Mint constituent Rosmarinic Acid and Alzheimer’s Disease
Deposition of amyloid β-protein (Aβ) in the brain is a feature of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Evidence suggests that moderate consumption of foods enriched with phenolic compounds reduce the incidence of Alzheimer’s Disease.
A study by Ono et al reported that the phenolic compounds myricetin and rosmarinic acid inhibited Aβ aggregation.
The investigations on these phenolic compounds showed that they blocked Aβ oligomerization.
These results suggest that Rosmarinic Acid (a component of Mint) may play a key role in blocking the toxicity and early assembly processes associated with Aβ in Alzheimer’s Disease.
Mint is a key functional ingredient used in InnOrbit products like YOUNG&FUN.
