Orlando, FL — July 27, 2015 - Turmeric is a very popular natural alternative that is widely available nowadays in the form of supplements. Its use is associated with a range of health benefits especially among individuals who suffer from inflammation-related diseases. There are many therapeutic benefits of the spice, and one is favorable for lung health.

Turmeric is an excellent natural remedy for keeping the lungs healthy. Inflammation is widely associated with various lung conditions. It is believed to constrict the airways, and thus make it hard for sufferers to breathe. Once this inflammation is not properly addressed, it can lead to chronic inflammation as well as damage to lung tissue.

“Today, more and more people rely on natural alternatives than pharmaceutical drugs for increasing their protection against or fighting diseases,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

According to experts, the therapeutic compounds in turmeric are potentially responsible for the health benefits it provides. The spice has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which are believed to be very beneficial for overall health. There are also compounds believed to be helpful for regulating the immune system directly.

Research revealed that there are several ways turmeric could help with the prevention or reduction of lung symptoms. The diseases that the spice is believed to be capable of fighting are: asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), Emphysema, pneumonia such as bronchitis in the lungs, pleurisy, and lung fibrosis that is caused by radiation. It is also believed to be helpful for healing severe injury from heart arrhythmia or chemotherapy drugs.

According to experts, there are more than 380 pharmaceutical drugs that can cause pulmonary injury. What is even more alarming is that many of these injuries can be fatal mainly because they can result in lung fibrosis. Many sufferers of lung fibrosis get to live for only 3 to 6 years after the symptoms start to appear.

Unfortunately, conventional treatments such as cyclophosphamide chemotherapy can add up to the severity of lung fibrosis. The good news is that turmeric’s phytochemical called curcumin is believed to provide some powerful anti-inflammatory effects. According to studies, the compounds from turmeric do not affect the treatment activity of the drugs for lung conditions. As a matter of fact, curcumin is believed to make toxic medications more effective and safe to use. It is also believed to help quench free radicals ad improve the body’s natural antioxidant levels.

Curcumin supplements can be purchased online or from local health stores. Experts recommend the use of curcumin that contains a black pepper extract called BioPerine (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
