You know the vibrant yellow, fragrant curry spice that gives the distinct curry flavour? Well, it seems that this historic spice may not only support hair growth, increase metabolic rate and much more, it may even help to repair brain cells in people with neurodegenerative diseases such as Dementia. The chemical component known as aromatic turmerone seems to promote the growth of brain stem cells and their development into full blown neurons. Now that researchers have established the bio- active compound in turmeric, scientists may potentially develop treatments for conditions in which brain cells are lost.
