Memory, Mood and Food – The Neuroprotective Capabilities of Curcumin Supplementation

Of the many concerns of aging, nothing is more important than enjoying a healthy mind to reflect on the blessings that life has offered.

It is widely accepted that the best way to prevent many chronic diseases and ensure brain health later in life is by eating well, maintaining normal weight and controlling inflammation in the body throughout the lifespan. However, epidemiological studies have found reduced rates of Alzheimer’s, Dementia and mood disorders in places of the world like India suggesting that specific attributes in the traditional diets provide a rationale for this phenomenon.

Alzheimer’s Disease is progressive and largely incurable, characterized by the development of amyloid plaques in specific areas of the cortex and hippocampus responsible for logical thought and memory. Further contributing to the current crisis in brain health are the vast numbers of people suffering with mood and depressive disorders. It is estimated that at least 21 percent of the population in the United States will experience a mood disorder at some point in their lifetime.
