α -lipoic acid: How a fatty acid treats Alzheimer’s!

By |2024-04-03T22:23:35+02:003. April 2024|Categories: antioxidants, forms of treatment, prevention, uncategorized|

α -Lipoic acid is a short-chain fatty acid that can be produced by the body itself as well as absorbed through food and dietary supplements. In addition to its role as a pro-energetic and antioxidant, it has a number of other positive effects in the body and, according to numerous studies, can counteract the progression of dementia diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Stress reduction pays off: breathing technique reduces Alzheimer’s biomarkers after a short time

Studies show a link between chronic stress and the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. A breathing technique could help reduce this risk by reducing stress and inducing changes in the brain that are associated with biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease.

Cold as prevention against cognitive decline

By |2023-12-18T12:57:33+01:0020. December 2023|Categories: forms of treatment|

The cold shock protein RBM3, which is increasingly produced in the cold, has shown neuroprotective properties in numerous cell culture and animal experiments. A study on mice by the University of Cambridge has now confirmed that RBM3 contributes to the protection of synapses and nerve cells. These findings could be of particular interest for dementia research and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Recent study shows: Antibody drugs for Alzheimer’s shrink the brain

By |2023-07-05T18:40:58+02:005. July 2023|Categories: causes, forms of treatment, medication|

An Australian study found that antibody drugs for Alzheimer's, such as aducanumab and lecanemab, can reduce brain volumes. Despite successful reduction of Alzheimer's-specific amyloid-beta deposits, the benefit of these drugs remains questionable. They slow cognitive decline only slightly and have severe side effects. The study also suggests that these drugs promote the cardinal structural symptom of Alzheimer's disease, brain atrophy. Thus, they increase the risk of brain tissue loss, a direct cause of cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease.

New Theory in dementia research: could fructose trigger Alzheimer’s?

By |2023-04-18T14:36:18+02:0019. April 2023|Categories: causes, nutrition, prevention|Tags: , |

The fact that fructose hardly raises blood glucose levels due to its low glycemic index and is largely metabolized independently of insulin has led to the assumption in the past that it has a beneficial effect on health. New studies prove that fructose is less beneficial than previously thought.

Highly processed foods and neuronal health: is there also a link with other neurodegenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis?
