Turmeric

Turmeric contains the antioxidant curcumin which gives it anti-inflammatory properties, making it good for brain health.

It’s a great spice to add to creamy curries, as dissolved into fat its bioavailability may increase.

Sage

One of the typical markers of Alzheimer’s is reduced levels of acetylcholine, a chemical messenger in the brain.

Research out of the Medical Research Council’s Neurochemical Pathology Unit at Newcastle General Hospital has shown that sage oil can inhibit the breakdown of acetylcholine.

Sage is a great addition to marinades and sauces, or try adding a few dry leaves to your honey or vinegar.

Black pepper

One of the most commonly purchased and consumed spices in the world, a University of Niš study has revealed that the alkaloid piperine – the main component in black pepper – helps to improve cognitive function.
