Has there been discussion re: BACE 2? Just got and e-mail from Mayo in FL about this.

BACE2 apparently increases the breakdown of beta amyloid.

Not sure how or if you can increase the production of this enzyme in the brain.  I put this in the category of so many other research reports on Alzheimer's disease--useful but not in the short-term and perhaps not in the long-term, helpful.
