TUMERIC can prevent Altzheimers
extract from Dr Wright “preventing Altzheimers with curry”
Studies continue to show regular use of turmeric can significantly lower your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline.
You can find turmeric in supplement form but just adding it to your meals appears to do the job too. Even though all the goodness appears to come from an extract in tumeric called curcumin, there’s enough of it in whole turmeric to make using the more expensive purified curcumin unnecessary.
There are more than 1,000 research citations on the National Library of Medicine website on curcumin. Multiple studies have shown that curcumin has very potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and properties. And it's been shown to prevent plaque and reduce beta-amyloid burden - both found in excess in Alzheimer’s disease.
In 2006, researchers also reported a study of 1,010 people, ages 60-93 that did not have Alzheimer’s or senile dementia. They were all given a Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE), which is a standardised test for cognitive function. Those who ate curry (which contains curcumin) “often" or "very often” or even “occasionally” had significantly better MMSE scores than those who “never" or "rarely” ate curry.
