New Chemical Found in Red Wine, EGCG, Could Play Role In Fighting Alzheimer's

I'm pretty excited to read about a newly discovered chemical in red wine that COULD help stave off Alzheimer's! While it is still testing in a lab, the results are very promising for an as of yet incurable and fast increasing, traumatizing disease. This newly discovered chemical is called EGCG and is also found in Green Tea, one of my other favorite healthy beverages. Drink up!

EGCG, In Green Tea & Red Wine, Could Help Fight Alzheimer's

A new study in the Journal of Biological Chemistry shows that an antioxidant called EGCG, which is found in green tea and red wine, is able to stop amyloid-beta proteins -- known to play a role in Alzheimer's -- from attaching to and killing brain cells in a lab setting. The study is based on the notion that amyloid proteins form ball-like clumps, which are not uniform in size. These amyloid clumps then bind to the outer proteins of brain cells and kill them. However, the researchers wanted to see if changing the shape of the amyloid clumps -- by applying EGCG-- altered their ability to bind to the brain cells. Sure enough, they found that the EGCG could change the shape of the amyloid proteins. And because of that, the amyloid proteins no longer bound to the cells.

...These findings are released at the same time as another study in the journal Neurology, showing that the number of people with Alzheimer's could triple by 2050, MyHealthNewsDaily reported. "It will place a huge burden on society, disabling more people who develop the disease, challenging their caregivers and straining medical and social safety nets," study researcher Jennifer Weuve, who is an assistant professor of medicine at Rush Institute for Healthy Aging, told MyHealthNewsDaily.  

There is currently no cure for Alzheimer's, though there are some medications that can help to stave off the thinking problems associated with the disease, including cholinesterase inhibitors and memantine, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Has it ever happened that you simply desperately wanted to download The Lincoln Lawyer but could not do so as you were left confused by the contradictory reviews you heard or read about the full movie The Lincoln Lawyer? While some said that the movie The Lincoln Lawyer was quite good and worth watching, others felt that it was a total waste of time and dollars.

Choosing the right kind of hotel insurance matters as the occurrence of fire mishaps or any other accidents cannot be guessed. The sudden growth of hotel industry has led to the consideration of insuring hotels by their owners in a serious manner. Any such insurance reflects the needs of the present situation.

You can say that it is the source of funding backed up with the private firms. In this process, the fund of the receiver is termed as borrower and the source from which the money is coming is referred as hard private money lenders.
