Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2016 -- Bile is one of the unrecognized fluids that plays an important role in the health of the digestive system. The importance of bile cannot be overlooked, and should always be taken into account in choosing treatments for individuals who have digestive problems.
Curcumin is potentially helpful in increasing the release of bile and may even improve the health of the digestive system. Bile is a yellow-green fluid produced by liver cells called hepatocytes. It is stored in the gall bladder and is composed of water, bile salts, cholesterol, and pigments.
Bile aids in fat digestion, and it contains sodium and potassium. It also has bilirubin, which usually forms when the red blood cells break down. Bile fluids can also be composed of copper and other metals. Bile works by eliminating waste products as well as breaking down the fats from food. It has bile salts that break down and absorb fats.
Turmeric is a unique ancient spice that is widely believed to aid in digestion as well as ease symptoms of dyspepsia. According to several studies, turmeric may help regulate bile production as well as digestion. In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study, it was found that curcumin could be effective in fighting digestive problems. Curcumin is the active ingredient of turmeric and is thought to be responsible for many of the spice's potentially therapeutic benefits.
Curcumin is believed to contain anti-carcinogenic, anti-septic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. This phytochemical has the potential ability to stimulate the gall bladder and trigger it to release bile.
The release of bile can improve digestion as well as reduce the symptoms of bloating or gas, which are typically caused by dyspepsia and indigestion. Curcumin's possible antioxidant properties may also offer protection to the immune system by potentially attacking free radicals and preventing cell damage.
Curcumin is thought to have the ability to improve the bile flow, and thus, possibly protect the bile duct. Thus, it has the potential to cleanse the liver, may rejuvenate the liver cells, and could even aid in the optimal functioning of the liver. This could possibly prevent alcohol and toxins from turning into harmful compounds, which damages the liver and causes cirrhosis.
Today, turmeric can be easily and efficiently consumed through curcumin supplementation. There are many curcumin supplements available for individuals who may want to take advantage of the phytochemical's potential therapeutic benefits.
Curcumin supplements that contain a potentially bioavailability-enhancing ingredient called piperine are extremely popular nowadays. Piperine is a black pepper extract that may increase curcumin absorption inside the body. (http://www.amazon.com/tumeric-curcumin-with-piperine/dp/B0166KAW8M)
