( — April 28, 2017) Las Vegas, NV — A wide variety of diseases and disorders are impacting many people today. Inflammation is thought to cause a myriad of these medical conditions. While there are many medications available for sufferers, it can be extremely helpful to prevent the development of certain conditions in the first place.

Curcumin may be a natural alternative against pro-inflammatory diseases. One of the pro-inflammatory diseases is obesity, which is also a major risk factor of conditions such as atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and other chronic diseases.

Obese individuals who have insulin resistance due to type 2 diabetes may also be suffering from chronic low-grade systemic inflammation. Obesity and insulin resistance are linked with systemic inflammation, which typically leads to increased inflammatory markers.

Curcumin is a powerful phytochemical that is thought to be the major source of many of turmeric’s potential benefits. It is believed to contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, antibiotic, and anti-carcinogenic properties.

In cellular and animal studies, it was found that curcumin may be beneficial for obese individuals and those with related metabolic disorders.

In one study, mice that were genetically obese were fed with a high-fat diet. The researchers found that curcumin reduced body weight as well as the fat of the subject animals. It was also able to help decrease the risk of insulin resistance and hyperglycemia.

The researchers also revealed that the reduction in body weight happened despite the maintenance or increase of the total daily caloric intake.

Turmeric may offer anti-obesity benefits, and researchers suggest its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects may decrease triglyceride syntheses and body weight. These agents may also improve fatty acid oxidation and basal metabolic rate. Curcumin has also been found to be helpful in improving insulin sensitivity in animal models.

Using turmeric powder and incorporating it in a variety of dishes and beverages is one of the best ways to take advantage of the potential benefits of curcumin. Turmeric has a deep yellow-orange color and a potent taste. It may be an excellent addition to the diet of consumers.

Individuals who do not want to incorporate turmeric with their food but want to take advantage of the potential benefits of curcumin may use supplements. Supplements are believed to contain higher levels of curcumin and therefore may be able to offer more potentially therapeutic properties.

Curcumin supplements available in the market vary according to several factors, such as the quality or the added ingredients. One of the most popular curcumin supplements contains black pepper extract, which may increase curcumin absorption inside the body.
