Turmeric and brain health

A recent systematic review analysed 13 studies on the potential effects of curcumin supplementation on patients with metabolic syndrome (link to the study). Metabolic syndrome is a combination of health conditions (high blood pressure, high blood sugar, abnormal cholesterol levels) that increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

โ€ข Curcumin supplementation led to improvements in several markers associated with metabolic syndrome.
โ€ข It also positively impacted inflammatory markers and oxidative stress indicators.
โ€ข However, not all markers showed improvement, and the results varied across studies.

Reduced inflammation, particularly in metabolic syndrome, might potentially benefit brain health. Neuroinflammation seems to increase with age and could be a risk factor for neurodegenerative conditions.

Curcumin may improve markers of metabolic syndrome such as inflammation and, by extension, brain health. Although promising, more research is needed to confirm these findings and its potential for brain health.
