More Researchers Are Studying the Effects of Turmeric on Lung Health


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- The number of individuals who are suffering from preventable but fatal diseases has continually been increasing. Pharmaceutical corporations have been producing medications that could at least allow people to manage conditions that cannot be prevented or treated.

Although medications are the widely known treatment option today, there are still a huge number of individuals who use natural alternatives. Natural ingredients such as turmeric have been known to have many powerful healing properties. As a matter of fact, more researchers are studying the effects of turmeric for lung health.

“Turmeric is an ancient spice that has been used for thousands of years as a cooking ingredient and a medicine. Many health experts believe that it offers an extensive range of therapeutic benefits. This is one of the reasons why many people have been using the spice as part of their daily diet,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

New research has indicated that the curcumin contained in turmeric is a powerful healing substance that may have applications in significantly improving lung health. These studies found that the chemo-preventive, anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory properties may be responsible for its therapeutic benefits in the lungs.

The Journal of Experimental Medicine and Biology reported that curcumin plays a major protective role in acute lung injury, obstructive pulmonary disease, allergic asthma and acute respiratory distress syndrome. Further research found that curcumin may be a potential therapeutic agent that can help fight chronic lung disease.

“The antioxidants, which are abundant in turmeric, are also believed to be very helpful in protecting cells from damage. Its strength is comparable to that of vitamin C,” added O’Sullivan.

Albeit many studies have been conducted to test the effects of turmeric in lung health, more and more clinical trials are continually exploring the benefits of the spice. Despite ongoing studies, many consumers are already convinced of the benefits of the spice, with curcumin supplements steadily growing in popularity (
