Anecdotal and Scientific Evidence Suggest Curcumin Has the Potential to Combat Diseases


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/08/2015 -- A wide variety of diseases are continually affecting the lives of millions of people. The good news is that many of the prevalent medical conditions nowadays are possibly preventable through practicing a healthy diet and lifestyle, or consuming some dietary supplements such as turmeric.

Anecdotal and scientific evidence suggest that curcumin has the potential to combat a variety of diseases. Curcumin is the key ingredient of turmeric, and it contains high levels of powerful therapeutic properties. Today, many people are resorting to curcumin supplements to improve their overall condition or increase their protection against diseases.

New research reveals that a modified formulation of turmeric has the ability to release its anti-inflammatory properties throughout the body. Curcumin has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as an aid for various conditions such as diabetes, allergies and ulcers.

"Many people use turmeric powder when cooking delectable dishes. Turmeric powder doesn't just add flavor and color to dishes, but is also a very healthy cooking ingredient," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to anecdotal and scientific evidence, curcumin potentially offers a variety of healthy benefits due to its ability to lower inflammation. However, the therapeutic ingredient has low bio-availability and it doesn't get absorbed in the body efficiently. Curcumin often stays in the gastrointestinal tract, and the portion absorbed is quickly metabolized. This is why herbal companies make curcumin available with bio-availability enhancing ingredients such as black pepper.

Various research groups have conducted studies and trials to determine the effects of curcumin on disorders ranging from osteoarthritis to colon cancer. The scientists from the Ohio State University, for instance, are trying to figure out whether it is useful to enable the widespread availability of the biological effects of curcumin for combating diseases, especially when used therapeutically and as a daily supplement.

Nicholas Young, lead author of the study and a postdoctoral researcher in rheumatology and immunology at Ohio State, believes that there's a reason why turmeric has been widely used for hundreds of years. He also added that the study suggests they have identified an effective way to increase curcumin's bio-availability and make better use of its anti-inflammatory benefits by knowing what diseases to use it for.

The best curcumin supplements available in the market today also contain a bio-availability enhancing ingredient such as BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract. According to several studies, this black pepper extract makes an ideal combination of curcumin (
