Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2015 -- Individuals who suffer from debilitating conditions such as arthritis do not just rely on NSAIDs or pain relief drugs, but also some natural alternatives. As a matter of fact, many of these patients are solely relying on natural medicines, including turmeric. Now, it seems that turmeric may not only be good for arthritis patients, but also for those who are suffering from skin conditions.
According to studies, turmeric may be a potential natural remedy for skin conditions such as eczema. The ancient spice has been widely used by eczema sufferers, and many of these patients have testified that their condition has improved after using turmeric.
The Journals of Drugs in Dermatology revealed a study that assessed the efficacy of turmeric in treating individuals with skin conditions. The study suggested that turmeric has antioxidant qualities that play a major role in the capacity of the spice to offer therapeutic effects. Other studies also suggested that turmeric has the potential to improve blood circulation, decrease inflammation and heal wounds.
"Turmeric is widely used by arthritis sufferers to manage inflammation. However, it is now also being used by many individuals suffering from a variety of skin conditions, and this includes eczema," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
A nutritionist and author of "Prescription for Nutritional Wellness", Phyllis Balch, believes that the powerful therapeutic properties of turmeric can significantly help individuals who suffer from eczema to manage their condition.
What makes turmeric even more popular is that it doesn't contain chemicals like skincare lotions and creams do. It is all-natural and does not have any known side effects. Turmeric contains an active ingredient known as curcumin, which is believed to be the major source of the spice's powerful therapeutic benefits. According to studies, the anti-inflammatory and bactericidal properties in turmeric have the ability to inhibit the production of enzymes that cause inflammation in the body. Skin inflammation is one of the most common causes of eczema.
Turmeric is available in different forms and many people take advantage of its therapeutic effects with the use of curcumin supplements. Curcumin supplements that contain BioPerine are believed to be more efficient, as the black pepper extract increases curcumin absorption in the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
