Book Description :

Role of the Mediterranean Diet in the Brain and Neurodegenerative Disease provides a comprehensive overview of the effects of all components of the Mediterranean diet on the brain, along with its beneficial effects in neurodegenerative diseases. It covers topics on neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer disease (AD), Parkinson disease, (PD) Huntington disease (HD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also providing information on how cardiovascular disease, Type 2 Diabetes, and Metabolic Syndrome become risk factors for neurodegenerative diseases. This book focuses on how the Mediterranean diet suppresses oxidative stress and neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative diseases as well as signal transduction. The Mediterranean diet is characterized by the abundant consumption of olive oil, high consumption of plant foods (fruits, vegetables, pulses, cereals, nuts and seeds); frequent and moderate intake of wine (mainly with meals); moderate consumption of fish, seafood, yogurt, cheese, poultry and eggs; and low consumption of red meat and processed meat products. High consumption of dietary fiber, low glycemic index and glycemic load, anti-inflammatory effects, and antioxidant compounds may act together to produce favorable effects on health status. Collective evidence suggests that Mediterranean diet not only increases longevity by lowering cardiovascular disease, inhibiting cancer growth, but also by protecting the body from age-dependent cognitive decline. Comprehensively provides an overview of the effects of the Mediterranean diet on the brain and its beneficial effects in neurodegenerative diseases Discusses the relationship among Type 2 Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Alzheimer's Disease, and the effect of the Mediterranean diet on normal aging, longevity, and other neurodegenerative diseases Focuses on how the Mediterranean diet suppresses oxidative stress and neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative disease

Book Description :

Neuroinflammatory processes in the brain are believed to play a crucial role in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, especially due to increased production of reactive oxygen species. The brain is susceptible to oxidative stress more than other organs due to the low activity of antioxidant defense systems. In agreement with these observations, increased oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, ischemic diseases and aging. The Mediterranean diet is inspired by the traditional dietary pattern of some countries of the Mediterranean basin. From ancient times, these populations were characterized by simple food habits as high intake of whole cereals (pasta, bread, rice), fruits and vegetables (up to 400 g day−1 in Greece), legumes and fish, olive oil as the common source of fats, poor intake of meat and dairy products and a moderate, regular wine drinking. In the present chapter, there are going to be presented some bioactive substances present in the Mediterranean diet related to the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases. These substances are able to exert important antioxidant activity (through mechanisms such as sequestration of free radicals, inhibition of the production of hydrogen peroxide, activation of endogenous defense mechanisms.

Book Description :

Oxidative Stress and Dietary Antioxidants in Neurological Diseases provides an overview of oxidative stress in neurological diseases and associated conditions, including behavioral aspects and the potentially therapeutic usage of natural antioxidants in the diet. The processes within the science of oxidative stress are described in concert with other processes, such as apoptosis, cell signaling, and receptor mediated responses. This approach recognizes that diseases are often multifactorial and oxidative stress is a single component of this. The book examines basic processes of oxidative stress—from molecular biology to whole organs—relative to cellular defense systems, and across a range of neurological diseases. Sections discuss antioxidants in foods, including plants and components of the diet, examining the underlying mechanisms associated with therapeutic potential and clinical applications. Although some of this material is exploratory or preclinical, it can provide the framework for further in-depth analysis or studies via well-designed clinical trials or the analysis of pathways, mechanisms, and components in order to devise new therapeutic strategies. Very often oxidative stress is a feature of neurological disease and associated conditions which either centers on or around molecular and cellular processes. Oxidative stress can also arise due to nutritional imbalance during a spectrum of timeframes before the onset of disease or during its development. Offers an overview of oxidative stress from molecular biology to whole organs Discusses the potentially therapeutic usage of natural antioxidants in the patient diet Provides the framework for further in-depth analysis or studies of potential treatments

Book Description :

The purpose of this monograph is to present readers with a comprehensive and cutting edge description of neurochemical effects of diet (beneficial and harmful effects) in normal human brain and to discuss how present day diet promotes pathogenesis of stroke, AD, PD, and depression in a manner that is useful not only to students and teachers but also to researchers, dietitians, nutritionists and physicians. A diet in sufficient amount and appropriate macronutrients is essential for optimal health of human body tissues. In brain, over-nutrition, particularly with high-calorie diet, not only alters cellular homeostasis, but also results in changes in the intensity of signal transduction processes in reward centers of the brain resulting in food addiction. Over-nutrition produces detrimental effects on human health in general and brain health in particular because it chronically increases the systemic and brain inflammation and oxidative stress along with induction of insulin resistance and leptin resistance in the brain as well as visceral organs. Onset of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress not only leads to obesity and heart disease, but also promotes type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which are risk factors for both acute neural trauma (stroke) and chronic age-related neurodegenerative and neuropsychological disorders, such as Alzheimer disease (AD), Parkinson disease (PD) and depression.

