7 Reasons to Start Eating More Curcumin

Posted by

Turmeric is a healing substance that I think everyone should consume daily in some form. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits are too good to ignore. , the yellow root it’s derived from, has a long history of culinary and medicinal use as a spice.

Turmeric is great to cook with, or you can conveniently take curcumin as a supplement.

Here’s a summary of the curcumin benefits we’ve written on over the last few years:

1. Curcumin protects your brain

Extensive research has demonstrated the protective effects of curcumin on the brain. In one study, curcumin inhibited the accumulation of destructive beta amyloid protein in the brain – the “tangles” that are the hallmark of cognitive decline. What’s more, it broke up existing plaques by boosting immune cells called macrophages to clear out the plaque. Read More

2. Curcumin boosts mood

A recent study in India showed that curcumin may increase levels of serotonin and dopamine, two neurotransmitters known to boost mood, which are targeted by antidepressant drugs. Researchers also found that curcumin used in conjunction with certain antidepressants may have a synergistic effect, increasing its effectiveness. Read More

3. Curcumin reduces muscle soreness after exercise

Research suggests that curcumin may help with everyday exercise compliance by offsetting some of the negative effects of a vigorous workout. In the study, curcumin reduced exercise-induced inflammation in mice, possibly by inhibiting inflammatory compounds such as COX-2, prostaglandins and leukotrienes. That improved running performance and recovery. Read More

4. Curcumin boosts immunity

Researchers have found that curcumin molecules insert themselves into cell membranes making them more stable and orderly. By doing this, the cell becomes more resistant to attacks by disease-causing microbes and ultimately, infection. Read More

5. Curcumin balances blood sugar

A study showed that subjects who supplemented with curcumin for six weeks experienced significant improvements in insulin resistance and glucose tolerance. Subjects who took curcumin had increased activity of an enzyme that plays a key role in blunting the blood sugar rise that follows meals and produces insulin. Read More

6. Curcumin keeps cells healthy

Researchers found that curcumin fights abnormal cell mutations at their root cause by derailing the initiation phase of ten different pathways that cause them to multiply and spread throughout the body. Curcumin has also been shown to interfere with the production of advanced glycation end products that promote the accumulation of dangerous inflammatory byproducts that lead to cellular mutations. Read More

7. Curcumin increases the effectiveness of other supplements

Curcumin improves the performance of some other powerful natural healers. In one study, researchers from UCLA found that a combination of curcumin and vitamin D worked well to clear harmful amyloid plaques found in the brains of people with cognitive decline. In another study, curcumin combined with green tea extract worked better than either alone in reducing cell mutations. Read More

Looking to boost your curcumin intake to the level used in these clinical studies? 
Here’s the Curcumin Supplement I Recommend:

If you don’t prepare a lot of your own meals, or if you just want to make sure you’re getting a standardized amount of curcumin on a daily basis, it’s a smart bet to take a curcumin supplement. If you’re looking for a superior curcumin supplement at a reasonable price, I invite you to try the formula I developed working with the Scientific Advisory Board at my nutritional supplement company, Stop Aging Now.

    I sprinkle some Turmeric on my toast under my butter and egg one 1 slice and 1 with jam every morning. I think it helps my immunity. The last cold I had was about 6 years ago. I started to sneeze after supper on Thursday. I sneezed during our curling game Friday afternoon. My sneezing stopped after supper. Saturday morning, there was not indication that I ever had a cold. It lasted one day, One doctor said that the average cold lasts a week. If you go to the drug store and buy all the cold medications, you can cut it down to 7 days. I did it in one day.

    I am a 60 female, do you offer anything for acid reflux, i do not want to take drugs. Thank you

    • Karel Riley on August 4, 2014 at 9:42 PM

      Research natural remedies for GERD. There are several. My son has serious case of it and I’ve been researching and having him try things. We are still looking and testing, but do try buffered vitamin C and aloe vera juice. They are both good for you, they are hard to overuse, so give them a try for starters.

      • Patricia Singleton on April 1, 2015 at 4:10 PM

        Too much aloe vera juice will give you diarrhea. If it does, lower how much you are taking.

      Jamie, I was just diagnosed with acid reflux after
      many years of not knowing what was wrong, and
      paying for many visits to doctors who also did not
      know what was wrong. Go to an ENT doctor. Mine
      told me to buy Prilosec OTC which I bought at Costco. Cost was about $23 for 3 packs of 14 tablets each. I take one each morning on an empty
      stomach with water. You need to also modify your diet. Cut down on tea and coffee (even decaf), and alcohol, do not eat tomatoes or other acidic foods, do not eat chocolate, avoid spicy and fatty foods, do not smoke, do not eat or drink for 3 hours before bed, elevate your upper body for sleeping (extra pillows?). Eat small meals, slowly. Do not exercise right after eating. Good luck

      Thank you for your feedback.

      Supplements including curcumin can interact with medications and may not be appropriate for use in individuals with certain medical conditions. Cancer patients need to be especially careful and should consult with their Physician before using any supplement.

    I started taking Curcumin 2 years ago after radiation treatment for prostate cancer. I was given several medications in recovery , but soon had many side affects. I stopped those meds, stopped cows milk, cut way down on Wheat products, quit my BP and thyroid meds 2 months ago and eat more fresh vegs, organic too, and feel much better. I’m 75 and having a great life.
