Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2015 -- There are many preventable diseases that are affecting millions of people around the world. An ever-increasing number of people are now suffering with chronic ailments and are forced to spend the rest of their lives taking medications to manage their conditions. With long-term use of pain management drugs linked to serious side effects, researchers are investigating more natural alternatives.
Turmeric is an ancient spice that has been used for thousands of years as a cooking ingredient and an old remedy for a wide variety of conditions. According to health experts, this spice may hold a myriad of therapeutic benefits. Recent studies have shown that curcumin contains substances that could be beneficial to lung health. Curcumin is an active ingredient of turmeric that is believed to be the major source of the spice's therapeutic effects.
The Journal of Experimental Medicine and Biology released a report that revealed curcumin demonstrated powerful protective effects on acute lung injury, obstructive pulmonary disease, allergic asthma and acute respiratory distress syndrome. It was also found that the therapeutic agents of curcumin can be potentially helpful in chronic lung disease.
"Previous studies have shown that turmeric has abundant levels of antioxidants, which are believed to have the ability to protect cells from damage. The strength of this protection is almost similar to vitamin C," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Additional studies are still being conducted to validate the effects of turmeric in lung health. However, many individuals are already beginning to rely on the spice due to the strong antioxidant properties it possesses, and the potential health benefits they may bring.
Curcumin supplements are widely available nowadays and are very popular among natural health enthusiasts. The most popular type of curcumin supplements are those that contain BioPerine. This black pepper extract is believed to be effective in increasing the bioavailability of curcumin and other nutrients, allowing consumers to take better advantage of what curcumin has to offer (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
