Quickly becoming known throughout the country as a pain reliever, today I hope to shed some light on the other advantages to one of nature’s “miracle” herbs.
Primarily native to India, the turmeric root has been a staple in many foods in that region of the world but today we’re going to talk about the benefits of using therapeutic amounts of this wonderful food, particularly the part that is so great at fighting inflammation, curcumin.
Usually when you hear the term inflammation you tend to think of an old injury or that achiness you feel when the weather turns cold again. However, inflammation has become widely known as the precursor to many major diseases.
In our bodies there are many processes happening all the time enabling us to live our lives. When there’s a malfunction, multiple mechanisms, which health care professionals call “pathways” are often involved. What does this have to do with turmeric you may ask? “The reason the curcumin is so effective is that they can act on over 100 different pathways in the body,” says Holly Lucille, ND. Curcumin influences many enzymes, substances and mechanisms in the body. And because it effects so many at the same time, the herbal extract doesn’t have the side effects of drugs.
Research is constantly being done and the results are fascinating. A study in Clinical Nutrition compared curcumin with a placebo in 117 people at high risk for diabetes and heart disease. The supplement reduced risk by lowering chronic inflammation and increasing production of internal antioxidants in a way that the researches described as “robust.”
Curcumin has also been known to enhance artery health, according to a study in The Gerontologist. 29 middle-aged and older people found that compared to a placebo, the supplement improved dilation of blood vessels by more than one-third.
