Dr. Gary Small, Director of Geriatric Psychiatry at UCLA’s Longevity Center and the Geriatric Psychiatry Division at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, led a team of researchers to determine the impact of a specific form of curcumin on memory performance, and the presence of microscopic plaques and tangles in the brains of patients. The double-blind, placebo-controlled study involved 40 adults between the ages of 50 and 90 years who had mild memory complaints.* Participants were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or 90 milligrams of Theracurmin twice daily for 18 months. “The study results provide findings that suggest meaningful cognitive benefits (of curcumin)” said Bob Doster, Ph.D.*
