Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. Relatively soon, science in Europe became interested in it, establishing what Indians have known for centuries, namely - it contains compounds with powerful healing properties. They are called curcuminoids.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very powerful antioxidant.
Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory compound. Scientists believe that chronic inflammation plays a major role in almost every chronic disease, so it is good to do what is possible to avoid these processes.
Curcumin has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. It blocks NF-Kb molecules that enter cell nuclei and become inflamed, experts say. Without going into details, the inflammation is extremely complex. The important thing in this case is that curcumin is a biologically active substance that fights inflammation at the molecular level.
Why is turmeric a powerful antioxidant?
Oxidative damage is one of the mechanisms leading to aging, as well as the emergence of many diseases. The main reason antioxidants are so important is that they protect the body from free radicals.
Curcumin as a powerful antioxidant can neutralize free radicals and increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes in the human body.
Curcumin also stimulates brain neurotrophic activity. In the past, it was thought that neurons could not divide and multiply after early childhood. However, it is now known that this is not the case. Neurons are able to form new connections, and in some areas of the brain to multiply. One of the main drivers of this process is brain neurotrophic factor, which is a type of growth hormone. It functions in the brain. Common brain disorders associated with low levels of this hormone are depression and Alzheimer's disease. Interestingly, curcumin has the ability to increase BDNF levels in the brain.
Turmeric reduces the risk of heart disease
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world. The main benefit of curcumin in this case is to improve endothelial function. It is well known that endothelial disorders are a leading cause of heart disease and include the inability of the endothelium to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting and other factors. Studies show that curcumin improves endothelial function. In addition, curcumin reduces inflammation, which plays a significant role in heart disease.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the world and the leading cause of dementia. Unfortunately, there is still no effective treatment for the disease. Inflammation and oxidative damage are known to play a role in the disease, and curcumin fights both. In addition, a key feature of Alzheimer's disease is the accumulation of protein bonds called amyloid plaques. Curcumin can help clear these plaques.
Turmeric also helps with arthritis
Arthritis is becoming an increasingly common problem. There are several different types, most of which involve inflammation of the joints. In studies in people with rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin has been extremely effective in relieving symptoms. Turmeric is an invaluable helper in this case as well.
