Herbal Medicine for Treating Alzheimer’s

Herbal Medicine for Treating Alzheimer’s

Researchers at the Iranian Institute of Medicinal Plants affiliated to the Iranian Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research (IACECR) will unveil a type of herbal medicine on Tuesday that can be used in treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. To produce the medicine ‘Melitropic’, a series of tests were conducted on 42 patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s in the age range of 65-80. Patients in the experiment group were given dracocephalum extract and the control group was given placebos. After four months, the result showed that Alzheimer’s was well controlled in those patients who used dracocephalum extract and the anxiety disorder and irritability symptoms were considerably reduced in the experiment group. ‘Melitropic’ is expected to be introduced to global markets after its mass production, Mehr News Agency reported. The herbal medicine will be unveiled on January 24 in the presence of Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi.
