Why is curcuma so good as medicine?
Experts said there are many ways in which curcuma acts, like:

- Modulating over 700 of the genes
- Positively changing over 160 physiological paths
- Order making in cell membranes
- Affecting signal molecules
- Interacting with: inflammation, histone, cell survival, immunodeficiency virus type H1V1 and protease, RNA and DNA, carrier proteins and metal ions.
Due to these effects, curcuma can benefit your health in many ways and stop health issues. A study published in the Natural Products Reports of 2011 said curcuma is good for:
- Lung and liver issues
- Neurological issues
- Metabolic disease
- Autoimmune disease
- Cardiovascular disease
More studies proved that hundreds of them claim curcuma can also:
- Make good cholesterol
- Suppress myocardial infarction and thrombosis
- Suppress MS
- Reduce system inflammation in obesity people
- Make more bile
- Prevent low density lipoprotein oxidizing
- Suppress signs of diabetes 2
- Protect from radiation damage and heavy metals toxins
- Make better wound healing
- Protect against cataract
- Inhibit platelets regenerating
- Suppress signs of rheumatoid arthritis
- Inhibit HIV replicating
- Safety from liver damage
- Safety from pulmonary fibrosis and toxicity
Turmeric might fight Alzheimer’s and other inflammation issues
Curcuma can cross the blood barrier with the brain and this factor made experts investigate more the potential for neuroprotective work and neuro-health in issues like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
This antioxidant also removes inflammation and makes brain healthier. For Alzheimer’s, animal studies said another active item in turmeric is good and is not the curcuma only.
This item is called aromatic turmerone and aids in endogenous neural stem cells to grow and such cells play a role in the brain repair and regeneration. The lead author Adele Rueger said some items can make stem cell brain proliferation, and a few drugs can make difference between stem cells and neurons, this is a big goal in regeneration. We found turmerone is one step closer to the goal.
Curcuma also helps here. Previous studies said curcuma stops deposits of bad beta-amyloids in the brain with Alzheimer’s and breaks up existing plaques. These people have more inflammation in the brain and curcuma is the best for this aim. It stops inflammation metabolic byproducts of glycooxygenase COX 2 and 5-lipooxygenase 5 LOX enzymes and other enzymes and hormones for inflammation.
Another issues benefitting from curcuma is osteoarthritis. A study of 2011 said patients who got 200 mg curcuma daily reduced pain, had more mobility too. Also turmeric blocks inflammation paths, prevents protein for pain and swelling as well.
Curcuma is universally good for all cancers
Among the best turmeric benefits is the cancer fighting. Curcuma is the most supported and studied item here for cancer and it even has vitamin D. Dr. William LaValley, lead natural medicine cancer expert said curcuma is unique and good for any cancer. This is strange, since cancer can vary for every type. Curcuma works in many paths, that is why it is so healthy.
When it gets in a cell, it affects over 100 molecule paths. LaValley also said curcuma fights cancer, regardless of increase of molecule targets or decrease in activity.
Also it is not toxic, does not affect healthy cells, targets JUST cancer cells too. It works in synergy with some chemo drugs and stops cancer growth.
