Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2015 -- For many decades, people from around the world have been using a variety of antibiotics to fight bacteria-related infections. Unfortunately, some of these medications do not only cause side effects but also antibiotic resistance, especially when they are used for a prolonged period.
Experts find turmeric an excellent natural alternative to antibiotic drugs to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance. Today, many people do not only rely on the use of pharmaceutical drugs, but also on natural ingredients such as turmeric supplements.
"Turmeric's healing benefits are thought to come from its phytochemical called curcumin," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
The Center of Disease Dynamics, Economics, & Policy (CDDEP), the United States is the fifth of the top users of antibiotics around the world. Antibiotic resistance cannot only be obtained from pharmaceutical drugs, but also in factory foods such as meat and dairy products.
According to experts, there are several potential causes of antibiotics resistance. It could be due to unintentional or abusive ingestion of antibiotic-based foods or heavy prescription. While antibiotics are useful in fighting infectious conditions, constant or long-term use can result in resistance to the drug.
Antibiotic resistance is thought to develop when the harmful bacteria inside the body start to get used to the presence of the therapeutic properties of the drug, and thus, they stop responding to them. This means that the antibiotic can become incapable of treating an underlying infection once the body has already developed resistance to it.
Resistance to antibiotics is believed to encourage the destruction of healthy bacteria, the faster spread of the infection, and death. It can be avoided by washing the hands thoroughly to avoid infection, consuming organic foods, and choosing natural antibiotics like turmeric.
Natural antibiotics such as turmeric are thought to be a safe solution to bacterial infection problems. The curcumin in turmeric is thought to offer a range of benefits. Curcumin contains anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties, which are thought to be helpful in scavenging and inhibiting the growth of bacteria.
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. The spice is not just available through powder form but also as a supplement. It has been thought to be an excellent remedy in fighting a range of medical conditions. It is also used to disinfect and heal wounds.
Today, turmeric has become widely available through curcumin supplementation. While curcumin is highly therapeutic, it has low bioavailability. This means its absorption inside the body is limited. The good news is that there are curcumin supplements with a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient called BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
