Summary "Under the direction of leading experts in oxidative stress, this book addresses cutting-edge areas of research regarding micronutrients and the brain. It discusses identification of brain-specific micronutrients that support function and molecular mechanisms underlying neuroprotectant activity. The book covers age-related metabolic pathways, mitochondrial nutrients, and neurodegeneration. Additional chapters cover flavonoids, cell signaling, and neuronal functions, as well as the role of choline, amino acids, metals, and other micronutrients in brain health and function. The text places a particular emphasis on lipoic acid, which is shown to be a therapeutic agent in neuropathologies."--Publisher's description
