A new bidirectional randomised study establishes a causal relationship between lower levels of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD), utilising a large-scale genetic database.
A new review led by the University of Queensland prompts further research into capsaicin —a molecule derived from red chili peppers—for the prevention of cognitive decline in the aging and obese. It highlights a particular ingredient as a potentially...
Cinnamon and its bioactive compounds may support brain function and slow cognitive impairment associated with neurodegenerative diseases, suggests a new review published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience.
A new study has found that a formula containing omega-3s, carotenoids and vitamin E had a significant positive effect on measures of cognitive decline among an older cohort suffering from milder Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study has found that higher levels of DHA can lower the overall risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, which the authors say could potentially help save billions of dollars in health care costs.
A Nestlé-produced ketogenic (kMCT) drink could improve cognitive function in individuals suffering from Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), the firm's study suggests, as the product is set to be launched in Europe by the end of the year.
Supplementation with a drink containing 2000 mg of omega-3 and mixed botanicals could have ‘significant’ immune and biochemical effects in people that have minor cognitive impairment (MCI), new research suggests.
Supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids could help to prevent and even reverse the progression of Alzheimer’s disease by stimulating newly identified ‘resolution pathways’, according to research outlining an ‘entirely new’ approach to the condition.
The patent granted on Perceptiv, a cognitive support dietary supplement, is a vindication of the approach taken on developing the product, one of the researchers says. From the start the team worked on a finished, fixed formulation and painstakingly...
A research team led by Tom Shea, PhD, from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell will present new research on a nutraceutical formulation at an upcoming scientific meeting that shows positive effects on cognitive performance and mood among participants...
Scientists at the forefront of research into Alzheimer’s disease are about to embark on two human studies examining the role curcumin and Indian gooseberry could play in tackling beta amyloid, the neural plaque associated with its progression.
The authors of a recent study into curcumin bioavailability have rejected claims by a cancer researcher that “fuzzy math” led them to overestimate the absorption of the anti-inflammatory agent curcumin from some supplement formulations.
The jellyfish protein apoaequorin improves cognitive function in people with memory problems, according to interim data from a randomized controlled trial commissioned by Quincy BioScience which recently announced a successful application for patent protection.
Martek is set to give greater focus to DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) products targeted at older adults after a study published this week confirmed the brain health benefits of DHA consumption for that segment of the population.
Eating a diet rich in blueberries may reduce the severity of
neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's or cognitive
disorders relating to ageing, if results from an animal study can
be translated into humans.
Curcumin, found extensively in curries, could boost the body's
ability to clear the build up of plaques in the brain that are
linked to Alzheimer's disease, suggest results from a small
laboratory study from the US.
A Mount Sinai School of Medicine study found giving mice with
amyloid plaques red wine slows their memory loss and brain cell
death - adding to a body of science linking compounds in the
beverage to slowing the Alzheimer's disease-related...
