Subject: A Healthy Endocannabinoid System ECS Properly Regulates The Following:

Understanding the ECS

Some Endocannabinoids tell out body how much inflammatory messenger molecules to release or with hold. Others tell how fast to move food through the gastrointestinal tract. Still others tell the brain to release or hold neurotransmitters to calm the brain.

  • Stress
  • Memory
  • Mood
  • Inflammation
  • Energy
  • Sleep
  • Metabolism
  • Appetite
  • Appetite
  • Pain response
  • Immune function
  • Nerve signaling
  • Muscle control

Age does Matter!

Aging is a major contributor to a unhealthy ECS function. Lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, exposure to toxins and stress impact and contribute to a declining ECS.

  • These factors cause us to product fewer endocannabinoids.
  • Contribute to fewer enzymes known to liberate endocannabinoids in the body.
  • Then, Endocannabinoid receptors loose sensitivity and don't respond well.

Any age can consume CBD and benefit from a balanced ECS. Take the plunge and try CBD today!

Subject: Oat extract can protect against alcohol-induced liver damage





Eating oats may prevent liver damage caused by drinking, according to research published in the journal Nutrition Research. Indian researchers tested the effects of oat extract on mice with alcohol-induced liver damage. First, they pretreated mice with phenolic-enriched ethyl acetate fraction of oats at two levels every day for 12 days. Next, they induced liver damage in the same mice with doses of 50 percent ethanol every 12 hours. Their results showed that pretreatment with oat extract at higher dosages decreased the levels of liver injury.

Key Takeaways:

  • Oats, which goes by the scientific name Avena sativa, has been found to be effective in preventing alcohol-induced liver damage.
  • A mice model was used in understanding the effects of oats on liver damage but it is stated that the real pathways for this is not well understood.
  • The research team first gave oats extracts to mice for 12 days then they induced liver damage on them and then they measured the alcohol-induced liver injury.

"Research has found an association between consumption of oats and lower risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and gastrointestinal disorders."

Subject: Here's how you can improve digestion naturally!





Due to the stresses of everyday life and unhealthy eating, more people than ever are experiencing digestive issues. Fortunately, there are some relatively easy and natural ways to avoid antacids, antibiotics, and other medicines that come with negative side effects. Ginger is one substance that has been used for generations for a whole host of digestive problems, including bloating and general discomfort. It works best if it's ingested before a meal. Peppercorns are another spice that can help improve overall digestion and boost the metabolism. Carrom seeds are commonly used in Indian dishes and are known for alleviating constipation and activating digestive enzymes. Finally, clove is great for flatulence and indigestion.

Key Takeaways:

  • One facet of our modern life is that we tend to ignore minor digestion related issues until they become something serious.
  • Using antacids and antibiotics, people look for quick solutions to issues such as acidity, heartburn, constipation, and other related problems without understanding the cause of the problem.
  • This article includes natural herbs and spices that are a way to boost the body’s defenses and provide protection from digestion related issues.

"Modern lifestyle comes with its own set of sorrows and poor metabolism and digestion are one of the primary signs of deteriorating health conditions."

Subject: 6 reasons to care about your gut flora





Gut flora is made up of the bacteria that resides in our intestines and stomach. While we are born with some of this, the rest can be affected through our diets. Having good bacteria helps eliminate what is not good and there are several examples. First, there is a link between good bacteria in the gut flora and our overall mental health. There is a lot of bacteria already identified, with some of the benefits not known yet and a deepening understanding is important. Bad bacteria can cause a number of diseases, but being healthy and eating appropriately can decrease the need things like probiotics, which people may needlessly use while on antibiotics. Finally, prebiotics found in foods that promote good gut flora can lead to a decrease in blood pressure.

Key Takeaways:

  • Because the microbiome in the gut has been linked to various physical and mental health situations, we have to be interested in what is going on there.
  • The microbiome is made up of good bacteria that reside in our intestines that help us when we want to digest food.
  • The bacteria in our gut is partly what we were born with (that is from our mother) and partly from our lifestyle and dietary choices.

"With probiotics, fermented foods and kombucha all trending in recent years, we wanted to find out what all the fuss was about when it comes to our gut health."

