(Newswire.net — March 16, 2017) Orlando, FL — Turmeric is an ancient spice that has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. A number of the spice’s potentially therapeutic effects are thought to come from its phytochemical called curcumin.
Curcumin may be considered an all-natural miracle supplement in the coming years. Turmeric is a native spice of India, and has been used for a variety of medical, kitchen, and cosmetic purposes.
This spice has long been believed to help fight a range of medical conditions, such as liver disorders, dyspepsia, flatulence, eye and ear infections, common colds, chicken pox, small-pox, and a range of skin disorders and inflammatory conditions.
“Curcumin contains a variety of unique ingredients, which are thought to help fight various conditions,” Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Some of these ingredients may even contain antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-carcinogenic properties.
There have been quite a number of scientific studies and clinical trials conducted to determine the extent of curcumin’s possible effects. Animal and laboratory studies have provided overwhelming evidence in the potential benefits of this phytochemical.
There are over 100 clinical trials that focused on the use of curcumin alone or in combination with certain pharmaceutical drugs in fighting a variety of medical conditions. Some of these studies include fatal ailments such as cancer.
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has taken some steps to promote curcumin as a possible treatment of certain diseases. It appears that conducting clinical trials was the best option in validating whether curcumin could be a therapy with the existing drugs.
In addition to potentially fighting a range of medical conditions, curcumin has been found to reduce the toxicity as well as resistance to certain pharmaceutical drugs.
Many people are incorporating turmeric powder in their diet by simply adding it to their dishes and beverages. There are also those who simply take curcumin supplements on a daily basis.
One issue linked with the use of curcumin is that it has low bioavailability. This limits the absorption of its nutrients inside the body. The good news is that there are natural ingredients such as black pepper that may help to increase curcumin’s bioavailability.
Piperine, which is a black pepper extract, is a possible bioavailability-enhancing ingredient. It is believed to be effective in increasing the body’s ability to absorb curcumin’s potential benefits. Curcumin supplements that contain piperine are often recommended by experts. (www.amazon.com/tumeric-with-black-pepper/dp/B00VSVKJ8I)
