• Cocoa extract that fights off Alzheimer’s disease

    cacao1A unique process of cocoa-extraction called Lavado may save you from a cognitive illness, this particular element extracted from cocoa can reduce the damage to nerve pathways seen in patients that have Alzheimer’s disease, it can prevent the illness long before they develop any symptoms. An experiment made by some students using mice genetically engineered to imitate Alzheimer’s disease in its nature. They come up with a result and suggested that Lavado cocoa extract prevents the protein ?-amyloid- (A?) from slowly forming sticky clumps in the brain, which causes damage to the nerve cells as Alzheimer’s disease worsens.
    This is how it was explained, the brain of a person with Alzheimer’s, a protein called beta-amyloid increase in the gaps that exist between nerve cells, which troubles the flow of signals between them and as a result the person will have problems and will only get worse as it is irreversible. It is believed that cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease is perceived to start years before symptoms actually surface. The lavado extract is abundantly made up of a type of antioxidant called “polyphenols,” which can also be also found in different fruits and vegetables.

    Lavado cocoa is primarily composed of polyphenols, antioxidants also found in fruits and vegetables, with past studies suggesting that they prevent degenerative diseases of the brain.
    The Mount Sinai study results revolve around synapses, the gaps between nerve cells. Within healthy nerve pathways, each nerve cell sends an electric pulse down itself until it reaches a synapse where it triggers the release of chemicals called neurotransmitters that float across the gap and cause the downstream nerve cell to “fire” and pass on the message.
    The disease-causing formation of A? oligomers – groups of molecules loosely attracted to each other –build up around synapses. The theory is that these sticky clumps physically interfere with synaptic structures and disrupt mechanisms that maintain memory circuits' fitness. In addition, A? triggers immune inflammatory responses, like an infection, bringing an on a rush of chemicals and cells meant to destroy invaders but that damage our own cells …

    If Alzheimer's disease can actually be prevented, then this is good news for folks who look forward to stay mentally healthy in the years to come, even in their old years. Life are meant to be enjoyed, our lifespan suggest that while we still have a heartbeat, we should enjoy it.
