Neurodegenerative diseases are a group of progressive neurological disorders that damage or destroy the function of neurons, and include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, brain tumor, and meningitis. It is interesting to note that the incidence of neurodegenerative diseases among people living in the Asian subcontinent is much lower than in North America, thus some researchers posit the influence of lifestyle factors; for example, the those residing in the Asian subcontinent regularly consume spices. Bharat Bhushan Aggarwal, from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Texas, USA), and colleagues submit that extensive research over the last 10 years indicates that nutraceuticals derived from such spices as turmeric, red pepper, black pepper, licorice, clove, ginger, garlic, coriander, and cinnamon target inflammatory pathways, and thereby may prevent neurodegenerative diseases.
Study “Neuroprotection by Spice-Derived Nutraceuticals: You Are What You Eat!” Abstract
Numerous lines of evidence indicate that chronic inflammation plays a major role in the development of various neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, brain tumor, and meningitis. Why these diseases are more common among people from some countries than others is not fully understood, but lifestyle factors have been linked to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. For example, the incidence of certain neurodegenerative diseases among people living in the Asian subcontinent, where people regularly consume spices, is much lower than in countries of the western world. Extensive research over the last 10 years has indicated that nutraceuticals derived from such spices as turmeric, red pepper, black pepper, licorice, clove, ginger, garlic, coriander, and cinnamon target inflammatory pathways, thereby may prevent neurodegenerative diseases. How these nutraceuticals modulate various pathways and how they exert neuroprotection are the focus of this review.
