Answer:

Laboratory and animals studies have shown that curcumin inhibits several biological and chemical processes in brain cells associated with the development of Alzheimer's disease, and may act similarly to some drugs currently used to treat symptoms (Aricept, Razadyne). And, in animal models of the disease, oral supplementation with curcumin has shown some benefit. However, the few studies that have been conducted in people with Alzheimer's disease have found little benefit (although it may improve cognitive function in healthy older adults).
