Why you need it…
Living in Florida with its older population, it is sad to see so many people losing their memories and going into assisted living, some even before age seventy. Shockingly, one-out-of-three people over age sixty-five suffer some memory loss. It doesn’t have to be this way. In traditional societies, memory loss was rare. We are doing this to ourselves with our bad diets and toxic exposures.
Fortunately, there are things you can do to prevent this from happening. Over 6000 scientific studies show that the extract of turmeric called curcumin supports over 600 health conditions, including being very supportive of the brain. Curcumin fights inflammation in the brain, dissolves beta-amyloid plaques and tangles, and supports the growth of new brain cells. Studies show amazing improvements in cognitive function in people taking curcumin for just twelve weeks. Even better results can be obtained by combining the curcumin with magnesium, vitamin B12, acetyl L-carnitine, phosphatidyl serine, and essential fatty acids.
However, be warned, not all curcumin will provide these benefits. Most curcumin supplements are in a form that is neutralized by the stomach’s digestive juices and is incapable of passing the blood-brain barrier to get where it needs to go. The form I use is the same form used by researchers in their successful studies. The brand I use is Beyond Health Curcumin; I take four capsules per day.
Best of all, by taking curcumin daily, you are not only protecting your brain, you will also be protecting your heart, your joints, your eyes, and even helping to prevent diabetes and cancer.
