A separate trial by the same research group found that rodent neural stem cells grew when they were bathed in a solution of aromatic-turmerone. The cells bathed in the turmeric compound also appeared to specialize into certain types of brain cells more rapidly.
Dr Rueger told the BBC: “It…

You’re taught to slather on the store-bought deodorant sticks at puberty. Neglect the ritual and you’ll be ostracized for eternity; doomed to life in musty caves with your fellow pungent trolls. Fear not, this stuff works!
