Science Confirms Turmeric is as Effective as 14 Drugs

The positive effects of turmeric have been experienced by an enormous number of people recently and it is also the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today.

The evidence showed that there are over 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies that treat its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin).

According to Sayer Ji, an author, researcher, lecturer, and advisory board member of the National Health Federation this sacred plant has revealed over 600 potential preventive and therapeutic applications. Additionally, he emphasized its 175 distinct beneficial physiological effects.

The growing number of studies have concluded that this natural medicine can be compared to a variety of conventional medications, including:

  1. Lipitor/Atorvastatin(cholesterol medication):

It is confirmed by the 2008 study published in the journalDrugs in R & D.  It can be effectively used against the pathology of the blood vessels that drives atherosclerosis, as it reduces inflammation and oxidative stress in type 2 diabetic patients.

  1. Corticosteroids (steroid medications):

According to the journal Phytotherapy Research the saffron-colored pigment known as curcumin is favorably compared to steroids. They are used in the management of chronic anterior uveitis, an inflammatory eye disease.

There are, also many studies conducted to check these effects (in 1999, 2003, 2008 published in Critical Care Medicine), which found that curcumin is compared favorably to the corticosteroid drug dexamethasone in the animal model.

For that purpose it is used as an alternative therapy for protecting lung transplantation-associated injury by down-regulating inflammatory genes.

  1. Prozac/Fluoxetine & Imipramine (antidepressants):

The journal Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica published a study in 2011 that favorably compared curcumin to the drugs in reducing depressive behavior in an animal model.

  1. Aspirin (blood thinner):

A study published in the journalArzneimittelforschung in 1986 found that curcumin has antiplatelet and prostacyclin modulating effects like the aspirin, so it may be used by the patients prone to vascular thrombosis and requiring anti-arthritis therapy

  1. Anti-inflammatory Drugs:

The journal Oncogene published a study in 2004, which emphasized that curcumin (as well as resveratrol) were effective alternatives to the drugs ibuprofen, aspirin, sulindac, phenylbutazone, indomethacin, naproxen, dexamethasone, diclofenac, celecoxib, and tamoxifen, and can be used against tumor cells.

  1. Oxaliplatin (a chemotherapy drug):

In the International Journal of Cancer in 2007 was published study that showed the effectiveness of curcumin as an antiproliferative agent in colorectal cell lines, which can be compared favorably with oxaliplatin.

  1. Metformin (diabetes drug):

The journal Biochemitry and Biophysical Research Community in 2009 published a study in which was explored how curcumin might be valuable in treating diabetes.

The results of this study showed that it suppresses gluconeogenic gene expression (which suppresses glucose production in the liver) and activates AMPK (which increases glucose uptake) in hepatoma cells.

Interestingly, the finding were that curcumin is many times more potent than metformin in activating AMPK.

Numerous of the studies indicated that curcumin can induce cell death or sensitize drug-resistant cancer cell lines to conventional treatment.

Additionally, there are studies that showed curcumin’s ability to either inducing cell death or sensitizing multi-drug resistant cancer cell lines to conventional treatment.

Knowing about the strong evidence of using turmeric as food and medicine in a wide range of cultures, can be a strong argument, also to use it as a drug alternative or adjuvant in cancer treatment.

It is recommended to use certified organic (non-irradiated) turmeric in lower culinary doses on a daily basis, which will help to not use that heroic doses later in life after a serious disease sets in.  It should be included in a healthy diet of all humanity.
