Turmeric May Potentially Help Reduce the Obesity Epidemic


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/22/2015 -- Obesity has become one of the deadliest and biggest problems faced by many countries nowadays. There are many factors that contribute to the increasing prevalence of obesity, and they include having unhealthy food preferences. The good news is that there seems to be a natural ingredient that can provide a potential solution to the weight management problem that has already gone global.

Turmeric may potentially help reduce the obesity epidemic. This ancient spice is commonly used as a kitchen ingredient that adds flavor to dishes. It is also used for various health purposes, especially among individuals who suffer from arthritis. Turmeric is used as a great pain management option for arthritis sufferers.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-third of adults and 16 percent of children suffer from obesity in the United States. This means that there are millions of individuals who are longing to lose or manage their weight. Turmeric may be a potential spice to aid in weight loss.

"Turmeric is a gold-colored spice that is widely used in India and for health care purposes. It is believed to have many therapeutic properties such as antiviral, antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anticancer and antifungal substances," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

A study called The Indian Solid Gold, which was published in the journal Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, has found a link between the substances in turmeric and weight loss. While scientific evidence has not validated that turmeric can aid in weight loss, it is believed that it can potentially aid in the prevention of fat re-growth after weight loss.

According to the study published by Tufts University in the Journal of Nutrition, the formation of new blood vessels often leads to tissue growth and expansion, which also results in weight gain. The study involved mice and turmeric. The therapeutic ingredient was injected into the fat cells and it inhibited the new growth of blood vessels inside the fat, which helped reduce weight gain. It has not been established yet whether it will work on humans, but so far the evidence in the clinical trial looks promising.

Researchers have not yet established the right dose that can provide weight management effects. However, in India, the average intake of turmeric from food on a daily basis is 2 to 2.5 grams, which equates to 60 to 200 mg of curcumin per day (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
