Ever feel like your brain could use a little boost? Did you know you could give your brain that pick-me-up by simply adding a spice to your diet?! Ah, the “miracle” ingredient that is turmeric!
For those unfamiliar with turmeric, it’s a spice that has been used in India and other parts of Asia for thousands of years for both cooking and as a medicinal herb. If you’re a fan of curry then you’re a fan of turmeric!
The main bioactive compound in turmeric, curcumin, has LOADS of health benefits but research has shown it is especially good for your brain.
Aside from helping to improve memory and concentration by increasing blood flow to the brain, curcumin increases neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to grow and change throughout your lifetime as well as increases the brain hormone BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) which helps to improve the functions of neurons.
Since curcumin is not only an antioxidant but a powerful anti-inflammatory as well, it helps to reduce chronic inflammation of the brain which is the cause of brain fog, memory loss, anxiety, and even Alzheimer’s!
If learning all this didn’t already make you feel better, curcumin also increases serotonin in the brain so no matter what your mood & immune system are getting a boost! This spice really does do a brain & body good!
Since turmeric is a simple spice, it can easily be incorporated into your foods. It’s suggested to mix black pepper in with turmeric because it helps to enhance the absorption of the curcumin. For tea lovers you can simply add 1/2 tsp ground turmeric, 1/2 tsp black pepper and a squeeze of lemon into your tea and you’re set!
