Curcumin by "Natural Society"
Curcumin comes from the Turmeric plant and has been in India as a spice for centuries.
Traditionally, people used curcumin to add flavour to their dishes, with many cultures recognizing the spice for its many medicinal properties.
As the use of curcumin continues to grow in popularity, so does the acknowledgement of its many benefits.
The world of modern medicine has discovered that curcumin is effective in the treatment of diseases and in the prevention of cancer.
However the benefits of curcumin do not end there.
Amazingly, curcumin has been found to benefit over 560 negative conditions including: Alzheimer’s disease, oxidative stress, DNA damage, inflammation, HIV infections, and cancer.
Studies performed on lab mice showed that curcumin also effectively treated kidney problems and restored kidney functions.
The rise in Alzheimer’s disease cases has opened the eyes of the modern world to the gravity of this disease, with curcumin showing extreme promise in the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s.
Studies have shown that curcumin can be instrumental in the treatment of this disease.
Curcumin is even effective in lowering bad cholesterol levels naturally. Curcumin is effective in lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and increasing HDL, or good cholesterol. When taken on a daily basis, curcumin may significantly decrease LDL levels.
Preliminary findings on studies in the use of curcumin in the treatment of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) have shown that the virus does react to curcumin treatment.
As more health professionals become aware of this information, we could possibly see curcumin being formally used in the treatment of HIV in the future.
Curcumin is also used in the treatment of arthritis and cataracts.
As studies on the health benefits of curcumin are being performed routinely, more and more health benefits are expected to be seen in the future.
