Curcumin Studies Show Potential for Numerous Health Benefits


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2014 -- Turmeric is an ancient spice that many people in various parts of the world use to add flavor, color, and nutrients to their dishes. It is especially popular in Burma and several parts of the Indian subcontinent. However, there is more to turmeric than being an ancient spice as it contains powerful properties that provide a wide variety of health benefits.

Recent studies appear to support the ancient claims of Indians stating that the spice has some strong medicinal properties. According to these studies, the curcumin contained in turmeric has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties.

“With every new study, it seems like we're discovering yet another health benefit to consuming turmeric or curcumin. It truly is an incredible plant,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

It is believed that turmeric can significantly help improve the immune system and digestive health. Researchers found that the spice can help maintain cholesterol levels and healthy liver and blood functions. Curcumin also has properties that support healthy joints, bones and skeletal system, and this is why it is also considered to be effective in providing pain relief for arthritis patients.

Scientists who studied the health benefits of turmeric also found that it can potentially neutralize free radicals and slow down the signs of aging. Those who are at risk of brain disease may benefit from taking turmeric, as the curcumin it contains can boost brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which improves brain function. The antioxidants contained in turmeric are also believed to have the capacity to promote heart health, skin health and support memory function.

Turmeric can be consumed in various forms, including use as a cooking spice or through curcumin supplements. Supplements are particularly popular, as they provide much more concentrated doses that are more easily absorbed by the body, especially when combined with a black pepper extract for enhanced curcumin absorption
