Greek sage extracts show promise against alzheimer's, Cyprus researchers find

Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics uncovers neuro-protective potential in Greek sage, paving the way for potential Alzheimer's therapeutics


Scientists from the Neurogenetics Department at the Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics have conducted a study on the positive attributes of Greek sage extracts concerning Alzheimer's Disease.

In the January newsletter from the CING, researchers highlight that medicinal plants, with their health benefits, serve as a vast resource to identify extracts or chemicals with robust neuroprotective potential. Such substances are crucial in countering the neuro-toxicity resulting from beta-amyloid accumulation, a key factor in Alzheimer's.

The research emphasizes Greek sage's neuro-protective potential and endorses its utilization as an antioxidant. The scientists believe that these distinctive properties position Greek sage as a promising candidate for deriving extracts or bio-active substances, potentially leading to formulations with therapeutic benefits against Alzheimer's disease.

The study, titled "Chemical Profiling and Antioxidant and Anti-Amyloid Capacities of Salvia fruticosa Extracts from Greece," is published in the scientific journal Plants. For more details, the research can be accessed here.