Subject: A form of vitamin E derived from annato can lessen your risk ofbone loss due to diabetes





Tocotrienols, a chemical grouping that belongs to the vitamin E family, has been shown by research to have efficacy in reducing blood sugar levels and inhibiting bone loss. The most recent research came in the form of two studies, both of which made use of a tropical fruit, known as the annato. A pre-diabetic state and osteoporosis was induced in rodent subjects for both of the studies. One of the studies, conducted in Malaysia, showed that the rodent subjects had better parameters for a number of metabolic syndrome indicators, such as fasting blood glucose and triglycerides. In the case of the Malaysian study, the rodents either received a dose of tocotrienols commensurate with normal human supplementation or a diet stripped of tocotrienols. A Texas-based research study compared the tocotrienols with Metformin, a commonly prescribed diabetic medicine. Results showed that the tocotrienols in higher doses was better than the medicine in instituting bone growth. A third study, also in Malaysia, used human subjects with type 2 diabetes. Markers for the human subjects were also improved for the subjects that consumed tocotrienols.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are so many people in the world today that are suffering from diabetic disorders.
  • Understanding how to use vitamins to combat your disease is a great method to use.
  • You should do everything in your power to reduce the risk of losing density in your bones as you get older.

"Studies have shown that tocotrienols may help inhibit bone loss and regulate blood sugar levels. The tocotrienols used in the studies were derived from the red-orange tropical fruit known as annatto."

Almonds are a versatile, portable, tasty and nutritious snack food. However, new research suggests that the salad topper may also have more to impart to eaters, particularly if the eaters in question number among the millions struggling under the burden of type 2 diabetes. Of the more than 400 million who struggle with the disease, worldwide, nearly 80 million cases can be found in the country of India, alone. One study, using Indian subjects with type 2 diabetes and elevated cholesterol levels, discovered some interesting results. The subjects were given whole un-roasted almonds in place of 20 calories in an otherwise balanced eating plan. The subjects heart health showed marked improvement. Another study used Chinese participants and allowed 60 grams of almonds a day. Blood sugar levels and cardiovascular aspects were not affected by this study's regime. However, for some subjects with otherwise well-controlled type 2 diabetes, blood sugar serum levels dropped. Almonds may improve inflammation, which is a factor in cardiovascular disease. They also provide vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Key Takeaways:

  • For the people who have diabetes, they have a lot of work to do to deal with it everyday.
  • Understanding the effects of diabetes and what it does will allow people to realize how stressful it could be.
  • There are a lot of studies coming out that indicate almonds to be good for the heart for people who are diabetic.

Depression is something that a ton of people in the world today suffer from. It is not an easy thing to deal with. However, if you are someone who has it, then you must find how you can cope with it. It may be hard but there is always something that you can do to help yourself. Understanding where depression comes from is difficult as well. However, some doctors say that it can be caused by some brain inflammation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some neurologists believe that depression is caused by brain inflammation and these inflammations are not readily noticed because the brain doesn’t have pain receptors.
  • People with chronic inflammation are at higher risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease because it causes inflammation of the brain, making the amygdala smaller.
  • The brain chemical deficiency model of depression is the model that scientists have been working on for very long time and it fuels Big Pharma producing harmful chemicals.

"Chronic inflammation is largely caused by unhealthy lifestyle habits such as poor diet, lack of physical exercise, and inadequate sleep, among others. These behaviors, while seemingly inconsequential initially, fuel the inflammation response long after it stops being helpful."

There are a lot of people out there who know a little bit about the gut. A gut is something that actually has a lot of use cases for the human body. Some people understand that while other people think that is completely crazy. Depending on who you are and what you have seen, you will have your own opinion on this. Whether you believe it or not, the things you consume get stored within your gut.

Key Takeaways:

  • The way your stomach looks is largely due to what is in your gut after you consume it.
  • There are a lot of things that go hand in hand with your gut and its processes.
  • Understanding your body and knowing what to eat and what not to eat is so crucial.

Protease: The Enzyme that Makes Protein & Amino Acids Tick

Protease is an enzyme. People do not realize the importance that some of these enzymes have. If you ask some random person what an enzyme is, the chances are that they probably will not know. That is how uneducated many individuals are when it comes to science and what it consists of. Protein and amino acids actually rely on enzymes to tick and it is a matter of simply understanding how it works. Some people grasp it better than others.

