Curcumin’s Hidden Benefits

posted by on February 10th, 2014

Curcumin tested in human clinical trials have shown anti-cancer activity promise.  In contrast to using chemotherapy drugs, Curcumin is tolerated and considered safe.

Complaints of the gastrointestinal tract, simple digestive concerns, or those of cancer, show great promise with the use of Curcumin.

Curcumin and turmeric were found in numerous clinical studies to decrease inflammatory responses in the body, like TNF-a and inhibit the growth of cancer-causing proteins.  By modulating NFK-b, Curcumin kills cancer cells while preserving non-cancerous cells.  One mechanism reported to support such remarkable claims is curcumins’ ability to assist in the production of glutathione, an antioxidant, slowing the progression of cancer.  This finding was of most remark in colon and pancreatic cancer.

Further research is underway to investigate the possibility of using Curcumin and turmeric  in the treatment of multifarious conditions.
