Researchers Believe Turmeric Is an Excellent Addition to a Heart-Healthy Diet Plan


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2015 -- Turmeric is one of the most popular and oldest spices today. It is also considered by many people and scientific researchers to be an extremely healthy spice. Its use is associated with a range of health benefits. Individuals who want to protect their heart may consider using the spice.

Researchers believe that turmeric is an excellent addition to a heart-healthy diet plan. Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice that has long been used as a kitchen ingredient. However, it is not just useful for adding color and taste to food and beverages, but also for fighting a range of medical conditions.

"Turmeric contains a phytochemical called curcumin, which contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

Researchers from the University of Toronto reveal that curcumin has the potential ability to block a wide range of biochemical reactions. These reactions are involved in inflammation and fibrosis as well as cardiac hypertrophy or enlargement of the heart chambers.

In another study conducted by the researchers from Japan's Kyoto Medical Center, it was found that curcumin could help provide support for blood pressure as well as avoid cardiac hypertrophy. It has also been found to decrease excess platelet aggregation, which typically occurs in clot-forming, sticky blood.

The researchers believe that curcumin could help regulate the NF-kappa B production, which is a protein complex linked with the inflammatory reactions in the body. The rise of NF-kappa B production has been associated with the development of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases as well as cancer.

Inflammation is believed to play a major role in the development of many conditions, including heart disease. Curcumin has long been believed to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, and thus it can be a great addition to a heart-healthy diet plan.

People who have heart problems or are prone to having them are using natural alternatives such as curcumin. While there are medications available for these conditions, their use is associated with certain side effects. The use of curcumin is not just popular because it is safe to use, but also because it has been linked with a myriad of health benefits.

Turmeric powder is often used when preparing food or beverages. Many people are incorporating it in their diet just to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of curcumin. There are also supplements available for individuals who want to obtain the highest concentration of curcumin. The most recommended curcumin supplements are those that contain a black pepper extract called BioPerine, which is a bioavailability enhancing ingredient (
