Spices for the brain
So this is why India is racing ahead in the brainpower market: Curry Could Save Brain Cells. Betterhumans.com explains:
Curry may help fight brain diseases by enhancing an enzyme that protects brain cells from oxidative damage.
Studying the effects of a compound in the spice on rat neurons, Italian and American researchers have found that it might help protect against such diseases as Alzheimer's.
The researchers—including Michael Schwartzman and Nader Abraham from New York Medical College in Valhalla—think that the compound could help prevent neurodegenerative conditions that affect the elderly, although they say that much more research is needed.
