UCLA Study on Turmeric/Circumin

UCLA did a research project and reported on it about 10 months ago involving Turmeric, an Indian spice.

In India AD is virtually non existent (1% of over 65year olds) and this is what prompted this research project. A compound in turmeric called circumin was tested on rats who had an injection of amyloid in their brains to mimic AD.

Circumin reduced the accumulation of beta-amyloid, the plaque that causes AD,as well as reducing inflammation in neurological tissue.

I was wondering if any body since this research came out had tried using Turmeric/Circumin and if so what where the results?

Thanks
