Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/03/2016 -- Skin disorders such as Vitiligo are typically treated with the use of commercially-produced skincare products. While these medications are widely popular, there are also natural alternatives that are thought to be potentially useful in helping sufferers.
Scientific research investigates the effects of turmeric in Vitiligo. This condition is characterized by the discoloration or loss of skin pigment in certain areas. It also leaves white patches on the skin. It is believed to take place when the skin cells perish or are unable to properly function.
"Turmeric is widely believed to offer a myriad of health benefits and fight a range of conditions, including those that affect the skin," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
This ancient, medicinal spice contains a highly therapeutic polyphenol called curcumin. This healing ingredient contains antibacterial-antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been a popular natural remedy in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.
Vitiligo generally affects the skin in the feet, wrists, knees, elbows, and genitals. While skin lesions initially start small, they can become noticeable in shape and size. There are lesions that cause increase in skin pigment around edges.
There are factors believed to contribute to the development of vitiligo such as autoimmunity, oxidative stress, genetic alterations, and inflammatory disorders. Popular treatments include phototherapy, depigmentation, steroids, and pharmaceutical drugs formulated to regulate immune response.
In a study conducted in Thailand, it was found that turmeric promote repigmentation. In another research conducted in the University of Florence, Italy, turmeric has been able to control oxidative stress, which is the primary cause of vitiligo.
There was a belief in the Ayurvedic medicine that when turmeric is used correctly, it can significantly help cure vitiligo. Turmeric is thought to have the ability to regain the color of depigmented spots.
The Faculty of Ayurveda, Institutes of Medical Sciences carried out a study to determine the effects of turmeric in the skin disorder. It was found that the Ayurvedic formulations used, which include turmeric, were as effective as the Western treatment for vitiligo.
What makes the natural alternative even more beneficial is that it doesn't cause side effects. Turmeric can be topically applied to skin areas affected with vitiligo. Sufferers may create a paste by mixing turmeric powder and mustard oil.
Turmeric powder is widely available in the market today. Many people believe in the therapeutic benefits the spice has to offer due to the positive effects associated with its use. There are quite a number of people who claim that turmeric has not only improved their health condition, but also their overall quality of life (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
