A recent small study investigated whether cranberries due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, could reduce age-related cognitive decline, ending up with dementia.
It’s not news any more that our brain (the central nervous system) and our gut (the enteric nervous system) are connected. Just think about those migraine attacks that are caused by some food sensitivities, or about headaches and even black-outs after too much alcohol. And these are only 2 of numerous other examples that show […]
Researchers of a recent study have found that niacin (also known as vitamin B3) slows down the progression of Alzheimers in a mouse model. Niacin seems to change microglia response to amyloid plaques.
A food pathogen, Listeria monocytogenes, causes a severe illness (listeriosis) that can infect our central nervous system (neurolisteriosis). This infection is fatal in 30% of all cases! The question is: how can Listeria monocytogenes escape from our immune system defense and get into the most protected area of our body, our brain?
