Turmeric Health Benefits: Have A Happy New Year With Turmeric

Each has been shown to have health benefits, but unless you have a specific condition such as inflammatory bowel disease, I favor using turmeric (especially in cooking) rather than taking curcumin pills. This reflects my general belief that, until proven otherwise in head to head studies, whole plants are usually a better choice than isolates . On the other hand, curcumin appears to have a more rapid and dramatic effect, and may be the better choice as a therapeutic (rather than a preventative) preparation. Here's a quick roundup of recent research on both turmeric and curcumin. Curcumin seems to delay liver damage that can eventually lead to cirrhosis, according to preliminary experimental research at the Medical University Graz in Austria. Kansas State University research found that adding certain spices, including turmeric, can reduce the levels of heterocyclic http://kunyit.my/haltia-serum/recommended-dosage amines -- carcinogenic compounds that are formed when meats are barbecued, boiled or fried -- by up to 40 percent.
