Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/31/2016 -- Aluminum toxicity can result in oxidative stress, which is a state characterized by an imbalance between the body's antioxidant defenses and pro-oxidant agents. There are medications and natural remedies available for sufferers and one is turmeric.
Scientific evidences highlight the potential abilities of turmeric to fight aluminum toxicity. It is believed that turmeric's strong antioxidants could help alleviate oxidative stress. It does so by increasing the production of antioxidant enzymes, scavenging ROS, and inhibiting lipid peroxidation.
The body only absorbs 0.3 percent of the aluminum ingested or inhaled by the body. It is even believed that 95% of aluminum is eliminated by the kidneys.
Individuals who suffer from kidney dysfunction are often more likely to suffer from aluminum toxicity.
"This ancient, medicinal spice contains a phytochemical called curcumin," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Curcumin contains a variety of healing substances, which includes antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. This natural ingredient is thought to have renoprotective effects, which works by protecting the kidneys from harmful substances.
In one study, it was found that curcumin has the potential to offer protection against aluminum-induced cognitive dysfunction. This is believed to be helpful in developing a treatment for Alzheimer's disease.
In another study, it was found that curcumin has helped decrease aluminum-induced oxidative stress as well as mitochondrial dysfunction in the brains of the lab rats.
According to the third study, the levels of aluminum in the brain tissue often increases with age, and this could potentially lead to cognitive decline. Aluminum was also found to reduce the antioxidant enzyme levels.
It was found that curcumin regulated all the changes made by aluminum through its antioxidant properties. It has also helped counteract processes related to aging that are enhanced by aluminum.
Turmeric is widely used nowadays, especially among individuals who want to improve their overall health. There are also those who use it as a natural remedy in fighting a range of conditions.
Turmeric powder can be incorporated in one's diet. It is an excellent ingredient for food and beverages. Individuals who want to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of the spice may also use curcumin supplements.
Supplements are thought to contain high amounts of curcumin. There are also highly reputable curcumin supplements that contain BioPerine, which is a bioavailability enhancing ingredient.
While curcumin is popularized by its therapeutic benefits, it has low bioavailability. Curcumin supplements with bioavailability enhancing ingredient such as Bioperine are thought to offer more healing benefits.
BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract, increases the delivery of curcumin's healing properties inside the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
