Plaque-forming neutrophil elastase in the human body (and brain) are proteases. The naturally occurring protein AAT is a protease inhibitor. This protease inhibitor can and does break the blood-brain barrier, stopping the formation of specific plaques in the brain and the entire body. The interruption of the formation of Net Extracellular Traps (NET's) throughout the brain, and the circulatory system with AAT, can improve the overall long-term health of the young and old alike.
