Turmeric for a Brain Boost

I remember a few years ago, two of our supervisors from India, were so excited when our company, Herbalife was introducing Rose Guard because it had Turmeric in it. It is such a popular herb in India, they eat curry everyday and the Alzheimer's disease rate is one-fourth the U. S. rate. A recent study in University of California, Los Angeles study in mice showed that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, it gives it the yellow color, broke up brain plaques of amyloid beta, the abnormal protein buildup that is found in Alzheimer's patients. So you can take a tablet for prevention.

Also a healthy recipe for brain boosting - Toss 2 cups of cubed chicken, 2 teaspoons curry powder. Saute in olive oil til done, then cool and add to your taste, raisins, diced apples, chopped celery, chopped almonds & low fat yogurt.
