Research Shows Curcumin Combats Free Radicals


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2014 -- Curcumin, an active ingredient that can be found in the ancient spice turmeric, has been used by several herbal manufacturing companies in making natural supplements. The ingredient is widely known for the multiple health benefits it offers. However, there is one powerful healing property of curcumin that has become the subject of many studies.

The antioxidant properties of curcumin have become the focus of much scientific research around the globe. Several studies have shown that the antioxidant properties in curcumin can significantly help prevent free radicals from damaging cells. These antioxidants have been shown to be stronger than vitamin C and eight times more powerful than vitamin E. Researchers also found that it is three times more powerful than grape seeds or pine bark.

Clinical trials also found that the antioxidants in curcumin are so strong that they can fight the most reactive oxidant called hydroxyl radical. According to experts, diseases that are caused by oxidative stress such as atherosclerosis and neurological disorders should be treated with therapeutic substances such as antioxidants.

“Antioxidants can eliminate hydroxyl free radicals. Many people have already understood the powerful effects of antioxidants contained in curcumin. As more and more research supports the therapeutic effects of antioxidant properties, an increasing number of individuals are also using curcumin supplements to gain multiple health benefits,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

The results of different studies and research trials vary. However, most of them have found that the antioxidants in curcumin can increase a person’s protection against any type of degenerative disease such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and macular degeneration.

Each antioxidant has its own characteristics and benefits. However, it can also work together with other antioxidants to improve one’s overall health. There are antioxidants that can work in some places of the body that others can’t go. Similarly, there are also those that neutralize the free radicals that other antioxidants have missed.

Due to the results of the research conducted by scientists and health experts, many more consumers are turning to curcumin supplements. Experts recommend curcumin supplements that also contain BioPerine for enhanced absorption in the body
