Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2015 -- People primarily think of a curcumin supplement in regard to relieving the inflammation and pain of arthritis. Research has demonstrated that the botanical has an extensive variety of benefits and the humble plant's powers aren't just for arthritis anymore.
"Scientific studies tell us that turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant," said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "What many people may not know is that clinical research has shown that it's beneficial for a multitude of problems and has potential for a myriad of other conditions."
Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance that has shown promise in a wide variety of research studies. It's been proven to be as effective as a variety of commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals, with none of the deadly side effects that have been observed with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
People with degenerative conditions and brain disorders that include Alzheimer's and depression have shown decreased levels of a growth hormone in the brain. In clinical trials, the spice increased the levels of the hormone and boosted overall brain function.
Heart disease is one of the fastest growing health conditions in technologically advanced countries. Clinical trials have amply demonstrated that curcumin has the ability to reduce plaque build-up in arteries, aid in regulating blood pressure, and enhance clotting ability.
The word cancer strikes fear into the heart of everyone. Cancer research has been examining the potential of curcumin and results have been promising. Researchers agree that it can affect the growth of the disease and its spread at the molecular level and has the potential to support traditional treatments.
While research is discovering new possibilities for curcumin, the spice has been a staple for more mundane uses in cultures for thousands of years. It's been incorporated into toothpaste as a whitening agent, in topical cosmetics for luminous skin and used to soothe an upset stomach. Curcumin is used in some countries as an anti-bacterial, to treat acne, and it's one of the earliest botanicals used to dye cloth yellow.
To obtain the maximum benefit of curcumin, clinicians and rheumatologists recommend a daily dosage of 750mg per day. Curcumin isn't absorbed well by the body making it essential that the a turmeric supplement includes a black pepper extract such as BioPerine® http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/?ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=turmeric
