Scientists say, asparagine, which is found in meat products, it is necessary for the brain. This amino acid, in addition to meat, found in eggs and dairy products, writes The Indian Express. The importance of this compound was confirmed by scientists from the University of Montreal.
The brain can function without asparagine. Its penetration through barriers is not so easy, and the amount of the final product, which is delivered to the nerve tissue, not so much. However, this connection protects the brain from congenital microcephaly, reduces the risk of developing mental incapacity and refractory seizures.
Scientists have discovered a genetic link, which is responsible for the synthesis of asparagine. Lack of the enzyme synthetase, which helps develop connections, leads to the above consequences. The optimal concentration of asparagine is the guarantee of health of brain neurons.
