Natural Compound Formula Boosts Regeneration Of Neurons In Aged Brain

June 29, 2010: 11:38 AM EST
A combination of natural compounds made from blueberries, green tea, and amino acids such as carnosine was found to promote adult neural stem cell proliferation in aged rats and boost their memory performance, according to a placebo-controlled U.S. study. Researchers examining natural therapeutic approaches to promoting neuron health in the aging brain said the mixture, called NT-020, enhanced stem cell production and neurogenesis, the process by which new brain cells are generated. They believe that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients in NT-020 suppress the inflammation in the brain that lowers the production of stem cells that create new neurons. The NT-020 formula was patented by the University of South Florida and licensed to Natura Therapeutics, Inc.
