The turmeric is the most famous plant nowadays due to its health and medicine benefits and its curcuma too. These have been examined in more than 5600 published medical and bio-studies. The 5 year study of turmeric has showed more than 600 prevention benefits and therapy effects too and also 175 physiological benefits.
In these areas the turmeric has shown impacts:
- Cancer treatment
This spice was examined a lot and many studies even compare it to modern medicines like Lipitor/Atorvastatin for the cholesterol. In a study of 2008 in the journal of Drugs in R&D was said that the curcuminoids are better than the Atorvastatin for the endothelial issues, the pathology of blood vessels that trigger atherosclerosis and also it reduces inflammation and oxidative stress for diabetes 2.
As far as corticosteroids go, in a 1999 study was stated in the journal Phytotherapy Research that the turmeric polyphenols or the yellow saffron is better than steroids for the chronic anterior uveitis, an eye issue. In 2008, was published a study in the Critical Care Medicine that the curcuma is better than the corticosteroid dexamethasone in animal studies. This was made for protection of lung transplant injuries and inflammation genes. From a 2003 study we found out that in Cancer Letters was said how this same drug was compared to the dexamethasone for the lung ischaemia-repurfusion injuries.
Antidepressant and blood thinner
The Prozac/Fluoxetine and Imipramine are the best known meds for depression. In 2011, Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica stated that curcuma is better than both these drugs for the depression in animal tests. In 1986 study there were in vitro and ex vivo studies published in journal Arzneimittelforschung. It was said that the curcuma is better anti-platelet and prostacyclin in comparison to the aspirin. So it might be better for the people with vascular thrombosis and anti-arthritis therapy.
Anti-inflammation and chemo
In a 2004 study in the Oncogene journal was said how curcuma and the resveratrol were much better than the aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, naproxen, phenylbutazone, indomethacin, diclofenac, dexamethasone, celecoxib and tamoxifen too as far as inflammation and proliferation go with the tumor cells. In another 2007 study was said in the International Journal of Cancer that the curcuma is compared to oxaliplatin as better antiproliferation agent for the colorectal area.
Metformin is the main medicine here. In 2009 study in Journal Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Community was said the curcuma is good for diabetes and activates the AMPK increasing glucose uptake and is suppressing the gluconeogenic gene issues that suppress the glucose in the liver for the hepatoma. Also curcuma was found to be 500-100,000 times more potent than the metformin for the AMPK activity.
Turmeric is also potent for prevention and even curing some cancer types. There are 2 sections here for the integrative therapies. Many meds are effective but curcuma beats two groups: drug resistant cancer meds, and multi drug resistant cancer meds.
Up to 54 studies said the curcuma makes death to sick cells as opposed to regular meds. There are 27 studies that say the curcuma can induce this cell death or sensitize drug resistant cancers. One stack curcuma is really strong and is used as both medicine and food addition in many cultures. Use organic turmeric for cooking in small doses every day, so later in life you will have better immunity. It is better to take care of yourself, instead to heal yourself. There is a database of 1,585 ncbi-hyperlinked abstracts on turmeric that are to be downloaded as PDF from GMI Downloadable Turmeric Document.
