TEHRAN, Jan. 21 (Press Shia) – Researchers at Iranian Institute of Medicinal Plants will unveil on Tue. a type of herbal medicine ‘Melitropic’ that can be used in treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

The researchers used ancient and indigenous knowledge of the Iranian land in treatment of brain problems and conducted extensive research on the latest studies in the world on this subject to produce, for the very first time, a valuable herbal medicine that helps with treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

For studies on the production of this medicine, a series of experiments were conducted on 42 patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s in the age range of 65-80. The patients in the experiment group were given dracocephalum extract and the control group was given placebos.
