Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2015 -- Turmeric is a culinary herb native to southwest India, and for thousands of years it has been used for a range of medicinal purposes. Due to the myriad of health benefits the spice is believed to have the ability to offer, scientists has been taking a closer look at this miracle healing spice.
The U.S. News reveals the three most remarkable uses of turmeric. This spice contains a chemical compound called curcumin, which is a phytochemical. It is believed to offer a range of health benefits and is now widely available through supplementation.
A study in Advances in Experimental Medicines and Biology in 2007 reveals that curcumin has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anticancer, and antifungal activities. Thus, researchers suggest that it has the potential to fight various medical conditions such as allergies, diabetes, malignant diseases, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, and other chronic illnesses.
In 2008, the Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology investigated the potential effects of curcumin in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. It was found that it could eliminate the amyloid plaques, which are found in Alzheimer's disease.
In addition to providing defense against cognitive decline, turmeric is also thought to fight fatal conditions such as cancer. While it has not been validated yet whether the condition could truly fight cancer, the results of some studies reveal otherwise.
The American Cancer Society has shown laboratory tests that revealed curcumin has the potential ability to kill cancer cells as well as slow down the growth of the surviving cells. In lab animals, it has also been found to decrease the growth of various forms of cancer.
The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are also found to be helpful in fighting a range of inflammation-related conditions, including osteoarthritis. This condition causes pain and inflammation as well as make sufferers live a reduced quality of life.
In 2014, a journal called Clinical Interventions in Aging revealed that curcumin extracts were as effective as a certain medication used in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.
While curcumin is not a popular component in the American diets, it doesn't mean Americans cannot incorporate the therapeutic substance in their everyday life. There are curcumin supplements available that make intake of its therapeutic properties extremely easy and convenient.
Curcumin is thought to be highly therapeutic, but it doesn't efficiently get absorbed in the bloodstream. The good news is that there are curcumin supplements with BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract that helps increase curcumin absorption inside the body (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
