Orlando, FL — May 05, 2016 - One of the oldest and most popular medicinal spices nowadays is called turmeric. This spice is widely used as a kitchen ingredient and as a medicine for a wide range of conditions.
Researchers highlight turmeric’s potentially effective healing effects on multiple myeloma. This condition develops when the bone marrow plasma cells turn cancerous. The formation of tumors in the bone marrow happens in the plasma cells.
Multiple myeloma is thought to be more prevalent among individuals that have a history of radiation therapy as well as older adults. Sufferers often experience symptoms such as anemia, pain in the bones or back, fatigue, bleeding problems, fever, numbness of legs and arms, or shortness of breath.
There is a variety of treatments for the condition such as radiation, chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, and certain medications. Unfortunately, there are complications such as paralysis, kidney failure, pneumonia, and bone fractures. Curcumin is thought to cause cell death or apoptosis.
Researchers conducted laboratory studies to determine the effects of curcumin on breast, skin, prostate, colon, and other types of cancer cells. The NF-kappaB takes care of sending signals to the genes to produce inflammatory, damaging molecules such as IL-6, TNF, and COX-2.
According to researchers, curcumin can inhibit the NF-kappaB activation. This is believed to suppress the proliferation of inflammatory molecules as well as cause cell suicide and cycle arrest.
Early clinical studies reveal that curcumin hindered the replication of myeloma cells and cause their death. The test was conducted with the use of human myeloma cells. This is not surprising since previous studies have already revealed that curcumin has chemopreventive and therapeutic properties.
Curcumin is believed to have the ability to fight a wide range of conditions. This phytochemical is widely studied, and is a popular major ingredient of many of the world’s most reputable supplements.
There are many individuals who prefer to use curcumin supplements than turmeric powder. Supplements are believed to have high concentrations of curcumin, and thus, they contain more therapeutic properties. Curcumin supplements are a popular natural alternative to pain medications, especially among athletes and individuals with arthritis.
While curcumin is thought to be very therapeutic, it has low bioavailability. This limits the delivery of its healing properties inside the body.
Many of the best curcumin supplements contain BioPerine, which is a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient. BioPerine is a black pepper extract, and is thought to be effective in increasing curcumin’s bioavailability (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-C3-BioPerine-Capsule/dp/B0166KAW8M/).
