A Promising Neuro-Protective Nutraceutical, Part 1


Luteolin is a promising neuro-protective nutraceutical, with possible applications to a wide variety of disorders: autism, migraines, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), CFS/fibromyalgia, "brain fog,” multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and even cancer. Dr. Theoharis Theoharides is Director of Molecular Immunopharmacology and Drug Discovery at Tufts University School of Medicine. He explains the possible connection between autism and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome: histamine and cytokines disrupt the blood-brain barrier, cause leaky gut, and allow influx of toxins and autoantigens which result in brain inflammation and damage to neural repair mechanisms. Luteolin, a flavonoid found in a variety of plants, offers a means of curbing mast cell activation in the brain. The product NeuroProtek was formulated by Alginot to maximize luteolin's bio-availability for brain applications. Dr. Theoharides describes extensive research which validates the plausibility for use of luteolin in neuro-behavioral disorders; large-scale clinical trials are planned. A new formulation called “BrainGain” promises to amplify luteolin’s protective effects. Click HERE for part 2.
