Rosemary chicken protects your brain from free radicals
Date:10/30/2007

rated because it is present in a naturally-occurring herb that is known to get into the brain and has been consumed by people for over a thousand years. Dr. Lipton is also a practicing neurologist at the University of California, San Diego, and therefore knows first-hand that such drugs are critically needed for care of the aging and neurologically-ill patients.

Rosemary is a shrubby evergreen bush and, according to folklore, takes its name from the Virgin Mary, who draped her cloak on the bush, placing a white flower on top of the cloak. By the following morning, the flower had turned blue, and thereafter the plant was known as the Rose of Mary. Rosemary, grown in the Alps since the Middle Ages, has became part of European folk medicine, and was thought to help the nervous system and ward off sickness. Until now, however, the exact chemical pathways involved in its beneficial effects have remained unknown. Additionally, the new scientific work, identifying the compound in rosemary that is beneficial, should allow even better and more effective drugs in this class to be developed in the near future. Along these lines, Satoh and Lipton have filed a United States patent application for a whole series of novel compounds that show increased benefits over rosemary itself. This is not to say that Rosemary chicken is not good for you, said Dr. Satoh, but it means that we can do even better in protecting the brain from terrible disorders such as Alzheimers and Lou Gehrigs disease, perhaps even slowing down the effects of normal aging, by developing new and improved cousins to the active ingredient in rosemary. The authors hope that such drugs can be developed for people over the next few years.
