UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Japanese scientists have unveiled the “magic” potential of tea and carrots. They found that these two foods, together, were able to stop the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
According to a study by Japanese scientists, tea and carrot extracts not only halted the development of Alzheimer’s disease, but also restored the memory of rodents. The researchers published their findings in the journal Journal of Biological Chemistry.
“In just three months, we have been able to fully restore the functioning of the memory of the mice. In addition, do not wait for 10-12 years to develop a first drug based on these foods, you could have a positive result by changing your diet, “said Terrence Town, one members of the team.
It is believed that Alzheimer’s disease is caused by an accumulation of beta-amyloid protein, which is harmful to the central nervous system under certain circumstances. These harmful proteins are residues of the APP protein, which participates in the repair of neurons, as well as the creation of links between them.
Despite the fact that scientists have advanced the study of this disease in recent years, all experiments with different substances to compose a drug to fight against it have failed.
By observing the processes of scission of APP proteins, the researchers discovered a substance, alpha-secretase, that does not create harmful residues after the destruction of the protein.
Thus, the researchers are revealing elements that could favor the development. Recently, they revealed that EGCG, one of the main antioxidants found in tea and carrots , is capable of destroying APP in such a way that no harmful residues would result.
Early experiments have shown that EGCG was able to accelerate alpha-secretase production and, in addition, protect DNA. Mice that were fed with large amounts of this material showed positive results in stopping the development of Alzheimer’s disease and improving their memory.
In addition, according to scientists, a combination of tea and carrots yielded better results than these two foods separately.
