A possible mechanistic link between stress and the development of Alzheimer tangles
...RFR2, which are part of a central switchboard that mediates
the bodys responses to stress and stress-related disorders. Alzheimers disease is defined by the accumulation of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. While plaques accumulate outside of brain cells, tangles litter the inside of neurons. T...

...antioxidants and D-chiro-inositol, a molecule that mediates
insulin activity. Boosting insulin levels has the effect of lowering blood sugar levels, which reduces levels of oxidative oxygen species that damage beta-cell membranes, preventing further damage and allowing for some regeneration. Beta cells levels...
