Microbiome Impacts Alzheimer

Microbiome Impacts Alzheimer

Transferring the intestinal bacteria of mice with Alzheimer’s disease into healthy mice caused the healthy mice to develop more beta-amyloid plaques in the brain. Beta-amyloid plaques are a hallmark sign of Alzheimer’s.  Alzheimer’s disease affects more than 30 million people worldwide and is not a curable disease today.

Educate our members to help them prolong their healthy life is one of our main goal at Healthy Masters.
