    [h=1]Spice up your memory: Just one gram of turmeric a day could boost memory[/h]Posted on 2014/11/19

    Adding just one gram of turmeric to breakfast could help improve the memory of people who are in the very early stages of diabetes and at risk of cognitive impairment.

    The finding has particular significance given that the world’s ageing population means a rising incidence of conditions that predispose people to diabetes, which in turn is connected to dementia.

    Early intervention could help to reduce the burden, whether by halting the disease or reducing its impact, said Emeritus Professor Mark Wahlqvist, from the Monash Asia Institute at Monash University.


    Professor Wahlqvist recently led a study in Taiwan that tested the working memory of men and women aged 60 or older who had recently been diagnosed with untreated pre-diabetes.


    “Working memory is widely thought to be one of the most important mental faculties, critical for cognitive abilities such as planning, problem solving and reasoning,” he said.


    “Assessment of working memory is simple and convenient, but it is also very useful in the appraisal of cognition and in predicting future impairment and dementia.”
    In the placebo-controlled study, subjects were given one gram of turmeric with an otherwise nutritionally bland breakfast of white bread. Their working memory was tested before and some hours after the meal.

    “We found that this modest addition to breakfast improved working memory over six hours in older people with pre-diabetes,” Professor Wahlqvist said.

    Turmeric is widely used in cooking, particularly in Asia. Its characteristic yellow colour is due to curcumin, which accounts for 3 to 6 per cent of turmeric and has been shown by experimental studies to reduce the risk of dementia.

    “Our findings with turmeric are consistent with these observations, insofar as they appear to influence cognitive function where there is disordered energy metabolism and insulin resistance,” Professor Wahlqvist said.

    Combining black pepper with turmeric boosts blood levels 20X. The active ingredient, piperine prevents the liver from breaking the curcumin down, thus keeping blood levels much higher for a longer period. Piperine also has this effect on other herbs and medicines. Black pepper has traditionally been used in SE asia as a synergist for other herbs.

    My MIL started showing signs of quickly advancing dementia about a year ago, so we put her on turmeric, coconut oil, fish oil, vitamin D, and b vitamins. Her cognitive function has clearly improved in the last 6 months, which is a big relief for myself and Mrs. Gnome. Is it due to the supplements or some other factor? We don't know, but she says she feels better when she takes the supplements.

    Her bone density has also returned to normal after being osteoporotic for several years, I assume due to vitamin D.

    Hope my baby turmeric plants have survived my absence from the country. Can't wait to get back to my garden next week!

    Well, I just fixed chili dogs for lunch. Loaded up on fresh Black Pepper, a gram of Turmeric, and Cumin Seed plus what spices are in the chili sauce. Definitely an acquired taste.

    I think I'm getting a chemical headache. :confused_ma:

    Unfortunately, not a lot. Regardless, I greatly enjoy turmeric rice or cumin rice.

    And I don't think I've met a curry I didn't like.

    Turmeric Extract 100% Effective At Preventing Type 2 Diabetes, ADA Journal Study Finds

    A remarkable human clinical study published in the journal Diabetes Care, the journal of the American Diabetes Association, revealed that turmeric extract was 100% successful at preventing prediabetic patients from becoming diabetic over the course of a 9-month intervention.[1]

    Performed by Thailand researchers, the study's primary object was to assess the efficacy of curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric which gives the spice its golden hue, in delaying the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a prediabetic population.

    The study design was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial including 240 subjects who met the American Diabetic Association's criteria for prediabetes. All subjects were randomly assigned to receive either 250 mg of curcuminoid or placebo capsules for 9 months.

    Type 2 diabetes progression was assessed by measuring a wide range of parameters, including changes in the insulin-producing cells within the pancreas known as β-cells, insulin resistance, and the anti-inflammatory cytokine known as adiponectin, at four different times: baseline, 3-, 6-, and 9-month visits during the course of intervention.


