Turmeric Benefit.....Your Curry Could Hold The Key To Fighting Cancer And Many Other Diseases.

Next time you are devouring your Indian curry...spare a thought for turmeric benefit.

turmeric benefit, turmeric, anti inflammatory If you have not heard of this spice, turmeric, (shame on you if not!)....did you know it may actually cut your cancer risk?

Turmeric has been found to be highly effective at inhibiting recurring melanoma (skin cancer) in people at high risk. Research has also demonstrated it is effective in preventing against colon and breast cancer.

Turmeric has great anti-inflammatory properties which has aroused great interest, as well as its effects on cholesterol and cancer. In fact in China it is used to treat the early stages of cervical cancer.

Just recently (July 2009) Time magazine ran an article by Dr. Scott Haig. One of his patients, who was recovering from hip replacement surgery, was not responding to the normal anti-inflammatory medications. So...he gave him turmeric capsules.

This is what he reported..."Soon enough, there was no pain at all. And his lower back and hands, which ached before, were also now pain-free."

Turmeric is great news if you suffer inflammation of any kind.

In fact click here to discover what potential dangers are associated with inflammation.

Now...back to turmeric benefit.

Question..What is used to flavour and colour Indian curries? Answer..The powdered Rhizome of the turmeric plant.

Practitioners of Ayurveda (India's holistic medical system), have been prescribing turmeric for the following benefits....

  • Antibacterial
  • Antibiotic
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Digestive

It is only very recently that the herb been studied for the prevention of diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

The Turmeric Benefit...How It Works.

The key (or magic) component of turmeric is called curcumin. This is a powerful little substance which boasts antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-amyloid properties.

Curcumin is the compound that gives turmeric its intense yellow colour, and researchers believe that this compound inhibits tumor-promoting enzymes and interferes with the growth of cancerous tumors.

Now, here is the interesting bit about Anti-amyloids. Apparently they stop a protein in your brain (called beta-amyloid) from producing. It is believed to be linked to Alzheimer's disease. Many scientists are saying that one of the main causes of Alzheimer's could be a fault in the way beta-amyloid is produced and how your body gets rid of it.

In a recent article in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease it was revealed that scientists had discovered a chemical, found in curcumin, helped stimulate the immune system to rid the brain of amyloid beta.

Curcumin is an antioxidant, and, as we all know, it neutralizes the free radicals that raise cancer and heart disease risk.

Interestingly, Curcumin is several times more potent than vitamin E as an antioxidant, and it protects the brain from lipid peroxidation.

Sidebar: Lipid peroxidation refers to the oxidative degradationof lipids. It is the process whereby free radicals `steal' electrons from the lipids in cell membranes...result? Cell damage in the brain.

It's worth noting that culinary turmeric does not contain enough curcumin to protect against supplements are recommended...more on that later.

The list of benefits just goes on and on.....

Turmeric benefit on the liver. It stimulates the flow of bile, protecting against damage from toxins and improving the metabolism of fats. Liver function is enhanced and turmeric also helps to cleanse the blood of toxins and impurities.
