Research on the cognitive related healing capabilities of Moringa Oleifera (horseradish seeds) has confirmed ancient folklore of this miracle plant, which has been used for thousands of years, to treat cognitive dysfunction. This scientifically proven ability gives new hope for people suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.
Previous research has shown that moringa oleifera is able to alter brain monoamines, which have a role in memory processing. Interestingly, people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease have their monoaminergic systems disturbed. An AD rat model study, investigated whether Moringa oleifera supplementation could alter brain monoamines (norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin) in different areas of the brain affected by AD. They found that after moringa oleifera supplementation, the monoamines levels of the brain regions affected by AD were restored to near control levels.
The hippocampus plays an important role on spatial memory, and people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease have an altered neurogenesis, a process that happens in the hippocampus, by which neurons are generated from neural stem cells and progenitor cells. This dysfunction in the hippocampus is associated with Cognitive Impairment. However, supplementation with Moringa Oleifera leaves, in a rat model research, has discovered that after being administered 100mg/kg, the animals were able to retain and acquire knowledge, which is a proof of the possible neuroprotective effects of Moringa Oleifera.
