Clinical Research Finds Curcumin Compounds to Be a Natural Solution to Tuberculosis


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/02/2015 -- Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice that is believed to have very powerful therapeutic benefits. Its healing powers are believed to come from its phytochemical called curcumin. Curcumin contains therapeutic ingredients such as those with antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. The use of curcumin supplements is associated with a wide variety of health benefits.

Clinical research finds curcumin compounds to be a natural solution to tuberculosis. When combined with conventional therapy or other herbs, it can also help lessen the risk of side effects caused by pharmaceutical drugs in the liver.

Studies revealed that one-third of individuals worldwide are suffering from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is a bacterium that causes tuberculosis. Most of the sufferers have a latent form of infection where the bacteria is inactive.

"Curcumin supplements are widely used nowadays especially among individuals who suffer from certain medical conditions," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to experts, people who have a weak immune system are more likely to have the bacterium that is inactive, which eventually results in a full-blown disease. One can acquire the condition by breathing enough Myobacterium tuberculosis. For instance, when a person with active tuberculosis in the lungs sneezes, coughs, or talks, it makes the bacteria airborne. This is how the infection spreads from one person to another. Places such as hospitals that have high infection rates should be avoided.

There are several symptoms caused by the condition, and they include feeling weak and tired, coughing up blood, fever and chills, unexplained weight loss, and night sweats. People can increase their protection against the infection by using personal respiratory protective devices. Once the infection becomes active, it actually affects the lungs.

Lab experiments were conducted to see the effects of curcumin on the condition. It was found that the compounds have demonstrated promising antibacterial activity against tuberculosis. There were also animal studies that revealed a greater success of turmeric against tuberculosis than what was demonstrated in the lab tests. Further research studies revealed that the combination of curcumin and copper is very effective against TB.

Curcumin supplements can be purchased at grocery or health stores, or online. While curcumin is believed to be highly therapeutic, it has low bioavailability and this limits its absorption inside the body. Curcumin supplements that come with a bioavailability enhancing ingredient, such as BioPerine, are widely favored nowadays. Experts recommend the use of curcumin supplements with BioPerine as they are believed to be absorbed more effectively by the body (
