Phytic acid, a bioactive compound found mostly in seeds and beans may have a strong and profound effect in protecting the aging brain against the onset of Alzheimer's disease (AD), some scientists suggested.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease occurred mostly in the older population characterized by progressive brain cell death that happens over time.
Phytic acid (Inositol hexaphosphate) are phytochemicals of the organic acid found abundantly in nuts, sesame seeds, soybeans, wheat, pumpkin, beans, almonds, etc.
Phytochemicals, the natural chemical constituent, protect the plants against diseases and form their outer's color. Phytochemicals may be next potential sources of new medications for the treatment of diseases with little or no side effects.
In the finding of a novel protective treatment for AD pathology, researchers at the Oregon Health & Science University, Portland conducted an investigation to evaluate the phytic acid(inositol hexakisphosphate), a phytochemical found in food grains and a key signaling molecule in mammalian cells.
Furthermore, injection of phytic acid significantly increased brain levels of cytochrome oxidase which is found in low levels in AD patients and decreased the lipid peroxidation.
