Curcumin's Brain-Boosting Benefits
Curcumin is a powerful free radical neutralizer that is known to support balanced immune function.* It is also known to have poor bioavailability, which means that it is not easily absorbed by the body. * NOW® CurcuBrain™ features Longvida® Optimized Curcumin, which in studies exhibits up to 65 times the bioavailability of free curcuminoids compared with generic curcumin.* Longvida® is absorbed by the GI tract and delivered to the rest of the body as free curcumin, the active form in the body.* Longvida® is shown to penetrate the blood-brain barrier for the support of healthy neuronal tissues.*
Curcumin has many brain-boosting benefits, including supporting cognitive function and memory, reducing inflammation, and protecting against age-related damage.* Let's take a closer look at each of these benefits.
Supporting Cognitive Function and Memory
One of curcumin's primary brain-boosting benefits is its ability to support cognitive function and memory.* In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving healthy adults ages 60-85, participants who took Longvida® Optimized Curcumin showed significant improvements in immediate Word Recall Scores on the Cognitive Demand Battery versus placebo after 8 weeks of supplementation.* The participants who took Longvida® also showed better scores on mood measures such as sadness, anger, confusion, and fatigue versus placebo. *
Another brain-boosting benefit of curcumin is its ability to reduce inflammation.* Excessive inflammation has been linked to cognitive decline and dementia.* In one study involving rats with induced inflammation of the hippocampus (a region of the brain responsible for learning and memory), treatment with curcumin was found to decrease levels of proinflammatory cytokines and increase levels of anti-inflammatory cytokines in the hippocampus .* These results suggest that curcumin may be helpful in reducing inflammation-related cognitive decline.
Protecting Against Age-Related Damage
Curcumin may also help protect against age-related damage to the brain.* In a study involving human neural stem cells (hNSCs), treatment with curcumin was found to increase levels of two key proteins involved in cell survival and growth: BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor) and NGF (nerve growth factor) .* This suggests that curcumin may help protect hNSCs from age-related oxidative stress and apoptosis (cell death). *
Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant with many brain-boosting benefits, including supporting cognitive function and memory, reducing inflammation, and protecting against age-related damage.* If you're looking for a way to support your brain health, consider adding a supplement like NOW® CurcuBrain™ to your daily routine.
