Curcumin and Vitamin D3 may Dissolve Plaques of Alzheimer's Disease
(NaturalNews) Research into methods of preventing or reversing the damaging effects on the braincaused by Alzheimer's disease is heating up -- namely with a common spice, turmeric, and somethingso simple, the sun. A new study by UCLA scientists and colleagues from UC Riverside and theHuman BioMolecular Research Institute, cited in the July issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease,reports findings suggesting the possibility that Vitamin D3 and a chemical, curcumin, found in thespi, might possibly not only prevent, but may help reverse damage done by the typicalplaques and tangles which are characteristics o.
The theory is that the combination o and curcumin stimulate the in afashion that helps clear amyloid beta, the "gunk" that forms the damaging plaques in the brain. Thissmall study used blood samples from patients, measuring the effects of andvitamin D3 on amyloid beta. Dr. Milan Fiala, study author and researcher, states: "We hope thatvitamin D3 and curcumin, both naturally occurring nutrients, may offer new preventive and treatmentpossibilities for Alzheimer`s ."
The promising results of this research could not be timelier. A study was recently released predictingthat the number of people with Alzheimer`s disease will double every 20 years. Globally, an estimated35.6 million people will be living with dementia by the year 2010. According to the National Institutesof Health, in the United States alone, one in seven Americans over the age of 71 will have some sortof dementia. These numbers are especially daunting as the emotional, physical, and financial toll ofAlzheimer's disease can be devastating.
The standard protocol for treating Alzheimer's disease is to use pharmaceuticals. Drugs currently onthe market are generally only effective when treatment is begun in the early stages. Cfor early stage treatment are Aricept, Reminyl, and Exelon. Namenda is a newer drug which offerssome relief for persons in the later stages of Alzheimer`s. These drugs (which have many side-effects) can only slow the progression of the disease, not reverse the damage.
In a recently published article in Natural News, Sheryl Waters contributes:
"India has one the lowest numbers of people suffering with Alzheimer's in the world. In fact just 1% ofIndians over 65 suffers from the disease while that number is more like 10% iearsscientists and Doctors had struggled to understand exactly why this is, but research in to the medicalproperties of a well known spice may just have provided the answer. Early research in to Turmericwas based totally around the spice`s amazing ability to stop the growth of cancerous cells. But as thespice was investigated further researchers found that it may also prevent the progression of Alzheimer's."
Previous studies involving curcumin demonstrate the protective binding of amyloid beta. This morerecent study conducted at UCLA suggests that the addition of vitamin D3 amplifies this positive effect.
An essential nutrient for bone and immune syste, along with psychological well-being,vitamin D3 is synthesized through the skin. Vitamin D3 deficiencies are associated with numerousserious health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and depression.
Perhaps something as simple as a regular sprinkling of turmeric in our meals and regular doses ofsunshine may ward off the dreaded disease called Alzheimer`s.