Key Takeaways:

  • Because of the biological importance of proteolytic enzymes, they have been a focus of the pharmaceutical industry.
  • When proteins are digested, the proteolytic enzymes in the stomach break them down repeatedly to amino acids that are then absorbed by the body.
  • If the body cannot produce proteolytic enzymes, it cannot break down proteins and this leads to serious health issues.

"Proteases have been called biology’s version of Swiss army knives, able to cut long sequences of proteins into fragments. A protease is an enzyme that breaks the long, chainlike molecules of proteins so they can be digested."

Sea buckthorn oil can promote liver health and decrease the storage of body fat

More study is now being done regarding lesser known fruits and vegetables, not only for the betterment of human understanding, but also to potentially augment the list of natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals for the improvement of human health.

Healthy lipids and fatty acids have been on the nutrition radar for a while now, as these items are known for having useful bioactive ingredients, including high vitamin content, making them useful for human consumption. Sea buckthorn oil is a new face on the lipid list, but offering some impressive credentials. For example, the plant shows high levels of vitamin A and E, phytosterols and unsaturated fatty acids. One study suggests that the type of oil used by humans effects how much vitamin A the liver stores. The ware-housing effect was considerably upped when rats were given sea buckthorn oil as opposed to soybean oil. Sea buckthorn oil has other pluses too. It can reverse GERD and possibly ulcers, also lower cholesterol and promote heart health. It also reduces inflammation, making it useful for sore inflamed, reddened skin.

Key Takeaways:

  • Every part of the sea buckthorn – oil, leaves, fruit and bark – have been found to have medicinal properties.
  • Based on experiments on rats, sea buckthorn has been found to have high levels of C16 fatty acids and high amount of carotenoids.
  • Sea buckthorn oil, according to the findings, has important effects on the storage of fats in tissues.

"Lesser known fruits and plants have been gradually taking the spotlight in alternative medicine as natural remedies to various health conditions and improving overall nutrition."

Is Your Body Too Alkaline Or Too Acidic? Here’s How To Know

Your body needs to maintain a neutral pH of 7.365 to remain in peak health. If your body becomes too acidic, as through too much consumption of meat, dairy, grain or processed foods, it can leach nutrients out of your system and cause inflammation, poor immunity and other ailments. Becoming too alkaline can also cause problems, including cramping, irritability and cramping. Generally, your diet should contain about 80% alkaline (fresh fruits and vegetable) and 20% acidic (everything else) foods in order to preserve the. A rural balance inside your body.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is important to keep your body’s pH as close to neutral as possible, since being too acidic or alkaline can cause health problems.
  • Meat, milk, sugar and processed foods make your body too acidic, which can cause inflammation and make you less resistant to infection.
  • It is also possible for your body to become alkaline, which results in symptoms like craps, muscle spasms and irritability.

"It’s all about finding that optimal acid-base balance and more importantly, understanding when your body is imbalanced."

Is CBD Oil The Supplement That Your Workout Is Missing?

Although hard evidence about the effects of cannabinoids like CBD is difficult to come by, our growing understanding of the body's natural endocannabinoid systems suggest that there is at least the potential for benefits from CBD for athletic performance. CBD, for example, may help boost the endocannabinoid system's suppression of pain and inflammation. However, it is also important to note that THC, the psychoactive ingredient in whole marijuana, appears to decrease long-range endurance. More research is sorely needed to understand just how CBD and other cannabinoid compounds impact athletic performance.

Key Takeaways:

  • A component called endocannabinoids is found in CBD oil which can help regulate brain function.
  • CBD oil is a more viable option for athletics as THC can really hinder levels of endurance.
  • CBD oil has not been proven to change a person's heart rate or blood pressure during physical activity yet.

"Despite anecdotal evidence that CBD oil might help with athletic performance and recovery, there actually haven't been any clinical trials examining those effects, says Brook Henry, PhD, an assistant research scientist at the University of California, San Diego's Center for Medical Cannabis Research and department of psychiatry."

Subject: Zinc-binding is vital for regulating pH levels in the brain





According to a study from the University of Oslo, Zinc-binding plays a critical role in the regulation and sensing of pH in the brains of humans. This is one of the first studies to link the binding of zinc with bicarbonate transporters. Researchers from the University’s Centre for Molecular Medicine published these findings in Scientific Reports. These results are important because optimal ph levels are very important for our overall health. In fact, low ph levels in infants sometimes leads to brain damage. Lead researcher Preben Morth emphasized that research into zinc’s role in the regulation of ph is important for understanding overall brain health and function.

