Orlando, FL — June 01, 2016 — Turmeric is one of the most popular ancient, medicinal spices nowadays. It is widely used by individuals who suffer from arthritis pain and inflammation. There is a myriad of health conditions that turmeric is believed to be effective in fighting off, and it includes neurological problems.
Turmeric is one of the natural remedies against Alzheimer’s disease. This condition is highly prevalent among the elderly population. There are many medications used for Alzheimer’s disease, and there are also natural remedies such as curcumin.
“Turmeric contains a powerful healing, phytochemical curcumin,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Curcumin contains a variety of healing substances, which are thought to be responsible for its powerful therapeutic effects. Some of these substances are the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.
According to Wellington Pham, Ph.D, assistant professor of Radiology and Radiological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering, curcumin can penetrate the brain as well as bind and destroy beta-amyloid plaques, which are typically found in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.
He is the senior author of the study, which was published recently in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. When protein fragments called beta-amyloid is accumulated and aggregated, it promotes the irreversible loss of neurons in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.
Pham and colleagues are from the Shiga University of Medical Science. They came up with a new technique to transmit a molecule that is more beneficial to the brain. It is believed that this molecule is similar to curcumin.
They also noted that there are challenges in treating Alzheimer’s disease. One is to identify the method that can deliver drugs across the brain’s blood barrier. This blood barrier works by protecting the brain from toxic molecules, which are believed to be harmful for neurons.
Today, more and more people are looking for natural alternatives for pharmaceutical drugs. Curcumin supplements are believed to be one of the most popular medicinal spices. Its use is believed to help improve neurological health.
Curcumin supplements are widely available nowadays. It has been a subject of many studies conducted by researchers and scientists who are aiming to find cures for a range of conditions.
While curcumin is thought to be highly therapeutic, it has low bioavailability. This limits the delivery of its nutrients inside the body. The good news is that there are curcumin supplements with BioPerine.
BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract, is a bioavailability enhancing ingredient. It is thought to increase curcumin absorption inside the body (www.amazon.com/tumeric-with-black-pepper/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
