(Newswire.net — February 14, 2017) Orlando, FL — Food is critical for survival. However, for many, it is more than just a basic need. There are those who cannot help but be consumed by food that they end up eating more than they should.

Turmeric may be potentially helpful against binge eating disorder. Overeating is something that many people do from time to time, especially during celebrations. However, for binge eaters, the habit is rather uncontrollable and regular than occasional.

Binge eaters often use food to cope with negative emotions and stress. Unfortunately, even after they overeat, they feel worse afterwards. There are many binge eaters who even feel stuck in a vicious cycle.

Binge eating disorder is usually characterized by compulsive overeating, which pertains to the habit of consuming huge amounts of food. Sufferers often feel powerless and out-of-control while eating.

Early symptoms of binge eating often start during late adolescence or early adulthood. It can last up to two hours but there are those who binge eat the whole day. There are common features of the disorder such as uncontrollable binge eating, which frequently happens.

Individuals who usually overeat and feel upset or distressed afterwards may also be suffering from the disorder. They suffer from disgust, guilt, and depression due to lack of self-control.

There are ways to manage the condition such as managing stress, eating three meals a day and healthy snacks, and simply avoiding temptation. Sufferers may also stop having a strict diet as it can make them more susceptible to food cravings.

It is also advisable that they practice regular exercise, fight boredom, get enough sleep, and keep a food diary. They may also increase their intake of spices, such as turmeric.

Turmeric is an ancient spice that contains a powerful phytochemical called curcumin. Curcumin contains a variety of natural and potentially therapeutic ingredients that are believed to offer antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, antiseptic, and anti-carcinogenic properties.

It is believed that supplements may have the potential ability to reduce out-of-control appetite, which usually encourages the development of eating disorders. Nourishing the body with the right nutrients is believed to be helpful in restoring control over cravings and reducing the tendency to binge eat.

Curcumin is thought to be a powerful anti-obesity agent. It may potentially decrease fat absorption and the risk of weight gain.

Curcumin can be obtained by adding turmeric to various dishes and beverages. This phytochemical can also be obtained through supplementation.

There are many curcumin supplements available nowadays, some of the most popular of which contain piperine, which is a black pepper extract.
