Take you Favorite Curry Dish with you to the ER???

Neuroprotective Against Stroke And Traumatic Brain Injury Discovered In Compound Derived From Curry Spice

One compound, called CNB-001, which was derived from curcumin, the active ingredient in the spice turmeric, proved highly neuroprotective in all of the assays; it also enhanced memory in normal animals.
TBA is the only approved drug that ameliorates the behavioral and memory changes resulting from stroke but only in 20% of the time.

Although 20% doesn't seem like very much but if it lessens the terrible damage that strokes cause and it's you that's facing paralysis and lifelong disabilities even 20% is more of a chance than you had before before.
