Additional recommended knowledge
Scyllitol is a naturally occurring plant sugar alcohol found most abundantly in the coconut palm.
JoAnne McLaurin, Peter St. George-Hyslop, and colleagues at the University of Toronto have found scyllo-inositol (also called "scyllitol") when fed to transgenic mice that exhibit a memory disease very similar to human Alzheimer's disease, can block the accumulation of soluble amyloid-beta (Aβ) plaques in the brain. The research team found that scyllitol reversed memory deficits in the mice, reduce the amount of Aβ plaque in the brains of the mice, and reversed other symptoms associated with the presence of Aβ in the brain.
