Pomegranate Husk Extracts Has the Effect of Anti Alzheimer
An important factor in Alzheimer’s disease is the formation of amyloid masses in the brain. In order to prevent this caking, a compound with a blood-brain barrier is needed to inhibit the production of clumps. Previous studies showed that pomegranate extract had an anti-Alzheimer effect but did not identify compounds that made it cross the blood-brain barrier. For this, a new study, published in the chemical neuro journal of the American Chemical Society, was designed to try to determine which compounds can pass through the blood-brain barrier.
The researchers isolated and identified 21 compounds from pomegranate husk extract, most of the polyphenols. Computer studies have found that polyphenols are unable to pass through the blood-brain barrier, but Urolithins is a kind of compound formed after the metabolism of some type of pomegranate polyphenols by microbes in the intestinal tract. In vitro studies have shown that Urolithins can not only enter the brain through the blood-brain barrier but also reduce protein caking. In addition, Urolithins can also increase the life span of the Ascaris model. The next step is to carry out the related human test.
Similar to pomegranate, walnuts also have potential neuroprotective potential. A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in early 2016 showed that nuts could delay the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease and even prevent it, according to the Grims media.
The polyphenol extract of pomegranate seed is a strong antioxidant, which helps to improve the elasticity and elasticity of the joints and strengthen the arteries, veins, and capillaries. Its inflammatory effects against arthritis and sports injuries have also been reported. Eye diseases such as sugar disease retinopathy and decreased vision can also benefit from it.
1. Enhancement of capillary vitality and enhancement of the capillary wall
2. Improve the smoothness and elasticity of the skin
3. Lighten the diabetic retinopathy and improve vision
4. Lessen varicose veins
5. Help improve brain function
6. Fight arthritis and have less risk of phlebitis.
