Study Shows Daily Use of Turmeric Fights Alzheimer's, LDL, & Diabetes!

Turmeric Curcumin has been shown by studies to benefit cardiac health as well as reduce the risk of Alzheimer's Disease and dementia. Due to the significant benefits and minor side effects, The Alzheimer's Organization recommends individuals seriously consider a Curcumin supplement.


Daily Use of Turmeric Fights Alzheimer's

New data shows that it also might improve memory. A small clinical study shows that taking about 90 milligrams of curcumin by mouth twice daily for 18 months improves memory and attention in healthy, older adults. Pure turmeric powder has the highest curcumin concentration, averaging 3.14% by weight. Studies show that turmeric would be beneficial in doses ranging from 500–2,000 milligrams (mg) per day. Curcumin, derived from the rhizome curcuma longa, is one of the primary ingredients in turmeric and curry powders that are used as spices in Middle Eastern and Asian countries, especially on the Indian subcontinent. More recently, laboratory studies have demonstrated that dietary curcumin exhibits various biological activities and significantly inhibits colon tumorigenesis and tumor size in animals.


Curcumin displays both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, giving it the potential to be considered in the development of cancer preventive strategies and applications in clinical research. Experimental studies have shown the biological activities of the compound, but much more information on pharmacokinetics, bioavailability, and food content are needed. Whether the amount of curcumin in turmeric and curry powders is sufficient to suggest effects on biological activities and cancer risk is unknown. To determine and compare the quantitative amounts of curcumin that are present in several brands of turmeric and curry powders, a high performance liquid chromatography technique was used to analyze 28 spice products described as turmeric or curry powders and two negative controls.


In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas makes insulin, but the cells don't respond to it as they should. This is called insulin resistance. When glucose can't get into cells, the blood sugar level rises. Then the pancreas works harder to make even more insulin. Turmeric contains curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation and provides relief from the symptoms of an inflamed pancreas. It is recommended that pancreatitis patients take 500 to 700 mg of turmeric per day. Diabetes occurs when glucose builds up in the blood due to the pancreas not producing enough insulin (or not using it correctly) resulting in low energy levels. Insulin is a hormone that your body's cells need to absorb glucose. After food that you eat is digested, glucose passes into the bloodstream. Turmeric supports pancreas health thus lowers your chances of developing diabetes!


Pancreatic beta cells can begin working again in people in remission of Type 2 diabetes. The insulin-producing capacity of their pancreas can also be restored to normal levels. The speed at which beta cells responded to glucose improvement varies but it is very gradually over the first year after remission. It is possible that treatment of the pancreas with Turmeric or curcumin can ameliorate all the adverse changes and helps the organ back to its normal physiology. Results suggest that curcumin protects pancreatic beta-cells by attenuating inflammatory responses, and inhibiting ER/mitochondrial dependent and independent pathways of apoptosis and crosstalk between them. This uniqueness and absence of any detectable adverse effect proposes the possibility of using this molecule as an effective protector in the cellular stress mediated diabetes mellitus.


The main symptom of acute pancreatitis is a severe, dull pain around the top of your stomach that develops suddenly. This aching pain often gets steadily worse and can travel along your back or below your left shoulder blade. Eating or drinking may also make you feel worse very quickly, especially fatty foods.
