Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2016 -- Curcumin is a phytochemical found in the medicinal, ancient spice called turmeric. This healing ingredient is widely believed to be therapeutic in many areas around the body. Individuals who go through the aging process may benefit from the use of the phytochemical.
A study reveals the potential ability of curcumin to protect the aging brain from dementia. Curcumin is one of the oldest and most therapeutic natural ingredients nowadays. It contains a variety of healing ingredients such as antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
"Curcumin supplements are widely available in the market today," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
The journal called Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry published a study. It revealed that curcumin could potentially help reverse age-related cerebrovascular dysfunction.
In the study, 24-month old rodents were treated with curcumin for one month. The researchers then found that the damage in the cerebrovascular endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation was reversed.
There are about 1597 abstracts on the medicinal value of curcumin and turmeric featured in the GreenMedInfo.com. These abstracts are taken from the National Library of Medicine and feature more than 600 health conditions.
The powerful neuroprotective properties of turmeric make the spice even more popular. The use of this healing ingredient is believed to help significantly improve the condition of people with psychological and behavioral symptoms caused by dementia.
For thousands of years, curcumin has been used by many cultures from around the world. Its therapeutic benefits have been known by the many since time immemorial. Countries such as India, which are huge consumers of turmeric, are believed to have low cases of conditions that affect the brain, including Alzheimer's disease.
"Turmeric's neuroprotective properties may potentially help protect the brain from a range of conditions," added Scott.
Turmeric can be obtained in a powder form or through supplementation. Individuals who want to take advantage of its therapeutic benefits may incorporate turmeric in their dishes. They may also resort to curcumin supplementation.
Curcumin supplements contain high concentrations of curcumin. There are also curcumin supplements that contain BioPerine, which is a back pepper extract.
Curcumin has low bioavailability, and this limits the delivery of its therapeutic properties inside the body. Many of the most trusted herbal supplement manufacturers add on BioPerine on their curcumin supplements to improve efficiency.
BioPerine is a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient. It is believed to work by increasing the absorption of the healing ingredients from curcumin. Thus, curcumin supplements with BioPerine may potentially be more beneficial than the rest (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
