Today I was sent a new report on Turmeric says a compound in turmeric promotes stem cell proliferation and differentiation in the brain.
The findings suggest aromatic turmerone could be a future drug candidate for treating neurological disorders, such as stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Here’s the study.
Research shows that turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, and antioxidant properties. Inflammation, if left untreated, can become a chronic health issue. And unlike aspirin or ibuprofen, turmeric’s curcumin reduces inflammation naturally, without damaging the liver or kidneys.
Healthier Talk reports:
“It has been found especially helpful in treating conditions like arthritis, sports injuries, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, tendonitis and various autoimmune diseases. Some research even suggests that curcumin may also help those suffering asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and, yes, even cancer.”
We’ve looked at Turmeric closely mainly because of its reported ability to create molecular hydrogen in the body. In fact the benefits of molecular hydrogen evidenced in all the new scientific studies seem to parallel everything published about Turmeric. Erica, our inhouse naturopath, makes the point that the difficulty of using Turmeric. It seems its absorbability is rather poor.
