Public Release: 

A new idea of Radix Achyranthis Bidentatae in the treatment of senile dementia

Neural Regeneration Research

A research team from the School of Basic Medical Sciences, Beijing University of Chinese Medicine reports that Radix Achyranthis Bidentatae can inhibit advanced glycation end product formation, reduce their levels in the frontal cortex, and improve learning and memory capabilities in ovariectomized rats. The Radix Achyranthis Bidentatae inhibitory effect on advanced glycation end product accumulation is associated with an antioxidative effect. These novel findings, published in the Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 8, No. 18, 2013), provide insight into the mechanisms of action of Radix Achyranthis Bidentatae.
