The Amyloid theory is accepted to date as the major justification for the development of Alzheimer's disease and has guided the focus of research in this area. According to this theory, the formation of amyloid plaques, often also referred to as senile plaques, that is, abnormal deposits of the amyloid beta protein (Aβ) in the brain would be the direct cause for the symptoms of this type of dementia. This theory was born in the first description of the disease in 1907, when Alois Alzheimer found a large amount of those plaques distributed in the brain of his famous patient Auguste Deter, when examining her brain after her death. In 1984, Aβ was identified as the main component of the plaques.

The risk for developing the sporadic late-onset form of Alzheimer's disease is attributable to an interaction of genetic and environmental factors. Among the genetic factors, it is well known that the presence of the APOE4 gene considerably increases the risk of developing the disease. Among environmental risk factors, lifestyle measures (such as diet, sleep quality, physical activity, and mental training) and exposure to toxic agents  have great importance for prevention, since they can be modified both at the individual level and through collective health policies. Despite its relevance, the effect of exposure to toxins has not been properly studied: the number of articles published on this subject is limited, and occur mostly in journals on environment and toxins rather than in medical journals.

Recent clinical studies show: The naturally occurring polyamine spermidine protects our brain

By |2022-03-15T21:11:37+01:0016. March 2022|Categories: Causes, Forms of treatment, nutrition, plant substances, Prävention, prevention|

Spermidine, also known chemically as N-(3-aminopropyl) butane-1,4-diamine, is one of the naturally occurring polyamines. It occurs as a natural substance in amino acid metabolism of all living organisms and in all cells, and therefore also in a variety of plant and animal foods. Particularly rich food sources are wheat germ, but hard cheese, dried soybeans and some other foods also provide good amounts of spermidine. Recently, it was shown in mice that spermidine from food actually reaches the brain, thus crossing the blood-brain barrier.
