Scientists may have found a food whole plant in exerting neuroprotective effect, the renowned institute study suggested.

According to the MVP Samaj's College of Pharmacy, methinic extract of beet fed to experiment animal showed a significant effect in increased motor function at 200, and 300 mg/kg, in doses depending manner.

Neuroprotection is an action used to ensure the brain normal function against nerve cells damage, degeneration in inducing impairment.

Beet, best known as the beetroot or garden beet and belonging to the amaranth family, is a perennial plant with leafy stems growing to 1–2 m tall.

According to the MVP Samaj's College of Pharmacy, methinic extract of beet fed to experiment animal showed a significant effect in increased motor function at 200, and 300 mg/kg, in doses depending manner.

Oral administrated animal also showed a strong improvement of intensity of muscular rigidity, duration of catalepsy, akinesia, the number of tremors, locomotor activity and grip strength.

The efficacy of the extracted in contribution of brain health may be a result of present phytochemicals in restoring the defensive antioxidant enzymes in the brain against level of lipid peroxidation (LPO), a leading cause of neuro degeneration.

More interestingly, Betalains, major phytochemicals isolated from beetroot also expressed a extraordinary neuro protective effect in preventing oxidative processes in contribution to the early onset of several degenerative diseases.

In the study of betanin bioavailability in four volunteers with consumption 300 mL of red beet juice, containing 120 mg of the antioxidant, reseraches found that the phytochemical showed a protection against certain oxidative stress-related disorders in humans after absorbed from the gut and identified in urine after 2-4 h, particularly in inhibited lipid peroxidation, a leading cause of neuro degenerative disease.

Dr. Kanner J, the lead author said, "Antioxidant nutrients from fruits and vegetables are believed to be a class of compounds that exert their effects in humans by preventing oxidative processes which contribute to the onset of several degenerative diseases".

Collectively, Whole food beetroot or beet juice may be used as therapeutic agent for preventing the early onset and treatment of neuro degenerative disease through protection of neuro cells against oxidation.
