Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2015 -- Gastroenteritis stomach flu is characterized by symptoms such as vomiting, chills, fevers, abdominal pain and watery diarrhea. Patients with this condition normally suffer from these symptoms for a up to 10 days. While the condition can be extremely uncomfortable to deal with, it seems that sufferers are finding natural remedies such as turmeric effective for relief of the condition.
According to research, many sufferers of gastroenteritis stomach flu are finding relief using turmeric. The spice has long been used as an ancient East Indian medicine and has been known to have a wide variety of therapeutic benefits. Studies continue to find further potential healing properties of the spice for a wide variety of diseases and conditions.
Stomach flu is caused by viruses that damage the cells located within the lining of the small intestine. This damage results in the leaking of fluids from the cells to the intestine, which also cause watery diarrhea.
There are several natural remedies recommended for stomach flu, and the most effective among them is thought to be turmeric. Even today, the ancient spice is used by many consumers who believe it provides relief from nausea and stomach pain.
Studies have shown that turmeric may have antiviral and antibacterial properties are likely responsible for its positive effects on individuals suffering from stomach flu. In addition to its antibacterial and antiviral effects, it has also been demonstrated to have antioxidant properties.
"Turmeric powder is used by many people to fight stomach flu symptoms. Sufferers can place a small amount of turmeric powder into their food to get a small antibacterial boost, which may help them fight against the condition and its symptoms," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan
Turmeric contains curcumin, which is the active ingredient that is believed to provide a majority of the spice's therapeutic properties. Curcumin supplements are widely used by many individuals as a convenient way to obtain concentrated doses of the ingredient. Health professionals suggest that those who want to use curcumin supplements need to select a product that contains a black pepper extract, which increases the absorption of curcumin (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
