Interesting thought...

Posted by linkadge on December 6, 2020, at 7:48:48

So, I've been reading quite a bit about how depression is associated with altered gut bacteria (with a shift towards more pro-inflammatory strains).

With this in mind, here is a thought. Apparently supplements like turmeric don't readily cross the blood brain barrier and are apparently not absorbed well into systemic circulation. My question is this. Does that really matter? Is it possible that turmeric (or other medicinal herbs) don't actually need to enter the blood stream or brain to have an effect?

Could turmeric (simply by passing through the digestive system) reduce inflammation in the digestive system (and/or alter the composition of gut bacteria) in a way that improves mood?
