Reducing Caloric Intake Delays Nerve Cell Loss

Posted May 22, 2013

Activating an enzyme known to play a role in the anti-aging benefits of calorie restriction delays the loss of brain cells and preserves cognitive function in mice, according to a study published in the May 22 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience. The findings could one day guide researchers to discover drug alternatives that slow the progress of age-associated impairments in the brain.

Study finds alpha lipoic acid protects nerve tissue

Posted April 30, 2012

A recently published study regarding the role of Alpha Lipoic and premature death of neurons suggests that Alpha Lipoic confers a neuro-protective role upon neurons. Expanding on the benefits of R-Alpha Lipoic, Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that R-Alpha Lipoic is also a nutrient and its dietary supplementation increases the cellular leaves of glutathione, which growing number of studies are implicating its deficiency in the development and progression of many diseases such as Arthritis, COPD up to Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
