Rosemary and mint help pre-Alzheimers

Rosemary and mint help pre-Alzheimers

RosemaryRosemary for remembrance may be more than just an old saying.

Extracts from rosemary and spearmint may have a role in helping people who are in a pre-Alzheimers stage.

“We found that these proprietary compounds reduce deficits caused by mild cognitive impairment, which can be a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease,” said Susan Farr, Ph.D., research professor geriatrics at Saint Louis University School of Medicine.

Farr added, “This probably means eating spearmint and rosemary is good for you. However, our experiments were in an animal model and I don’t know how much – or if any amount – of these herbs people would have to consume for learning and memory to improve.

“In other words, I’m not suggesting that people chew more gum at this point.”

“Our research suggests these extracts made from herbs might have beneficial effects on altering the course of age-associated cognitive decline,” Farr said. “It’s worth additional study.”

Her findings were presented to the Neuroscience Meeting 2013.
