Turmeric Could Improve Brain Health and Regeneration: German Research

Turmeric could improve the brain function and its power to repair itself. A team of researchers from Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine in Julich, Germany have found that a compound found in turmeric improved the brain’s self-repair during an experiment. Turmeric promoted the growth of neural stem cells in rats.

The research team injected aromatic turmerone, a compound present in turmeric in abundance, directly into the neural stem cells in rat’s brain. The analysis of rat’s brain revealed higher activity in certain parts of the brain. Abundance of neural stem cells improves regeneration after trauma or str...
