Research Suggests Turmeric Is a Powerful Herb for the Brain


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/30/2015 -- Nowadays, there are many things that people can do to improve their brain health and function. One of the most popular ways is to use natural alternatives such as turmeric. There are many health benefits associated with turmeric, and one involves the brain health.

Research suggests that turmeric is a powerful herb for the brain. The high levels of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties it contains are believed to boost brain health. This medicinal, ancient spice has long been used as a natural remedy for a variety of medical conditions, including the preventable and fatal ones.

"Today, curcumin supplements are widely available in the market. Many people, especially those who suffer from arthritis, are using these natural supplements," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to some research studies, the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease is very low in India, which is one of the world's heaviest consumers of turmeric. It is believed that the spice has the ability to prevent amyloid-beta formation. Amyloid-beta is a small protein molecule that is often found in the brain of individuals with Alzheimer's disease. Many scientists find this result promising.

The amyloid-beta is caused by free radicals, and it is believed to be responsible for killing neurons. One study revealed that five curcuminoids out of five can protect the rat cells from the neurotoxicity of amyloid-beta. Another study also found that turmeric can potentially increase the production of new brain cells, which is a process called neurogenesis. This is believed to be beneficial for a person's mental health. The production of new brain cells is believed to aid in the improvement of one's memory, mood, and optimal learning.

One of the most interesting things about this is that this increase production is also believed to promote connections between brain cells. This often leads to an increase in the protection of brain cells from damage as well as the prevention of dementia, major depression, OCD, schizophrenia, and other serious brain illnesses. Using turmeric powder is a good option, but curcumin supplements are considered to be an easier and more effective alternative.

Nowadays, curcumin supplements are widely available in the market. The most recommended curcumin supplements are those that contain BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract. BioPerine is believed to have powerful therapeutic properties that can help increase nutrient absorption inside the body. Experts recommend the use of curcumin supplements that also contain BioPerine (
