Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/13/2014 -- An extensive range of clinical studies have been conducted to explore more of the health benefits of turmeric. The liver benefits of turmeric have also been widely studied by scientists and health experts, and the ancient spice has now become widely popular that patients who are experiencing liver-associated conditions.

According to studies, an increasing number of hepatitis patients are using turmeric to relieve their condition. The therapeutic benefits of the spice have impressed many people especially those who are suffering from ailments that are liver-associated.

Scientists believe that protecting the liver, even if it is already burdened with a disease, is one of the best ways to avoid further damage. They believe that the active ingredient in turmeric, known as curcumin, has powerful anti-inflammatory agents that can significantly help protect the liver.

There were quite a number of studies that showed curcumin has protected from liver damage in rats. It is believed that curcumin can help fight acute liver damage and liver cirrhosis by detoxifying toxic chemicals and enzymes. In addition, it has been suggested that curcumin can potentially stop the damage cause by hepatitis.

Liver diseases such as hepatitis C is the result of inflammation in the liver. This condition can cause jaundice and liver cirrhosis if not treated.

“Animal tests indicate that the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric could be responsible for regaining and improving the health of the liver. With these anti-inflammatory properties, scientists could potentially develop a way to treat liver disorders such as hepatitis B and C,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
