to … Continue reading Compounds from two Nigerian vegetables found to inhibit enzymes implicated in neurodegenerative diseases

Study explains how a chemical from Japanese cornel may help treat Alzheimer’s disease

Cornus officinalis, also known as Japanese cornel, is a medicinal plant native to China, Japan and South Korea. Well-known in traditional medicine, the fruit of this small tree, in particular, is used for its analgesic, diuretic and anti-diabetic properties. According to studies, the active components of Japanese cornel can inhibit the activity of a-glucosidase, the enzyme that breaks … Continue reading Study explains how a chemical from Japanese cornel may help treat Alzheimer’s disease

RNA Methylation Gives Epigenetic Clues to Strengthening Memory

Memory is a complex process, one that we have only just begun to understand. Research hints that it might be possible for histone modification to degrade memory if we don’t get enough sleep or that certain epigenetic anti-cancer drugs known as HDAC inhibitors could sharpen memory. RNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism that has been recently gained a lot of … Continue reading RNA Methylation Gives Epigenetic Clues to Strengthening Memory
