Dementia is largely caused by oxidative stress and the build-up of plaque in the brain, making it difficult for certain areas of the brain to be accessed due to non-use. However, in India, where turmeric is widely used as an ingredient in food preparation, dementia is not seen as often. This is believed to be due to turmeric’s inhibitory effect on meta-amyloid, which is the basic source of the plaque that can develop in the brain. Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, has other stimulating and antioxidant effects that can slow the development of dementia in people as they age.
