Vegetable Compound Could Have a Key Role in ‘Beeting’ Alzheimer’s Disease

American Chemical Society (ACS)

A compound in beets that gives the vegetable its distinctive red color could eventually help slow the accumulation of misfolded proteins in the brain, a process that is associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists say this discovery could lead to the development of drugs that could alleviate some of the long-term effects of the disease, the world’s leading cause of dementia.
