5 Major Diseases (among 600 conditions) That May Be Prevented Or Treated With Turmeric
Turmeric, a yellow spice used in many Asian cuisines, especially for curries, has been used in India and parts of Asia for thousands of years for its health promoting properties and is now enjoying increasing popularity in Western nutrition. Scientists have identified curcumin, a substance in turmeric, as the anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent mainly responsible for turmeric’s health benefits, although there are other compounds in turmeric that are believed to be medicinal as well.
Medical author and researcher Christian Wilde is available to discuss the evidence-based benefits of turmeric as it relates to 5 of the most common diseases in the US today
• The history of turmeric
• Why the western world is now becoming aware of turmeric’s benefits
• Is there such thing as too much turmeric?
• 5 diseases turmeric may fight against and how:
o Heart Disease— Turmeric reduces inflammation and oxidation (two important factors of heart disease) and has also been shown to improve function of the endothelium and reduce the enlarged heart, common in heart failure
o Cancer— An inflammatory disease benefits from Turmeric’s active ingredient curcumin has been shown in hundreds of studies (more than 7000 biomedical studies and articles in Pub Med. to help prevent growth, progression and metastasis of certain tumors and cancers. According to world leader in turmeric research from MD Anderson’s Cancer Center, “I have seen no cancer that has not benefited from turmeric.” -Bhrat Aggarwal
o Diabetes—Turmeric has the ability to improve effects of diabetic medication, lower blood sugar, reduce the risk of developing insulin resistance, and also aid in weight loss.
o Alzheimer’s— Turmeric increases Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) which has been linked to a lower chance of developing brain-related diseases. For patients already dealing with AD, turmeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties have been linked to decreased Beta-amyloid plaque buildup and decreased microglia formation, improving the overall memory in patients with AD.
o Arthritis— Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties have been shown in some studies to be more effective than anti-inflammatory drugs known as NSAIDS

Indeed, turmeric has plenty of health benefits. We should also take into account quality control for turmeric products. As noted by the American Botanical Council, the replacement of natural curcumin with synthetic curcumin is a deliberate practice. Thus, we should only buy products from companies with stringent quality control procedures.
