Prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s & Dementia using curry

Eating a curry once or twice a week could help prevent the onset of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Curcumin appers to prevent the spread of harmful amyloid plaques found in the brain of Alzheimer's sufferers. These plaques are thought to play a key role in symptoms such as memory loss and mental impairment.


Turmeric has been studied not just in Alzheimer's research but for a variety of conditions such as cancer and arthritis. Professor Murali Doraiswamy said, “There is very solid evidence that curcumin binds to plaques, and basic research on animals engineered to produce human amyloid plaques has shown benefits.” Turmeric is often referred to as the spice of life in ancient Indian medical lore.

Amyloid plaques, along with tangles of nerve fibers, are thought to contribute to the degradation of the wiring in brain cells, eventually leading to symptoms of dementia. The next step is to test curcumin on human amyloid plaque formation using newer brain scans & there are plans for that.

Researchers were testing the impact of higher doses, the equivalent of going on a curry spree for a week to see if they could maximize the effect. Experts suggested that large amounts of curry would have to be eaten to counteract some of the brain changes that are characteristic of Alzheimer's. A good diet, take plenty of exercise & eating curry regularly can help to prevent dementia.

Professor Doraiswamy said, “Studies looking at populations show that people who eat a curry meal two or three times a week seem to have a lower risk for dementia.” Turmeric is also found in mustard. A day will come when those unable, or unwilling, to eat curries might be advised to take a daily curry pill.
