Ginger Components: Help Developing neurons and the maintenance of Mature neurons

August 25, 2012

Components from Ginger (phenylbutenoid dimers) have been isolated by Matesui et al . The objective was to explore the neurotrophic effects of these components in vitro and in vivo. Neurotrophic Effects are responsible for the growth and survival of developing neurons and the maintenance of mature neurons.

A variety of factors were measured like Neurogenesis & Cell Death.
