Health benefits – Did you miss this ? This Spice is a Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Agent

Turmeric is a bright yellow spice plant also called Curcuma longa. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, found in the roots and bulbs of the plant.

Curcuma longa is a perennial plant in the ginger family. It grows about five to six feet high, has a trumpet-shaped, dull yellow flower, tough brown skin, and a deep orange flesh.                                    

Turmeric has a fragrant aroma and a bitter, slightly sharp taste. It grows in many tropical regions but the majority is grown in India, where it is used in curry.

The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, found in the roots and bulbs. They are typically boiled and then dried, which results in the yellow powder most of us are familiar with.

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. More recently, Western and holistic medicine evidence points to the benefits of turmeric in supporting healthy organ function in humans and animals.
A report published by the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center concludes curcumin has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer properties.
Scientists believe curcumin may have a very significant potential effect against a variety of malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, and other chronic conditions.
The list of curcumin’s preventive and healing properties is a long one. According to an overview published in 2007 of a study conducted at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center’s Department of Experimental Therapeutics1:

“Curcumin has been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer activities and thus has a really significant potential effect against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses.”

Also in 2007, ethnobotanist James Duke published a comprehensive summary of turmeric studies in Alternative and Complementary Therapies2. Duke reviewed around 700 studies that concluded: “… turmeric appears to outperform many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic debilitating diseases, and does so with virtually no adverse side effects.”

One of the conditions turmeric has been found to be beneficial for is arthritis. Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds, including six different COX-2 inhibitors. The COX-2 enzyme promotes pain, swelling, and inflammation, so inhibitors selectively block that enzyme.”  Dr Mercola
