Preclinical Study Reveals Turmeric Extract Could Potentially Kill Highly Fatal Pancreatic Tumors


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2016 -- Turmeric is widely believed to be therapeutic. As a matter of fact, both turmeric powder and supplements have been widely used over the years by many people for medicinal purposes. This ancient, medicinal spice is thought to improve the health of various bodily organs, including the pancreas.

Preclinical study reveals turmeric extract could potentially kill highly fatal pancreatic tumors. Turmeric contains polyphenol called curcumin, which has been a subject of many research studies due to its potential ability to kill cancer cells.

According to Greenmedinfo, there are more than 1,500 studies about turmeric and 24 of which focus on its anti-pancreatic cancer properties. The healing effects of turmeric are believed to come from its phytochemical, curcumin.

In new preclinical research, it was revealed that liposomal turmeric extract could potentially inhibit the growth of pancreatic tumor by 42 percent. This can be quite amusing considering that the conventional treatment of advanced stage pancreatic cancer is only 1 percent 5-year survival rate.

The Anticancer Research also featured a study that reveals liposomal curcumin, which is a unique turmeric extract, has the potential to become an ideal chemotherapy alternative in fighting fatal pancreatic cancers. The Anticancer Research is a medical journal published by the International Institute of Anticancer Research.

According to the American Cancer Society, there is also 14 percent 5-year survival rate in Stage IA cancers and 1 percent for stage IV types.

A new study from the Department of Molecular Biology and Immunology, and Institute for Cancer Research, University of North Texas Health Science Center, Fort Worth, Texas reveals that liposomal curcumin formulation has the ability to inhibit the proliferation of pancreatic cancer cell in vitro.

Curcumin has also been found to have an antiangiogenic effect. This means it has the potential to reduce pro-angiogenic factors linked with the growth of the blood supply of the tumor.

"Curcumin has long been believed to be a safe, affordable, and effective remedy for a wide range of diseases," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

Today, there are many curcumin supplements available in the market. Individuals who want to take advantage of its health benefits may incorporate turmeric powder in their diet by adding it in their food and beverages. They can also directly consume turmeric through supplementation.

Most of the best curcumin supplements contain a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient such as BioPerine. This is a black pepper extract that is thought to be effective in increasing the delivery of curcumin nutrients inside the human body (
