Healthy Food Onion Protects the brain Neuron Against Anxiety and Depression Induced by Stress

By Kyle J. Norton

Neurological disorders are a class of diseases of the nervous system caused by structural, biochemical or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord or nerves.

Neurodegenerative disease is a type of neurological disorder associated with the progressive loss of neuron in the brain caused by several mechanisms, including toxicity and oxygen deficiency.

Anxiety is a natural response to the stress involved in the feeling of fear of the event and event outcome.

Depression is a common and serious psychological condition associated with the negative feeling, that affects the way of thinking and acting.

Besides neurodegenerative disease, the most common types of neurological disorder are 

epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and migraines.

According to statistics provided by the Psychological Guide, neurological disorders affect millions of people around the world, including 326 million who suffer migraines.
There is no single cause of the neurological disorder. Some researchers suggested that unhealthy lifestyle, genetic preposition, nutrient, infection, and physical injury are some of the most prevalent factors found in most patients.

If you have experienced symptoms of seizures, difficulty reading, and writing, poor cognitive abilities, unexplained pain, muscle weakness, and decreased alertness, mood swing,  depression and delusions, you may have some form of neurological disorder. Please check with your doctor to rule out the possibility

The onion is a plant in the genus Allium, belonging to the family Alliaceae, a close relation of garlic. It is often called the “king of vegetables” because of its pungent taste and found in a large number of recipes and preparations spanning almost the totality of the world’s cultures. 
Depending on the variety, an onion can be sharp, spicy, tangy, pungent, mild or sweet.

On finding a potential compound for the prevention of stress-induced psychological syndromes researchers examined the effects of onion (AC) on single immobilization stress-induced biochemical and behavioral changes.

The experiment included mice in the test group were treated with AC powder (200 mg/kg/day), dissolved in water, while the control group received drinking water for 14 days.

According to the results after 14 days of treament that control and AC treated mice were further divided into unstressed and stressed groups,

* Administration of AC showed significant activity in attenuating the immobilization stress-induced behavioral deficit.

* AC also improved the memory performance was observed in stressed mice in maze test (EPM).

* AC pretreatment group also demonstrated a strong reduction of brain lipid peroxidation, increased antioxidant enzymes (SOD, CAT, GPx) and reduced acetylcholinesterase (AChE) levels.
In other words, the injection of AC inhibited the brain oxidative stress in the tested mice by promoting the production of antioxidants enzymes in the host.

Based on the finding, researchers suggested, “a role of antioxidant enzymes in the attenuation of 2-h stress-induced anxiety and depression, and enhanced cognitive function as well by AC”.
More precisely, AC protected the brain neurons integrity and viability against the parameters induced by stress.
