How does turmeric improve memory and mood? What are the benefits of turmeric for memory and concentration? How does Longvida® curcumin help improve mental fatigue and memory?
Longvida® curcumin improves memory in healthy people
In 2015, researchers from the University of Swinburne (Australia) conducted a study on the effects of Longvida® curcumin on cognition.
More specifically, they observed effects on mood, mental fatigue and working memory in a healthy, middle-aged population between 60 and 80 years of age (Cox et al. 2014).
After 4 weeks of administration, they found that daily supplementation with Longvida® curcumin (400 mg) produced significant improvements in working memory. They also reported a reduction in mental fatigue.
A new clinical trial confirms the benefits of curcumin on memory in people between 50 and 80 years of age.
In 2020, the same researchers published the results of a new clinical trial (Cox et al. 2020). They assessed in particular the impact of Longvida® curcumin on cognitive functions, but over a longer period, i.e. 12 weeks.
Clinical Trial Design
The researchers wanted to confirm the effects of Longvida® curcumin after 12 weeks in an age range of 50 to 80 years.
This double-blind, placebo-controlled study involved eighty healthy participants between the ages of 50 and 80. Participants were randomized to receive 400 mg/day of Longvida® curcumin or a placebo equivalent.
After an initial assessment, results were measured at 4 and 12 weeks.
Investigators evaluated cognitive performance, mood measures, cardiovascular function and several other blood biomarkers. It is noted that throughout the study, Longvida® formula was very well tolerated without serious adverse effects.
Results of the study
The results confirm those obtained in the previous study.
Taking a curcumin preparation with a high bioavailability significantly improved working memory and reduced fatigue of the participants. A slight increase in circulating glucose was also observed.
The study by Dr. Scholey and colleagues confirms that Longvida® curcumin improves aspects of mood, working memory and mental fatigue in healthy people.
