This literature review seeks to contribute information on what is already known about the neurological effects of DHA omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (DHA O3PUFAs) and curcumin, and compare the two substances’ abilities to clear ß-amyloid and alleviate the pathophysiological burden posed by ß-amyloid accumulation. Learning about what natural dietary substances increase β-amyloid clearance has possible implications for improving the conditions of the millions of people living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) in terms of increasing life expectancy, creating a healthier way of life, and coming closer to eventually finding a cure.
