( — December 20, 2016) Orlando, FL — The heart is one of the most important organs in the body, but it is also more likely to be harmed from having unhealthy diet and lifestyle. There are many ways to take better care of the heart, and one may be through the use of curcumin.

Curcumin may have the potential to prevent tissue destruction in the heart. Curcumin is a polyphenol found in the ancient spice called turmeric. This spice has been utilized for thousands of years to potentially fight a range of medical conditions.

“Curcumin is believed to contain antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, antiseptic, and antiviral properties,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

This phytochemical is also believed to be an ideal supplement for individuals with congestive heart failure. Congestive heart failure is characterized by the body’s inability to keep up with the demands of circulation. For instance, individuals who move to higher altitudes or constantly engage in heavy exercises may be more susceptible to congestive heart failure. There are symptoms of this condition such as swelling in the feet and ankles. There are also those who suffer a slight puffiness in the feet.

Curcumin is believed to help block an enzyme that fuels a certain process, which triggers heart cell DNA to turn to swell cells in the heart muscles. Heart tissue damage may cause the heart to work harder, which may trigger the individual cells to undergo a process called hypertrophy

Overworked cells often become too large to fit in the heart tissues. This may disrupt their electrical connections with their neighbors. Heart rhythms become more and more unstable when the heart cells continue to undergo hypertrophy. Eventually, it may result not just in atrial fibrillation but also other forms of irregular heartbeat. When the heart works harder than it should, it may become inefficient in pumping blood.

It is believed that curcumin may have the ability to stop the action of histone acetylases on the heart DNA as well as potentially preventing hypertrophy. When the heart becomes able to achieve a single, synchronized heartbeat, blood flows more evenly out of the heart throughout the rest of the body.

One of the fascinating things about the use of curcumin is that it only takes a very small dose to potentially make some positive changes in the heart cell DNA, which may even prevent tissue destruction and the process of hypertrophy.

Clinical investigators even found that the intake of 10,000 mg of curcumin on a daily basis may not lead to serious side effects.

People who want to take advantage of the potential benefits of turmeric may add the spice in preparing their dishes and beverages. They may also utilize curcumin supplements, which are extremely popular nowadays.

Supplements may contain higher amounts of curcumin, which make them even more potentially beneficial. Some of the most popular curcumin supplements in the market today contain a black pepper extract called piperine (
