(Newswire.net — April 24, 2018) Orlando, FL — Turmeric is believed to be one of the oldest and most popular therapeutic ingredients. It has been associated with a myriad of health benefits, such as those beneficial for brain health.

Turmeric has recently been gaining popularity for its strong brain-enhancing effects. This ancient, medicinal spice has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. It is known for the curcumin it contains. Curcumin is a phytochemical that contains a variety of healing agents, such as antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antiseptic, anticoagulant, antimicrobial and anticarcinogenic properties.

The Journal of Psychopharmacology published a remarkable study titled “Investigation of the effects of solid lipid curcumin on cognition and mood in healthy older population”.

This study reveals that the curcumin in turmeric could aid in enhancing cognition and mood in elderly adults, such as those who are 60 to 85 years old. The researchers further added that the improvements could take place when curcumin was administered in chronic, short-term (acute), or short-term-on-chronic dosage schedules.

In the study, there were 60 healthy adults who took curcumin. It was found that after an hour of taking curcumin, they achieved significant improvements in their performance on working memory tasks as well as sustained attention compared to the placebo.

It is further worth mentioning that the chronic treatment schedule, which lasted for four weeks, resulted in the improvement of mood and working memory. The subjects also revealed that they were able to experience a positive change in the state of their contentedness, calmness and fatigue, which were induced by psychological stress. It was also noted that acute-on-chronic treatment led to an improvement in alertness and contentedness.

The brain-health-boosting effects of curcumin may be due to its ability to inhibit the amyloid pathology, which is a degenerative brain plaque type that is normally found in Alzheimer’s disease. This phytochemical could also offer protection against oxidative stress and reduce inflammation.

Curcumin has further been found to be neuroprotective as it promotes neurogenesis and neuropalasticity. This amazingly therapeutic ingredient has further been found to enhance the functioning of neurotransmitters.

Turmeric can be added in many types of dishes and beverages to take advantage of its healing effects. Consumers may also take into account the use of curcumin supplements, which has long been thought to be effective in delivering the therapeutic properties of the phytochemical.

Divine Bounty Curcumin supplement is thought to be extremely helpful in providing consumers with the healing potentials of the phytochemical. It is easy to swallow and even contains black pepper extract, which increases curcumin absorption inside the body.
