Excess cerebral TNF can cause neuronal inflammation

Excess neuronal TNF – a cytokine (messenger) molecule – can cause inflammation and amyloid deposition. This leads to consideration of anti-TNF agents as potential treatments for inflammation. Palmitoyl ascorbate is a strong anti-TNF substance or scavenger of free radicals – in this case an anti-oxidant. PIPmix contains palmitoyl ascorbate for that reason.

This article Effect of anti-TNF substances on CNS helps to explain what happens.