Book Description :

Shedding pounds is the primary goal of most diet plans, especially when it comes to fad detoxes and cleanses. Nevertheless, not everyone on a diet wants to lose weight. Various diets can produce different results. You may consider trying your MIND diet, which is related to slower cognitive decline if you are hoping to improve your brain health and to prevent the start of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease - a gradual and debilitating memory loss and confusion-causing neurodegenerative disease - is affecting 5.8 million Americans and, according to the Alzheimer's Association, the most common type of dementia. In the United States, it is the sixth-largest cause of death, with one in 3 people dying of Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Although there is no research linking the MIND diet with Alzheimer's reversal, there is plenty of evidence to support the connection between this dietary approach and disease prevention. For years, doctors have said that what you eat will affect your heart's health. There is now growing proof that the brain is the same. A recent research study at the Chicago Rush University Medical Center indicates that a diet plan that they have created - the correct MIND diet - will minimize the risk of Alzheimer's disease by as much as 53%. For those who didn't stick entirely to the diet but "moderately well" followed, it decreased their risk of Alzheimer's by about a third. The good health of the brain at any age partially depends on diet and food choices. Knowing the top brain-healthy foods (and foods from which they stay) will protect your brain in the long term. It incorporates several elements of two other popular eating plans that have been shown to support heart health: the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet. (MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH neurodegenerative delay intervention.) The MIND diet, however, also varied greatly from such strategies and was more effective than in decreasing the risk of Alzheimer's disease. The Mediterranean diet is the winner in terms of heart health. The DASH diet is the safest option for high blood pressure patients. These diets have shown a certain capacity to defend the brain against cognitive deterioration. Today, a diet consisting of brain-beneficial foods seems to help shield stroke survivors from dementia within ten years of their stroke. The diet of Mediterranean-DASH for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) stresses the use of certain foods that have all been related to slower cognitive deterioration in medical trials. It also refers to food classes to be avoided based on adverse brain effects.

Book Description :

Age-related decline in cognitive function manifests as decrease in attention, working memory, long-term memory, perception, in addition to defective speech and language, decision making, and executive control.Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is characterized by subnormal cognitive performance, especially in terms of memory. According to the International Working Group on MCI, individuals with MCI show evidence of cognitive decline, despite normal activities of daily living. Nearly a third of all patients with MCI develop dementia within 2 years,A fifth of all patients with MCI develop Alzheimer's disease (AD) within 2 years after diagnosis. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most prevalent neurodegenerative disease. It is prevalent in 5-10% of people aged 65 years and older and almost 50% of patients over 80.AD accounts for 60%-80% of all dementia cases including nearly 46.8 million people worldwide, with an expected 131.5 million cases by 2050.While drugs may have the risk of side effects, nutritional approaches appear to be a superior and promising strategy in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as AD. Poor nutrition is strongly linked to AD. Hence the use of functional foods, dietary supplements and nutraceuticals is proposed to be an effective therapeutic intervention in the management of AD. Recent studies have focused on the use of dietary supplements and natural products with multiple neuroprotective activities, which pose little or no side effects compared to synthetic drugs. In this book, we will review some of the most significant research involving nutritional strategies targeting AD. The work includes several original research studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals over the recent past (5 years), and copius references to highlight the evidence supporting or discouraging the use of dietary and nutritional interventions in an effort to manage AD. The following topics are discussed in detail with all the cutting-edge scientific evidence, and comprehensive lists of references for further study or research.Nutrition and Aging: Focus on Alzheimer's Disease Synchronizing an Aging Brain: Can Entraining Circadian Clocks by Food Slow Alzheimer's Disease ?

Book Description :

Recent large-scale epidemiological studies have confirmed the pre-eminence of the Mediterranean diet for reducing the risk of primary and secondary heart disease and cancer. There is also increasingly convincing evidence for its protective value against diabetes, dementias and other age-related disorders, and for increasing overall longevity. The Mediterranean Diet: Health and Science is a timely, authoritative and accessible account of the Mediterranean diet for nutritionists and dieticians. It discusses the Mediterranean diet in the light of recent developments in nutritional biochemistry, disease mechanisms and epidemiological studies, and also provides advice on nutrition policies and interventions. The Mediterranean Diet: Health and Science opens with an overview of the Mediterranean diet, and this is followed by a survey of the latest epidemiological evidence for its health benefits. There is detailed nutritional information on olive oil, wine, fish, fruit and vegetables and other components of the Mediterranean diet, and this information is used to explain how the diet protects against a range of age-related diseases. The book emphasises the importance of understanding the Mediterranean diet in its totality by discussing the evidence for beneficial interactions between various components of the diet. There are also discussions of how agricultural practices, as well as food preparation and cooking techniques, influence the nutritional quality of the diet. The book concludes by discussing the social context in which the Mediterranean diet is eaten, and public health issues associated with adopting a Mediterranean diet, especially in the context of more northerly countries. Written by nutritional biochemist Richard Hoffman and a past President of the French Nutrition Society, Mariette Gerber, who between them have many years experience in this area, this exciting and highly topical boook is an essential purchase for all nutritionists and dietitians worldwide. Libraries in all universities where nutrition, dietetics and food science and technology are studied and taught should have copies of this excellent book on their shelves.

Book Description :

Diet and exercise have long been recognized as important components of a healthy lifestyle, as they have a great impact on improving cardiovascular and cerebrovascular functions, lowering the risk of metabolic disorders, and contributing to healthy aging. As a greater proportion of the world’s population is living longer, there has been increased interest in understanding the role of nutrition and exercise in long-term neurological health and cognitive function. Diet and Exercise in Cognitive Function and Neurological Diseases discusses the role and impact that nutrition and activity have on cognitive function and neurological health. The book is divided into two sections. The first section focuses on diet and its impact on neurobiological processes. Chapters focus on the impacts of specific diets, such as the Mediterranean, ketogenic and vegan diets, as well as the role of specific nutrients, fats, fatty acids, and calorie restriction on neurological health and cognitive function. The second section of the book focuses on exercise, and its role in maintaining cognitive function, reducing neuroinflammatory responses, regulating adult neurogenesis, and healthy brain aging. Other chapters look at the impact of exercise in the management of specific neurological disorders such Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease. Diet and Exercise in Cognitive Function and Neurological Diseases is a timely reference on the neurobiological interplay between diet and exercise on long-term brain health and cognitive function.
