Dual Rodent Studies Reveal Potential Ability Of Curcumin To Prevent Heart Failure

12 Jan

Orlando, FL — January, 2016— More and more people are turning to the use of natural alternatives such as curcumin. This natural ingredient has long been popularized by its therapeutic effects. Individuals who are suffering from certain heart conditions may take into account the use of this natural alternative.

Dual rodent studies reveal the potential ability of curcumin to prevent heart failure. This condition takes place when the heart is unable to pump sufficient amounts of blood required to satisfy the needs of the body.

Some people experience not getting enough blood in the heart. Some have hearts that are unable to pump blood due to lack of force. There are also those who have both of the problems. While heart failure doesn’t necessarily mean the heart absolutely stops working, it is nonetheless a serious condition that needs medical attention.

This condition actually develops over time as the pumping action of the heart gradually grows weaker. It can affect the right or left side of the heart, or both. Examples of the diseases that are damaging to the heart and causing heart failure are high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary heart disease.

When the heart is unable to pump efficiently, it can lead to the enlargement of the heart muscle, otherwise known as hypertrophy. Sufferers may also experience symptoms such as fatigue and swelling.

In the United States, there are about 5.7 million individuals who have heart failure. This condition is very common in the country, and affects both adults and children. The treatments and symptoms of the condition may differ, and as of the moment, it has no cure.

There are certain treatments and remedies that are believed to be helpful for the condition. Medicines, lifestyle changes, and the use of certain natural remedies such as curcumin are thought to be useful in helping sufferers live more active, longer lives.

The Journal of Clinical Investigation published two reports in 2008. The reports provide evidence that curcumin has some protective effects against heart failure.

The first study want conducted at Kyoto Medical Center by Koji Hasegawa and his colleagues in Japan. They treat rats with hypertensive heart disease with curcumin for 7 weeks. This condition often results in heart failure. It was found that curcumin has successfully decreased left ventricular wall thickness as well as maintained systolic function.

In the second experiment, curcumin was used in rats that were surgically induced with myocardial infarction, which is another model of heart failure. It was revealed that there was an improvement in the systolic function. It was also found that the increases in the diameter and thickness of the noninfarcted myocardium also reduced (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
