“Apple a day keeps diseases away” is still true when it comes to our aging brain.
Researchers suggest that apples and their different variations could help us to maintain our brain in a good health.
Let’s have a closer look on the compounds of apple which help us with that.
Studies have shown that phloridzin can actually slow down aging and extend lifespan by interacting with specific genes and pathways.
Of course, we shouldn’t forget about the polyphenols in apples. Because of them, apples help boost our memory and protect our neurons by reducing some harmful elements in our brain (NO and MDA) and boosting the beneficial ones (GSH).
And then there’s phloretin, another component that is great for our memory. In experiments with forgetful mice, it showed its ability to improve spatial memory (such as remembering locations) and increasing the levels of essential brain-related factors.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
Now, here’s a remarkable reveal: apple cider vinegar turned to be beneficial for our brain as well! It can help protect against memory loss, battles the effects of oxidative stress and keeps our neurons in a good condition. But here is even more: apple cider vinegar has shown some promising results in improving the neurotransmitter levels of the mouse models with Alzheimer’s.
