A Small Dose of Turmeric Boosts Working Memory in Pre-Diabetic Individuals


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/28/2015 -- Diabetes is one of the most prevalent diseases that many people are trying to protect themselves from. There are many ways to combat diabetes, and one is to use a natural alternative that is believed to offer a wide variety of health benefits.

A small dose of turmeric is believed to be helpful for boosting the working memory of pre-diabetic individuals. Turmeric is one of the most popular natural alternatives nowadays, and its use is associated with a wide range of health benefits. While it is widely used by individuals who suffer from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, there are an increasing number of people who are using it to improve their overall health.

"Turmeric contains an ingredient called curcumin that is believed to have high levels of therapeutic properties, including but not limited to, anti-bacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substances," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

The Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a recent study called "Turmeric Improves Post-Prandial Working Memory in Pre-Diabetes Independent of Insulin". It revealed that turmeric has a unique therapeutic profile that is believed to help with the prevention of cognitive impairment associated with dementia and pre-diabetes.

The study involved 48 individuals who were 60-year olds and who had newly recognized but untreated pre-diabetes. There was a random distribution of turmeric and cinnamon during breakfast together with white bread. It was found that adding 1 gram of turmeric has helped improved working memory in a span of 6 hours among older individuals with pre-diabetes. Surprisingly, this was not the case among those who received the 2 g cinnamon.

There is actually a rapidly growing interest in turmeric as a regenerative and tonic agent for brain conditions. Turmeric's potential therapeutic benefits can possibly change the life of many people, especially since there is an increased prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative conditions. There is also an alarming increase in brain cancer cases and metabolic dysregulations linked with type 2 diabetes, which can cause cognitive impairment.

Turmeric is widely available in the market in a form of powder and as supplements. While it is widely used as a pain relief option and an alternative to NSAID drugs, which are pain relief medications, there are individuals who use it to address certain medical conditions. There are those who incorporate turmeric powder in their diet by adding it in their food or beverages, and there are also those who simply use curcumin supplements (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
