|Turmeric became part of my daily supplement when I found
that I have pain in my left knee. While searching for natural remedy
to stop my knee pain, I was considering Glucosamine and Chondroitin for
arthritis pain as it seems to be a popular product for people with arthritis
As I prefer plant or herbal extract, I chose to try turmeric powder root extract instead of glucosamine as research shows that it does help to relieve joints pain. Like the first time I try coconut oil pulling to cure my bleeding gum, I was sceptical about turmeric power but the result turn out to be good as the joint pain starts to disappear after the first week of consuming 500 mg of turmeric root extracts with 95% Curcuminoids daily. You should give this natural remedy a try as I believe it is less harmful that other method of self-healing.
Millions take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) daily for arthritis and related inflammatory conditions, but are completely unaware that far safer, and at least as effective, natural alternatives already exist -- and are as easily accessible and inexpensive as the spices found in your kitchen cupboard.
Human research on the health benefits of turmeric is sparse, mainly due to the lack of capital available to fund expensive clinical trials. Despite many decades of investigation as a lead drug compound, and the availability of thousands of preclinical studies indicating turmeric's therapeutic value, few yet realize that this common kitchen spice may provide a suitable drug alternative for common health conditions.
The latest human study to clinically confirm turmeric's medicinal value was published in the Indonesian Journal of Internal Medicine in April, 2012 and found the curcuminoid extract of turmeric was able to reduce inflammation in patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis.
Turmeric is believed to have a similar effect on the body as anti-inflammatory drugs but because it works under the same system but doesn't go down a pathway that harms your body!
It is commonly available as "Curcumin" which is an activated form that has a greater effect - meaning you don't have to drown yourself in turmeric powder!
As I read The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, nutritionist Jonny Bowden mention that there are at least 30 studies showing that curcumin may have an anti-tumour effect, "either reducing the number or size of tumours or the percentage of animals who developed them".
While more human research is needed, he points to a 2006 study showing that curcumin inhibited the growth of human colon cancer. A New Jersey study found that, when combined with vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower, it may help treat and prevent prostate cancer.
There are also indications that it may help to prevent breast, skin and pancreatic cancer, childhood leukaemia and multiple myeloma. "While no-one is claiming that turmeric cures cancer, there is plenty of reason to believe it is a useful adjunct to a healthy diet," says Bowden.
I've read that it's safe for people without gallbladders to take Turmeric. Those with gallstones or bile duct obstructions should not take turmeric, as it increases bile production and makes the gallbladder contract, which may cause pain and problems for those people.
Finally, here are some turmeric success stories that you can have a read and see how this ancients herbs have save lives.
Have a healthy day and may Turmeric makes you healthy every day.
