Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/08/2015 -- Due to the increasing prevalence of a wide variety of ailments that are affecting millions nowadays, people are taking measures to improve their health and immunity. Turmeric is one of the natural alternatives that is continually gaining the attention and trust of scientists, herbalists and many other people.
Researchers finally reveal the reasons why turmeric is considered a superfood. This spice is probably as old as time, and it has been used for thousands of years as a medicine and a kitchen ingredient. It is commonly used as a main spice in curry dishes. Many renowned scientists have conducted studies to further investigate the healing properties of the spice.
"Turmeric is a healthy addition to one's diet. It can be purchased at grocery stores, or in the form of a supplement," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
The spice has been used as a medicine for at least 4,000 years in Asia, especially in India. Researchers from India even found some residues of turmeric on the cooking pots and in the teeth of the ancient Indus river remains. It suggested that the spice has been used in one of the first urban civilizations.
According to Chris Kilham, ethnobotonist, author, and "Medicine Hunter", turmeric is one of the most researched and beneficial medicinal plants in history. In the database of the National Institutes of Health PubMed, there are almost 5,000 studies and articles about turmeric or curcumin. There are some studies that have been unable to prove the health benefits of the spice. However, a majority of them offer some compelling evidence that turmeric has various health benefits.
Researchers have conducted studies to determine the effects of turmeric, from achy joints to blood sugar management, and the results were promising. The spice contains therapeutic substances, such as anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-malarial properties.
The journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy has published a study that linked the extract of turmeric with the stem cell growth in the brains of live rats. This is believed to be a remarkable indication that the spice can potentially be a remedy for degenerative brain diseases in humans, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Experts recommend that consumers add turmeric to their daily diet. They can purchase turmeric powder at grocery or health food stores, and use it when preparing dishes. Since curcumin, which is the key ingredient of turmeric, is not efficiently delivered inside the body, consumers can abundantly consume the spice. They can also use curcumin supplements that contain a bioavailability enhancer.
Curcumin has low bioavailability, and when it is combined with a black pepper extract called BioPerine, it can efficiently be absorbed inside the body. This black pepper extract can significantly help enhance absorption, and make it possible for the body to get the therapeutic benefits of the spice (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/?ie=UTF8&m=A8G127BZKAULA&keywords=curcumin).
