Science Confirms: Turmeric More Powerful And Effective Than 14 Drugs
Turmeric is an incredible spice with many healing properties. It has been studied very thoroughly and in one research that lasted for 5 years are revealed over 600 potential preventive and therapeutic applications as well as 175 distinct beneficial physiological effects.
This spice can be compared to many conventional medications such as Lipitor/Atorvastatin, Corticosteroids, Prozac/ Fluoxetine & Imipramine, Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, Oxaliplatin and Metformin.
Lipitor/Astrovastatin is a cholesterol medication and curcuminoids can just as well treat endothelial dysfunction, the underlying pathology of the blood vessels that drives atherosclerosis, in association with reductions in inflammation and oxidative stress in type 2 diabetic patients. This study was published in 2008 in the journal Drugs in R & D.
In a study from 1999 that was published in the journal Phitotherapy showed that curcumin can manage chronic anterior uveitis, an inflammatory eye disease which is usually treated with steroids. In another study from 2008 published in Critical Care Medicine was found that curcumin can substitute dexamethasone in the animal model as an alternative therapy for protecting lung transplantation-associated injury by down-regulating inflammatory genes. And in an earlier study from 2003 published in Cancer Letters was discovered that instead of dexamethasone, curcumin can be used in a lung ischaemia-repurfusion injury model.
A 2011 study published in the journalActa Poloniae Pharmaceutica found that curcumin can substitute Prozac/Fluoxetine & Imipramine in reducing depressive behavior in an animal model.
A 1986 in vitro and ex vivo study published in the journal Arzneimittelforschung found that curcumin has anti-platelet and prostacyclin modulating effects compared to aspirin, indicating it may have value in patients prone to vascular thrombosis and requiring anti-arthritis therapy.
In a 2004 study published in the journal Oncogene found that curcumin can replace aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, phenylbutazone, naproxen, indomethacin, diclofenac, dexamethasone, celecoxib, and tamoxifen in exerting anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activity against tumor cells.
A 2007 study published in the International Journal of Cancer found that curcumin compares favorably with oxaliplatin as an antiproliferative agenet in colorectal cell lines.
In a 2009 study published in the journal Biochemitry and Biophysical Research Community was discovered that curcumin can be successful at treating diabetes since it activates AMPK (which increases glucose uptake) and suppresses gluconeogenic gene expression (which suppresses glucose production in the liver) in hepatoma cells. It was also found that curcumin carboxylase (when it is in the form known as tetrahydrocurcuminoids(THC)) can be 500 times to 100,000 times more potent than metformin in activating AMPK and its downstream target acetyl-CoA.
Turmeric has shown as very powerful at treating drug resistant- and multi-drug resistant cancers.
