Can Flavonoids Treat Alzheimer’s disease?

Fresh Strawberries A recent study conducted from the Rashid Laboratory for Developmental Neurobiology at Silver Child Development Center at the University of South Florida is stating their findings regarding the antioxidants known as flavonoids and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. Published in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, an experiment using mice found that the two compounds within flavonoids, luteolin and diosmin have been shown to reduce the plaque build up on the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.

These two components of flavonoids have proved their ability to reduce the build up of beta-amyloid, which is what causes the plaque build-up on the brain of someone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The scientists within this study have been working diligently to find a natural way to reduce this build up and these flavonoids may prove to be the answer. These powerful antioxidants produce far less side effects than the drugs currently being developed to treat Alzheimer’s disease. This is only one of the many benefits that are turning the heads of medical professionals today.

The researchers involved in this study believe that flavonoids may be able to prevent and guard against Alzheimer’s disease. You can consume large amounts of flavonoids through your diet. Some of the foods include fruits, vegetables, seeds, wine and peanuts. The question that still remains within this research study is if this method of treatment will work on those with cognitive impairments. Other researchers and professionals have brought their attention to this new study to find that the flavonoids are targeting GSK3, which is an important factor within cognitive activity. With this in mind there is still a great deal of research to be done prior to using this form of treatment on humans but it offers high potential for a new avenue of natural treatments.

I have been talking about flavonoids for quite some time now. Flavonoids also hold many other healing benefits and properties when it comes to conditions that include inflammation of any kind. Foods high in flavonoids such as broccoli and strawberries can help reduce inflammation throughout the body. Flavonoids can also be taken advantage of through different medicinal herbs as many times flavonoids are the main component within herbs and their healing functions.

There is no end to the amount of health benefits and healing properties that can be obtained through flavonoids. The more modern science continues to research these benefits, the more likely we will be able to control the conditions and diseases within our society by protecting our own bodies that much more.
