The journal Cancer Research finds that “the natural phenol can slow prostate tumor growth by blocking receptors used to propagate cell tissue growth”.

Curcumin has inherent mechanism “to target the amyloid fibrils associated with the unnatural progression of protein-like plaque tangles that are characteristic in Alzheimer’s disease patients”.
