The major cause of dementia (Alzheimer’s disease) is considered as “Waste” in the brain. Accumulation of the “Waste” in the brain kills the nerve cells, causing dementia.
According to the latest research, it has turned out that dementia can be prevented by removing the “Waste” in the brain.
“Waste” in the brain exists even in the brain of young people such as 20s or 30s. The important thing is whether the power to remove the “Waste” in the brain is strong or not.
What is “Waste” in the brain?
“Waste“ in the brain is protein deposit called amyloid beta-protein (Fig. 1). It is unknown why the accumulation of the “Waste” occurs.
According the latest research, it is okay if Amyloid beta-protein can be removed even if they are created in the brain.
Amyloid beta is produced in everybody’s brain. The important thing is whether the strength to remove amyloid beta becomes weak or not.
The amount of “Waste” in the brain (amyloid beta) of the person who have dementia due to the weakness of the removal strength is 25 times more than the one of a normal person with the same age.
What makes the difference of the power to remove the “Waste”?
One of the major causes that makes the power to remove amyloid beta worse is related to the movement of a part of the body.
18 and 20 years old women attended an experiment.
Amyloid beta is produced in everybody’s brain regardless of the age.
If the power to remove amyloid beta is strong, amyloid beta is excreted into the blood, so it doesn’t affect the brain function. If the power to remove amyloid beta becomes weak, the amount of amyloid beta in the blood decreases.
The amounts of their amyloid beta in the blood are 6.82 and 5.87 (pmol/L) before the experiment.
After they spent 10 hours in a comfortable room watching movies, taking a nap, eating anything they liked to eat, the amounts of their amyloid beta in the blood decreased from 6.82 to 1.05 and from 5.87 to 0.74 (pmol/L). That means that their brain became unable to remove amyloid beta.
The movement of what part of the body became worse?
That is the pulsation of the blood vessel.
What is the relationship between the pulsation of the blood vessel and the power to remove amyloid beta?
Amyloid beta is produced in the cell and accumulated in the brain. If the blood vessel is pulsated properly, amyloid beta produced in the brain is pushed out of the brain through the blood vessel and excreted from the body.
But if the pulsation of the blood vessel becomes weak, amyloid beta stays in the brain and can’t be flowed out of the brain.
The cause of lowering the pulsation of the blood vessel is progression of hardening of blood vessels due to bad life habits.
How to strengthen the power to remove amyloid beta by heightening the pulsation of the blood vessel
Taking a nutrition heightens the pulsation of the blood vessel, strengthening the power to remove amyloid beta.
The nutrition is Resveratrol.
Resveratrol is a type of polyphenol contained in the skin of grapes and peanuts. But at this time it is unknown how much is needed and how effective taking resveratrol is.
2 women whose ages were 78 and 69 and who were worrying about their cognitive function attended an experiment.
The amounts of their amyloid beta were 1.06 and 1.89 (pmol/L) before the experiment.
They ate 10-15 peanuts with the skin a day and 10 minutes walking a day.
78 years old woman: amyloid beta in the blood became 6.89 (pmol/L) in 5 days and brain age became 50s from 80s.
69 years old woman: amyloid beta in the blood became 8.47 (pmol/L) in 2 days.
The numbers were improved in a very short time and were better than the young women who attended earlier experiment.
Based on this experiment, combination of peanuts with the skin and 10 minutes walking can be expected to improve the power to remove “Waste” in the brain and prevent dementia.
