Bioponic Phytoceuticals Announces That Its Curecumin Product May Be an Effective Treatment for Alzheimer's Disease

KULA, Hawaii, January 22, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bioponic Phytoceuticals, Inc. ("Bioponic" or "the Company") today announced that its Curecumin(TM) product (a Bioresonant Phytotherapeutic(TM) form of Turmeric) may be an important treatment and/or preventative for Alzheimer's Disease.

UCLA/VA researchers found that curcumin (an active compound found in Turmeric) may help the immune system clear the brain of the amyloid beta plaques found in Alzheimer's disease patients. Recently published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease the findings may lead to a new approach in treating Alzheimer's disease by enhancing the natural function of the immune system using curcumin, known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. According to a research study conducted at UCLA Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, "There is substantial in-vitro data indicating that curcumin is a promising agent in the treatment and/or prevention of AD."

It is estimated by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America that "Alzheimer's disease currently strikes an estimated 5.8 million Americans. It is projected that the number could more than triple to 16 million by mid-century."

"We are particularly interested in the potential of our Curecumin(TM) nasal spray to deliver its benefits directly to the brain through the nasal cavity. If proven effective, we may have an efficacious, cost effective, natural treatment for the millions of Alzheimer's sufferers, and for those who seek to prevent the disease. With 75 million aging baby boomers the potential for this product is significant," said Steven M. Schorr, Chairman & CEO - Bioponic Phytoceuticals, Inc.
