Gregory Col, professor of medicine and neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, noted: “The prospect of finding a safe and effective new approach to both prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease is tremendously exciting.”

It’s been speculated that the plant’s compounds protect cells, tissues and arteries against the damaging effects of free radicals in the bloodstream, according to WebMD.
