The Amazing Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin
Turmeric (non-GMO) is one of nature's most powerful healers, with the active ingredient being curcumin. Popularly used in Indian cuisine, turmeric root has been shown to have a broad number of possible nourishing effects. Turmeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.
Turmeric is a nutritional powerhouse
The medicinal properties of this spice have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. Recent research has revealed that turmeric is a natural wonder, proving beneficial for many different health conditions.
Among some of the most interesting turmeric health benefits and recent scientific findings:
Brain nourishment: The 2003 study in Italy as published in the Italian Journal of Biochemistry showed that Turmeric may support a healthy brain and nervous system. Another study conducted at UCLA and published in the December 2004 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, which has been confirmed by further research published online April 20, 2006, in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, provides further insight as to how Turmeric provides multiple areas of protection against the mechanisms that may support conditions related to brain health. This research was so profoundly exciting to researchers that human clinical trials to further investigate Turmeric's potential will soon be underway.
May support a healthy inflammation response: Turmeric's ability to support a healthy inflammation response been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents such as Motrin. And unlike lab-produced pharmaceutical drugs, Turmeric has been shown to produce no toxicity, nor the kinds of stomach problems that commonly occur with pharmaceuticals with this same purpose.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Many clinical studies have shown that the antioxidant properties of Turmeric may support the body's ability to fight the free radicals responsible for joint health issues. Turmeric's combination of antioxidant and supporting a healthy inflammation response effect explains why many people with joint health issues possibly find relief when they use the spice regularly, and in a recent study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, Turmeric was compared to phenylbutazone and produced comparable improvements in shortened duration of a variety of issues.
Cystic Fibrosis: Curcumin, the major constituent of turmeric that gives the spice its yellow color, may support healthy gene expression, as suggested by an animal study published in the April 2004 issue of Science. Cystic fibrosis, a fatal disease that attacks the lungs with thick mucus, causing life-threatening infections, and afflicts about 30,000 American children and young adults, who rarely survive beyond 30 years of age.
Cellular mutation Prevention: Turmeric's antioxidant effects help protect the colon cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA -- a significant benefit particularly in the colon where cell turnover is quite rapid. By improving liver function, it also helps the body to destroy mutated cells so that they cannot spread through the body and cause more harm. Even more interesting, when Turmeric was combined with the vegetable Cauliflower, the protection against cell mutation in the colon was even more pronounced, leading researchers to believe the combination of cruciferous vegetables and curcumin could be an "effective therapy not only to prevent prostate problems but to inhibit the spread of established prostate problems". Time to start eating cauliflower with turmeric!
May support a healthy liver: recent studies have shown that Turmeric increases the detoxification enzymes in the liver, so much so that one set of researchers commented, "Turmeric used widely as a spice would probably mitigate the effects of several dietary carcinogens". In our polluted, often carcinogenic laden environment, diet, and lifestyles these days, this is very beneficial
If you have gout, try turmeric as a home remedy. Its most active chemical, curcumin, has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This may help ease gout-related inflammation and pain. When eaten in foods, turmeric is generally safe
Iron Chelator: Turmeric is categorized into food that can decrease iron absorption by 20 per cent to 90 per cent, depending on its intake. This happens due to the stoichiometric qualities of turmeric which help it to bind all the absorbable iron thereby reducing excess iron from both the bloodstream as well as the cells of the body.
From supporting a healthy cardiovascular system to serving as a great source of vitamin B6 to further overall anti-oxidization, detoxification and blood-brain benefits, the health benefits of Turmeric continue to be revealed and discovered by new scientific studies each year.
