( — December 19, 2016) Las Vegas, NV — Turmeric has long been believed to offer a range of health benefits. The potential benefits of this ancient spice are thought to come from its polyphenol called curcumin.

Experts reveal curcumin may be a potential at-home alternative for scleroderma. This disease in the connective tissue causes tightening and hardening in the skin as well as internal organs. Sufferers often experience some difficulties moving or walking. They are also believed to be susceptible to organ failure.

The Scleroderma Foundation reveals that there are around 300,000 Americans with Scleroderma. This condition may not only reduce the quality of life of sufferers, but may also be disfiguring. There are localized and systemic types of scleroderma. Localized scleroderma effects the hands and face. Systemic scleroderma, on the other hand, is more serious since it effects connective tissues in the body as well as internal organs.

Some researchers suspect that scleroderma is a type of autoimmune disease as it is characterized by attacking the body’s own tissues, which leads to inflammation. This condition also triggers excessive collagen production, and this tightens and hardens the internal organs and skin. Females or people of African descent are believed to be at a higher risk for scleroderma.

There are scleroderma sufferers who use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other pain medications to help ease pain and reduce inflammation. Since these medications have long been associated with side effects, an increasing number of people are turning to the use of natural alternatives, such as turmeric.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), turmeric has the potential to reduce inflammation. Its phytochemical called curcumin contains a variety of substances, which are believed to offer antibacterial, antibiotic, antiviral, antiseptic, anti-carcinogenic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Curcumin has the potential to increase the production of cortisone as well as lower histamine levels, and this is believed to provide relief from inflammation. It has potential anti-inflammatory properties, which are thought to be responsible for its ability to help fight inflammatory diseases.

There are many individuals who utilize curcumin supplements on a daily basis. There are those who use this ingredient to possibly increase their protection against diseases. There are also consumers who believe that curcumin may help to fight the symptoms caused by the medical condition they are suffering from.

Since curcumin has low bioavailability, it’s absorption inside the body is limited. This phytochemical may offer more potential health benefits by combining it with black pepper extract, such as piperine.

Piperine is believed to be effective in increasing curcumin absorption inside the body.
