Did you know that turmeric can help with brain regeneration? It contains a fat-soluble component called aromatic turmerone which has been studied by researchers for its effects on neural stem cells. They found out that the neural stem cells of rats increased by 80% when exposed to aromatic turmerone, resulting in their forming healthy new brain cells in the subventricular zone and the hippocampus.
Aromatic turmerone is a potent regenerative that can help in the process of neural stem cells regeneration and could eventually prevent degenerative diseases such as stroke or Alzheimer’s. Scientists also suggest it can improve the memory of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s.
In the case of colonic inflammation or polyps, it is much better to use the whole plant rather than just the extract that is usually used since the latter can be completely absorbed by the small intestine before even reaching the large. Plants are composed of many beneficial compounds, it is not only one of them that is responsible for having healing effects on the body. Despite the benefits of its compounds such as curcumin and aromatic turmerone, the best results will be achieved by consuming the whole plant.
The effects of aromatic turmerone on a brain are still relatively unknown, but this recent study shows it certainly has regenerative properties.
Note: However, these results have so far been supported by studies conducted on non-human subjects or a very small number of human subjects, so, we highly recommend you consult with your doctor before making any decisions on your own.