    The results were reported as follows:
    "After 9 months of treatment, 16.4% of subjects in the placebo group were diagnosed with T2DM, whereas none were diagnosed with T2DM in the curcumin-treated group. In addition, the curcumin-treated group showed a better overall function of β-cells, with higher HOMA-β (61.58 vs. 48.72; P < 0.01) and lower C-peptide (1.7 vs. 2.17; P < 0.05). The curcumin-treated group showed a lower level of HOMA-IR (3.22 vs. 4.04; P < 0.001) and higher adiponectin (22.46 vs. 18.45; P < 0.05) when compared with the placebo group." [emphasis added]


    The researchers concluded:

    "A 9-month curcumin intervention in a prediabetic population significantly lowered the number of prediabetic individuals who eventually developed T2DM. In addition, the curcumin treatment appeared to improve overall function of β-cells, with very minor adverse effects. Therefore, this study demonstrated that the curcumin intervention in a prediabetic population may be beneficial."

    The full study can be viewed for free on the American Diabetic Association's Diabetes Care website: http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/35/11/2121.full


    Discussion

    Considering that at least 40% of the US population ages 40-74 are believed to have prediabetes, according to CDC statistics, [2] the health implications of this study are profound.

    Curcumin, which constitutes approximately 3-4% of dry turmeric powder by weight, is affordable, safe and easily accessible. Moreover, over 600 potential health benefits of curcumin (and/or turmeric) have been documented within the biomedical literature freely available to peruse on either the National Library of Medicine's open access database (pubmed.gov search: "curcumin"), or for your convenience, our intricately organized Curcumin database.

    Recently, we highlighted research on curcumin's potential ability to heal the diabetic liver. (Read: Turmeric May Repair and Regenerate Diabetic Liver Function) But this is really only the tip of the iceberg. Below you will find the related sections on our Curcumin database indicating curcumin's value in a wide range of diabetic complications:

    Considering the abject failure, if not also sometimes deadly nature of diabetic medications, turmeric (curcumin) provides an ideal alternative. We can only hope that medical professionals who treat prediabetics and diabetics will take seriously this study, especially considering that it was published in the American Diabetic Association's very own, highly respected journal.

    600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World's Most Important Herb

    There is a medicinal spice so timelessly interwoven with the origins of human culture and metabolism, so thoroughly supported by modern scientific inquiry, as to be unparalleled in its proven value to human health and well-being.

    Indeed, turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head. Instead of causing far more side effects than therapeutic ones, as is the case for most patented pharmaceutical medications, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the mammalian body.

    While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of safety vis-à-vis the drugs it has been compared with, e.g. hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, chemotherapy agents. Furthermore, nothing within the modern-day pharmaceutical armamentarium comes even remotely close to turmeric's 6,000 year track record of safe use in Ayurvedic medicine.[1]

    Despite its vast potential for alleviating human suffering, turmeric will likely never receive the FDA stamp of approval, due to its lack of exclusivity, patentability and therefore profitability. Truth be told, the FDA's "gold standard" for proving the value of a prospective medicinal substance betrays the age old aphorism: "he who owns the gold makes the rules," and unless an investor is willing to risk losing the 800+ million dollars that must be spent upfront, the FDA-required multi-phased double-blind, randomized clinical trials will not occur. For additional details on this rather seedy arrangement read our article on the topic: Why The Law Forbids The Medicinal Use of Natural Substances.

    Here at GreenMedInfo.com, we have reviewed over 5,000 study abstracts from the National Library of Medicine's bibliographic database known as MEDLINE and have discovered over 600 potential health benefits of turmeric, and/or its primary polyphenol known as curcumin. These can be viewed on our turmeric research page which is dedicated to disseminating the research on the topic to a larger audience.

    Some of the most amazing demonstrated properties include:





    Again, what is so amazing is not that turmeric may have value in dozens of health conditions simultaneously, or that it may improve conditions that are completely resistant to conventional treatment, but that there are over six hundred additional health conditions it may also be valuable in preventing and/or treating. Consider also the fact that turmeric grows freely on the Earth, and you will understand why its very existence threatens billions of dollars in pharmaceutical industry revenue.

    Learn more about this research in the video below (keeping in mind that it is several years old and needing some updating), and please spread the information to others who may benefit from learning more on the topic

    Turmeric Cauliflower Recipe



    December 7. 2014
    By Dr. Mercola





    If you’re looking for a warm, hearty, and healthy side dish, roasted turmeric cauliflower is one recipe you’ll want to keep on standby. Turmeric has a slightly spicy flavor with notes of ginger and pepper.

