Ancient Ayurvedic Herb Boosts Memory and Multitasking, Reduces Stress

Ayurvedic Remedy Bacopa Improves Memory and Multitasking, Reduces Stress

While modern researchers scramble to create synthetic drugs to delay the onset of memory disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, a latent form of institutional dementia prevails: A purposeful forgetfulness and outright dismissal of ancient remedies for memory, stress and mood disorders

Bacopa monieri is an herbal medicine used for thousands of years in Ayurveda for a variety of mood-related, memory-related and cognitive-related disorders.

Are Mental Disorders the Result of Neuroinflammation?

Are Mental Disorders the Result of Neuroinflammation?

New research is increasingly finding that not only are many cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia related to inflammation among brain tissues, but classic mental diseases such as schizophrenia and depression may also be connected to brain inflammation.

Recent research from Japan's Kyushu University Medical School and Saga University have been revealing that many mental disorders are produced by inflammation involving the microglia cells of the brain.

B Vitamins Slow Alzheimer's and Grey Matter Loss

B Vitamins Slow Alzheimer's and Grey Matter Loss

Researchers from the University of Oxford have determined that B vitamin supplementation can slow and possibly reverse the progression of Alzheimer's symptoms along with cognitive impairment.

The researchers – from Oxford's Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences - conducted a clinical trial with 156 elderly patients who had mild cognitive impairment and a high risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The researchers randomized the patients and for two years, gave one group a daily supplement with 800 micrograms of folic acid, 20 milligrams of vitamin B6, and 500 micrograms of vitamin B12. They gave a placebo supplement to the control group.

Olive Constituent Blocks Alzheimer's and Breast Cancer

Olive Constituent Blocks Alzheimer's and Breast Cancer

Two recent studies have found that a constituent of olives and olive oil inhibits the growth of breast cancer and the development of Alzheimer's disease.

The breast cancer research comes from scientists at the King Saud University. The researchers treated human breast cancer cells with a constituent of olives known as Oleuropein. The testing found that Oleuropein produced genetic changes among breast cancer cells that serve to inhibit their ability to metastasize and grow throughout the body.

One of the two key genetic changes influenced by the Oleuropein was the inhibition of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzymes. These MMPs – specifically MMP2 and MMP9 - usher the process of metastasizing. The MMP enzymes were blocked, effectively inhibiting the spread of the cancer.

The Oleuropein extract also stimulated a genetic expression of the TIMP gene. When these genes are expressed, through a polymerase chain reaction, tumor growth is halted.

Everyone knows that eating vegetables has profound health benefits. But, like all foods, not all vegetables are created the same. Some are better than others in terms of nutritional content, and overall contribution to vibrant health. If you look more closely at their phytochemical [plant-based chemical] content, or the growing amount of research into their specific effects on the body and disease, a few vegetables appear to be downright “miracle” foods!

Turmeric (Curcumin) Shown to Possess a Powerful Anti-Aging Effect

Turmeric (Curcumin) Shown to Possess a Powerful Anti-Aging Effect

The latest, and most likely, program theory of aging is the telomere shortening theory. Telomeres are the end-cap segments of DNA (our genetic material). Each time a cell replicates, a small piece of DNA is taken off the end of each chromosome. The shorter the telomere gets, the more it affects gene expression. The result is cellular aging and an increased risk for immune dysfunction, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and other degenerative diseases.
