How Turmeric Can Prevent Disease, Relieve Pain and Reduce Inflammation

 

You probably know by now that turmeric is a culinary spice, a major ingredient in curry, and is a brightly colored relative to ginger root. Used widely in Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric gives mustard its vibrant yellow color. Curcumin is the particular constituent responsible for turmeric’s bright hue and potent anti-inflammatory properties.

Turmeric has been studied extensively and has been proven a safe and effective anti-inflammatory. In fact, respected ethnobotanist Dr. James Duke reviewed some 700 studies looking at turmeric benefits concluded that turmeric outperforms many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic, debilitating diseases, and does so with virtually no adverse side effects.

If you’re relying on NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) pain relievers for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis or chronic joint pain, listen up: the FDA recently strengthened its warning for popular painkillers like ibuprofen and naproxen and risk of heart attacks and stroke. If you are using these drugs regularly for pain relief, you may be at increased risk of heart attack and stroke, even if you’re not otherwise at risk, and even in the first few weeks of using the drugs. This is really scary.

Fortunately, nature has alternatives for you without the alarming side effects. Numerous preclinical studies have provided a solid basis for examining curcumin’s efficacy against many human diseases, and have I mentioned with virtually no side effects?! In fact, curcumin performs just as well as NSAID drugs for chronic pain relief in study after study (you can see a list of some of these studies here). In addition to pain relief, curcumin fights disease and improves your health!

Here’s a list of health benefits that turmeric provides

Anti-cancer: The high content of antioxidants helps protect the colon cells from free radicals that can cause damage to cellular DNA, which is a major benefit in the colon where cells turnover occur about every three days. Curcumin can assist the body with destroying mutated cancer cells, so that they cannot spread and cause more damage. It also helps to slow down tumor formation and prevents blood supply to cancer cells to stunt their growth.

Anti-inflammatory: The volatile oil part of turmeric has major anti-inflammatory properties. The more potent property of turmeric is the yellow or orange color, which is called curcumin. Unlike drugs/medications, curcumin has no toxic side effects such as ulcers, decreased white blood cell count or intestinal bleeding.

Cardiovascular health: The curcumin ingredient in turmeric can prevent the oxidation of cholesterol in the body; the oxidized cholesterol causes damage to blood vessels and builds up plaque that can cause heart attack or stroke. Preventing oxidation of cholesterol helps reduce the development of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease. Turmeric is an excellent source of vitamin B6, which can keep homocysteine levels from increasing and directly damaging the blood vessel walls. High intake of vitamin B6 can reduce the risk of heart disease.

Immune system: Its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties are useful for strengthening the immune system and is the first line of defence in the digestive system, to prevent bacterial or viral infections.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Curcumin can be an inexpensive and a successful treatment for inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Researchers believe that curcumin helps these diseases with the antioxidant activities it provides as well as the reservation of a major cellular inflammatory agent that reduces inflammation.

Liver function: Turmeric has the ability to improve the detoxification system by inducing the development of primary liver detoxification enzyme, glutathione S-transferase (GST) enzymes.

Rheumatoid arthritis: The curcumin in turmeric has powerful antioxidant effects that can neutralize free radicals, which move through the body and can cause damage to healthy cells. Free radicals are responsible for causing painful joint inflammation and can cause damage to the joints. Curcumin has been shown to be beneficial for improvements like shortened amount of morning stiffness, longer walking capability, and reduced joint swelling.