    When combined with the somewhat nutty, even sweet, flavor of cauliflower, which is brought out even more by roasting, you’ll find there’s no need to overload on starchy mashed potatoes or rice to get your comfort-food fix – this recipe is bound to become a new go-to favorite.

    Better still, this recipe, from Black Fitness Today,[SUP]1[/SUP] is delicious served warm during the fall and winter, but come spring and summer, it also works well chilled as a summer salad.




    The Recipe



    Roasted Turmeric Cauliflower2



    Ingredients:

    • 1 head of organic cauliflower
    • 1 tbsp. olive oil [or coconut oil]
    • 1 tbsp. turmeric
    • Pinch of cumin
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Chop cauliflower head into florets.
    3. Place cauliflower into a baking dish. Add olive oil, turmeric, cumin, and salt then mix together.
    4. Cover baking dish with foil to keep florets from drying out and roast for about 35-40 minutes.
    5. Then, remove foil and cook for another 15 minutes.




    Why Eat Cauliflower?


    If you’re wondering what makes roasted turmeric cauliflower so good for you, it starts with the cauliflower, which is a member of the cruciferous family of vegetables.

    Cauliflower contains sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has also been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby slowing tumor growth. Some researchers believe eliminating cancer stem cells may be key to controlling cancer.

    For instance, research has shown that combining cauliflower with curcumin (the active compound in the spice turmeric, just like in the recipe above) may help prevent and treat prostate cancer.3

    A study published in Carcinogenesis also found sulforaphane may reduce the incidence and rate of chemically induced mammary tumors in animals.[SUP]4It also inhibits the growth of cultured human breast cancer cells, leading to cell death.

    Cauliflower also contains a wealth of anti-inflammatory nutrients to help keep inflammation in check, including indole-3-carbinol or I3C, an anti-inflammatory compound that may operate at the genetic level to help prevent the inflammatory responses at its foundational level.5

    Cauliflower helps your body’s ability to detoxify in multiple ways. It contains antioxidants that support Phase 1 detoxification along with sulfur-containing nutrients important for Phase 2 detox activities. The glucosinolates in cauliflower also activate detoxification enzymes.6




    Easily Increase Your Intake of Vitamins, Minerals, and Antioxidants

    Snacking on cauliflower is a simple way to increase your intake of nutrients in which many Americans are seriously lacking. For instance, one serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C.

    It’s also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese. Cauliflower is also a good source of choline, a B vitamin known for its role in brain development.

    Choline intake during pregnancy "super-charged" the brain activity of animals in utero, indicating that it may boost cognitive function, improve learning, and memory. It may even diminish age-related memory decline and your brain's vulnerability to toxins during childhood, as well as conferring protection later in life.7

    Plus, eating cauliflower is like winning the antioxidant and phytonutrient lottery. It’s packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, kaempferol, quercetin, rutin, cinnamic acid, and much more. If you want to know even more about cauliflower, be sure to read “What Is Cauliflower Good For?




    What’s Healthier Than Cauliflower? Cauliflower with Turmeric!








    Adding turmeric to cauliflower makes this superfood even more super. Turmeric, the yellow-pigmented "curry spice" often used in Indian cuisine, contains curcumin, the polyphenol identified as its primary active component and which exhibits over 150 potentially therapeutic activities, which include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties.8

    According to Dr. William LaValley, who focuses most of his clinical work on the treatment of cancer, curcumin appears to be universally useful for just about every type of cancer, and has the most evidence-based literature supporting its use against cancer of any nutrient.

    Curcumin has the ability to modulate genetic activity and expression—both by destroying cancer cells and by promoting healthy cell function. It also promotes anti-angiogenesis, meaning it helps prevent the development of additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth. In addition, according to an ever-expanding clinical body of studies, curcumin may help:






    ]Support healthy cholesterol levels

    Prevent low-density lipoprotein oxidation

    Inhibit platelet aggregation

    Suppress thrombosis and myocardial infarction

    Suppress symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes

    Suppress symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis

    Suppress symptoms of multiple sclerosis

    Suppress symptoms of Alzheimer's disease

    Inhibit HIV replication

    Suppress tumor formation

    Enhance wound healing

    Protect against liver damage

    Increase bile secretion

    Protect against cataracts

    Protect against pulmonary toxicity and fibrosis





    Unfortunately, while there's some curcumin in whole turmeric, there's probably not enough in the regular spice to achieve all of these clinically relevant results. The turmeric root itself contains only about 3 percent curcumin concentration, so while it’s still very healthy to consume, if you’re looking for the full therapeutic effects you might want to consider a supplement of turmeric extract with at least 95% curcuminoids.




