Today, a team of talented molecular biology specialists from the Weil Cornell Medical Center presented a new study to examine the relationship between the consumption of a relatively large amount of salt and the accumulation of tau proteins in human brains. It is worth noting that it is the accumulation of this type of protein that is primarily associated with the occurrence and development of various neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's syndrome, and therefore a new study is of fundamental importance in the context of deciphering this relationship. Because a person may have a chance to independently control this risk.
Most cells in the human body produce the so-called nitric oxide, which is necessary for the expansion of blood vessels, which, in turn, contributes to better blood circulation and thus feeds the brain better. However, the previous set of experiments and studies regarding the effect of soda and salt on the level of nitric oxide in the blood showed that people with a markedly higher level of salt intake have a lower expression of this substance in the blood.
Accordingly, the new theory of specialists says that salt can be considered as one of the most revealing and important factors in the development of various neurodegenerative diseases. In addition, the current study of experts casts doubt on the previous theory that the accumulation of tau proteins is reproduced by more complex and complex processes – so that the salt consumed in large volumes may be a consequence of the accumulation of such proteins in itself, regardless of external factors.
Which becomes an excellent motivation to reconsider your dietary habits associated with its use on a daily basis. In addition, a new study can also be very revealing in terms of the need for some significant castling in the manufacture and consumption of certain dishes. However, specialists still have a lot of work to do regarding the correct selection of new data on the proposed issue.
