There are over 6,000 studies that show turmeric as the herb with the most remedying properties and health benefits. Even the fact that it has been used for over 5,000 years is saying something. And perhaps its most impressive quality is one that you may have thought impossible. Brain regeneration.
Turmeric is a root, closely related to ginger. It has a bright orange color that you may have seen in curries, cheeses and mustard. It is commonly dried and used as a powder, extracted and put into capsules, or even used raw.
Its most popular compound is curcumin, which has many benefits and is the part of turmeric that gives it the rich color. However, although many people have focused on curcumin alone, this active compound is only a small part of the many remedying properties you can gain from turmeric.
One of the most astounding benefits of turmeric is its ability to help regenerate brain cells. There was a study done on a component of turmeric called ar-tumerone where German researchers found that by exposing this element to brain cells, the neural stem cells began to rapidly reproduce and generate healing properties.
There have also been studies showing that turmeric can help with brain regeneration following a stroke and can even help promote brain regeneration for those with dementia and Alzheimers. Three Alzeimers patients, as published in the Ayu journal, after taking turmeric for 12 weeks showed incredible improvements in behavior, such as less irritability, agitation and anxiety. After 1 year they even began to recognize their family members.
Taking turmeric daily can remedy and protect your brain and reverse damage caused by toxins such as fluoride.
So there must be something more to do than order the occasional curry, or smother your hamburger in mustard. What is the best way to take turmeric and gain the most benefits?
As mentioned before, the best way you can get the full range of benefits from turmeric is to make sure your choice of extract or capsule contains the whole plant, not just the curcumin compound.
How much to take or when to take it depends heavily on you and your individual needs. However, it is most effective if you take it in small amounts for a long period of time, rather than use it in large doses in attempt to aid a specific ailment.
It is also important to know that taking turmeric by itself is actually the least effective thing to do. This is because when turmeric enters the liver, the liver thinks it is a foreign substance and makes it water soluble to get rid of it as quickly as possible, never allowing the body to really take advantage of it. One way to avoid this is to take turmeric with black pepper. Black pepper contains piperine, which inhibits this process in the liver and enhances the effectiveness of turmeric.
Turmeric can prevent or aid over 600 diseases and remedy the human body physiologically in over 180 ways and there are over 100 articles on its amazing brain regeneration properties. I mean, no other spice can beat that. So find your capsule, your powder, or just go straight to the root and get your daily dose of turmeric!
