(Newswire.net — January 12, 2018) Las Vegas, NV — Vaginitis is characterized by an inflammation of the vagina. There are medications widely used to fight the condition and its symptoms. However, there are also natural alternatives that are considered to be helpful against this condition.

Turmeric may be one of nature’s potential gifts against vaginitis. This condition is prevalent, and it produces symptoms such as itching, discharge, pain and swelling. It is often caused by infections.

There are common types of vaginitis, namely the bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, trichomoniasis, vaginal atrophy and trichomonas vaginalis. This condition may be triggered by the use of antibiotics, wearing tight clothing, unhygienic habits, sexual activity, birth control pills and uncontrolled diabetes.

Turmeric may be an excellent option for individuals who do not want to resort to the use of pharmaceutical drugs. This spice is native to India and other parts of Asia, and is widely popular in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine.

In addition to its use in a range of dishes and beverages, turmeric has also been widely popularized by the possible health-based effects it may offer. It contains a bioactive agent called curcumin, which is believed to be the major source of its unique substances.

Some of the agents contained within curcumin are considered to have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimalarial activities.

Turmeric has long been believed to reduce inflammation due to its possible anti-inflammatory properties. It has the potential to decrease the production of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation.

It also has the potential to downregulate certain types of gene activity involved in inflammation. This amazing spice may even increase the anti-inflammatory chemical levels in the body.

In a clinical study, the participants were given a gel that consists of anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, such as turmeric. The dosage lasted for 2 weeks.

It was found that within 1 week of dosage, the symptoms reduced drastically. After 2 weeks, the participants achieved significant relief from the symptoms. It was even revealed that there was an absence of infection. Researchers suggest that the possible anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric may help to fight inflammation in vaginitis.

Curcumin is a phytoestrogen, which is a plant source of estrogen. According to research, curcumin may act as a dietary antioxidant that may normalize hormonal imbalances, which normally occur during menopause.

In New Delhi, a private research institute developed a polyherbal cream containing curcumin as one of the primary constituents. This cream is formulated to reduce the growth of microbes, which cause gonorrhea. Some of these microbes are resistant to antibiotics.

It was found that the cream demonstrated a significant inhibitory action against candida species that were resistant to drugs. It also displayed impressive virucidal activity against HPV and HIV infections.

According to some experts, trichomonas develops due to the protozoan parasite trichomonas vaginalis. Statistics show that 174 million individuals worldwide suffer from this curable sexually-transmitted disease per year.

The strains have been developing resistance to pharmaceutical drugs. Thus, curcumin may be used as a potential alternative as it is believed to be highly effective against T. vaginalis.

Curcumin is available in the market through supplementation. There are many curcumin supplement brands available, and the most recommended are those that contain black pepper.

Black pepper may be potentially helpful in increasing curcumin absorption inside the body.
