Study Finds Beer Compound to Protect the Brain, Prevent Alzheimer’s

by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:

Recent research has given us at least one good to drink some brew. The new study has identified a compound in hops known as xanthohumol (or Xn) which has been shown to improve cognitive function and help slow dementia. In other words, the scientists suggest that people who regularly drink beer might be better able to ward off the progression of neurological diseases.

The study, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, states:

“Xanthohumol…a polyphenol chalcone from hops…has received increasing attention due to its multiple pharmacological activities. As an active component in beers, its presence has been suggested to be linked to the epidemiological observation of the beneficial effect of regular beer drinking…Our results demonstrate that Xn is a novel small-molecule activator of Nrf2 in neuronal cells and suggest that Xn might be a potential candidate for the prevention of neurodegenerative disorders.”
