Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2015 -- Diabetes is one of the most prevalent diseases nowadays. People resort to a variety of measures to reduce their risk of the condition and the complications it causes. In addition to healthy diet and exercise, there are other methods, such as the use of natural alternatives, that are becoming more and more popular.
A study reveals curcumin's potential to alleviate diabetic lung injury. Curcumin is a powerful phytochemical found in turmeric, which is an ancient, medicinal spice. This spice has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, in addition to being a favorite kitchen ingredient.
"Curcumin supplements are widely available nowadays for individuals who want to improve their overall health," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Curcumin is widely studied due to the therapeutic properties it contains. It contains high levels of anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant properties. This phytochemical is believed to offer hundreds of health benefits to humans.
In a study, it was found that curcumin was able to reduce inflammatory responses in the lungs of rats with diabetes, and thus, has the potential to alleviate diabetes-induced lung injury. The therapeutic benefits of curcumin were explored in the study with the use of quantitative real time CPR, immunohistochemistry, enzyme-linked immune sorbent assay, and electrophoretic mobility shift assay. It was further revealed that the natural ingredient has successfully reduced levels of oxidative stress and inhibited the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 and nitric oxide.
Further mechanism studies also found that curcumin has stopped the activation of NF-KB pathway, which plays a major role in inflammatory responses. The researchers believe that the study has demonstrated the efficacy of curcumin in inhibiting the NF-KB activation in the lungs of diabetic rats. This is believed to help reduce pulmonary inflammatory responses and provide relief from diabetes-induced lung injuries.
The findings of the study have led researchers to believe that curcumin may be a potentially promising agent in the alleviation of a diabetic lung injury. It is also believed to be an effective tool for developing diabetes therapy.
The use of curcumin is associated with a myriad of health benefits. The good news is that curcumin supplements are available in the market, and they can even be obtained in just a matter of clicks online. Curcumin supplements that contain black pepper extract are believed to be more therapeutic than others that do not contain this natural ingredient. Curcumin has low bioavailability, and since black pepper extracts, such as BioPerine, are bioavailability enhancing ingredients, curcumin's absorption inside the body increases when combined with black pepper (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
