2. YOU BOOST YOUR BRAIN CELLS.
Various studies shows that an active ingredient in turmeric, called aromatic-turmerone (a-turmerone), may increase the growth of neural stem cells by as much as 80 percent.
Pause. Read the previous statement one more time. Take it in. 80 percent.
In other words, taking a supplement of turmeric shifts the natural growth of brain cells into overdrive. Now, we cannot overstate the importance of such a finding. We know that most peoples’ cognitive abilities tend to decline as time passes. What does such a finding say about the potential of supplementing our daily diet with an active form of turmeric?
Simply this: if these studies are accurate, it may mean a cognitive evolution of sorts. Active forms of turmeric may prevent and potentially reverse cognitive decline, including the inevitable weakening of brain functions that results from dementia.
3. YOU HEAL YOUR BRAIN.
Perhaps the most powerful benefit of turmeric is as a protective agent of the brain. Most people do not realize the potentially damaging stuff that the brain contends with every day. When we breathe in toxins, and they go to the brain. If we get hit in the head, the brain is damaged. When we drink alcohol, brain cells die. Okay, you get the point!
Put simply: our brain needs more protection than we realize. Amazing though your brain may be, it is still made up of soft and delicate tissue. As with the tissue that lies underneath the surface of the skin, the brain is vulnerable to physical trauma and damage.
More is at stake when damage occurs in the brain. This is because your brain is what makes you, well, you. In your quest to take care of it, you may want to look into some quality turmeric. Or, just make some homemade Indian curry!
