Turmeric Believed to Be Beneficial for Thyroid Health


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/23/2015 -- While many are continually using pharmaceutical drugs as a treatment, there is an increasing number of people who are turning to natural alternatives such as turmeric. This ancient medicinal spice has long been a subject of many studies due to its powerful therapeutic benefits. New research has discovered another benefit potentially offered by the spice.

Turmeric is believed to be beneficial for thyroid health. Consumption of this potent spice is associated with a variety of health benefits, especially for conditions related to inflammation. It is believed to be a very powerful free radical scavenger. It is also believed to protect cell integrity, support brain health, and encourage a balanced mood.

"Turmeric contains curcumin, which is believed to have powerful antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

A recent study reveals that turmeric may be one of the most efficient defenses people can use against thyroid problems. The spice is believed to maintain hormonal health and regulate metabolism. The delicate balance of the thyroid is often disturbed by the chemicals or substances in pesticides, plastics, and other materials. This imbalance often results in thyroid disorders.

In the study, it was shown that people who used turmeric regularly were less likely to suffer from a common symptom of iodine deficiency called goiter. Both iodine deficiency and goiter are symptoms of hyperthyroidism, which takes place when the thyroid produces inadequate amounts of thyroid hormone.

Hyperthyroidism often leads to lethargy, weight gain, and depression. Taking care of thyroid health is essential, and it can be done naturally and safely through the use of turmeric. The therapeutic benefits of turmeric are believed to be due to its capacity to sooth irritation in the skin, brain, and blood vessels.

With the presence of its antioxidant properties, it is able to support thyroid health. Experts believe that when endocrine disruptors irritate the thyroid, it needs to be soothed before the repair. Turmeric is believed to be an ideal ingredient for this, since it is both safe and effective to use as a natural remedy.

Turmeric powder can be purchased at grocery stores, and can be used in dishes such as soups and curries. Consumers can also take advantage of curcumin supplements, which are also widely available in the market. Curcumin that comes in a combination of a black pepper extract called BioPerine is highly recommended by experts. Many users of curcumin have reported some significant improvements in their condition through using the alternative (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
