Researchers have identified two substances that can slow the disease process of PD or even counteract. The naturally substances occur in yogurt and unripe fruit.
It would be a sensation: substances that stuck in everyday foods, intended to prevent or at least to influence on the course of Parkinson disease positive. If true, a risk-free treatment of nervous disease could be possible.
In Parkinson disease the nerve cells and the mitochondria are damage, as a result it leads to the death of nerve cells in the Substantia nigra. Now scientists have discovered that the substance D-lactate glycolic acid repair the cellular power plants and thus ensure the survival of nerve cells.
D-lactate glycolic acid and repair defective cells.
It has long been known that Parkinson disease is occur due in part to genetic defects. For dozens of genes have been already found treated measures, inter alia, DJ1. Researchers have now found that DJ1 produces an enzyme that in turn creates two vital substances D-lactate and glycolic acid. If the function of DJ-1 is disturbed, there are not enough amounts of the two substances to cell repair.
However, the two substances are also found in foods. D-lactate (lactic acid) is mainly found in yogurt in glycolic acid (fruit acid) and especially in immature fruit, but also in plums, grapes or sugar cane. From the intestine lactic and fruit acids enter to the bloodstream and can overcome from here to the so-called blood-brain barrier and reach the faulty cells. The scientists emphasize: animal and human nerve cells with the two substances could be fully repaired again in lab tests.
