Aromatic-Turmerone and Neural Stem Cells (Turmeric and the Brain) By Mrs Vera West

     If like me, you are alarmed about the increased prevalence of “senior moments,” where you have some bill to pay, but you over or under pay, but then you tell the person on the receiving end, to suck it up, and you have that fear of eventually loosing your “marbles” (although people like Uncle Len lost all of his marbles long ago), you may want to do something about it, without getting on the Big Pharma train. Look no further than turmeric, which may help cognitive function, for all those so challenged:

“Aromatic (ar-) turmerone is a major bioactive compound of the herb Curcuma longa. It has been suggested that ar-turmerone inhibits microglia activation, a property that may be useful in treating neurodegenerative disease. Furthermore, the effects of ar-turmerone on neural stem cells (NSCs) remain to be investigated. … Both in vitro and in vivo data suggest that ar-turmerone induces NSC proliferation. Ar-turmerone thus constitutes a promising candidate to support regeneration in neurologic disease.”

     I have included much more information above about the health benefits of turmeric, which now encompasses hundreds of studies. You can buy the capsules from the vitamin store, but Coles and Woollies have the herb going much, much cheaper, just a few dollars and both stores have a great product. I chew into it every meal, going through entire bottles each week.  Be sure to mix it with black pepper to increase its absorption, also to be taken with some fat. Here mixing it all up with a bit of coconut oil will not only make the medicine go down, but work to increase the effects too. There is even a fantastic product which has mixed turmeric with coconut milk and added spices; very tasty. The anti-inflammatory effects from turmeric are well documented and an added benefit, although I expect that this is all part of the bio-package of how this herb works its “magic.”
