There is a completely natural remedy for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. A recent review of three serious cases of dementia has shown that the introduction of turmeric into diet can significantly improve the behavior and psychological symptoms associated with dementia.
Turmeric is a traditional spice that is widely used throughout India and Southeast Asia for thousands of years. And in recent years it has become the focus of interest in science because it has been tested in hundreds of studies. All of them show that turmeric positively influences blood vessels, digestive organs. And the nervous system so that the time goes by a growing list of diseases in which this spice can serve as a natural remedy.
This is certainly the case with the impact of turmeric on cognitive health, as proven by new research from Japan. Doctors of the General Hospital of Tokyo Cariah have estimated three different cases concerning turmeric and have come up with some fascinating conclusions about the therapeutic value of this plant. In all three cases, turmeric has been shown to reduce the symptoms of dementia and improve general cognitive ability.
“In studying three patients with Alzheimer’s disease, with symptoms of severe cognitive decline and behavioral deterioration. And psychological symptoms of dementia. Which included irritability, anxiety, and apathy. The addition of turmeric capsules over a year led to an improvement in symptoms,” wrote one the author in summary. “The total psychological state of all three severe cases, in one already for 12 weeks. And all three patients were able to recognize members of their family by adding turmeric for a year.”

Consuming only one gram of turmeric daily can lead to “significant improvement”! One gram of turmeric is about a quarter of a teaspoon of turmeric. Early research, published in the 2008 Anali Journal of the Indian Academy of Neurology, confirms this fact. These studies have argued that turmeric is a natural antioxidant, has anti-inflammatory action and acts detoxicating. Which helps to repair the memory of demented patients. In other words, simply adding a little more of this ordinary spice to the diet in some cases is able to completely stop brain degradation. And alleviate even the worst symptoms of dementia.

Which helps to correct the cognitive function of patients with Alzheimer’s disease,” the abstract of this earlier study reported. “Due to the different effects of turmeric, one of which involves the reduction of beta-amyloid deposits, slowing down the decline of neurons. Removing heavy metals, anti-inflammatory effects and reducing the formation of microglia. The total memory of patients with Alzheimer’s disease has improved.
