Turmeric vs. Alzheimers

Turmeric vs. Alzheimers

As you grow older, you become more susceptible to developing Alzheimers. A progressive disease that destroys your memory and other important mental functions.

Alzheimers is the most common form of dementia among older people. About 4.5 million Americans suffer from this condition, which usually begins after age 60. The number of people with the disease doubles every 5 years beyond age 65

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have discovered what they say is the root of the brain condition and a way you can help lower your risk.

After analyzing the brains of more than 3,600 people who died with alzheimers, the researchers say the main destructive element that wipes out the memory is a substance called Tau Protein.

Melissa Murray, a neuroscientist, says distortions in tau are what sets in motion the dysfunction of neurons that leads to personality changes along with memory gaps and difficulties relating to your surroundings.

Reducing Your Risk For Alzheimers

If you want to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, one of the best ways is to use the spice turmeric on your food or take a turmeric supplement. Turmeric is a spice that has been used in India for thousands of years as a medicinal herb. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. 

Research shows that substances in turmeric can help the brain defend against harmful changes in tau. A study in Asia showed that that having a gram of turmeric with your breakfast can improve your memory.

Turmeric is easy to find, and easy to prepare. Most health food stores carry the dried root, and the root powder.  Turmeric has a slightly spicy and peppery taste, so an easy way to offset that is to use something sweet.

Here are some ways you can incorporate turmeric into your diet

1) Use a pinch of turmeric in your scrambled eggs

2) Toss it with roasted vegetables

3) Add a dash of turmeric to a pot of plain rice to bring out some color and a mild flavor.

4) Use it in a bowl of vegetable or chicken soup

5) Blend it into a smoothie

If you are having trouble finding a way to spice up your diet with turmeric, you can always take a turmeric supplement. Our Multi-Force Joint supplement contains 300 mgs of turmeric, along with egg membrane and quercetin!
