Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2015 -- Today, there are many natural supplements that are believed to be more therapeutic than pharmaceutical drugs, and one is curcumin. Curcumin is a phytochemical found in the ancient, medicinal spice called turmeric. There are many health benefits associated with the use of curcumin, and many are favorable to men.
Experts reveal the various therapeutic effects of curcumin in men. For centuries, practitioners of traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine have been using the spice. These centuries of use are backed up by modern science.
Turmeric (and its phytochemical called curcumin) has been a subject of more than 5,600 studies. These research studies revealed that the spice has the potential to offer over 600 therapeutic and preventive health benefits.
Men who are prone to or suffering from diabetes may reap the health benefits of using turmeric. Those who also experience threats in their prostate health may look into the use of the spice.
According to a 2009 study, curcumin has the potential to be 400 times more potent than a particular diabetes drug. Its curcuminoids contain compounds called tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC), which the study found to be 100,000 times more effective than the said diabetes drug. The antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties of the natural ingredient are also thought to support prostate health.
Turmeric is also beneficial for the heart. Men who have undergone a by-pass surgery are particularly benefited from the use of the therapeutic ingredient. Men who suffer from digestive problems such as peptic ulcers may also benefit from the use of the spice.
Both curcumin and turmeric are also believed to be beneficial for psychological health. They have been used in Chinese medicine to treat depression. In a 2011 study, it was found that curcumin's therapeutic benefits are comparable to popular anti-depressant drugs.
One of the most popular uses of curcumin is its positive effects on pain and inflammation, particularly among arthritis sufferers. Many men who suffer from arthritis take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to achieve pain relief and improved mobility. However, the use of these medications is associated with side effects, some of which produce long-term health disadvantages.
Curcumin supplements are widely believed to be as effective as these medications at producing pain relief and improved mobility. However, they are safer to use since they do not cause side effects.
While curcumin is believed to be highly therapeutic, it is low bioavailable, which limits the delivery of its nutrients inside the body. The good news is that there are curcumin supplements that contain a black pepper extract such as BioPerine, which is a bioavailability enhancing ingredient (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I ).
