Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2015 -- Turmeric has been a popular natural remedy for a wide variety of conditions, including life-threatening diseases. Its therapeutic benefits also extend to individuals whose eyes do not produce enough tears.
Turmeric is believed to be an effective natural solution for dry eye problems. Dry eye is a condition that tales place when the surface of the eyes are not lubricated. There are people who do not produce sufficient amounts of tears, while others just lack the right consistency to nourish the eye.
"Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice that is popular all over the world. Its use is widely associated with a range of benefits," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Even with the use of artificial tears, there are still people who experience dry eye problems. The good news is that there are supplements such as turmeric that are believed to help fight the condition.
The symptoms of dry eye may include excessive tearing, redness, surface irritation, eye fatigue, pain and periods of blurry vision. When the surface of the eye is inflamed, it can result in dry eye. It can also lead to damage to the cornea and scarring. Unfortunately, scarring could result in significant vision changes.
Turmeric is believed to have very powerful therapeutic properties. It has an active ingredient called curcumin that is known for its antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties it contains. Experts believe that the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin can help reduce inflammation associated with the eye condition. Individuals who suffer from inflammation may speak with their doctor about the use of turmeric for reducing the severity of their symptoms.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, the recommended average dose of curcumin powder may range from 400 to 600mgs thrice in a day. However, sufferers may seek the permission and guidance of their doctor to determine the amount of curcumin ideal for them. Turmeric may be taken in a powder form, but there are also curcumin supplements available.
Nowadays, curcumin supplements are widely used as a natural alternative for a wide range of conditions. Arthritis sufferers even use it to achieve pain relief and improve their mobility, instead of using pain relief drugs.
While curcumin has powerful therapeutic effects, it has low bio-availability, and this means its absorption inside the body is limited. The good news is that there are bio-availability enhancing ingredients such as BioPerine that are believed to make an ideal combination with curcumin. Experts recommend the use of curcumin supplements with BioPerine (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
