Japanese traditional therapy holds hope for Alzheimer's and MS

A therapy from Japanese traditional medicine reverses inflammation in the brain, a major factor in Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis (MS)

A therapy from Japanese traditional medicine reverses inflammation in the brain, a major factor in Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis (MS).
Honokiol, which is derived from the bark of the magnolia tree, stops inflammation in the brain, which causes neuronal damage, the genesis of neuro-degenerative diseases.
Scientists at the National Brain Research Centre in Manesar, India discovered that honokiol - which is used in the Japanese traditional therapy, saiboku-to - slows inflammatory processes in the brain.
As it moves easily between the blood-brain barrier, it can treat brain inflammation that's the result of infection as well as from other causes, say the researchers.
