Frank Talk About Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

How Frank May Help Slow or Prevent Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease strikes when neurons in the brain can’t communicate with each other.

Some studies suggest that a major cause may be toxic proteins called ADDLs that bind to synapses in the brain, preventing nerve cells from functioning properly. This causes memory loss.

Oleocanthal, a compound found in extra virgin olive oils like Frank, may prevent this memory loss. Oleocanthal may change the structure of toxic ADDLs so that they can’t bind to synapses. No binding to synapses, no nerve cell damage, no memory loss, no Alzheimer’s.

There’s more to learn about how Alzheimer’s works, and these tests were conducted on oleocanthal, not on olive oil itself. But the study is encouraging for olive oil’s potential impact.

How Frank May Help Slow or Prevent Parkinson’s

Nobody’s sure what causes Parkinson’s disease. But Parkinson’s rates are sharply higher in areas where certain chemical insecticides and herbicides are sprayed. This suggests that these chemicals may cause or accelerate Parkinson’s disease.

We don’t know for certain whether the levels of insecticides and herbicides found in our conventionally raised food are high enough to cause, or speed, Parkinson’s disease. The amounts present in the air where spraying occurs are much higher than what we find in our food. But we do know that agricultural chemicals get into our bodies through the food we eat. And it may be better to avoid those chemicals until we know more about the causes of Parkinson’s.

How do you avoid ingesting insecticides and herbicides? Eating organic food has been shown to virtually eliminate levels of these chemicals in our bodies.

Frank’s Antioxidants May Help Slow or Prevent Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s strikes when nerve cells in your brain stop producing enough dopamine.

Your brain uses dopamine to tell your muscles when to move. When there’s not enough dopamine, you can get the tremors, stiff muscles and slow unbalanced movements that mark Parkinson’s.

And oxidation can harm dopamine-producing cells. Oxidation happens when free radicals steal electrons from, or unload them on, cells. Free radicals do this because they have either an extra electron or a missing one.

It’s not clear that oxidative damage is what causes Parkinson’s, but some studies suggest that it may. And antioxidants can prevent this damage from ever occurring. Antioxidants can give an electron to a free radical that needs one, or take one away from a free radical that needs to get rid of one. The antioxidant itself then suffers damage, but your cells do not.

There’s great debate over the role of antioxidants in preventing or fighting certain diseases, including Parkinson’s. We need more information. But there are some strong suggestions that antioxidants may play a role.

Organic extra virgin olive oils like Frank have more antioxidants than any other vegetable oil. Capture the many possible health benefits and take Frank home today!
