Alzheimer Insights by CurationHealth
A story came out this week that eating curry can prevent Alzheimer’s. Truth or hokum?
As ever, the truth is a bit more complicated and a lot more interesting. The yellow spice turmeric, a key component of any great curry, is derived from the curcuma longa plant, a member of the ginger family. A powerful anti-oxidant, curcumin appears to have beneficial effects in treating bowel inflammation and in combatting osteoarthritis. There is less certainty over its effect on the brain, but population studies have shown an interesting correlation between the diet of Indian villagers – almost daily consumers of turmeric – and the fact that this population appears to have the world’s lowest rate of Alzheimer’s incidence.
