Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/21/2015 -- Hemorrhagic stroke is one of the two types of stroke, and it takes place when the brain's weak blood vessel bursts. This often results in the blood leaking to the brain. Individuals who suffer from hemorrhagic stroke often experience headaches. The good news is that there is a natural alternative believed to be helpful for the condition.
Turmeric is believed to be an effective natural defense against hemorrhagic stroke. This condition is characterized by bleeding inside the brain called intra-axial hemorrhage, or outside the brain and within the skull called extra-axial hemorrhage. According to research, turmeric has the potential ability to treat hemorrhagic stroke through its bioactive properties.
"Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice that contains a phytochemical called curcumin, which is popularized by its therapeutic properties," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to statistics, 15 percent of all strokes are the intracerebral hemorrhage type, and they have higher rates of mortality than ischemic stroke. Experts suggest that curcumin has the potential ability to reduce the swelling in the brain tissue. It is also believed to help decrease the loss of brain tissue.
Curcumin contains therapeutic properties that are antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It is believed to reduce the neurological defects that result from hemorrhage within 3 days of recovery. Experts suggest that curcumin's anti-inflammatory properties are responsible for these benefits. When the blood accumulates outside the blood vessels, it develops into a type of blood clot called hematoma. This condition can result in the compression of the brain tissue, and speed up the bleeding in the brain.
In an animal-based study, the mice were exposed to ICH-like conditions. They were also treated with 75-300mg/kg of curcumin up to 6 hours after the ICH exposure. It was found that curcumin helped improve hematoma reabsorption and also reduce inflammation. The researchers also found that there was an improvement in neurological functioning after ICH.
Metalloproteinase (MMP) is a group of enzymes that reduces the extracellular matrix, which are molecules that offer structural support to cells. A study revealed that curcumin's anti-inflammatory properties have helped inhibit MMP enzyme activity.
According to the researchers, curcumin helped repair and prevent swelling and damage in the ICH-induced brain. Curcumin does this by inhibiting the activity of and decreasing the production of MMP. Curcumin supplements are available in the market for individuals who want to obtain its therapeutic benefits.
Curcumin supplements with a bioavailability enhancing ingredient such as BioPerine are extremely popular. BioPerine is a black pepper extract that helps increase curcumin absorption inside the body (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