Key Takeaways:

  • A low ph-level at birth is linked to low oxygen which can lead to brain damage
  • zinc binding is an important element of having a balanced ph level
  • before CO2 is expelled as waste from our body it is part of the process of regulating our ph

"An example of how important pH levels are to our health is demonstrated by the fact that pH levels in blood from the umbilical cord are always tested in newborn babies."

Researchers have made an estimate and guessed that there are 75 trillion cells in the body. Each of those cells is surrounded by a membrane that is bean shaped. This membrane is made up of dense rows of fatty acids. These require protection from lipid peroxidation. Vitamin E is one of the popular antioxidants. Vitamin E is shaped like a tadpole, which is the perfect shape to do this job. There are two forms of Vitamin E.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers estimate that the human body could contain as many as 75 trillion cells. Each of those cells is surrounded by a bean-shaped membrane made up of dense rows
  • Vitamin E comes in the perfect molecular shape to do this job—like a tadpole, with a head and tail, similar to the phospholipids that complement the cell membrane.
  • While alpha-tocopherol research still occurs at a much greater level than tocotrienol research, there has been a downward trend in alpha-tocopherol research alongside an increase in understanding.

"In this study, researchers found that alpha-tocopherol, when co-administered with tocotrienols, reduced tocotrienols’ inhibitory effect on HMGR."

In the attached article, the author provides an overview of the historical and current uses of the hemp plant, describes the misunderstanding of its properties and details the legal and political obstacles its use has met. The author recommends that US farmers and manufacturers continue to work toward removal of growing restrictions and increased use of hemp in industrial and commercial applications.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although hemp and weed are from the same cannabis species, hemp actually contains less than 1% of THC.
  • Hemp has many environmental benefits and its products can compete with the plastic industry.
  • If we educate our legislators on the benefits of hemp, we have the potential to save the Earth.

I have heard about some of the health benefits of cumin. At first, I though this sounded to good to be true. Then as I watched more of the video I had a better understanding of the health benefits of cumin. I do not think it is healthy to lose 30 pounds in 1 month.

For example, men tended to use more frequently, more heavily, and experience more often the binge food craving effect of weed. Women it seems may feel many of the physical effects more acutely then men. Genetics and hormones play a role in our health and behavior, and it appears they impact the effects of marijuana as well.

Homeopathy, chiropractic, natural sweeteners, and herbal ear drops are few popular therapies with unclear research results. The practicality, cost, and safety of any alternatives should be considered.

Key Takeaways:

  • Parents are often concerned about how to treat an ear infection, they do not always wish to use traditional medical treatments and seek homeopathic alternatives.
  • Homeopathic treatments are not widely studied and often have no regulatory aspects by the FDA. Further monitoring will give better overall data for decision making when choosing homeopathic treatment
  • Before making your choice to try non traditional treatments, find out about the treatments, costs and which doctors advocate for certain treatments as safe for children.

If you notice that your body is swelling at times, without a reasonable cause, it can simply be excess fluid due to a change in lifestyle or condition. However, when you're retaining excess fluids and holding more water weight than usual, it can make you feel insecure and pudgy, very unlike how you want to feel each day. It's important if you have a history of kidney disease, diabetes or other cardiovascular conditions you work with your physician to discuss the proper diet and medication regimen to prevent fluid retention which can often be very uncomfortable too.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you notice that your body is swelling at times, without a reasonable cause, it can simply be excess fluid due to a change in lifestyle.
  • Understanding what can trigger such water weight can help you decrease inflammation and swelling all around.
  • Holding excess fluid doesn't equate to pounds, so sometimes you might feel larger than you really are simply because of the appearance of the fluid itself on the exterior of the skin.

""If you're eating a high sugar diet, which will even include natural sources, such as fresh fruit, you might be holding on to excess fluids.""

Thedocumentary, Ride the Tiger: A Guide Through the Bipolar Brain, focused on current concepts treatment. Drugs available don't work in all patients and lifestyle changes are recommended when possible. It's recommended that bipolar patients and people suffering from other disorders There has been some positive outcomes from devices using light and magnets to stimulate the brain but a healthy diet, exercise, vitamin supplements and probiotics can address these disorders. Patients have also received benefits through exercise and proper sleep patterns. Doing all this, patients have found they can slowly get off their drug treatment regimens.

