US study: Curcumin improves memory and moodAccording to the results of a study conducted by UCLA researchers, daily consumption of a certain form of curcumin improved memory and mood in people with mild, age-related memory loss.
The research, published online January 19th in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, examined the effects of a curcumin supplement on memory performance in people without dementia, as well as curcumin’s potential impact on the microscopic plaques and tangles in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease.
An article on the site of the University of California explains that curcumin has previously been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in lab studies. It also has been suggested as a possible reason that senior citizens in India, where curcumin is a dietary staple, have a lower prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and better cognitive performance.
