Numerous Studies Investigate the Effects of Turmeric in Pancreatitis


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/12/2015 -- Turmeric is a widely studied medicinal spice, and this is due to the number of powerful therapeutic substances it contains. There are many health benefits associated with the use of turmeric, and an increasing number of people are reaping the benefits of using it. It is believed to be beneficial to a number of bodily organs such as the pancreas.

Numerous studies investigate the effects of turmeric in pancreatitis. The therapeutic effects of turmeric are believed to come from its phytochemical called curcumin. Curcumin is widely popularized by the healing substances it contains namely due to its antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-oxidant properties.

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine considers herbs such as turmeric to be an alternative medicinal treatment. In Ayurveda medicine, it is widely researched by conventional healthcare professions for the role it plays in the prevention and treatment of a variety of conditions including pancreatitis.

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in many kitchens from around the world. It doesn't just add flavor but also color to dishes and beverages. It has been used for conditions such as bloating, diarrhea, heartburn, jaundice, headaches, menstrual problems, and gallbladder disorders. The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are believed to contribute to many of its medicinal benefits.

Pancreatitis is characterized by the inflammation of the pancreas. There are four types of pancreatitis, namely chronic pancreatitis, acute pancreatitis, pancreatic abscess, and pancreatic pseudocyst. The common symptoms may include fever, abdominal pain, nausea, jaundice, weakness, and weight loss.

The International Journal of Molecular Medicine published a study that investigated the potential protective effects of turmeric. It was found that turmeric could potentially play a protective role in the development of acute pancreatitis and other pancreatitis-associated lung injuries.

In 2009, a study published in the Alternative Medicine Review revealed that turmeric may have the potential to provide therapeutic qualities for treating diseases such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and pancreatitis.

Turmeric has become a very popular natural remedy for fighting a range of ailments. It is even believed to be one of the most therapeutic spices available today. The good news is that it can easily be consumed through the use of curcumin supplements.

Curcumin is believed to be a very powerful healing ingredient but it has low bioavailability. This means that it doesn't efficiently absorb inside the body. The good news is that natural ingredients, such as a black pepper extract called BioPerine, are believed to have the ability to increase bioavailability.
