How dietary phenolics delay neurodegenerative diseases
It is believed that a diet rich in phenolics delays neurodegenerative diseases in the ageing population. However, the mechanistic actions of phenolics in brain health remain under examination. The EU-funded LIMBo project aims to analyse the ability of dietary phenolics to prevent and delay neuroinflammation, a central process in neurodegenerative diseases. The project will focus on metabolites derived from dietary phenolics by investigating their effects in both the established and unknown pathways of microglia cells. LIMBo will deliver essential knowledge that improves understanding of the diversity of phenolic metabolites, their specific impact on neuroinflammation and the potential use as pro-drugs. Moreover, it will produce valuable scientific insights for future implementation of healthy brain diets.
