Alzheimer’s Reversal Breakthrough?

Scientists discover way to reverse age-related memory loss

| Feb 18, 2020

| Albany,  NY, WRGB — Scientists at Albany Medical College have discovered a breakthrough that could one day help patients battling Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

In the study, published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine on Feb. 5th, the team of immunologists and neuroscientists found that targeting a specific immune cell, known as “group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s), in the brain may reverse age-related cognitive decline.

These immune cells help repair parts of the central nervous system.

Using mice, they found that these ILC2 cells in the brain collect in the part of the brain called the choroid plexus, a specialized brain barrier that provides a toxin barrier to the brain and other central nervous system tissue.

They also found that these cells accumulate with age.

“In our study, we found that the cells not only accumulate in the brain of aged mice but they also have beneficial effects in alleviating cognitive decline in these aged mice, once it’s activated,” said Ivan Ting Hin Fung, Ph.D., research associate in the Department of Immunology and Microbial Disease at Albany Medical College and the study’s lead author.

“Once we activate the cells once the cells are activated they can release beneficial products that can improve the cognitive function in the aged mice,” said Qi Yang, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Immunology and Microbial Disease at Albany Medical College and a co-senior author of the study … Read more.

After all, the skin is often the first part of our body to show internal trouble, and there’s only so much that lotions, creams, masks, and serums can do before we need to take a closer look at what’s fueling us.

Researchers have even concluded that eating fruits and veggies is the safest and healthiest way to combat dull complexions and fine lines.

Ready to glow? Here are 10 of the best anti-aging foods to nourish your body for a glow that comes from within.

Red bell pepper

Red bell peppers are loaded with antioxidants which reign supreme when it comes to anti-aging.

In addition to their high content of vitamin C — which is good for collagen production — red bell peppers contain powerful antioxidants called carotenoids.

Blueberries

Blueberries are rich in vitamins A and C, as well as an age-defying antioxidant called anthocyanin. This is what gives blueberries their deep, beautiful blue color.

These powerful antioxidants may help protect skin from damage due to the sun, stress, and pollution by moderating the inflammatory response and preventing collagen loss

Nuts

Many nuts (especially almonds) are a great source of vitamin E, which may help repair skin tissue, retain skin moisture, and protect skin from damaging UV rays.

Walnuts even contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids that may help:

  • strengthen skin cell membranes
  • protect against sun damage
  • give skin a beautiful glow by preserving its natural oil barrier … See the full list here.
