Fight Diabetes with Curcumin

by

A recent study found that diabetics who supplemented with curcumin for six weeks experienced significant improvements in insulin resistance and glucose tolerance.

Subjects who took curcumin, the natural pigment that gives the spice turmeric its yellow color, had increased activity of an enzyme that plays a key role in blunting the blood sugar rise that follows meals and produces insulin. However, these effects were not observed in non-diabetic subjects. (K.-I. Seo et al. Molecular Nutrition & Food Research. Published online ahead of print 8 April 2008, doi: 10.1002/mnfr.200700184)

The Anti-Aging Bottom Line: This isn’t the first study to show that curcumin has potential health benefits. In addition to its beneficial effects on blood sugar, previous research has found that it can help curb inflammation, reduce cholesterol levels, lower Alzheimer’s risk and even fight cancer.

QUICK TIP: Curcumin is not the only culinary spice with medicinal properties. Ginger, oregano and cinnamon are among some of the others. Learn More
