10 Conditions Turmeric Helps Fight

From boosting memory to alleviating pain and inflammation, turmeric has been shown to help a whole host of health issues. The delicious, brilliant-yellow-colored curry spice deserves a place in your daily diet thanks to its many health-boosting benefits.

Here are some of the many reasons to eat more turmeric:

Tendonitis

A root similar to gingerroot, turmeric contains a potent compound that, not only gives it its signature yellow color, but also its anti-inflammatory properties. In a study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry researchers found that curcumin improved the healing of tendonitis, which involves inflammation of the tendons that help maintain our structural integrity. Thatís great news for anyone suffering from tendonitis, whether from a tennis or golf injury or gardening.

Urinary Tract Infections

Recent research in the Journal of International Molecular Sciences found that curcumin helps to prevent kidney stones from forming in the urinary tract. It appears to prevent them from crystallizing in the first place. Considering the painful nature of kidney stones, anything that helps prevent their formation should be well-received.

Memory Boosting

Youíve probably heard of curcuminís benefits for memory but you might not realize just how quickly it starts working. Research published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology showed that within only one hour after taking a supplement containing one of turmericís active ingredients, curcumin, study participants had a significant improvement in memory and attention tasks compared to the placebo group.

Alzheimerís Protection

Research shows that the curcumin may even help to protect the brain against the plaque-formation found in Alzheimerís disease. It seems to work by preventing the formation of beta amyloid plaquesówhich are key factors in Alzheimerís disease. Even Alzheimerís patients who exhibited severe symptoms, including: dementia, irritability, agitation, anxiety and apathy, had excellent therapeutic results when taking curcumin, according to another study published in the Japanese medical journal known as Ayu. In that study participants had significant memory improvements when they supplemented with 764 milligrams of turmeric that contained 100 mg of curcumin, every day for a year.

Prostate Cancer

Turmeric shows promise against prostate cancer. In a study published in the medical journal Precision Oncology, researchers found that compounds in turmeric, as well as others found in apples and grapes, starved and shrunk prostate cancer tumors. While more research needs to be done on this promising research, it certainly offers hope for sufferers of prostate cancer. And, considering that turmeric is, not only safe, but also offers many other health benefits, it is worth considering in the prevention and treatment of the disease

Parkinsonís Disease

Turmeric also offers promise in the treatment of Parkinsonís diseaseóa degenerative neurological disorder that is characterized by impaired motor functions and shaking. In a study published in Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine, researchers found that turmeric may protect the nervous system from the toxins involved in causing the nervous system degeneration in Parkinsonís disease.

Colon Cancer Prevention and Treatment

Curcumin not only shows benefits for prostate cancer, it has been found in multiple studies to reduce colon cancer risk. In one study published in Cancer Prevention Research researchers found that curcumin suppressed the ability of colon cancer cells to proliferate, suggesting it may be beneficial in preventing and treating the disease.

Osteoarthritis

In a study published in the journal Clinical Interventions in Aging, researchers found that turmeric was as effective as ibuprofen in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knees.

Diabetes

Research in the medical journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that turmeric can help regulate blood sugars as well as neuropathy and other problems linked to diabetes.

Obesity

If youíre having trouble losing weight you might want to consider adding more turmeric to your diet and supplementing with curcumin. Thatís because research in the journal Biofactors found that the spice alleviated the inflammation isolated as a cause in overweight and obesity. It not only helped with obesity, it helped to protect against some of the health-damaging effects of obesity.

You can add the spice turmeric to your soups, smoothies, stews and curries; however if youíre suffering from a serious health condition like those above you may benefit from higher doses of curcumin. Ideally choose a standardized extract of curcumin. Follow package directions for the product you select. A typical supplementary dose is †400 mg per day but discuss it with your doctor prior to use.

My father had ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) for 3 years His first symptoms were weakness in his hands and losing his balance which led to stumbling and falling. He never lost the ability to swallow or breathe. His one hand, then his legs, were affected first; then his arms. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help him. The medical team did even less. His decline was rapid and devastating. The psychological support from the medical centre was non-existent and if it were not for the sensitive care and attention of his primary physician, he would have died . There has been little if any progress in finding a cure or reliable treatment. So this year his primary physician suggested we started him on Natural Herbal Gardens ALS Herbal mixture which eased his anxiety a bit,We ordered their ALS herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report this ALS herbal treatment reversed my dad condition. His quality of life has greatly improved and every one of his symptoms including difficulty in walking and slurred speech are gone. Their official web site is ww w. naturalherbalgardens. c om He will be 74 soon and can now go about his daily activities