Key Takeaways:

  • An estimated 5.1 million Americans have bipolar disorder, which is characterized by unusual and typically dramatic shifts in mood and energy.
  • While medication is typically the first-line of treatment for bipolar and other mental illnesses, they can take up to two months to work and are often frustratingly ineffective.
  • Scientists are also turning to more novel strategies like optogenetics in an effort to control the illness, seeking ways to possibly “preempt, fix or rewire” the patient’s brain back to normal.

""By seeking to understand how the bipolar brain malfunctions, researchers believe they can get closer to understanding the inner workings of the brain, potentially unlocking treatments for other types of psychiatric problems as well.""

Subject: Researchers identify how inflammation spreads through the brain after injury





Researchers have identified a new mechanism by which inflammation can spread throughout the brain after injury. This mechanism may explain the widespread and long-lasting inflammation that occurs after traumatic brain injury, and may play a role in other neurodegenerative diseases. This new understanding has the potential to transform how brain inflammation is understood, and, ultimately, how it is treated.

Key Takeaways:

  • The researchers showed that micro-particles derived from brain inflammatory cells are markedly increased in both the brain and the blood following experimental traumatic brain injury (TBI).
  • Research has found that neuroinflammation often goes on for years after TBI, causing chronic brain damage. The researchers say that the micro-particles may play a key role in this process.
  • The researchers studied mice, and found that in animals who had a traumatic brain injury, levels of micro-particles in the blood were much higher. Because each kind of cell in the body has a distinct fingerprint, the researchers could track exactly where the micro-particles came from.

"This new understanding has the potential to transform how brain inflammation is understood, and, ultimately, how it is treated."

Subject: Fructose is generated in the human brain





Fructose has been labeled as one of the sugars to avoid when selecting food at the store. However, a recent study out of Yale has shown that the brain can produce fructose from any sugar that is ingested. Some sugar is fine for a diet, but avoiding fructose will not keep your body free of the chemical. This leads to risk of high blood sugar and other health issues. The study may affect many diets and the understanding of obesity.

Subject: Cholesterol in eggs and egg whites: Understanding the myth





Eating eggs with the yolks as opposed to eating just egg whites can be beneficial. People who consume a moderate amount of eggs have better antioxidant levels and an increase in HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol). Most of the bad press about eggs come from outdated reports. Eggs are full of vitamins and minerals and consuming a whole egg on a daily basis toes not effect your bad cholesterol levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • The amount of cholesterol found in egg whites and egg yolks differs drastically, but there is nutrition to be found in both.
  • The most common recommendation is that adults consume no more than two to six eggs per week, though there is very little scientific evidence that supports this suggestion.
  • While many tend to focus on the cholesterol content of eggs, they are missing out on a host of potential benefits due to the high vitamin and nutrient content of these natural protein sources.

Subject: Link between dietary restriction, longevity examined





The link between dietary restriction and longevity has been examined. Research has been done and shows that cutting back on calories can actually expand the life span of roundworms. This is important because it shows that we can enhance our health and not have to put huge dietary restrictions on ourselves.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists at the MDI Biological Laboratory have published research which improves the understanding of the mechanisms by which the lifespan of roundworms can be lengthened by cutting back on calories.
  • In a paper recently published in the journal “Aging Cell,” MDI Biological Laboratory scientist Aric Rogers shed light on an important genetic pathway underlying this process, raising the possibility that therapies can be developed that prolong the healthy years.
  • The identification of a mechanism underlying the protective effect of dietary restriction could lead to therapies for age-related diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, that are associated with diminished cellular quality control.

"The life-prolonging effects of dietary restriction, or calorie restriction, occur in just about every animal tested."

Subject: Scientists discover new mechanism of how brain networks form





As long as neurological disorders have been diagnosed, scientists have tried to determine how the brain works in order to better treat them. One thing we do know about the brain is that it creates maps of experiences that help us learn. As we learn, these maps are altered to adapt to our surroundings. Excitatory neurons in the brain have been found to narrow their scope upon learning new information. Inhibitory neurons, conversely, have recently been found to get broader when learning. This new understanding of neurons will go far in efforts to repair brain tissue.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have discovered that networks of inhibitory brain cells or neurons develop through a mechanism opposite to the one followed by excitatory networks.
  • Excitatory neurons sculpt and refine maps of the external world throughout development and experience, while inhibitory neurons form maps that become broader with maturation.
  • Knowing how the normal brain works is an important step toward understanding the nature of neurological conditions and opens the possibility of finding treatments in the future.

