ANTIOXIDANT & ANTI-CANCER
Numerous studies have also shown the cancer preventing action of curcumin in multiple cancers with an additional increase in the complementary cancer-killing effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Every month more than a dozen new studies are published in scientific journals making this one of the most well-researched antioxidant and anti-cancer herbs in the world.
OXIDATIVE STRESS AND INFLAMMATORY CONDITIONS:
Research has found that Curcumin reduces inflammation and assists healing in the following conditions: Diabetes Mellitus Type 2, Radiation, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Cholestasis, Aflatoxicosus, Osteoarthritis, High Cholesterol, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Colon Polyps, Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Myocardial Ischemia, Ulcerative Colitis, Arthritis, Allergies, Allergies, Cystic Fibrosis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Crohns Disease, Post Surgical Inflammation and conditions that are normally prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids and antihistamines.
Traditionally in Asia, Turmeric is used for indigestion, jaundice, liver and gallbladder disorders. Studies have shown that curcumin possesses properties that protect the liver from a number of toxic compounds. Turmeric is helpful to prevent gallbladder disease, however it should be used with caution in gallstones because of its positive effects on increasing bile flow. Liver damage due to alcohol and food poisoning was also reversed. In a double blind study in Thailand, Turmeric was studies for its effects on relieving indigestion and gas. An impressive 87 percent of patients receiving Curcuma responded positively to the treatment, which resulted in several patent medicines for indigestion containing standardized curcumin being developed. Turmeric also contains natural compounds that act as a natural antacid, protecting the stomach lining from excess acidity and ulcer formation.
Turmeric has also been shown to reduce platelets (a constituent of the blood involved in blood clotting) from clumping together, which in turn improves circulation and helps protect against atherosclerosis. Several studies have shown that a daily oral administration of Turmeric extract decreases significantly the LDL (bad cholesterol) and increases the HDL (good cholesterol) of healthy subjects. All the researchers concluded that Turmeric is useful in the management of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
IMMUNITY AND INFECTIOUS CONDITIONS
Numerous cancer research institutes, including the Amala Cancer Research Centre in India have confirmed that curcumin significantly increased several parameters of immune activity in improving infection fighting and anti-tumor activity. Researchers have also initiated some studies on curcumin use for HIV infection, where it is found to have marked anti-HIV properties in the test tube. It was also found to protect from the subsequent infections from weakened immunity, such as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Other immune related and anti-infective conditions benefited by Curcumin include: Low Immunity, Malaria, Helicobacter Pylori Infection, Fungal Infection, Parasitic Diseases, Liver Flukes, Automimmune Diseases, Bacterial Infections, Candida, Respiratory Tract Infections, Tuberculosis, Vitiligo.
A large body of evidence is showing that Curcumin can cross the blood brain barrier and protect from a range of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimers Disease. Additional nervous system conditions benefited by Curcumin include: Memory Disorders, Brain Ischemia, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, Brain Damage, Epilepsy, Depression, Cognitive Decline, Aging Brain, Stress, Spinal Cord Injuries & Anxiety Disorders.
