How WHOLE Turmeric Heals the Damaged Brain

How WHOLE Turmeric Heals the Damaged Brain

Many spices have wonderful medicinal properties, but turmeric really does take the cake. Turmeric is one of the most versatile healing spices in the world!
Researchers have investigated curcumin for its potential role in improving Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and even stroke damage. It can also help promote brain health, in general, courtesy of its potential antioxidant and inflammatory properties.

 

Exciting research published in the Journal Stem Cell Research and Therapy shows that a compound called aromatic turmerone promotes stem cell proliferation and differentiation in the brain, meaning it could be a future treatment for neurological disorders.

“[T]he same research group found that rodent neural stem cells grew when they were bathed in a solution of aromatic-turmerone. The cells bathed in the turmeric compound also appeared to specialize in certain types of brain cells more rapidly.

‘It is interesting that it might be possible to boost the effectiveness of the stem cells with aromatic-turmerone,’ Maria Adele Rueger, a researcher on the team, told the BBC. ‘And it is possible this in turn can help boost repair in the brain.’”

Previous studies have shown that the compound can block activation of microalgal cells. When they are activated, the cells can cause neuroinflammation, associated with different neurological disorders.

People with Alzheimer’s disease tend to have more inflammation in the brain, and curcumin is perhaps most known for its potential anti-inflammatory properties.

But, let us remember that there is no singular magic bullet that can be held responsible for reproducing the whole plants healing power. The whole plant is going to carry a wider range of therapeutic compounds than just curcumin alone.
