What is it about?

CURCUMIN IS AN IMPORTANT NATURAL ANTIOXIDANT MOLECULE. WE HAVE SHOWN FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT IT IS EFFECTIVE AGAINST THE OXIDATIVE DAMAGE AND INFLAMMATION TO THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAUSED BY INHALED OZONE. HUMAN POPULATIONS INHABITING IN HIGHLY POLLUTED CITIES COULD BE PROTECTED THROUGH DIETARY CONSUMPTION OF CURCUMIN.

Why is it important?

IT IS IMPORTANT TO REDUCE THE OXIDATIVE DAMAGE AND NEUROINFLAMATION DUE TO THEIR INVOLVEMENT IN THE PATHOGENESIS OF NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES. FURTHERMORE, CURCUMIN IS A SAFE MOLECULE AND NO IMPORTANT SIDE EFFECTS HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED.

Perspectives

THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN TO SHOW THAT OXIDATIVE DAMAGE AND NEUROINFLAMMATION CAUSED BY OZONE AS AIR POLLUTANT CAN BE PREVENTED AND REVERTED BY DIETARY CONSUMPTION OF CURCUMIN. MAINLY BECAUSE NEURONAL DAMAGE BY OZONE DAMAGES THE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
