Orlando, FL — August 4, 2015 — Turmeric is one of the ancient, medicinal spices that is widely believed to offer a myriad of therapeutic benefits. It is extremely popular and has already become available in a supplement form. Individuals who are having problems with their cholesterol levels may consider using the natural alternative.
Turmeric is believed to be beneficial on cholesterol levels. According to researchers, it has the potential to lower blood pressure. Turmeric has been used as a kitchen ingredient as it doesn’t just add flavor to dishes and beverages, but also taste. For thousands of years, it has also been used as a medicine in many cultures from around the world.
“The spice’s therapeutic benefits are believed to be coming from its phytochemical called curcumin, which has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
The U.S. National Institutes of Health has registered over 70 clinical trials as of 2012. The studies were conducted to determine the positive effects of both turmeric and curcumin. Many of these research studies were animal-based, and revealed that, indeed, curcumin offers a myriad of health benefits.
In a study published in the Indian Journal of Pharmacology, the researchers tried to find out whether turmeric extract could provide some positive effects on mice with high-cholesterol diets. On the fifteenth day of the diet, it was found that the serum and liver cholesterol levels increased. The subject mice were given a 5 percent turmeric extract during the study. It was found that there was a reduction in the triglyceride levels and serum and liver cholesterol levels.
In 2008, a study was published in the Journal of Bangladesh Pharmacological Society. The researchers aimed at determining whether or not turmeric has cholesterol-lowering benefits. It was found that curcumin helped reduce blood cholesterol levels.
There have been many studies conducted to see the benefits of curcumin. The popularity of curcumin supplements has reached many people from around the world. As a matter of fact, there are many individuals who use curcumin supplements to combat a variety of diseases.
While curcumin is believed to be highly therapeutic, it has low bioavailability, and this means its ability to be absorbed inside the body is limited. If combined with a bioavailability enhancing ingredient such as BioPerine, curcumin’s therapeutic benefits can be efficiently delivered inside the body.
Experts recommend the use of curcumin supplements that contain BioPerine. These supplements are believed to be more beneficial and capable of providing therapeutic effects (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
