TURMERIC, CURCUMIN EXTRACT BENEFITS
Turmeric herb (Curcuma longa) is a plant native to south India. Its tuberous root like structures have been used as a condiment, and medically as an aromatic stimulant. Curcuminoids are the major substances that give the spice turmeric its yellow color. Curry powder which is extensively used in Indian cuisine, is largely made of turmeric and other spices such as coriander and fenugreek. Curcumin, the most active curcuminoid found in turmeric, has been shown to possess a multitude of beneficial effects in the treatment of cancers, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation. With this knowledge in hand, many research groups around the country, involving both private and public funding, are focused on the use of this plant-derived chemical in humans. Given the current body of evidence, curcumin, as it has for thousands of years in ancient Asian culture, may provide us a safe, effective therapy for many disease processes which plague our society.

In animal studies and in one human trial published in 1992, turmeric also showed promise in lowering cholesterol levels and fighting atherosclerosis, a buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries that can lead to heart attack. Preliminary studies in mice indicate that the curcumin in turmeric may even block the progression of multiple sclerosis (MS).
The interest in the plant's potential for preventing neurologic diseases, such as MS and even Alzheimer's, was spurred by the realization that elderly Indian populations that consume considerable amounts of turmeric in their diet are far less likely than their Western counterparts to develop such ailments. Scientists conjecture that turmeric benefits such neurologic illnesses by minimizing inflammation, a theory supported by recent findings that people (Westerners in this case) taking anti-inflammatories regularly for arthritis are less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease. More research in this area is clearly needed before any specific recommendations can be made.
