A recent study showed that this oxidative stress increases inflammation, which “switches off” the expression of the peptide NaKtide in fat cells (adipocytes), causing systemic inflammation through the signaling Na,K-ATPase pathway. This leads to changes in the […]
A recent study found that an oxidation-antioxidant imbalance in the blood is an early indicator of Alzheimer’s. The study showed that oxidative markers, known to be involved in Alzheimer’s disease, are increased up to 5 years before the onset of the disease in people with the APOE4 gene.
