Studies Investigate the Effects of Turmeric on Urinary Disorders


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2015 -- Turmeric is believed by many to be an effective natural management option for a variety of diseases, especially joint conditions. Some studies now indicate that the natural alternative may also have positive applications in the management of urinary conditions.

Studies are investigating the effects of turmeric in urinary disorders. Researchers believe that the active ingredient in turmeric known as curcumin, plays a major role in the spice's powerful therapeutic benefits. The spice contains substances that potentially have anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.

One study performed at the University of Karachi demonstrated that turmeric was more effective in treating urinary tract infections (UTIs) than several antibiotics used. The study showed that turmeric was able to eliminate bacterial strains that were otherwise resistant to most of the broad-spectrum antibiotics that are commonly used for UTIs.

It is believed that the spice has a strong antibacterial action that can help eliminate the bacteria-causing disease, and can significantly help to fight urinary tract infections. The antioxidant properties of the ingredient are also believed to be effective in boosting immune system activity, thus speeding up the urinary tract's healing process.

Health professionals often prescribe pharmaceutical drugs to help individuals achieve relief from the symptoms caused by urinary infections. However, there are also those that recommend the use of turmeric in addition to drugs. Many consumers are choosing to rely on turmeric not only because of its therapeutic benefits, but also because it does not cause the same dangerous side effects common to prescription medications. It is all-natural and has been generally recognized as safe by the FDA.

Many experts recommend supplements containing curcumin for optimum consumption of the therapeutic nutrients. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric that is believed to be responsible for its powerful benefits. Most of the best curcumin herbal supplements also include BioPerine, a black pepper extract that can dramatically increase curcumin absorption in the body
