Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/08/2016 -- While there is a myriad of pharmaceutical drugs available nowadays, more and more people are turning to the use of natural alternatives such as curcumin supplements. This natural ingredient is believed to offer a range of health benefits, including those that are favorable to the heart.
Curcumin is one of the extraordinarily useful supplements for congestive heart failure. While it shouldn't be a replacement for medications, it is believed to be helpful in increasing the efficacy of pharmaceutical drugs prescribed for the condition.
According to research, curcumin has the potential ability to prevent the tissue destruction in the heart. It could also make a particularly common blood pressure medicine even more effective, especially in the treatment of congestive heart failure.
Congestive heart failure takes place when the heart becomes unable to keep up with the demands of the body for circulation. It is believed that myocardial infarction induces tissue damage through heart attack, and this causes congestive heart failure. The condition may also result from constant heavy exercise, moving to high altitude, or any conditions and circumstances that require high demand on the heart.
There are various symptoms of congestive heart failure such as swelling in the areas around the feet and ankles. A slight puffiness in the feet may also suggest the occurrence of congestive heart failure. Other symptoms include shortness of breath or dyspnea.
The New York Health Association identifies shortness of breath in classifying the stages I to IV of congestive heart failure. The association reveals that individuals who experience shortness of breath after exercising moderately may be experiencing stage I congestive heart failure. Stage II is when one is out of breath by just lying down.
There are certain factors believed to trigger the development of the condition such as unhealthy diet and lifestyle. It can also be triggered by other diseases and conditions such as obesity and pregnancy.
"In the worst cases, healthcare providers recommend coronary bypass or a heart transplant," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Experts believe that curcumin fights congestive heart failure by blocking a certain enzyme. This enzyme triggers a process that causes damage in the heart muscles. The heart may need to work harder than it should due to the tissue damage, and this may require the cells to undergo a process called hypertrophy.
Curcumin is believed to be effective in stopping the action of histone acetylases on heart DNA as well as prevent hypertrophy. It is thought to help the hear achieve a synchronized heartbeat, and this encourages even and efficient flow of the blood from the heart to the rest of the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
