Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/02/2015 -- Bacterial infection, asthma and sinusitis are among the common causes of cough. This condition can exhibit a variety of symptoms and this is why immediate treatment is necessary. Drugs are a widely known treatment for cough, but natural alternatives such as turmeric are gaining popularity from many sufferers.
Studies showed that an increasing number of people who are suffering from cough are relying on turmeric as a remedy. Curcumin, an active ingredient of turmeric, is believed to be the source of the spice's medicinal value. The ingredient contains therapeutic substances such as anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties that are known to be very efficient in combating bacterial and viral infections such as cough.
"Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties are believed to be a great remedy in individuals who are suffering from chest congestion due to chronic cough. The volatile oil from turmeric is usually extracted and used as a method to get rid of phlegm," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine, or USNLM, stated on its website that turmeric has a wide variety of medicinal uses and they include use for arthritis, heartburn and inflammation. It can also help avoid the development of gallstones and ease a cough that is caused by a viral infection or general lung inflammation.
People have different methods of using turmeric as a cough remedy. Turmeric powder, for instance, is used in soups or teas. There are also those that roast and grind turmeric roots to make a smooth powder. Individuals who suffer from runny noses combine turmeric with hot water and use its steam as an expectorant.
More studies are still being conducted to validate the efficacy of turmeric in providing therapeutic benefits to cough patients. However, the spice has long been used by many people for a wide variety of medicinal purposes, such as a remedy for cough. There were even sufferers of severe cough that testified how efficient the spice is in providing them the relief they were looking for.
Turmeric is made available nowadays in the form of curcumin supplements. These supplements are widely used by thousands of people who are trying to find natural remedies for the condition they are suffering from, such as arthritis.
