Eat Curry and Banish Bad Memories

0

A recent study suggests that a spice used commonly in curry can help in erasing bad memories. A bright-yellow compound found in turmeric, which is also present in Curcumin prevents storage of new fear memories in the brain. The compound also removed fear memories that were already stored.

A research was conducted in The City University, New York by Psychologists. They found that the rats became scared after hearing a particular sound. The rats froze after hearing a particular sound as they were frightened.

After a few hours, when the same sound was played again to the rats. Those that were given ordinary food froze. But those who were given a curcumin rich diet did not freeze. Thus, it was concluded that fearful memories were erased.
