It sounds impossible. We can't stop Alzheimer's or heal stroke damage with a nutrient, right? Well, as unlikely as it sounds, there's growing evidence that you can do just that.
Time magazine just published an article about a study that says, "A spice commonly used to make curry could help the brain heal itself by encouraging the growth of nerve cells."
In the study, researchers at the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine in Julich, Germany, injected rats with aromatic-turmerone. This is a compound found naturally in turmeric, which I've told you about many times. It's one of the most powerful spices I know of. And, in this case, the turmeric caused the rats' brains to show increased activity in areas associated with nerve-cell growth.
While the researchers said the impact on Alzheimer's and stroke damage was unclear, they believe turmeric could enable brain cells to regrow. This is very exciting news. But it's not all this research team discovered.
The researchers wanted to know just how powerful this spice is for brain cells. So they conducted a second trial where they bathed rats' neural stem cells in a solution of aromatic-turmerone. Not only did the cells grow, Time magazine said they "also appeared to specialize into certain types of brain cells more rapidly."

One of the researchers, Maria Adele Rueger, said: "It is interesting that it might be possible to boost the effectiveness of the stem cells with aromatic-turmerone (turmeric). And it is possible this in turn can help boost repair in the brain."
Yes, it's too soon to draw conclusions about turmeric's ability to stop Alzheimer's and repair stroke damage. But this is exciting news. And since turmeric has no side effects, there's no reason to wait for more research. Go ahead and start taking turmeric on a daily basis.
Since Alzheimer's and stroke damage both cause inflammation, the turmeric in Reduloxin can help in two ways. It can help reduce inflammation. And it may help regrow healthy brain cells. But don't stop with Reduloxin. It's also important to take nutrients that specifically target your brain, such as those in Advanced Memory Formula. Taking both of these together could fight brain disease and heal damaged cells. It's worth trying.
