Say goodbye to brain fog

Say goodbye to brain fog

Curcumin, the primary active compound found in turmeric root, has an impressive list of benefits, including:
  • Natural painkiller thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects
  • Relieves arthritis symptoms
  • Alleviates irritable bowel syndrome
  • Reduces allergy symptoms
  • Supports cardiovascular health
  • Supports weight management
  • Boosts immune function by modulating the immune response

Our Curcumin supplement of choice was born after Your Bodhi founder Sophie discovered it offers anti-inflammatory aid for irritable bowel disease too.

But it gets better: the remarkable properties of this natural plant compound also help care for our brain health and cognitive function!


How to Use Curcumin

While culinary spices are an important addition to healthy food (they contribute to your plant variety count), it’s unfortunately difficult to get much curcumin from food. The small amount in whole turmeric root (including powdered turmeric) has poor bioavailability.

When you cook with turmeric, make sure to use it as in traditional recipes - with a source of fat and black pepper - to improve bioavailability.

To get extra therapeutic benefits we can now use supplements, with high strength curcumin extract.


Why Curcumin Protects Your Brain

Curcumin works as both an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory.

Antioxidants are essential throughout the body for stopping free radicals from damaging your cells. With its antioxidant activity, curcumin helps protect brain cells from oxidative stress.

To protect brain health, we similarly need to combat inflammation. Curcumin is well-known as a powerful anti-inflammatory; that’s why it’s so widely used for joint pain.

Inflammation doesn’t always cause immediate pain as with arthritis or menstrual cramps. Where inflammation is a risk factor for age-related cognitive impairment, issues with memory or attention could be the first symptoms.

Inflammation is associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and curcumin has been found to reduce concentrations of beta-amyloid protein.

Curcumin enhances brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that promotes the neuroplasticity and growth of neurons. This means that improving BDNF levels promotes cognitive function through adaptation and regeneration.

In this age of chronic disease and mental fatigue, incorporating curcumin into your daily routine is a positive contribution to your long-term brain health and overall well-being.

So with your next City Survivor order, add this powerful Curcumin supplement and say goodbye to brain fog!
