Abstract:   (3320 Views)
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive form of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. This disease is associated with profound effects on intelligence, self-care, speech impairment, and dysfunction, motor functional and cognitive impairment. This letter discusses some of the most important herbal plants used for Alzheimer's disease. Herbs such as Petroselinum crispum, Thymus vulgaris, Hypericum perforatum, Matricaria chamomilla, Salvia officinalis, Allium sativum, Ziziphus jujube, Lavandula officinalis, Curcuma longa, Salvia Rosmarinus and Cyperus rotundus are considered to treat Alzheimer's. Medicinal herbs can be used in the treatment of Alzheimer's and they can be produced in the future as effective natural anti-Alzheimer's drugs.
