Scientists at the Kyushu University in Japan found that a fragment of the protein contained in soy beans, can prevent memory loss in people with Alzheimer’s disease — a deadly form of dementia.
Selected molecule, which may become a remedy for the disease, refers to the dipeptide contains two amino acids — tyrosine and Proline. Experts experiments on mice have shown that this molecule is the only current connection that can readily go from the stomach to the brain.
Scientists have studied the effect of dipeptide on rodents. The animals gave it for several days before and after the injection of a substance that imitated the development of Alzheimer’s disease with memory loss.
The mouse who ate the dipeptide showed a better result with the passage of the maze, the rodents treated with a substance that induces memory impairment.
The researchers found that the protein fragment had a positive impact on long-term and short-term memory, reported in the journal Science of Food.
