What they say: Introduction:  

A recent study from the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Pharmacology, Smilow Research Center, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, NYU School of Medicine, 522 First Avenue, New York, NY 10016, USA shows that Running Triggers VGF-Mediated Oligodendrogenesis to Prolong the Lifespan of Snf2h-Null Ataxic Mice. This study was published in the 11 October 2016 issue of the Journal “Cell Reports” by Prof David J. Picketts, Dr. Matías Alvarez-Saavedra and others.


What we say

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports, for the first time, that: Natural produc-derived for brain repair and Lifespan  extension: Thymoquinone, the most abundant component in Black Cumin– Nigella sativa and in Monarda Fistulosa, increases VGF and BDNF expression, promotes Oligodendrocytes (OP) proliferation, triggers myelination on neurons, reverts neural damage, produces antidepressant like effects, and prolongs lifespan via up-regulation of its target gene


From Research Findings to Therapeutic opportunity:

This study suggests a Natural product-based therapy for brain repair and lifespan extension. Thymoquinone, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of VGF and BDNF.

Thereby, it may: 1) promote OP proliferation, 2) trigger myelination on neurons, 3) revert neural damage, 4) confer protection against brain ischemia, 5) promote consolidation of hippocampal memory, 6) produce anti-depressant like effects, 7) enhance glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, 8) decrease stress hormones norepinephrine and epinephrine levels and blood pressure, and finally, as a consequence, 9) prolong lifespan (figures 1-4).

Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Thymoquinone  or its analogue either alone or in combination with other drugs” can be used to promote brain repair, treat neurodegenerative diseases (such as multiple sclerosis), and extend the lifespan of an individual.
