I am excited about some research news that was shared at a BYU Forum yesterday. Please take time to listen to this facinating discussion about the scientific discoveries of some substances that are now going to human testing, looking very promissing for reversing the protein folding in the brains of Patients with ALS, Parkinsons and alzymers and other neurological imparements.
My researching Dr. Paul Alan Cox brought me to a Ted presentation at:
https://brainchemistrylabs.org on the ‘about’ page. Here is a quote from the page.: “We have only one wish at the Institute for Ethnomedicine: to discover new treatments for serious illnesses. This focus has led to the discovery of two promising new drugs for ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other tangle diseases.”
I am excited because of the inclusion of some of the same ingredients in our LuminAloe formula as mentioned in the Forum titled “Exploring Nature’s Curiosity Cabinet”
From the website..https://ascendsciences.net Organic Yam Powder
(Dioscorea Villosa) powder – is naturally high in the chemical diosgenin; which in a laboratory can be converted into estrogen. Wild Yam is considered a phytoestrogen food, meaning it comes from plants used to produce estrogen therapy and relief of menstrual-related conditions.
The diosgenin in Wild Yam has been studied extensively and research suggests it supports healthy blood sugar levels. Other respected studies further suggest it is also antiproliferative – which means it may help keep unhealthy or DNA-damaged cells in check. Yet another study suggests diosgenin may support healthy HDL production and help stifle unhealthy LDL production.
Traditionally, Wild Yam was used as an antispasmodic for colic in babies and some people actually call it colic root. However, most people use it due to the DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) it contains.”
