Research Shows Potential for Turmeric in Reducing the Risk for ADHD in Children


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2014 -- Curcumin, an active ingredient in turmeric, is widely researched for its numerous therapeutic effects. Many studies have been conducted to explore more of the natural ingredient’s healing properties. Some of these studies recently discovered a potential application for curcumin in child health.

Statistics show that 9.5% of school-age children in the United States have ADHD. This condition is characterized by distractibility, restlessness, poor impulse control, overactivity, and difficulty focusing. These symptoms often affect a child’s social skill, academic performance, and relationship with others.

Parents with children suffering from ADHD are continually looking for natural remedies to relieve the symptoms of the condition. These natural treatment options include vitamins, minerals, and herbs. Health experts also recommend the use of natural supplements, as well as an increased intake of high protein food such as nuts, meat, cheese, and egg beans.

“Experts recommended that parents feed their children with food and beverages that have the highest nutritional values. Children should also avoid consumption of processed foods and those that contain artificial flavorings. More importantly, children should also take food and supplements that are helpful for brain development,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Research has now shown that turmeric supplements may be helpful in reducing the risk for ADHD in children. Children who are suffering from ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder usually have low glutathione reserves.

Low glutathione levels normally inhibit the detoxification of toxins such as lead and mercury. These toxins can affect the brain chemicals that are essential in general awareness, attention and concentration. Researchers believe that curcumin could help by increasing the glutathione levels in the body.

Curcumin supplements have become popular as a natural health alternative for various conditions and are widely available in the market. Experts also recommend consumers look for curcumin supplements that contain a black pepper extract, which increases nutrient absorption in the body
