Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2014 -- Plants have been used for centuries for their medicinal properties. Turmeric is one of a number of botanicals that have undergone extensive testing utilizing the most stringent scientific methods and come through with flying colors. It’s been proven to be as effective as many commonly prescribed medications for conditions ranging from chronic pain to depression.
“Turmeric is one of the most highly researched plants on the planet,” said Michelle O’Sullivan, spokesperson for VitaBreeze. “It’s undergone extensive testing and data has yielded some surprising results. Turmeric has a variety of properties with the potential to address multiple ailments.”
Medicinal herbs are receiving more than a passing glance from medical professionals. Science has given the world chemical compounds to address ailments, but before their discovery, medical practitioners relied on botanicals that included turmeric. Scientific evidence is now available that supports turmeric’s many benefits.
Intensive modern research into turmeric’s potential has been conducted for more than 50 years, but it was only recently that certain formulas earned the Food and Drug Administration’s generally regarded as safe (GRAS) designation. The majority of research into turmeric’s properties has been focused on its anti-inflammatory abilities, an area in which it excels.
Results of turmeric tests have led researchers to broaden the scope of their trials. In traditional Asian and East Indian medicine, the herb is used to treat conditions ranging from cancer and intestinal disorders to angina. Western research has clearly demonstrated that turmeric has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, along with the ability to interfere with some viruses.
Degenerative brain disease, memory loss, reduced cognitive function and mood disorders have all been linked to decreased levels of a naturally occurring growth hormone within the body. Clinical trials suggest that turmeric may be effective in addressing age-related decreases in brain function by augmenting specific hormone levels and clearing protein tangles that cause a type of plaque build-up in the brain.
A daily dosage of 750mg of turmeric extract can provide tremendous benefit to the body. A dietary supplement should include black pepper extract, an ingredient that facilitates the body’s absorption of turmeric. Even though turmeric is one of the most widely researched plants in the world, it’s still surprising the scientific and medical community with new potential.
