Green Tea and Red Wine Extracts Interrupt Alzheimer's Disease Pathway in Cells, University of Leeds Study
Published: Feb 07, 2013
Natural chemicals found in green tea and red wine may disrupt a key step of the Alzheimer's disease pathway, according to new research from the University of Leeds. In early-stage laboratory experiments, the researchers identified the process which allows harmful clumps of protein to latch on to brain cells, causing them to die. They were able to interrupt this pathway using the purified extracts of EGCG from green tea and resveratrol from red wine.
