Less nutritious food contributes to a better functioning of the brainLess nutritious food contributes to a better functioning of the brain Less nutritious food contributes to a better functioning of the brain, according to U.S. scientists. Researchers from the University of Florida found that caloric restriction reduces the rate of accumulation in the brain of Wistar rats proteins associated with loss of nerve cells. It was found that the level of protein that protects the nerve cells from death, two times higher in the brain of rats treated with 40% less nutritious diet than the control group. The obtained results help to understand the mechanism not only of normal aging, with its weakening such nervous functions, such as memory and intelligence, but also diseases associated with the loss of excessive amounts of nerve cells (Alzheimer's and Parkinson's). Aging is a complex process, the older the body, especially cells of the nervous system is prone to apoptosis is a genetically programmed cell death. The reason for this can be disease, infections, disorders of DNA. Christian Levenburg, Director of the laboratory of biochemistry of aging in the College of health and human functioning Florida state University, and his colleagues decided to find out how does the calorie restriction diet on aging of nerve cells. According to Dr. Lewenberg, restriction of calorie intake, which began even in the middle of life, promises many benefits. It's not even so much in the improvement of mental capacity, but rather the ability to prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease..
