Researchers found that a compound from Aloe vera could reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and even increase cognition scores.
Forty-six percent of the study participants experienced improvements in their cognition. Also, several inflammatory factors were reduced in the participants. These factors paired with reduced cytokines are related to a reduction in neuro-inflammation which could trigger Alzheimer’s disease and/or it’s symptoms.
Best of all, unlike Big Pharma solutions, the Aloe product didn’t have side effects.
Alzheimer’s disease affects an estimated 5 million Americans. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the country and one-in-three seniors will die while suffering from the disease. Generally, Alzheimer’s treatment is limited to popping Big Pharma solutions that may or may not alleviate the anxiety and stressors of the disease, without actually changing the condition itself. But a new study indicates a solution could be as close as your potted aloe plant.
“The gel of the Aloe leaf and its other plant parts contain many constituents outside of those tested in these studies, including quercetin, luteolin, apigenin, kaempferol, isoorientin, isovitexin, saponarin, lutonarin, chlorogenic acid, pectic acid, caffeic acid, 5-P-coumaroylquinic acid, caffeoylshikimic acid, feruloylquinic acid, coumaric acid, ferulic acid, as well as glycosylchromone aloeresin B, and aloin, which is a precursor to Aloe-emodin (the compound tested in the skin cancer study).”
