Can Eating Cherries Reduce Symptoms of Degenerative Brain Diseases?
Researchers are constantly working to unravel the mysteries of the human brain. One of the biggest mysteries is the cause and progression of degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. Researchers have found that numerous substances can be linked with a decrease in symptoms of these diseases. For instance, chocolate has been shown in studies to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Also in the past Coconut Oil was proven by a physician to slow down and even aid in Alzheimer symptoms. A physician gave her husband two tablespoons everyday for two months and recorded her findings in a study proving her theory.
Now, new studies reveal tart cherries grown in Michigan can improve brain function as well as reduce the symptoms of degenerative brain diseases. The study only focused on cherries grown in Michigan; however, it’s likely cherries in New Mexico would work just the same. The study concluded by a neuroscientist from Central Michigan University. He found that “the compound built around extracts from tart cherries improved brain function in mice with Alzheimer’s symptoms and reduced symptoms of Huntington’s disease in other lab animals,” according to the Detroit Free Press. The supplement is marketed under the name Cerise.
Despite the risks involved with natural supplements and tests that reveal that these supplements may be ineffective, the cherry supplement slowed down the growth of neurodegenerative diseases. The supplements did not lead to other, harmful side effects either. The supplements have also helped with arthritis, high cholesterol, Crohn’s disease and other conditions.
