The deterioration of the neurons that affect the central nervous system is known as neurodegeneration. The most common neurodegenerative diseases are Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington diseases and glaucoma. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease is about 6.2 million. Another statistic shows that as many as 1.2 million people in the United States could be affected by Parkinson’s Disease by the year 2030. Neurodegenerative disease is a growing problem and Curcumin has been found to have potential neuroprotective benefits when ingested orally.
Curcumin is a polyphenol found in the curry spice turmeric that has been widely regarded for centuries in Ayurvedic traditions for its antioxidant properties. There is evidence that Curcumin can have potent therapeutic benefits for the neurological system. Recent studies have shown that Curcumin has properties that may help prevent neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease. In Alzheimer’s disease, a peptide called β-amyloid (Aβ peptide) binds into oligomers and fibrils and forms deposits known as senile plaques outside neurons in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex of the brain. Scientists have determined that Curcumin inhibits Aβ fibril formation and extension and to destabilize preformed fibrils in research done in test tubes. Research has also shown that taking Curcumin orally can protect the intestinal mucosa against oxidative DNA damage.
