Turmeric is one of the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today! It’s medicinal properties and components have been the subject of over 5600 peer reviewed and published biomedical studies.
It is no wonder that turmeric helps so many health conditions, including brain regeneration!
Our understanding of the brain has come a long way. It wasn’t so long ago that neurogenesis—that is, the brain’s ability to regenerate its own cells was deemed impossible.
Now we not only know that cell regeneration is a natural function of the brain, but also that we can aid and accelerate this process with healing foods like turmeric.
Many studies have already established a strong link between neuroinflammation and the development of Alzeimer’s disease. Thus, a compound like turmeric capable of simultaneously stopping inflammation and accelerating neurogenesis (a process which keeps the brain young and staves off cognitive decline) is truly a godsend.
Studies have identified a component in turmeric called ar-tumerone, and found that it has the remarkable ability to facilitate neurogenesis by speeding up the rate at which neural stem cells differentiate into functioning neurons.
This same study even demonstrated that the presence of ar-tumerone in the brain causes an increased number of neural stem cells to move to areas of the brain that require new neurons. Ar-turmerone quite literally organizes and accelerates the brain’s self-healing potential.
Previous studies have shown that ar-tumerone not only “plays offense” by triggering neurogenesis, but also defends the brain against damage.
Not All Turmeric Supplements are Created Equal
But before you rush to the store to buy this magical spice you need to know…
Most of the turmeric supplements you see in stores is in the form of encapsulated powders. The truth is with turmeric powder you may get very little actual benefit and may be wasting your money!
Turmeric is hard to absorb and unless you use the right formulation, turmeric will not reach the required levels in your blood stream that will give you all of these benefits.
There’s another NEW form of turmeric that actually tastes amazing AND is easy to absorb…
