Curcumin and Magnesium for Brain Health, Part 1


Protocol for Life Balance Senior Nutrition Education Manager Neil Levin weighs in on nutritional strategies for preventing cognitive decline. While BigPharma flounders in its multi-billion-dollar efforts to find a “magic bullet” drug against Alzheimer’s Disease, an estimated 28 million Baby Boomers are destined to suffer from the debilitating condition by mid-century. A new study suggests that simple lifestyle changes can mitigate risk even in those with Alzheimer’s genes. Levin discusses the science substantiating the brain benefits of curcumin and magnesium. But bio-availability is a problem; most forms of curcumin and magnesium don’t cross the blood-brain barrier. Levin highlights research on Curcumin SPLC (Cogumin) and magnesium threonate (Protosorb Magnesium). Other ancillary nutrients like phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, bacopa, huperzine, CoQ10, fish oil and tocotrienols also deserve consideration in a brain-protective regimen.
