- Turmeric is a perennial shrub that is grown in India and other tropical areas of Asia. In the Indian Ayurvedic medicine turmeric was considered an herb that cleansed the entire body. Medically, it was used as an aid for digestive disturbances and as a treatment for fever, infections, dysentery, arthritis, jaundice and other liver problems. The health benefits of turmeric lie in the active ingredient called curcumin.
- According to a 2005 article in the Wall Street Journal, research activity into curcumin is exploding. In that year, supplement sales increased 35% from 2004, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health had four clinical trials underway to study curcumin treatment for pancreatic cancer, multiple myeloma, Alzheimer's, and colorectal cancer. The British Journal of Cancer reported a study that showed that curcumin can kill esophageal cancer cells in vitro. Curcumin also enhances the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF, which supports nerve growth.
- For adults, take two (2) capsules daily, preferably with a meal.
