The substance protects the brain from aging, experts say.
American scientists have found that nicotine protects the brain from aging and the development of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. The experiments were performed on mice transmits 24news.com.ua .
Subjects were divided into 4 groups. The first three received different doses of nicotine: small, medium, and high. The last group received no nicotine.
The researchers found that mice who consumed nicotine, demonstrated appetite decrease in direct proportion to the dose of nicotine. Consequently, they are less eaten, and their weight was significantly less than the other experimental. In addition, scientists have found that nicotine slows down the aging process of the brain. This is due to the fact that produces more receptors. Such a process results in that the development of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson slows significantly.
Note that we are talking about pure nicotine as a substance, not cigarettes. Therefore, the researchers asked people not to conclude that smoking is useful. On the basis of nicotine scientists are going to develop a drug that will fight against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson.
