With the latest studies in this field, it is expected that these substance will increase their popularity because the studies suggest that curcumin and turmeric blocks cancer growth. The active ingredient in turmeric can stop the activity of an enzyme that stimulates the expansion and growth of neck and head cancer.
The lab results have confirmed that the enzymes located in the mouths of patients that were supporting the growth of cancer were totally inhibited by the curcumin-based supplementation. In other words, the consumption of curcumin stopped the growth and expansion of malignant cells. Another scientific study has suggested that curcumin can reduce tumors for up to 81% which was another piece of evidence related to the anti-cancer properties of turmeric and curcumin.
The truth is that the majority of Americans are not aware of the health benefits of turmeric. On the other hand, turmeric has been used and praised for its medicinal properties in the Middle Eastern and South Asian countries for centuries. Dozens of different cultures have acknowledged the fact that this spice has the ability to improve overall health and they are using it as part of many dishes.
One of the best things about this exotic spice is that it is very inexpensive when we compare it with some cancer drugs that usually don’t lead to any improvement. As a matter of fact, in many cases they can make the situation worse and even lead to fatalities in patients. The good news is that many healthcare specialists have recognized the positive effects of curcumin and turmeric and hopefully these substances will find their place in our diets. If the trend continues, it is very likely that they will surpass the popularity of vitamin D.
