Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects an estimated 3 million adults and 470,000 children in the U.S. It is characterized by unpredictable, recurrent seizures that can occur when brain cells become hyperactive. This leads to surges of electrical activity that disrupt signaling between brain excitability in the learning and memory region of the brain (the “hippocampus”).

Previous research shows that increases in the protein O-GlcNAcylation are associated with a reduction in the strength of synapses in the hippocampus of the brain, thereby reducing seizures. The latest research shows that the dietary supplement “glucosamine” works to increase O-GlcNAcylation and reduce surges of electrical activity in the hippocampus.

Glucosamine levels are thought to decrease as people get older. The supplement is also used to help ease joint pain and is most commonly used to help people with osteoarthritis.

Why We Keep Kosher

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.
