Currently, more than five million American’s are facing a decline in the quality of their lives due to Alzheimer’s diagnosis.  Research continues to grow and scientists and medical professionals desire to find a successful treatment or cure.  (1)

University of Washington recently released a studying identifying the discovery of a protein blocker could lead to early diagnosis and even treat the disease.  (2)

“If you can truly catch and neutralize the toxic version of these proteins, then you hopefully never get any further damage in the body,” said senior author Valerie Daggett, a UW professor of bioengineering. “What’s critical with this and what has never been done before is that a single peptide sequence will work against the toxic versions of a number of different amyloid proteins and peptides, regardless of their amino acid sequence or the normal 3-D structures.” (2)

Buildup of amyloid proteins found to cause Alzheimer’s disease

This study reports that more than 40 illnesses are known as amyloid diseases, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Rheumatoid Arthritis are examples.  These diseases are linked to a buildup of proteins that have abnormally folded and grouped to create deposits called fibrils or plaques.  As our bodies age, our bodies are unable to break down proteins as quickly as they used to and this causes a build up to occur.  (2)

In Dr. Paul Greengard’s research, he too came to the conclusion that amyloid proteins were indeed the main contributor behind these diseases.  He reports, “the combination of inhibition of formation and acceleration of breakdown of beta-amyloid represents a new and powerful strategy for treating Alzheimer’s disease.” (3)

Ashwaganda, curcumin, Vitamin D and exercise found to clear amyloid protein from the brain

The National Brain Research Centre (NBRC), gave mice with Alzheimer’s  ashwaganda extract for 20 days.  After 20 days, the mice showed improvement and after 30 day’s the mice returned to normal or healthy functioning.  Further analysis reported that a reduction of amyloid plaque had improved the cognitive abilities of the mice. (4)

Researcher’s reported that ashwaganda extract did not impact the brain directly but instead worked by boosting a protein in the liver that enters the bloodstream and helped clear the amyloid from the brain.  Researchers concluded, The remarkable therapeutic effect of W. somnifera [ashwaganda]… reverses the behavioral deficits and pathology seen in Alzheimer’s disease models.” (4)

Another research article reports that when studying the brain of those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, they found that the brains contained less PGC-1alpha than normal.  It was found that brains that produce more PGC-1alpha produce less toxic amyloid protein.  This study reported that exercise was found to increase levels of protein PGC-1alpha and could help protect against Alzheimer. (5)

Another study, shows that pairing curcumin and Vitamin D together help stimulate the immune system to clear the brain of amyloid protein. (5)

It appears that ashwaganda, curcumin, Vitamin D and exercise may help the body remove amyloid protein, which is thought to cause diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis and several other amyloid diseases.
