C. Turmeric Dramatically Increases Your Body’s Antioxidant Function

Some say oxidative action is a part of the cause of the ageing process and many diseases.

Curcumin in turmeric works as a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals.

Free radicals tend to negatively impact important organic substances, such as fatty acids,proteins or DNA.

Antioxidants, like those in turmeric, guard your body from these free radicals.

Curcumin also stimulates the working of our body’s antioxidant enzymes.  That is it works and it helps other antioxidants work.  It does double duty.

So, curcumin hits in two directions against free radicals. First, it blocks them directly, then it kick starts the body’s natural antioxidant enzymes.

D. Curcumin May Increase Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, Which Improves Brain Activity

 

Years ago, some scientists thought neurons could not divide or multiply except in early childhood. But now, most doctors accept that this does happen, even in adults.

The neurons establish new connections, including in  areas of the brain, where they also multiply in number.

One hormone in this process is Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which works as a type of growth hormone working inside your brain.  Not a few brain malfunctions are associated with declining levels of BDNF. Two that you might recognize are depression and Alzheimer’s disease.

Curcumin tends to work to raise the levels of BDNF.  In that increase, some think turmeric is useful in delaying and/or reversing some brain diseases and geriatric decreases in brain function.

Based on the foregoing some say turmeric also could help boost your memory and intelligence.

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry. He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions. His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics. He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today. As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations. Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes. Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality. Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective.
