A group of researchers from the University of Malakand, Karachi University, and Kohat University of Science and Technology in Pakistan showed that Nonea micrantha Bioss. & Reut is potentially effective against neurodegenerative disorders. The study, which was published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, looked into the anticholinesterase and antioxidant activity of N. micrantha extracts.
These results showed that N. micrantha contains antioxidant and anticholinesterase compounds that can be isolated and further investigated for use in treatments against neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amnesia, and dementia.