Antioxidants- How To Fight With The Free Radicals

Subject: Antioxidants- How To Fight With The Free Radicals

Free radicals are of good concern to any individual who wants to stay healthy. You have possibly heard of how hazardous these substances are and how essential are antioxidants that battle them. Understanding free radicals involves mastering just a little bit about their chemical background. Your body is made up of numerous connected parts. The organs and tissues that form these parts are all made from cells. In original terms, each cell is an independent unit that processes its waste and ingests nutrients, additionally to performing several other functions.


The Chemistry That Drives Our Cells

How do cells perform? The answer varies depending on the distinct cell. Some produce the power utilized to move muscles, and others transport nervous impulses, but all are powered by chemical reactions. These reactions, or interactions among the electrons that surround every atom in the universe, also happen inside our bodies. Without the several various molecules or groups of atoms, that chemical reactions produce, we couldn't survive.

Chemical Reactions: All About Charge

Chemical reactions typically result in bonds between specific molecules, developing compounds like vitamins, minerals along with other substances utilized to construct cells. Reactions take place due to the fact some molecules have positive and negative electrical charges because of the way their electrons are arranged. In most situations, chemical reactions keep occurring until these charges have already been balanced or canceled out completely.


Free Radicals: Unbalanced Products

Occasionally, nonetheless, reactions produce free radicals. In chemical terms, radicals are unbalanced factors. These molecules retain charges for any number of causes, according to the reactions that formed them.

For a reason that charges are what attract atoms to each other, free radicals which have unbalanced charges are reactive. Free radicals are far more likely to bring about chemical changes than other balanced molecules, and these adjustments may be harmful or useful.

Even though some free radicals are necessary for biological functions or take place as intermediate stages of more complex reactions, others sit around with no use, waiting until they make contact with anything they can react with. As your body is a whole mass of atoms and chemical compounds, no cost radicals typically don't have to travel that far to locate something they can mess up.


Free Radicals All Around

An extremely common radical reaction You're possibly familiar with is rusting. Rust is built up as a result of charged oxygen atoms from water reacting with metals, generating corrosive byproducts which are often brown. Although these reactions are fairly a common occurrence in metal in vehicles or appliances, they may also be responsible for the browning you see in sliced apples left exposed to the air.

Rust reactions occur since the oxygen in moisture has a charge. Though water is a complete molecule, its unbalanced, or polarized, form means that it tends to react, coming apart easily to leave charged oxygen behind. This oxygen joins with the metal molecules inside your body just as simply as it does those in a piece of iron. When your body could not become a rusted hulk of an old ship, it undergoes internal alterations.

Subject: How Oxidative Stress Affects Multiple Sclerosis





People who suffer from multiple sclerosis has many things to deal with. This disease is a horrible crippling disease, and researchers are trying to figure out what role oxidative stress plays in the progression of this disease. Once researchers can figure this out they may have a better understanding of potential treatments.

Key Takeaways:

  • Antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, berries, and juices have typically been used to neutralize free radicals and prevent the damage they cause.
  • One molecule of antioxidants from these sources neutralizes one free radical.
  • However, there is a tipping point where the antioxidants are inadequate to take care of the damage, and additional help is needed.

Subject: Honeybee memories: Another piece of the Alzheimer's puzzle?





A recent study at the University of Queensland has set out to research how Alzheimer’s can affect memory by studying how honeybees create and forget memories. They found that honeybees have an amazing memory. Not only can they remember where a food source was once found, but they also can orient themselves based on landmarks and remember how good the source was. The theory was that methylation of DNA is a molecular change in the brain that causes memories to be formed. By preventing some bees from being able to methylate, they were able to prevent them from forming memories.

Key Takeaways:

  • A breakdown of memory processes in humans can lead to conditions such as Alzheimer's and dementia.
  • New research exploring the simpler brain of a honeybee moves us a step towards understanding the different processes behind long-term memory formation.
  • Understanding their brain functions may allow us, in the future, to develop treatments for brain diseases that also develop over a lifetime.

"Scientists know that when a memory is formed, molecular changes can trigger physical changes to the brain, including new or altered neural connections and activity."