    Love Cauliflower and Turmeric? Here’s a Bonus Recipe


    If you love the combination of cauliflower and turmeric, here’s another way to prepare it. This quick recipe, from the World’s Healthiest Foods,[SUP]9[/SUP] is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant-rich, and cooks up in just five minutes, making it perfect for lunch, dinner, or even a quick snack. Impressively, one serving of this dish provides 181% of the daily value for vitamin C, 46% for vitamin K, and 33% for folate!





    Healthy Cauliflower with Turmeric

    Ingredients:

    • 1 lb. organic cauliflower
    • 5 Tbsp low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
    • 1 tsp turmeric


    Mediterranean Dressing


    • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tsp lemon juice
    • 2 medium cloves garlic, pressed or chopped
    • Sea salt and pepper to taste



    Directions:


    1. Cut cauliflower florets into quarters and let sit for 5 minutes to bring out their hidden health benefits.
    2. Press or chop garlic and let sit for 5 minutes.
    3. Heat 5 Tbsp broth in a stainless steel skillet on medium heat.
    4. When broth begins to steam, add cauliflower and turmeric and cover. For al dente cauliflower, cook for no more than 5 minutes.
    5. Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss cauliflower with the remaining ingredients while it is still hot. (Mediterranean Dressing does not need to be made separately.)

    I take two of these every day and cook with it during the week.. The low end arthritis pain is gone in my knees and hips. Amazing stuff. My ibuprofen use has dropped from 400-800 milligrams a day to a couple every two weeks.

    It seems to be a magical substance - not surprised that it helps memory.

    How would you like to start your day with an awesome antioxidant packed smoothie that has a ton of medicinal properties as well? This turmeric smoothie recipe is perfect for that.


    The Benefits of Turmeric

    Turmeric is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family. The average person may best recognize turmeric as a spice commonly used in Indian cuisine. The active compound curcumin is known to have a wide range of medicinal benefits including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antitumour, antibacterial, and antiviral activities. In India, turmeric has been used for thousands of years as a remedy for stomach and liver ailments. Turmeric can also be used topically to heal sores due to its antimicrobial properties.Turmeric is also the liver’s favorite spice and helps boost liver detox. It does this by assisting enzymes that actively flush out dietary carcinogens.[1] Be sure to check how powerful turmeric can be in treating depression as well.


    Turmeric Smoothie Recipe Ingredients:

    For these ingredients, try and use organic as much as possible. Also try not to substitute actual milk for hemp or coconut milk. If you need, you can try almond milk as well.



    • 1 cup hemp or coconut milk
    • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple or mango chunks
    • 1 fresh banana
    • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (can be increased to 1 tsp)
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
    • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
    • 1 teaspoon maca (optional)



    Add all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. Try to drink this smoothie in the morning before you have anything to eat. It’s a solid way to start your day and pack your body full of antioxidants.

    That stuff looks toxic in quantity. I might try a sprinkle or two but not a gram a day, sounds pretty ludicrous. And there are many common mild spices that would do you good without the extreme risks associated with too much of a "good" thing".

    Turmeric Produces 'Remarkable' Recovery in Alzheimer's Patients

    Turmeric has been used in India for over 5,000 years, which is likely why still today both rural and urban populations have some of the lowest prevalence rates of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in the world. A recent study on patients with AD found that less than a gram of turmeric daily, taken for three months, resulted in 'remarkable improvements.'



    Alzheimer's Disease: A Disturbingly Common Modern Rite of Passage


    A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD), sadly, has become a rite of passage in so-called developed countries. AD is considered the most common form of dementia, which is defined as a serious loss of cognitive function in previously unimpaired persons, beyond what is expected from normal aging.


