Fenchol’s Potential: A New and Promising Defense against Alzheimer’s Disease

Basil’s Natural Compound May Protect Against Alzheimer’s Disease

The USF Center for Microbiome Research, which is directed by Hariom Yadav PhD, Professor of Neurosurgery and Brain Repair at the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine where he also directs, was the first study to demonstrate that the stimulation of FFAR2 sensed mechanism can protect brain cells from toxic accumulation of amyloid-beta protein (Ab).

Researchers from the University of South Florida Health suggest that fenchol, an abundant natural compound found in many plants, including basil, may help protect against Alzheimer’s pathology.

A new study, published on October 5, in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience explains that the gut microbiome is a sensor which explains why fenchol can reduce neurotoxicity in Alzheimer’s brain.
