Extra Virgin Olive Oil
You may not have heard of them before but ADDLs (or amyloid B-derived diffusible ligands) are Alzheimer’s-inducing proteins
that are toxic to the brain. In the initial stages of the disease they attach to brain cells rendering them unable to communicate
with one another and eventually leading to memory loss. Extra virgin olive oil may be a potent foe against ADDLs according
to research conducted at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, PA last year. It’s rich in oleocanthal, a compound
that disables dangerous ADDLs.
