Bioactive compound from the Rhodiola plant improves memory

New approach to the treatment of age-related memory loss discovered // Joint press release from LIN and IPB, 25.10.2018

Rhodiola rosea

In an ageing society more and more people suffer from memory disorders. The progressive loss of memory severely impairs the quality of life of those affected. So far, no drugs are known to prevent age-related cognitive decline. For the first time, a study conducted by scientists from the Leibniz Institutes for Neurobiology (LIN) and for Plant Biochemistry (IPB) and published in the journal Science Advances now proves the memory-enhancing effect of a plant ester as an active ingredient from the medicinal plant Rhodiola rosea.
