Scientists have known for some time that alpha-synuclein or α-synuclein (for short) plays a role in Parkinson’s disease and many other neurologic ailments. What is α-synuclein exactly? Good question. In-a-word it is one of many proteins in the synuclein family which is expressed in neural tissues and especially neural mitochondria – but whose exact role is unknown. Be this as it may, α-synuclein in both mutated and unmutated forms can aggregate or clump up which results in damage to neurons or even their die-off.
How does one keep α-synuclein in check? One way involves the use of a sugar called Trehalose.
What else can be done to manage α-synuclein…. as well as other know players in the genesis of Parkinsonism, Alzheimer’s and such? There are many dietary, supplement and stem cell treatment measures that can help tremendously. However, few doctors possess the depth of knowledge and experience needed to formulate a program that addresses the patient’s exact risk factors and players. One that does is Dr. Alexander Thermos.
