PTS, Inc. (PTSH) New Study Show Promising Effects of Cinnamon in the Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease

HENDERSON, NEVADA, June 26, 2013 - Pts Inc. (PTSH) www.ptspi.com

A new study suggests that cinnamon may help delay the onset or ward off the effect of Alzheimer’s disease. The study entitled Interaction of Cinnamaldehyde and Epicatechin with Tau: Implications of Beneficial Effects in Modulating Alzheimer's Disease Pathogenesis has been published in the online early edition of the Journal Of Alzheimer’s Disease, Volume 36 Issue 1. Roshni Georges and Donald Graves, scientists at University of California, Santa Barbara`have identified 2 compounds found in cinnamon- Cinnamaldehyde and Epicatechin- both which show promise in fighting the disease. According to the study, these compounds have been shown to prevent the development of filamentous ‘tangles’ that are found in the brain cells that characterize Alzheimer’s disease.

A protein in the brain called Tau has been identified as playing a large role in the onset of the disease. When this protein does not bind properly to microtubules that form the cell’s structure, insoluble fibres can form in the neuron’s. The use of cinnamaldehyde, the compound responsible for the bright, sweet smell of cinnamon, has proven effective in preventing the tau knots. By protecting tau from oxidative stress, the compound, an oil, could inhibit the protein's aggregation. To do this, cinnamaldehyde binds to two residues of an amino acid called cysteine on the tau protein. The cysteine residues are vulnerable to modifications, a factor that contributes to the development of Alzheimer's.

Michael Arnkvarn, CEO states, ``We have known that our CinG-X product could help with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease through our own research. It is very exciting to see additional scientific evidence to support our affirmations. This research will help educate our aging population on the multiple benefits of taking CinG-X on a daily basis’
