Science ledderhose disease images confirms turmeric as effective as 14 drugs fuller life

Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence ledderhose disease images today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies. In fact, our five-year long research project on this sacred planthas revealed over ledderhose disease images 600 potential preventive and therapeutic applications, as well as 175 distinct beneficial physiological effects. This entire database of 1,585 ncbi-hyperlinked turmeric abstracts can be downloaded as a PDF at ledderhose disease images our Downloadable Turmeric Document page, and acquired either as a retail item or with 200 ledderhose disease images GMI-tokens, for those of you who are already are members and ledderhose disease images receive them automatically each month.

• Lipitor/Atorvastatin(cholesterol medication): A 2008 study published in the journal Drugs in R ledderhose disease images & D found that a standardized preparation of curcuminoids from Turmeric ledderhose disease images compared favorably to the drug atorvastatin (trade name Lipitor) on endothelial dysfunction, the underlying pathology of the blood vessels that drives atherosclerosis, in association with reductions in inflammation and oxidative stress in ledderhose disease images type 2 diabetic patients. [i] [For addition curcumin and ‘high cholesterol’ research – 8 abstracts]

• Corticosteroids (steroid medications): A 1999 study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found ledderhose disease images that the primary polyphenol in turmeric, the saffron colored pigment known as curcumin, compared favorably to steroids in the management of chronic anterior ledderhose disease images uveitis, an inflammatory eye disease. [ii] A 2008 study published in Critical Care Medicine found that ledderhose disease images curcumin compared favorably to the corticosteroid drug dexamethasone in the ledderhose disease images animal model as an alternative therapy for protecting lung transplantation-associated injury by down-regulating inflammatory genes. [iii] An earlier 2003 study published in Cancer Letters found the ledderhose disease images same drug also compared favorably to dexamethasone in a lung ledderhose disease images ischaemia-repurfusion injury model. [iv] [for additional curcumin and inflammation research – 52 abstracts]

• Aspirin (blood thinner): A 1986 in vitro and ex vivo study published in ledderhose disease images the journal Arzneimittelforschung found that curcumin has anti-platelet and prostacyclin modulating effects compared to aspirin, indicating it may have value in patients prone to vascular ledderhose disease images thrombosis and requiring anti-arthritis therapy. [vi] [for additional curcumin and anti-plateletresearch]

• Anti-inflammatory Drugs: A 2004 study published in the journal Oncogene found that ledderhose disease images curcumin (as well as resveratrol) were effective alternatives to the drugs aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, phenylbutazone, naproxen, indomethacin, diclofenac, dexamethasone, celecoxib, and tamoxifen in exerting anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activity against tumor cells. [vii] [for additional curcumin and anti-proliferative research – 15 abstracts]

• Metformin (diabetes drug): A 2009 study published in the journal Biochemitry and Biophysical ledderhose disease images Research Community explored how curcumin might be valuable in treating ledderhose disease images diabetes, finding that it activates AMPK (which increases glucose uptake) and suppresses gluconeogenic gene expression (which suppresses glucose production in the liver) in hepatoma cells. Interestingly, they found curcumin to be 500 times to 100,000 times (in the form known as tetrahydrocurcuminoids(THC)) more potent than metformin in activating AMPK and its downstream ledderhose disease images target acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC).

Another way in which turmeric and its components reveal their ledderhose disease images remarkable therapeutic properties is in research on drug resistant- and multi-drug resistant cancers. We have two sections on our site dedicated to researching ledderhose disease images natural and integrative therapies on these topics, and while there are dozens of substances with demonstrable efficacy ledderhose disease images against these chemotherapy- and radiation-resistant cancers, curcumin tops both lists:

Or, better yet, use certified organic (non-irradiated) turmeric in lower culinary doses on a daily basis so ledderhose disease images that heroic doses won’t be necessary later in life after a serious disease ledderhose disease images sets in. Nourishing yourself, rather than self-medicating with ‘nutraceuticals,’ should be the goal of a healthy diet. [learn more at Sayer Ji’s new collaborative project EATomology]
