Turmeric/Curcumin As An Anti-Inflammatory Aid

The journal Oncogene published the results of a study that evaluated several anti-inflammatory compounds. It found that aspirin (Bayer, etc.) and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) are least potent, while curcumin is among the most potent anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative agents in the world. Turmeric’s primary compound, curcumin, is its active anti-inflammatory component.

Inflammation as a bodily function is not necessarily a bad thing. When the body is injured or ill, the immune system springs into action, bringing the immune system’s army of white blood cells to the area of concern via increased blood flow. Inflammation, in a healthy body, is the normal and effective response that facilitates healing. Unfortunately when the immune system overreaches and begins attacking healthy body tissues, conditions such as arthritis, leaky gut, and altered blood sugar control have a greater chance of developing. Turmeric can be taken as a supplement or as part of your diet. A supplement allows you to regulate and maximize your intake to treat inflammation. If you don't already have it, you can pick up the supplement in our office!
