Brain starvation as we age appears to trigger Alzheimer’s
A slow, chronic starvation of the brain as we age appears to be a major trigger of a biochemical process that causes some forms of Alzheimer’s disease. A new study from Northwestern University has found when the brain doesn’t get enough sugar glucose — as when cardiovascular disease restricts blood flow to the brain — a process is launched that produces the sticky clumps of protein that appear to be a cause of Alzheimer’s.

Collagen May Help Protect Brain Against Alzheimer’s Disease 

  • (December 11, 2008) — Scientists have discovered that a certain type of collagen, collagen VI, protects brain cells against amyloid-beta proteins, which are widely thought to cause Alzheimer’s disease. … > full story

OUR COMMENTS:

What is collagen

  • Collagen forms connective tissues which hold all organs in place.
  • It’s made from amino acids in proteins and is dependent on  Vitamin C.
  • Antioxidants protect it.
  •  

    Weak collagen?

    • scurvy, loss of teeth, bleeding gums, skin discoloration, unhealed wounds
    • too little vitamin C leads to lupus or rheumatoid arthritis

The study found that the erosive effect of tea was similar to that of water, which has no erosive effect. … full story
    • History  Wikipedia 
      • Tea consumption had its origin in China more than 4,000 years ago[5]. Green tea has been used as traditional medicine in areas such as China, Japan, India and Thailand to help everything from controlling bleeding and helping heal wounds to regulating body temperature, blood sugar and promoting digestion.
      • The Kissa Yojoki (Book of Tea), written by Zen priest Eisai in 1191, describes how drinking green tea can have a positive effect on the five vital organs, especially the heart. The book discusses tea’s medicinal qualities, which include easing the effects of alcohol, acting as a stimulant, curing blotchiness, quenching thirst, eliminating indigestion, curing beriberi disease, preventing fatigue, and improving urinary and brain function.
