( — August 30, 2017) Orlando, FL — The phytochemical in turmeric called curcumin is believed to be mainly responsible for the spice’s healing effects. It has the potential to offer a variety of health benefits, including those beneficial to individuals who just underwent a surgical procedure.

Researchers revealed the benefits of using curcumin after laparoscopic gallbladder surgery. Laparoscopic techniques are used for gallbladder removal. The gallbladder is one of the most important organs in the body. However, when its health deteriorates, its removal is necessary.

In the research study, the scientists assessed the pain and fatigue experienced by the patients after the surgery. They are aiming to see the effectiveness of curcumin in easing these post-op symptoms.

The researchers had 50 participants who underwent laparoscopic surgery. They were then divided into two groups, namely the curcumin and placebo group.

It is worth mentioning that the participants maintained records of their fatigue and pain after the surgery.

The symptoms were evaluated after three days. The researchers also made the assessment once a week until the end of the three-week study. It was found that the participants who received curcumin achieved faster relief from fatigue and pain after the surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery is usually resorted to due to the fact that it offers speedy and less painful recovery. However, what makes it surprising is that it also comes with a long patient recovery period.

The recovery period is often indicative of the pain and fatigue levels after the surgical procedure. There were participants who reported pain despite the use of painkillers.

The authors of the study stated that the use of turmeric has long been widespread in India. It has been used for centuries as an acceptable solution for traumatic pain and fatigue.

The curcumin in turmeric contains a variety of therapeutic agents, which include its antibacterial, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic, antioxidant, and antitumor properties.

“Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties are thought to be effective in healing wounds faster,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

It is also worth mentioning that participants in the curcumin group experienced a reduced need of painkillers.

Today, curcumin has become a safer alternative to pain medications. Medications, such as Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used by individuals who suffer from painful conditions.

While these medications are temporarily helpful in easing pain, their use has been linked with side effects. Curcumin could be a safer alternative to these pharmaceutical drugs.
