As mentioned previously, curcumin is one of the most powerful ways to combat joint pain and inflammation on the planet.
And as research continues to helps us to understand the human body better, scientists are uncovering even more ways curcumin benefits your entire body, from brain health all the way to your skin.
1. Memory Impairment: High systemic inflammation can lead to brain inflammation, and when this happens, a variety of normal functions are hindered such as the formation of new memories, and the ability to recall memories. Recent research suggests also suggests a concerning link between memory impairment and the presence of neurological inflammation.
In a recent study, it was found that daily intake of curcumin helped a group of adults over 60 with improvements in short-term memory (although this group consisted of adults who were already predisposed to memory loss). Despite that, curcumin essentially boosted memory for several hours!
Another study found that curcumin stimulates brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a key hormone responsible for proper brain function. Decreased levels of BDNF have been linked to an increase risk of depression and Alzheimers disease.
2. Mood Swings: While neurotransmitter imbalances may underlying cause of mood issues, research suggests imbalances may be associated with inflammation in the brain.
For instance, a 2014 study demonstrated that curcumin functions as well as a popular mainstream solution for mood support, without any dangerous side effects.
3.Heart Issues: C-reactive protein (CRP) is one of the key markers of inflammation linked to heart problems, and the higher levels of CRP, the greater your risk for heart disease.
A recent meta-analysis revealed that curcumin can lower levels of CRP.Research also shows that curcumin also acts as a cholesterol antioxidant, which is important because the oxidation of cholesterol threatens cardiovascular health. Curcumin may also be helpful in preventing clot formation while lowering "bad cholesterol" (LDL) and boosting "good" cholesterol (HDL). 
4.Digestive Problems: One of the main contributors to digestive complaints as one ages includes hyperactive inflammatory responses in the gut. If left untreated, this can cause unwanted consequences such as an altered gut microbiota.
Thanks to curcumin's anti-inflammatory benefits, this natural herb may aid in promoting digestive health. In fact, one recent study suggests curcumin was responsible for a 25% reduction in digestive discomfort, with over half of the participants reporting overall improvement in digestive function.
