Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2015 -- The use of turmeric as a remedy for oral ailments dates back to the ancient times. Plants such as turmeric have long been consumed and have been a popular natural remedy for thousands of years. Today, the effects of turmeric in oral health are not just a part of the tradition of many cultures, but also a subject of many scientific studies.
Research finds turmeric to be superior to chemical mouthwash for oral health improvement. Turmeric powder is widely available in the market today, and there are even curcumin supplements that are also used by many people. Curcumin is a phytochemical of turmeric that is believed to be responsible for the spice's therapeutic effects.
"An increasing number of people nowadays are turning to natural alternatives from using medicines to kitchen ingredients. Instead of taking pain relief drugs, there are many who take advantage of the therapeutic effects of turmeric," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Recent research shows that turmeric oil and turmeric extract have the potential ability to reverse the precancerous changes in oral submucous fibrosis. It is also important to note that there are many studies that found turmeric extract has the potential ability to eliminate oral cancer cells.
In a study, it was found that turmeric extract-loaded nanoparticles have the potential to kill oral cancer cells that are chemotherapy-resistant. In addition to being helpful in fighting rare oral health issues, turmeric has long been used as a mouthwash that can help eliminate plaque.
According to researchers, there is 3 to 4 percent of curcumin in turmeric, and this is measured by dry weight. Experts believe that curcumin is an excellent alternative to chlorrhexidine, which is a common mouthwash ingredient. The ingredient is used for the treatment of gingivitis, which is an inflammation of the gum tissue.
Gingivitis is a non-destructive periodontal disease and is characterized by a bacterial plaque-induced inflammation. When it's left untreated, it can progress to a highly destructive form of periodontal disease. The most common symptoms of gingivitis are bleeding, bad breath, and swollen gums.
The UK's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) issued a patient safety alert on the use of Chlorexidine. It was found to have the potential ability to induce anaphylactic reactions. A safer ingredient, such as curcumin, can be an excellent alternative to the chemical.
Today, curcumin supplements are widely available in the market. They are even used by many people for fighting an extensive range of diseases, including the fatal ones (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
