Coconut oil has been the subject of a lot of conflicting information recently.
The Indian spice turmeric has been getting a lot of attention lately for its health benefits, and many people now take turmeric supplements regularly for their anti-inflammatory effects.
An active compound found in the cannabis plant called tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC, has recently been found to promote the removal of toxic clumps of amyloid beta protein in the brain, which are thought to be precursors to Alzheimer’s disease.
These findings support the results of previous studies, which found evidence of the protective effects of cannabinoids, including THC, on patients with the neurodegenerative disease.
According to senior paper author David Schubert, of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California, “Although other studies have offered evidence that cannabinoids might be neuroprotective against the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, we believe our study is the first to demonstrate that cannabinoids affect both inflammation and amyloid beta accumulation in nerve cells.”
