Orlando, FL — March 22, 2016 — Since time immemorial, people belonging to different cultures from around the world have been using medicinal spices such as turmeric. This ancient spice is believed to have the ability to repair certain damages in different areas of the body.
New research finds turmeric to be potentially useful in the regeneration of the damaged brain. Curcumin, which is a phytochemical found in turmeric, is believed to be the major source of the spice’s therapeutic benefits.
“Today, more and more people are using curcumin supplements to fight a range of conditions,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
The journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy published a new study. It was found that another active ingredient of turmeric called Ar-tumerone has the potential to provide promising results in the regeneration of the damaged brain.
The study’s title is “Aromatic-turmerone induces neural stem cell proliferation in vitro and in vivo.” It was the German researchers who assessed the effects of Ar-turmerone on neural stem cells (NSCs). This is a subgroup of brain cells that has the ability to self-renew, which is vital for brain repair.
According to the study, when the brain cells were exposed to ar-turmerone, there was an increase in the number of neural stem cells through enhanced proliferation. It was also found that the neural stem cells, which were newly formed, were also able to increase the number of fully differentiated neuronal cells. This indicates that the healing effects of turmeric are already taking place.
In a study involving a live animal model, it was found that rats with brains treated with ar-turmerone experienced an increase in neural stem cell proliferation. It has also resulted in the creation of newly formed healthy brain cells.
The database of greenmedinfo.com contains an extensive range of studies about a myriad of natural remedies. It provides more than 1600 study abstracts on the healing properties of turmeric.
This medicinal spice is even found to fight hundreds of different diseases that are extremely prevalent nowadays. It is used by many people from around the world in reducing their risk of various conditions.
Turmeric has long been believed to be beneficial for the brain. It is even thought to be an effective natural remedy in fighting Alzheimer’s disease, which is a prevalent condition.
Today, turmeric can be purchased at grocery stores. There are also curcumin supplements that are thought to deliver a myriad of therapeutic benefits. Those who want to take advantage of its healing effects may do so through supplementation (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
