They conducted an experiment involving people aged 50 to 90 years, among whom were those who had memory problems, and those from whom they have already been noted. A year and a half of the subjects had used curcumin at least twice a week.
As a result, scientists were able to verify that people who regularly eat turmeric, significantly improved the performance of memory, ability to concentrate, and emotional state. People in the brain which were attended by plaques of amyloid, the concentration decreased.
