For prevent the heart disease may also be useful sugar, But not the “normal” (refined cane or whatever) that we all use to sweeten coffee and prepare delicious cakes (and certainly not so healthy) But a “prototype” of enriched selenium. The new sugar that protects the heart it was developed by three researchers from Australian chemical, Korin Storkey and Carl Schiesser, University of Melbourne and Michael Davies, the Heart Research Institute in Sydney who have now made formal application to patent this new food.
In presenting the characteristics of the journal Chemical Communications, Scientists do know that their special sugar selenium can act to neutralize the acids ipoalosi, which damage cardiac tissues. When the values of enzyme which regulates the production of these molecules increases, means that the person is at risk of developing coronary artery disease and heart disease, which are also the leading cause of death in Italy and worldwide.
But the compound created by the three chemicals, prevents these acids damage the amino acids in our blood plasma, which would make it really effective as an instrument of prevention of the heart and circulatory problems, especially in cases at risk, because maybe genetically predisposed. In addition, it would not side-effects.
If the three researchers will get the patent, then there should be no problem for the construction of a food pharmacological ready to be marketed. It would certainly be a “good” weapon of prevention, in every sense…
