Central nervous system disorders are of greater importance and it has been evident in traditional books that spices can protect and cure neuronal ailments. Many spices found in India such as turmeric, pepper, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, onion, garlic and nutmeg are used for culinary purpose and have been found to have reported specific activities against brain disorders.
