According to a report by the US “United Press International”, a study from Germany showed that certain polyphenols contained in olives can delay the progression of brain diseases and improve mitochondrial dysfunction, thereby preventing Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study by experts at the University of Frankfurt and the Darmstadt University of Technology examined the role of olives (an important component of the Mediterranean diet) in preventing neurodegenerative symptoms such as memory loss. They believe that the nutrients contained in this fruit can prevent and even reverse Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of Alzheimer’s disease.
The newly extracted material from the olives is first tested in a cell culture dish to test its ability to protect against the erosion of nerve cells and toxins associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The researchers found that the most active compounds in olives improve brain function in mice with neurodegenerative diseases. Previous studies have found a correlation between the consumption of olive oil and the reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers are currently refining new technologies for extracting these substances from olive trees so that they can be extracted more easily and yields can be significantly improved.
