Curcumin Supplements Considered Helpful in People Suffering from Asthma


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2014 -- Many people believe that natural remedies are a safe and effective alternative to medications. Curcumin supplements are usually popular among arthritis sufferers. However, it appears that there is a lot more about curcumin than just being a joint pain relief option.

According to research, curcumin supplements are considered helpful in people suffering from asthma. It is suggested that curcumin can be used in various ways to treat asthma symptoms. The spice is believed to significantly help relieve congestion, eliminate phlegm, and relieve irritation of bronchioles. It has also been shown to have applications in preventing asthma attacks and as a strong expectorant.

Curcumin comes from an ancient spice known as turmeric, which has long been considered a medicinal kitchen ingredient for thousands of years. Today, it is widely available both in powder and supplement form for ease of consumption.

“Studies indicate that curcumin has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Many people, especially those suffering from or susceptible to having asthma, believe that using this particular natural alternative is highly favorable,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

A study that was published in the Archives of Medical Research found that curcumin has therapeutic properties that are as effective as the prescription steroid dexamethasone, which is normally used to treat asthma.

Many asthma sufferers claim that they have experienced the positive effects of using turmeric or curcumin supplements. They stated that the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin have helped them find relief from tightness in the airways and chest. Most of them incorporated turmeric in their meals or drinks while others used curcumin supplements. Some asthma patients also claimed that the turmeric was really helpful especially during attacks.

“While preliminary studies show positive results, it is very important that those suffering from asthma consult with their physician before making any changes to their health regime,” added O’Sullivan.

Curcumin supplements are believed to be more efficient than simply adding the spice to a meal, as they provide a more concentrated dose. Experts also suggest supplements that contain a black pepper extract to increase curcumin absorption in the body