    A 2006 study estimated that 26 million people throughout the world suffer from this condition, and that by 2050, the prevalence will quadruple, by which time 1 in 85 persons worldwide will be afflicted with the disease.[1]


    Given the global extent of the problem, interest in safe and effective preventive and therapeutic interventions within the conventional medical and alternative professions alike are growing.


    Unfortunately, conventional drug-based approaches amount to declaring chemical war upon the problem, a mistake which we have documented elsewhere, and which can result in serious neurological harm, as evidenced by the fact that this drug class carries an alarmingly high risk for seizures, according to World Health Organization post-marketing surveillance statistics.[2]


    What the general public is therefore growing most responsive to is using time-tested, safe, natural and otherwise more effective therapies that rely on foods, spices and familiar culinary ingredients.



    Remarkable Recoveries Reported after Administration of Turmeric


    Late last year, a remarkable study was published in the journal Ayu titiled "Effects of turmeric on Alzheimer's disease with behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia." [ii] Researchers described three patients with Alzheimer's disease whose behavioral symptoms were "improved remarkably" as a result of consuming 764 milligram of turmeric (curcumin 100 mg/day) for 12 weeks. According to the study:

    "All three patients exhibited irritability, agitation, anxiety, and apathy, two patients suffer from urinary incontinence and wonderings. They were prescribed turmeric powder capsules and started recovering from these symptoms without any adverse reaction in the clinical symptom and laboratory data."


    After only 3 months of treatment, both the patients' symptoms and the burden on their caregivers were significantly decreased.

    The report describes the improvements thusly:

    "In one case, the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score was up five points, from 12/30 to 17/30. In the other two cases, no significant change was seen in the MMSE; however, they came to recognize their family within 1 year treatment. All cases have been taking turmeric for more than 1 year, re-exacerbation of BPSD was not seen."


    This study illustrates just how powerful a simple natural intervention using a time-tested culinary herb can be. Given that turmeric has been used medicinally and as a culinary ingredient for over 5,000 years in Indian culture, even attaining the status of a 'Golden Goddess,' we should not be surprised at this result. Indeed, epidemiological studies of Indian populations reveal that they have a remarkably lower prevalence of Alzheimer's disease relative to Western nations, [3] and this is true for both rural and more "Westernized" urban areas of India.[4]


    Could turmeric be a major reason for this?



    Turmeric's Anti-Alzheimer's Properties.


    The GreenMedInfo.com database now contains a broad range of published studies on the value of turmeric, and its primary polyphenol curcumin (which gives it its golden hue), for Alzheimer's disease prevention and treatment.*


    While there are 114 studies on our Turmeric research page indicating turmeric has a neuroprotective set of physiological actions, [5] 30 of these studies are directly connected to turmeric's anti-Alzheimer's disease properties.**


    Two of these studies are particularly promising, as they reveal that curcumin is capable of enhancing the clearance of the pathological amyloid–beta plaque in Alzheimer's disease patients,[6] and that in combination with vitamin D3 the neurorestorative process is further enhanced.[7] Additional preclinical research indicates curcumin (and its analogs) has inhibitory and protective effects against Alzheimer's disease associated β-amyloid proteins.[8] [9] [10]



    Other documented Anti-Alzheimer's mechanisms include:



    • Anti-inflammatory: Curcumin has been found to play a protective role against β-amyloid protein associated inflammation.[11]



    • Anti-oxidative: Curcumin may reduce damage via antioxidant properties.[12]


    • Anti-cytotoxic: Curcumin appears to protect against the cell-damaging effects of β-amyloid proteins.[13] [14]


    • Anti-amyloidogenic: Turmeric contains a variety of compounds (curcumin, tetrahydrocurcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin) which may strike to the root pathological cause of Alzheimer's disease by preventing β-amyloid protein formation.[15] [16] [17] [18]


    • Neurorestorative: Curcuminoids appear to rescue long-term potentiation (an indication of functional memory) impaired by amyloid peptide, and may reverse physiological damage by restoring distorted neurites and disrupting existing plaques. [19] [20]


    • Metal-chelating properties: Curcumin has a higher binding affinity for iron and copper rather than zinc, which may contribute to its protective effect in Alzheimer's disease, as iron-mediated damage may play a pathological role.[21] [22]



