Orlando, FL — June 03, 2016 - Curcumin, which is a phytochemical found in the medicinal spice called turmeric, has long been believed to offer numerous health benefits. It has also been widely studied for its potential to fight a range of medical conditions.
Laboratory tests highlight the potential ability of curcumin to fight the world’s deadliest diseases. This phytochemical is widely popularized by the healing substances it contains. Some of these therapeutic ingredients are its antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The human body has a lymphatic system, which is considered to be a disease-fighting system. It can be found throughout the body. However, fatal conditions such as the non-Hodgkin lymphoma jeopardize the health of the lymphatic system.
Lymphocytes, which are white blood cells, are believed to cause the tumor of this cancer. There are various types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma such as the B-cell and T-cell lymphoma. Cancer cells develop in the lymph nodes and affect other parts of the lymphatic system.
There are symptoms caused by the condition such as fatigue, fever, swollen lymph nodes, weight loss, and chest pain. While it has not been established yet what causes the condition, it is believed to develop when there is an excessive production of lymphocytes.
Individuals who undergo immunosuppressive therapy or suffer from viral and bacterial infections are typically prone to the condition. Individuals over 60 years old or those constantly exposed to chemicals used in fighting insects or weeds are also at risk.
Curcumin is thought to slow down or prevent the growth of various types of cancer cells. The antioxidant properties of the phytochemical are thought to provide the body with increased protection against activated oxygen molecules, which are free radicals.
According to experts, curcumin has the potential to interfere with the molecular pathways, which are involved in the development and spread of cancer.
In a number of laboratory studies, it was found that curcumin could cause cancer cell death. While tests conducted to determine the cancer preventive benefits of curcumin on humans are still underway, individuals with cancer are recommended to take high doses of curcumin.
In a study of curcumin and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cells, it was found that the phytochemical has the potential ability to inhibit NF-kappaB, which is a regulatory molecule. This molecule is responsible in sending messages to genes and telling them to produce inflammatory molecules.
These inflammatory molecules promote cancer cell proliferation such as COX-2, TNF, and IL-6.
Individuals who want to take advantage of the healing effects of this phytochemical may incorporate turmeric powder in preparing dishes and beverages. There are also curcumin supplements available, which are widely used nowadays (www.amazon.com/tumeric-curcumin-with-piperine/dp/B0166KAW8M).
