Mint Component & Neuroprotective Properties
Mint was studied by Lou et al to evaluate if it has brain protecting properties. The results of their studies identified Linarin, a component of Mint. Additionally they found that Linarin:
- Prevents neuro-toxicity (protection against artificial toxic substances).
Inhibits acetylcholinesterase activity – increasing both the level and duration of action of neurotransmitter acetylcholine and its resistance to disease (Alzheimer’s).
- The results suggest a possibility that linarin from Mint may be a therapy against Alzheimer’s disease acting through both acetylcholinesterase inhibition and neuro-protection.
Mint is a key component of Natural Health Drinks that The Wise Herb Company make.
Recommendation: To take advantage of this particular property try YOUNG&FUN which will help complement healthy ageing and brain function. YOUNG&FUN is packed with antioxidants and contains MINT as a key ingredient.
