Turmeric Believed to Be a Potential Natural Remedy for Diarrhea


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2015 -- The use of turmeric has long been associated with a myriad of health benefits. It has become so popular that there are already turmeric supplements available today. The spice is a widely used natural alternative not just for arthritis sufferers, but also for individuals who suffer from digestive problems.

Turmeric is believed to be a potential natural remedy for diarrhea. This ancient spice is a common kitchen ingredient, but is also used for medicinal purposes. It can be used as a topical treatment for various skin conditions and a pain relief management option for arthritis. It is also believed to improve digestive health.

"Today, it is easy to take advantage of the therapeutic effects of turmeric because of the wide availability of curcumin supplements in the market," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

Curcumin is a polyphenol, and is considered to be an active ingredient of turmeric. It is believed to be responsible for the spice's therapeutic effects due to the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties it contain.

Individuals who are suffering from diarrhea are those that have three or more watery, loose stools in a day. Diarrhea may take place without any identifiable cause, but it can also be caused by bacteria, some medications, or one's intolerance for particular food items. There are also diseases that take place in the gastrointestinal tract, which are believed to cause diarrhea. Individuals who suffer from diarrhea for more than three days should consult their healthcare provider.

According to memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, turmeric can potentially help reduce the likelihood of the symptoms of the disorders related to diarrhea such as ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome. However, according to the National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine, turmeric should be taken in the right dose to gain some therapeutic benefits.

In addition to its benefits for diarrhea, it is also believed to be helpful in fighting infections, kidney stones, and inflammation. Turmeric is a popular natural alternative for individuals who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, jaundice, hepatitis, headache, and a variety of skin problems. The National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine even suggests that it can be potentially helpful for wound healing and eczema.

Curcumin supplements are widely popular nowadays, especially among individuals who suffer from pain. There are also people who use turmeric powder in preparing beverages such as a tea. They reported experiencing some significant improvements in their bowel movements. Today, the most popular curcumin supplements are those that contain a black pepper extract called BioPerine, which is a bioavailability enhancer (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
