Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2015 -- Turmeric is popularized by the therapeutic ingredient it contains. This ingredient is called curcumin, and it is associated with a wide range of therapeutic benefits. The ancient spice is believed to help fight inflammation and other medical conditions. Due to the potential health benefits it can offer, more and more scientists are conducting studies to explore more of its medicinal properties.
New research reveals the potential benefits of turmeric against the CDC's 'nightmare bacteria'. It is believed that the increasing threat of antibiotic resistant infections may take around 23,000 lives each year in the United States. This alarming rate has led many researchers to investigate the therapeutic benefits of natural alternatives such as curcumin.
"Turmeric is an ancient spice that has long been used as a kitchen ingredient and a medicine. Today, it is widely available in a supplement form," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
The journal Molecule published a study that reveals turmeric may potentially help countermand the increasing threat of bacteria that have become absolutely resistant to conventional antibiotics. Organizations such as the CDC, or the Centers for Disease Control, have released a public alarm by calling the infection as the 'nightmare bacteria'.
There is also a new study with a title "Curcumin Reverse Methicillin Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus" that aimed at evaluating the role that curcumin plays in reversing the infectious bacteria's resistance to conventional antibiotics. It was found that curcumn possesses superior potency to re-sensitize MRSA to antibiotics.
According to the CDC, MRSA is a nightmare bacteria. Conventional antibiotics have become ineffective in fighting infectious diseases after decades of overuse. What makes this even worse is that these drugs feed the sub populations of the antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
The therapeutic properties of curcumin are believed to be very effective in fighting a variety of ailments, and improving one's protection against diseases. Since many people nowadays are using antibiotics, the prevalence of nightmare bacteria can potentially skyrocket. The good news is that natural alternatives such as curcumin have demonstrated some remarkable performances in reversing ailments including antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
"Curcumin supplements are widely available nowadays, and they can even be purchased in just a matter of clicks," added O'Sullivan.
Curcumin supplements are not created equally, and consumers should choose a product that is guaranteed safe and effective to use. Experts also recommend the use of curcumin supplements that contain BioPerine. This is a black pepper extract that is believed to be helpful in increasing the absorption of nutrients, such as curcumin, inside the body (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
