TURMERIC EXTRACT BENEFITS
Curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory that neutralizes free radicals in the body. Which can support recovery by supporting tissue repair, therefore reducing the recovery time, allowing athletes to maximize their training schedule and improve performance.*
Helps joint health and eases arthritis. Since curcumin is an active anti-inflammatory compound, it helps with easing arthritic pain from sore joints. A multitude of studies have demonstrated turmeric’s potential for improving joint conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, particularly in terms of pain, swelling, tenderness, and joint mobility.*
Curcumin may be one of the most effective herbal substances in treating depression. Early trials showed that curcumin showed a similar result as Prozac which is effective in treating depression, (Sanmukhani J. et al., 2014). It is believed that the usefulness of curcumin in helping to boost neurotransmitters – serotonin and dopamine in the brain, is the reason it helps patients suffering from depression symptoms.*
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the world. Researchers have studied it for many decades and learned a lot about why it happens. Unsurprisingly, heart disease is incredibly complicated and various things contribute to it. Curcumin may help reverse many steps in the heart disease process. Perhaps the main benefit of curcumin when it comes to heart disease is improving the function of the endothelium, the lining of your blood vessels. The endothelial dysfunction is a major driver of heart disease. This is when your endothelium is unable to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting, and various other factors. Several studies suggest that curcumin can lead to improvements in heart health. Additionally, one study found that it’s as effective as exercise in post-menopausal women. In addition, curcumin can help reduce inflammation and oxidation (as discussed above), which can play a role in heart disease. In one study of 121 people undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery, researchers assigned them either a placebo or 4 grams of curcumin per day a few days before and after the surgery. The curcumin group had a 65% decreased risk of experiencing a heart attack in the hospital*
According to Cancer Research UK. A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.*
Studies have found that curcumin in turmeric is 400 times more potent than metformin (a common diabetes drug) in activating the enzyme AMPK, a "therapeutic target" for type 2 diabetes. Because curcumin can help fight inflammation and keep blood sugar levels steady, it's a useful tool to prevent or treat type 2 diabetes. One study followed 240 adults with prediabetes and found that taking a curcumin supplement over 9 months lowered their odds of developing diabetes.*
