More Studies Conducted to See the Effects of Turmeric on Autoimmune Diseases


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2014 -- Autoimmune diseases are not as well-known as other medical conditions, such as heart disease or cancer. However, there are quite a large number of people who are suffering from certain types of autoimmune disorders.

“What makes these diseases even more alarming is that some of them are fatal and they usually require treatments that are dangerous, such as body irradiation and toxic chemo drugs. It will be great news for sufferers if a more natural treatment could be found that has positive effects on autoimmune diseases,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

More studies are being conducted to test the effects of turmeric on autoimmune diseases. According to experts, the therapeutic effects of turmeric have the potential to be extremely useful in managing autoimmune symptoms. Researchers believe the anti-inflammatory properties of the herb may have the ability to be responsible for the symptom management.

Autoimmune diseases are conditions that people get when their own bodies start attacking their healthy cells and organs. Although there is no specific cause of the condition, it is sometimes due to an infection.

Turmeric contains curcumin, which, according to studies, has high levels of anti-inflammatory properties that are almost similar to ibuprofen. Many now believe that autoimmune inflammation such as rheumatoid arthritis could be managed using turmeric. Turmeric is thought to reduce the swelling and the pain experienced by a sufferer of autoimmune disorders.

Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology published a study that found curcumin to have the capacity to inhibit some autoimmune disorders. It also found that curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric, can potentially slow down the progression of the diseases.

Turmeric is normally found as a spice in powder form, but there are also curcumin supplements available. Health experts suggest that curcumin supplements provide a more concentrated dose of the active ingredient, especially those that contain BioPerine, which enhances curcumin absorption in the body
