Ageing differences between men and women, when it comes to ageing, we will think of our complexion starting to look unattractive as the fine lines and wrinkles started to grow.

We all know that eating well is the key to ageing well. A lot of research and study is encouraging people to eat well and sleep well. However, according to The Independent, a new study found that a certain food, more specifically a spice can actually help to boost your mood and memory. We are talking about turmeric, the plant of the ginger family.
Turmeric has long related to Indian cuisine. Due to its curcumin content, turmeric is often credited with some great benefits such as fighting inflammation, protects the heart in a various way, brain boosting, as an antioxidant and many more.
In the study of 40 participants, each of the participants had mild memory complaints. Half of the participants were given 90 milligrams of curcumin, main anti-inflammatory ingredients from turmeric, while the other half were given a placebo. Each of them is ingested curcumin or placebo twice daily for 18 months.
At the end of the results, the participants who took the curcumin saw significant improvements in their memory and mood. “Exactly how curcumin exerts its effects is not certain, but it may be due to its ability to reduce brain inflammation, which has been linked to both Alzheimer’s disease and major depression,” said Gary Small, director of geriatric psychiatry.
Start from today onwards, try to infuse some turmeric into your food to improve your memory and mood!
