Turmeric: A Powerful Spice Shown to Reduce Type 2 Diabetes Incidence
Turmeric has been shown to have many healing properties. Turmeric, in addition to being a spice commonly used in cooking, has been used for a myriad of other purposes including aiding in treating ailments such as asthma, atherosclerosis, cancer, digestive disorders, eye problems, infections, and traumas of all kinds. Turmeric has also been shown to be powerful in treating and reducing childhood leukemia, preventing melanoma, treating depression and stunting the growth of tumors, and has long been considered a staple remedy in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine.
Turmeric contains biological substances known as curcuminoids. Seen as an exotic cure, the active curcuminoid in turmeric is curcumin. It is this curcumin that has been shown to provide antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardiovascular, metabolic and menstrual benefits, working in similar ways to vitamins C and E.
Researchers have found that the curcumin component has also aided in the reduction of Type 2 diabetes incidence. Diabetes is caused when the body is not making or using insulin the way it is supposed to. It is one of the most common forms of diabetes that develops in the body when there are extreme levels of glucose in the bloodstream. Research has shown that Type 2 diabetes happens over a period of time, when the cells of the body do not respond appropriately to the insulin as normal.
Since inflammation is a significant factor in the onset of Type 2 diabetes, clinicians, researchers and scientists believe that excessive inflammation in the body can eventually lead to Type 2 diabetes. With the effects that turmeric has when it comes to ridding the body of other issues, scientists propose that the curcumin component has a benefit in preventing Type 2 diabetes. In research, a plethora of evidence has shown that turmeric does indeed have a beneficial effect on individuals who already have the disease.
In experiments, researchers and scientists found that curcumin appears to lessen resistance of cells to insulin, which in turn, allows the pancreas to continue producing insulin. The component within turmeric showed consistency in reducing the inflammation and lowering blood glucose levels. The component in turmeric has also been proven to help with the regulation of the cells in the liver and muscles in addition to its added benefit of vigorous pancreatic function.
Researchers and scientists continue to study and test the potent and powerful spice for other benefits in addition to what has already been discovered and proven.
Research on curcumin shows that, to prevent Type 2 diabetes incidence, incorporating turmeric into everyday diet is of utmost importance. Since turmeric has no known toxicity levels when taken in huge doses, researchers recommend taking turmeric daily, both for those who have Type 2 diabetes and those who do not. Experts on the curcumin component within the spice suggest that taking at least 250 mg or more of turmeric three to four times a day will produce vivid improvement in strong body function. In addition to capsule form, turmeric can also be added to juice, milk and water.
