Orlando, FL— October 26, 2015 — The use of turmeric dates back thousands of years ago, especially in the traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. This ancient, medicinal spice is believed to offer various therapeutic benefits. Today, it is used to combat diseases and increase one’s immunity against ailments.
Turmeric is believed to be a powerful protector of the liver against damage and cirrhosis. According to healthcare providers, individuals who are already suffering from liver disease may protect their liver from further damage. Doing this can increase their chance in living a longer life.
“Turmeric powder is widely available at grocery or local health stores. It can be used in preparing dishes and everages,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
The therapeutic benefits associated with the use of turmeric are believed to come from its phytochemical called curcumin. Curcumin is popularized by the healing substances it contains namely the antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. According to scientists, curcumin can potentially protect the liver through its anti-inflammatory agent.
A Mexican study used rats to see the efficacy of curcumin. The researchers treated the livers of the rats with curcumin, and it was found that the natural ingredient indeed afforded protection to the liver against damage induced by carbon tetrachloride. They concluded that curcumin protected the liver from acute damage by inhibiting NF-kappaB activation, which also inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokines production.
An Israeli study, on the other hand, revealed that curcumin has helped in protect rats from liver cirrhosis induced by thiocetamide. The researchers concluded that curcumin has demonstrated its ability to slow down the development of liver cirrhosis by inhibiting the expression of TNF-alpha or tumor necrosis factor alpha as well as the collage alpha 1 (1) gene expression and hepatic stellate cell activation.
The herb is believed to be very effective in minimizing inflammation, slowing down cirrhosis, and fight hepatitis. Individuals who are more likely to suffer from these conditions can potentially gain benefits from using the natural ingredient.
There are people who take advantage of the therapeutic effects of curcumin by incorporating turmeric with their diet. Turmeric can add taste and color to dishes as well as to beverages. There are also those who use curcumin supplements.
Curcumin is known to have low bioavailability, and this is why many experts recommend the use of supplements that contain a combination of curcumin and BioPerine. BioPerine is a black pepper extract that increases the bioavailability of curcumin, and this increase its absorption inside the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
