Curcumin (Turmeric) May Help Memory and Brain Function

Curcumin or Turmeric Found In Study To Help Memory and Brain Function

Curcumin is the spice used in Indian foods known as a curry powder.  Turmeric has been used as a food flavoring, preservative, and an herbal remedy for arthritis, cancer, and cardiac and other medical conditions.  Curcumin gives curry its yellow color.  The spice has a distinct flavor when used for cooking and has been used for centuries in Indian cultures.   Indian food

A recent 18-month study found evidence that this spice may be helpful in memory of non-dementia patients.   Turmeric reduces inflammation, and brain inflammation has been linked to both Alzheimer disease and major depression.  It also has powerful antioxidant properties, and oxidative stress is central to the early pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease.  Curcumin’s possible brain health benefits also may result from its disruption of the formation, accumulation, and toxicity of amyloid plaques.  Increased activity of white blood cell uptake and ingestion of plaques on the brain. Interaction with such neurotoxic heavy metals as cadmium and lead. It also aids inhibition of cholesterol formation; and decreases in serum peroxides.

We carry this product in our office in a high-quality bioavailable form.

Conclusion

Taking a daily supplement of Theracurmin may help with improved memory and attention in adults that are not suffering from dementia. The FDDNP-PET findings suggest that symptom benefits are associated with decreases in amyloid and tau accumulation in brain regions modulating mood and memory.
