HedgeApples are a cure for Alzheimers?
The fruit from the bois d'arc tree, commonly known as the Osage Orange tree, contains extraordinary high levels of isoflavone compounds. Isoflavone compounds may play a role in lowering one's risk for heart disease and cancer, ease menopause symptoms and improve bone health. The unique isoflavones from the Osage Orange has been shown to protect brain cells, or neurons from the toxic effect of amyloid beta peptide. Amyloid beta peptide is believe to be responsible for the degeneration of neurons in Alzheimer's patients. However, the precise mechanisms by which the isoflavones block the toxicity of amyloid beta peptide are unknown, according to studies in some laboratories. Soybeans contain less than one-tenth of one percent of isoflavone compounds. By comparison, the dry mass of the Osage Orange hedge balls contain between 5 percent and 10 percent of isoflavone compounds. No known dietary plant contains this high level of isoflavone. The full study from Texas A&M can be read on my blog. http://hedgeapple.blogspot.com/2012/07/hedge-apples-as-cure-for-alzheimers.html

What is ORAC?
ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity. USDA researchers at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, have developed a new laboratory test to measure the oxygen radical absorption capacity of foods and natural substances. Known as the ORAC scale, it is one of the most sensitive and reliable methods for measuring antioxidant capacity. The first test of its kind, the measure gauges both the time and degree of free-radical inhibition. All antioxidant capacity measures are estimated by Ferric Reducing Power and are expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent (TE) per 100 grams (µTE/100 g). The ORAC test is accurate to +/- 5%.
