Studies Suggest Curcumin May Have Positive Effects on Crohn's Disease


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/18/2014 -- The prevalence of Crohn’s Disease has continually been increasing, and statistics show that 200 out of 100,000 people are suffering from the condition. Several management options have been very useful to sufferers, including curcumin supplements.

Studies suggest that curcumin can have positive effects on Crohn’s disease. It is a widely popular option for those who want to manage the condition. These studies found that the natural alternative has the potential to alleviate pain and relieve symptoms.

“Crohn’s Disease causes digestive system inflammation and is considered a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Its symptoms include weight loss, pain, diarrhea, joint pain, rectal bleeding and fever,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Albeit the condition is incurable, it can be managed and curcumin supplements are a popular choice for those looking for a safe and natural alternative to pharmaceuticals. Studies indicate that curcumin contains anti-inflammatory properties, which takes care of reducing inflammation and congestion in the mucus membranes.

Diseases such as Crohn’s make mucus membranes highly vulnerable to irritation and swelling. It is believed that curcumin does not only contain anti-inflammatory properties that reduce irritation, but can also act as an antibacterial that could prevent infection.

Studies have been conducted to see the effects of the anti-inflammatory properties in curcumin in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It was found that the subjects who took curcumin experienced significant improvements in their IBD symptoms.

Many people consider curcumin a safe alternative to drugs in managing symptoms of Crohn’s disease, as it does not produce side effects. Consumers report experiencing improvements in their symptoms and say the positive effect of curcumin has helped them improve the quality of their life.

Crohn’s Disease is more prevalent in higher altitude areas such as Australia, Canada and Scandinavia. However, in the United States, both men and women are equally affected.
Curcumin supplements are already popular in many areas around the globe especially those suffering from arthritis.

It is imperative for consumers to make a wise and informed decision in purchasing curcumin supplements. There are quite a number of products available in the market and choosing the right one is essential in obtaining the therapeutic benefits of the natural alternative. Experts suggest that consumers choose curcumin supplements that contain BioPerine, a black pepper extract that enhances nutrient absorption in the body (
