Evidence continues to mount in support of TUDCA’s potential clinical application as part of a therapeutic approach to the treatment of neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative conditions.
Preclinical studies indicate that fisetin has neurotrophic, cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticarcinogenic effects.
Low-dose combinations of curcumin and EGCG have a beneficial effect on regulating important cancer targets in HepG2 and SW1417 cell lines. The data suggest a supportive role for phytochemicals as complementary treatments to chemotherapy.
Mind–body practices have a variety of health implications, including inflammatory modulation, cognitive improvement, and impact on neurofunction. Some of these effects have been demonstrated through rapidly developing technology and their impact on circulating blood levels of hormones and other molecules. As neurotrophic factors like brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and hormones such as cortisol have been shown to play a role in cognitive function, this pilot study assessed the influence of a mind–body intervention, Qigong, on circulating levels in participants.
Several natural therapies that, in combination with beneficial dietary and lifestyle changes, may be neuroprotective for patients with auto-immune or neuroinflammatory conditions.
