Atlantia needs you
That’s the question from Atlantia Clinical Trials as it recently launched a new study investigating if a turmeric supplement can help to maintain and/or improve cognitive function in healthy older adults.
Atlantia Clinical Trials said turmeric has been used for centuries as a traditional herbal medicine for its potential as an anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant product but its use is limited due to its low absorption when consumed orally.
The turmeric being investigated in this study has been shown to have a much higher absorption than alternative products currently on the market, even at lower doses.
Participants of this study will complete a series of cognitive function assessments to measure any changes in cognitive performance.
It is hoped that those taking the turmeric supplement will see an overall slower decline in memory loss. Memory loss must be confirmed by a family member or a close friend.
Successful applicants for this study will take part over a six month period, taking the turmeric supplement daily, completing a few health questionnaires and attending four visits to Atlantia’s clinic in Blackpool, across that period.
As is standard with all their studies, each volunteer is offered a free health check at their visit and a full blood test.
Each participant will receive €500 upon completion of the study in return for their time.
