Research Suggests Turmeric Is a Powerful Immunity Booster


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2015 -- Nowadays, people are highly susceptible to infections and a wide variety of diseases. One of the things that makes humans vulnerable to diseases is having low immunity. The good news is that there are several methods and natural ingredients that are believed to help boost immunity.

Research suggests turmeric is a powerful immunity booster. The immune system is the body's natural defense against ailments, bacteria and viruses. It significantly reduces one's risk of getting ill. However, when the immune system is weak, the body easily catches ailments such as chest congestion, cough and cold. Having a strong immune system keeps the body from more severe illnesses.

"There are many things that people can do to improve their immunity such as having a healthy diet and lifestyle, as well as getting adequate, good quality sleep," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

The journal PLOS ONE (Public Library of Science) published a research that found curcumin has anti-inflammatory properties that can help boost immunity. Curcumin is an active ingredient of the spice called turmeric, and is believed to offer a variety of therapeutic benefits. According to researchers, turmeric can be consumed in raw form such as in the form of a powder. However, there is a chance that the body may not be able to properly absorb the therapeutic properties offered by the spice.

Nicholas Young, lead author of the study and a postdoctoral researcher in rheumatology and immunology at Ohio State, investigates whether making the biological effects of curcumin widely available to the entire body and using it as a daily supplement can help combat disease. He states that curcumin only needs to be delivered to the body with the use of other substances, such as castor oil and polyethylene glycol, that help nutrients be better absorbed by the body.

Researchers tried to test their theory by conducting an animal-based study. It was found that curcumin was able to inhibit the recruitment of certain immune cells that are associated with heart disease and obesity when overactive. The study was conducted by having mice as subjects. It was also found that curcumin has helped fight inflammation.

Today, curcumin supplements are widely available on the market. There are even many people who are not suffering from any medical condition, but are using the natural alternative to improve their immunity. A black pepper extract called BioPerine is believed to be very helpful for increasing the bioavailability of curcumin. Experts recommend that consumers choose curcumin supplements that contain BioPerine in them for better nutrient absorption (
