Maple and Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a devastating condition that affects one in six people aged over 80 in the UK, so it’s great news when research suggests new ways of preventing it.

Dr Donald Weaver, from the Krembil Research Institute of the University of Toronto, recently revealed research findings at the 2016 American Chemical Society annual meeting.  The research found that an extract of maple syrup may help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

When two types of protein cells found in braincells fold improperly and clump together, they accumulate and create a plaque that causes the condition. The maple extract’s neuroprotective quality comes from the fact it prevents protein cells from breaking down and creating that plaque.

This story was covered by a number of national newspapers and magazines last week, including The Telegraph, MailOnline, The Daily Mirror and The SpectatorClick on the links to access the articles.
