This plays an important role in the division and multiplication of neurons.

BDNF production decreases with age and stress.

This in turn improves memory and increases brain capacity.

As mentioned previously, turmeric can help boost BDNF, which can effectively protect you against brain disease.

5. Lowers Risk Of Heart Disease

Heart disease is related to the health of blood vessel lining, called endothelium [7].

Oxidative stress and cholesterol can reduce the elasticity of this lining and that can lead to serious health problems.

Turmeric provides beneficial results in preventing heart disease.

In fact, it’s comparable to the drug atorvastatin.

It’s also as effective as exercise in maintaining optimal endothelium health (8).