    Just The Tip of the Medicine Spice Cabinet



    The modern kitchen pantry contains a broad range of anti-Alzheimer's disease items, which plenty of science now confirms. Our Alzheimer's research page contains research on 97 natural substances of interest. Top on the list, of course, is curcumin. Others include:







    • Cocoa: A 2009 study found that cocoa procyanidins may protect against lipid peroxidation associated with neuronal cell death in a manner relevant to Alzheimer's disease.[24]



    • Sage: A 2003 study found that sage extract has therapeutic value in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.[25]


    • Folic acid: While most of the positive research on this B vitamin has been performed on the semi-synthetic version, which may have unintended, adverse health effects, the ideal source for this B vitamin is foliage, i.e. green leafy vegetables, as only foods provide folate. Also, the entire B group of vitamins, especially including the homocysteine-modulating B6 and B12,[26] may have the most value in Alzheimer's disease prevention and treatment.


    • Resveratrol: this compound is mainly found in the Western diet in grapes, wine, peanuts
    and chocolate. There are 16 articles on our website indicating it has anti-Alzheimer's properties.[27]



    Other potent natural therapies include:


    • Gingko biloba: is one of the few herbs proven to be at least as effective as the pharmaceutical drug Aricept in treating and improving symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.[28] [29]


    • Melissa offinalis: this herb, also known as Lemon Balm, has been found to have therapeutic effect in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.[30]


    • Saffron: this herb compares favorably to the drug donepezil in the treatment of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease.[31]


    As always, the important thing to remember is that it is our diet and environmental exposures that largely determine our risk of accelerated brain aging and associated dementia. Prevention is an infinitely better strategy, especially considering many of the therapeutic items mentioned above can be used in foods as spices. Try incorporating small, high-quality culinary doses of spices like turmeric into your dietary pattern, remembering that 'adding it to taste,' in a way that is truly enjoyable, may be the ultimate standard for determining what a 'healthy dose' is for you.

    Using Turmeric Root, An Immune Boosting Natural Anti-Inflammatory



    Published on Feb 24, 2015
    Turmeric root is one of those ordinary spices you wouldn't normally think to call a superfood, but this curcumin containing rhyzome is actually full of health enhancing properties and one of the most extensively researched herbs around. Turmeric offers a potent source of antioxidant-rich compounds as well as antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal properties. Consuming the fresh root or powder is a simple and effective way to re-boost immune health and other evidence suggests its specific usefulness as anti-inflammatory, helpful as an herbal remedy for muscle soreness and digestive disorders.

    Well, I started sauteing onions and bell peppers in coconut oil, then adding 2 eggs & approx 1/2 tsp of turmeric 3-5 days a week. While I'm not a genius by any measure, I believe that there is a distinct improvement in my cognitive function over the past 3 weeks. Maybe it's just a placebo effect, but hey...whatever works, right?

    Christian Wilde discussed how turmeric has been shown to offer benefit to some 600 different health conditions, including Alzheimer's, depression, diabetes and MS. One of the most remarkable things about the spice is that it doesn't have side effects, he noted. Turmeric functions as an antioxidant, but also has antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties, he detailed. Further, it can neutralize toxicity, and has been used in integrative medicine approaches for cancer, making the effects of chemotherapy less harmful. Turmeric has the ability to shut off the blood flow to tumors, and may reduce the spread of cancer, he continued. In China, turmeric has been used for nearly 5,000 years to treat depression, he cited, and works by mediating various neurotransmitters. Turmeric has a slight blood thinning effect so people on drugs such as Warfarin should check with their doctors before using, he cautioned. In order to monetize the beneficial qualities of turmeric, pharmaceutical companies are scrambling to synthesize the spice into a drug, Wilde reported.

    I don't know if it is helping my memory but Turmeric does help me relax more and go to sleep at night.

    After a tough time through the holidays and into January I was doing some research on boosting dopamine. I started a regimen of cumin, L-tyrosine, and L-theanine. My personal opinion is that they aided in keeping the blues away so long as I stay away from alcohol. If i so much as have three beers, the following day, all I want to do is sleep.

    Started eating the roots myself, have one every night after I walk with a beer. A friend started taking the tablets last year and cut out her cholestral pills, last test was better than taking the medications, trying it myself now.
