Turmeric (Curcuma longa) and Alzheimer's Disease

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is familiar as a spice used in cooking, but over the last two decades research has been attempting to uncover turmeric's history of use by herbalists. It is frequently given to people with inflammation and ailments such as arthritis, circulatory disorders and skin conditions (eg. psoriasis), as well as to improve digestion.

Here's one of many such research findings (many other examples can be found in the references at the end of the article):

  1. We would want to make people from all around the world pay attention to the people with Alzheimer’s disease. The disease in many people can cause a loss of memory, which means they will only remember the things from their youth, but no recent events, as the disease develops. Some of the symptoms are also dementia, mood swings, trouble in communication and reasoning.
