Curcumin Research Suggests The Botanical May Have An Array Of Medicinal Uses
Promising results in initial studies prompt further testing for curcucmin applications
"The curcuminoids contained in turmeric work to help the body relieve joint inflammation and ease pain," said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan."It's only now that modern medical science is learning about the many benefits that can be found in specific botanicals around the world."
Turmeric is a plant that has potent properties that have been regularly accessed by medical practitioners in India and Asia for millennia to treat a variety of diseases and conditions. Curcumin isn't a magic wand providing instantaneous results. The benefits are cumulative in nature and curcumin is normally paired with black pepper extract for enhanced absorption.
Curcumin is believed to be a natural anti-inflammatory that works at the cellular level, providing the body with nutrients required for joint health. It also seems to be a potent antioxidant that neutralizes enzyme-creating free radicals that contribute to the breakdown of cartilage and other soft tissues.
Research indicates it supports the immune system and has been linked in some studies to improved brain function, achieved by inhibiting the production of chemicals in the body that contribute to neuro-degeneration. Studies suggest curcumin could be instrumental in heart health by strengthening vascular linings.
Promising results have been achieved in laboratory tests when using curcumin to reduce the growth of cancerous cells. Early research has shown that curcumin is effective in affecting the type of plaque platelets that appear in Alzheimer's disease, but more testing is required for a definitive determination.
Depression affects millions of people and early testing revealed that the curcuminoids in turmeric can have a definite impact on mood. Results were similar to those achieved through prescription medication, but without adverse side effects.
Beneficial effects have been attributed to curcumin for addressing ills ranging from flatulence, jaundice and menstrual difficulties to migraines, bronchitis and liver and gall bladder problems. It has also undergone testing for its antiseptic properties and abilities as an anti-fungal agent.
While much more testing will be required, the many attributes of curcumin may hold the key to opening new avenues of medicinal use. For now, the promising results from initial tests have more and more consumers turning to curcumin supplements.
