Curry Shows Promise in Alzheimer’s Prevention

Guest Author - Debbie Mandel

The Immune system might be the weakest link in Alzheimer’s Disease. Recent medical research from UCLA shows that plaque buildup in the brains of Alzheimer's patients may be related to immune system problems, particularly in immune system cells known as macrophages.

"Macrophages are the janitors of the innate immune system, gobbling up waste products in the brain and throughout the body," says researcher Milan Fiala, MD.
Using test tubes to compare results: Macrophages from healthy participants were able to clear away amyloid-beta proteins, while those from Alzheimer's patients were unable to do the job well.

Of course, further studies need to be conducted; however, new immune-boosting strategies could alter the course of treatment for Alzheimer’s.

Interesting to note: UCLA is investigating the natural healing ability of curcumin, also known as turmeric, a key ingredient in curry spice. Recently, curcumin has shown great promise in combating Alzheimer’s and cancer. Experiments have involved mice and humans are next!

Start using more curry in your cooking – it couldn’t hurt!
