Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2014 -- A variety of conditions can affect liver health and cause permanent damage, from obesity and viruses, to alcohol consumption. If the organ sustains enough harm, it can lead to life threatening liver failure. Scientific studies on the many benefits of turmeric have determined that a turmeric supplement may be able to assist in maintaining liver health.
“Turmeric is a culinary spice that has a variety of properties,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan. “Numerous studies have been conducted on its ability to protect the liver against damage and the results have been positive.”
The liver is responsible for an array of functions. It rids the body of toxins and secretes enzymes that help digest food. The liver regulates glucose, fats and proteins in the blood, converts nutrients from food into materials the body can use, and produces substances that allows blood to clot.
Turmeric is a culinary spice that Asian and East Indian medical practitioners have credited with a vast number of pharmacological properties. It’s a proven anti-inflammatory that relieves pain and swelling. It’s also believed to be a potent antioxidant, able to neutralize free radicals that damage cells.
Results of tests conducted by the Clinical Trial Center for Functional Foods at Chonbuk National University Hospital in South Korea detailed the benefits of turmeric in subjects with specific enzymes known to be markers for mild to moderate liver damage and dysfunction. At the end of three months, subjects who received turmeric demonstrated a significant reduction in those enzymes. Reduced levels were maintained as long as subjects received turmeric treatment.
A study published in the journal of the Medical Association of Thailand claims that turmeric has the ability to repair the liver and may even be helpful in regeneration of the organ. Turmeric is well tolerated and can be taken for prolonged periods without ill effects. The recommended turmeric dosage for optimal effect is 750mg.
Curcumin is the active ingredients in turmeric that gives the botanical its beneficial properties. Its therapeutic abilities have been known for centuries, but it’s only been in the last half century that the scientific and medical communities have engaged in serious exploration of the spice. The results have been encouraging, with the potential to address a variety of ailments and diseases in a natural way without pharmaceuticals www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/
