“Curcumin” a potent extract of turmeric, is also available.

Curcumin is known to possibly prevent or improve age-related cognitive decline, dementia, and mood disorders. This is a valuable quality in this age of rapidly increasing Alzheimer’s and dementia-causing illness. In a randomized, trial, 60 adults between the ages of 60 and 85 were observed following a dose of curcumin. These participants saw increased attention and improved memory an hour later. After four weeks of regular curcumin supplements, participant memory, mood, alertness, and contentedness was reported be considerably improved.

That study is just one of hundreds. Curcumin is a hot topic in the world of research. Investigation into its benefits and uses is conducted frequently. For example, more than 900 research papers have been published regarding curcumin’s anti-cancer properties. One research group even determined that curcumin has the ability to program some cancer cells to die! This is a process called “apoptosis.” Cancers that are resistant to a variety of chemotherapeutic agents seem to still respond to curcumin in experiments using mice. 

Curcumin has a long, positive safety record, a low risk of side effects, and is a strong anti-inflammatory.

Curcumin is spicy, a little is all you need. It is also a laxative, so don’t over do it. The best thing about curry, and curcumin are that most physicians consider them safe and effective supplements.  The wide range of health benefits, extremely low risk of side effects, and wealth of research make them highly desirable and easily implemented immediately. Ask your doctor about supplementing with either curry or curcumin if you struggle with inflammatory conditions. Both will be valuable weapons against autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, psoriasis and other pain syndromes.

Be sure to remember that curcumin is highly concentrated and has strong, medicinal activity in the body. It behaves like a natural drug. Curry, on the other hand is a cooking spice, therefore much milder on your system and may be used liberally.
