Probiotics and Alzheimer’s Prevention
We have reporting previously on the role of probiotics on cognition, but now research published in Nature suggests that there might be a further link to brain health, namely Alzheimer’s disease. The study shows that, at least in mice, there was a definite link between the microbial makeup of the gastrointestinal tract and the development of beta-amyloid plaque, a factor in the development of the disease. This supports further research that is currently being done by both the National Institute of Mental Health and the U.S. Office of Naval Research to examine the relationships between intestinal flora and brain function. Until we know more it is good advice to ensure that your digestive tract has the “good bacteria” that contribute to good health. Are you getting yours?
