( — November 30, 2016) Orlando, FL — The potentially therapeutic effects of turmeric are not foreign to millions of people from around the world. As a matter of fact, there are a growing number of consumers who take turmeric supplements on a daily basis. This ancient spice is often considered to be more helpful for certain conditions than some pharmaceutical drugs.

Experts reveal that turmeric has the potential offer more benefits than steroid medications. These type of medications are usually used in the treatment of inflammatory, immunological, and allergic diseases.

There are many known uses of steroids such as in the treatment of skin disorders, arthritis, and allergies caused by multiple sclerosis, stress related disorders, immunological problems, and even cancer.  They are widely known for their ability to help reduce inflammation and improve a mismanaged immune system.

Steroids function by binding to the steroid receptors in the body’s cells. These steroid receptors are also considered as proteins that particularly bind steroids. After binding to the steroid receptors, they travel into the nucleus. The nucleus is the part of the cell that stores genetic material and helps control gene activity.  Steroids then start activating the genes that release anti-inflammatory agents and suppress inflammation-promoting genes.

Turmeric, on the other hand, is an ancient spice that has long been used in preparing food and beverages. It has also been a popular natural alternative for a range of conditions.

Turmeric contains curcumin, which is a phytochemical believed to have a variety of therapeutic properties. Curcumin may potentially offer antibacterial, antibiotic, anti-carcinogenic, antioxidant, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties.

This spice is believed to be an effective alternative for a variety of conditions such as eye problems, swelling, cough, cold, pain, arthritis, skin disorders, and potentially even cancer.

Turmeric is also considered to offer physiological therapeutic effects similar to that of steroids. According to research, this spice may have the ability to help inflammation of various types such as swelling, pain, immunologic imbalance, eczema, and skin allergy reactions.

It is believed that curcumin’s potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects scavenge the oxidants in the inflamed and arthritic tissues. This spice is thought to control the NF-kB, which is a signaling factor and the main target of steroids in controlling inflammation.

Turmeric is also thought to reduce burning sensations caused by certain disorders. Like steroids, turmeric also has some potentially protective impact on tissues and may have the potential ability to help prevent the development of chronic diseases.

The curcumin contained in turmeric is also thought to be effective in controlling the secretion of natural steroids that are produced in the body.
