Glucose has been found to improve memory in animals and humans. Animal research has revealed that glucose may improve memory through a facilitation of acetylcholine (ACh) synthesis and release in the brain. This glucose-related memory improvement has prompted research in elderly humans. These studies have shown that the memory-improving action of glucose depends on each individuals' blood glucose regulation. Based on these data, researchers have evaluated the effect of glucose on memory in… CONTINUE READING
