Because of its antioxidant properties, it combats the oxidative damage caused by depression. It scavenges free radicals, increasing glutathione levels in the brain. This promotes the repair of free-radical induced damage. Curcumin also increases Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor levels. BDNF is the protein that controls learning, long-term memory and mood. Having low levels of it is associated with depression and poor learning.
