( — February 24, 2017) Las Vegas, NV — Turmeric is one of the most popular natural alternatives today. It is often used by individuals who suffer from certain medical conditions as well as those who seek to increase their immunity against ailments. However, it seems that individuals who are more likely to get certain types of diseases may also potentially benefit from turmeric use.

Experts reveal that turmeric may potentially offer life-saving effects to smokers. Cigarette smoking has been a common practice for many centuries. While its harmful effects remain to be known, the number of people who smoke continues to increase.

The lungs usually absorb the harmful components of cigarette smoke, and then from there, they are absorbed into the bloodstream. There are fatal consequences of cigarette smoking, particularly the risk of developing certain types of cancer.

In traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, turmeric has been used for its nutritional and medicinal values. This ancient spice is a popular kitchen ingredient and a possible alternative for a wide range of medical conditions.

Many of the potential benefits that turmeric is believed to offer come from its phytochemical called curcumin. This active ingredient is believed to contain antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiviral, antibiotic, and anti-carcinogenic properties.

Curcumin is believed to have the potential to eliminate harmful toxins from the body as well as protect the organs from damage. The body is usually exposed with mutagens with chain smoking, and this may increase the risk of cancer in the latter stages of life.

In a study involving smokers, it was found that a significant level of mutagens was present in the urine of the participants. They were given curcumin, and the researchers found that the mutagen levels decreased in the urine.

According to researchers, curcumin may successfully detoxify the harmful mutagens in the body. The potential anti-cancerous and chemo-preventive properties of curcumin are also thought to protect the lungs from toxins.

The activation of the NF-kB factor is believed to increase inflammation in the cells as well as trigger the growth of cancer. It was found that curcumin may potentially be able to suppress NF-kB factor activation, which may possibly reduce cancer risk.

Curcumin is believed to help induce cell death of cancerous cells. The phytochemical may be able to arrest the mitotic cell cycle and may potentially suppress carcinogenic cell proliferation.

Curcumin has the potential to help smokers. However, experts recommend that cigarette smoking should be avoided to reduce cancer risk.

Individuals who want to take advantage of the potential benefits of turmeric may take curcumin supplements, which are widely available in the market today.
