Turmeric information has become a much talked about topic in recent time particularly with regards to the therapeutic properties that it may contain and as a result many research studies appearing.
It is a relative of the ginger family and Indians have been using this spice for over 2,500 years and some sources say 5,000. It is known to have a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent and can be helpful when applied topically to cuts and burns. It can also be used as a natural treatment for arthritis due to its anti-inflammatory properties and may also be beneficial for people suffering anxiety disorders and cholesterol.

GreenMedia on 22 March 2015 advise of a new study that finds turmeric extract selectively and safely killing cancer stem cells in a way that chemo and radiation cannot. Click this link to read the full article. This is fabulous news! When we have mashed potatoes I always add a good dob of turmeric to the mash – slightly colours it yellow and gives a nice flavour to the potatoes but what a great impact it is having on our life in the way of prevention.
I love to be able to share this turmeric information with people in an endeavour to help them maintain their health!
NaturalNews on 10 February 2015 advises us as follows:
“The only problem with curcumin is that our liver, in an effort to prevent excessive drugs and supplements and such, inhibits most of the absorption of curcumin (a process called glucuronidation), which makes the compound much less effective than it could be. But there are ways to increase the body's ability to absorb curcumin.
Mix Turmeric With Black Pepper
Piperine is the alkaloid responsible for the pungency of black pepper. This compound inhibits certain enzyme metabolism functions, which normally cause the disposal of what the body considers to be excess curcumin (this effect is not limited to curcumin, black pepper can increase the absorption of other supplements, too). Curcumin absorption increases up to 2,000% or more with just a small amount of piperine.”
(Marilyn Vine) have been putting curcumin in our mashed potatoes and it is so
easy to add 1 or 2 drops of Piperine to this mix. I use Young Living’s Black Pepper Essential
Oil and you would not need more than 1 or 2 drops at the most. Click this link to learn more about their
Black Pepper and to purchase. This is really good turmeric information.
GreenMedia on 3 January 2015 brings turmeric information on why it may be the vegetarian’s best friend.
The turmeric information article goes on to say:
“In the National Institutes of Health funded study titled, "Curcumin boosts DHA in the brain: Implications for the prevention of anxiety disorders," researchers found that curcumin enhances the biosynthesis of the essential fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the rat brain. DHA deficiency is quite common and can have a wide range of adverse consequences to the optimal functioning of the brain. If this animal study's results are applicable to human physiology and metabolism, it may contribute significantly to validating the role of vegetarianism or a more plant-centric diet in human nutrition.
Curcumin has been the subject of over 7,000 published studies in the past 45 years, over 1500 of which can be found on the GreenMedInfo.com database showing its potential therapeutic value in over 600 health conditions, making it possibly the world's most important herbal compound.”

16 January 2014 brings a youtube on how Turmeric may assist with rheumatoid arthritis. Take the time to listen.
Dr Mercola on 13 October 2014 provides an article on turmeric information which shows its ability to boost regeneration of brains stem cells and more. Dr Mercola’s story at a glance:
“Curcumin, a bioactive ingredient in the curry spice turmeric, exhibits over 150 potentially therapeutic activities
Curcumin is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which is one reason why it holds promise as a neuroprotective agent
Recent animal research suggests another bioactive compound in turmeric called aromatic-turmerone can increase neural stem cell growth in the brain by as much as 80 percent at certain concentrations.”
Listen to Dr Mercola speak on this subject.

NaturalNews on 18 May 2014 brings the following information on 10 foods that may help you:
Inflammation is the body's natural way to fight infection and respond to harmful organisms, irritants, damaged tissue or toxic overload. However, this natural response to temporary problems should result in a system-wide "all clear" within a few days or weeks. If it doesn't, you could be suffering from chronic inflammation, which is far from natural or healthy. If you're having persistent trouble with swelling, redness, pain, fever, loss of appetite or general malaise, try alleviating your symptoms with these 10 foods that fight inflammation.
GreenMedia 3 May 2014 - Science Confirms Turmeric As Effective As 14 Drugs
GreenMedia on 25 April 2014 provides more information on this subject. The article goes on to say:
“It could be written off as an overly imaginative cultural oddity that ancient Indians understood turmeric to be the physical essence of the Divine Mother -- a botanical embodiment of compassion and healing. After all, nothing in the known biochemistry of this common spice plant lends itself to so gratuitous a characterization, does it?
It turns out that even modern science now confirm that this 'curry' spice has therapeutic properties relevant to well over 600 different health conditions, and may therefore bestow on those who take it significant protection from many common causes of human suffering. Some of the more amazing examples are its ability to reverse aspects of dementia (Alzheimer's disease), replace Prozac, prevent type 2 diabetes, produce cardiovascular benefits as significant as exercise, including preventing post-bypass heart attack by 56%, heal the diabetic liver, kill lethal pancreatic cancer, and help kick painkillers to the curb for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, while giving at least a dozen more pharmaceuticals a run for their money.
While these examples are not proof of 'divine' benevolence, they certainly raise some interesting questions, not the least of which is how any substance could be so well suited for improving human physical and mental health with such a depth and breadth of effectiveness.

An article published in Pharacognosy Magazine - Pharmacogn Mag. 2014 Jan-Mar; 10(37): 61–65. – the objective was to:
“To investigate the neuroprotective effects of Curcumin to mitigate the effect of the Fluoride induced neurotoxicity in mice brain using the histological and the biochemical parameters.”
There is much controversy with regards to the fluoridation of public water supplies with artificial fluoride compounds and some 23 studies now exist with regards to the harming of the IQ of our children. There is also information that fluoride calcifies the pineal gland and this is being implicated in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
A further article provides information on how Curcumin can help prevent fluoride damage through its antioxidant potency and protect against neurodegenerative diseases through its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Research shows that curcumin prevents the build-up of destructive amyloids in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients, and can also help dissolve existing plaque. Several studies demonstrate curcumin’s beneficial effect on treating Parkinson’s disease, partially due to its anti-inflammatory nature. In fact, curcumin has been shown to influence over 700 genes!
You could sprinkle turmeric on your food to provide some kick to the food but it would be well worth investing in a quality supplement specifically designed for your brain and containing curcuma longa.

GreenMedia on 29 January 2014 brings information on how turmeric extract strikes to the root cause of cancer malignancy. The article goes on to say:
“A new turmeric study published in Cancer Letters is paving the way for a revolution in the way that we both understand and treat cancer. Titled, "Targeting cancer stem cells by curcumin and clinical applications," U.S. researchers evaluated the primary polyphenol in the Indian spice known as curcumin for its ability to target cancer stem cells (CSCs), which are believed to be at the root cause of tumor formation and malignancy.
Whereas conventional models of cancer assumed that the majority of the cancer cells within a tumor possess self-renewal capacity to differing degrees, the CSC model proposes that, "[T]he initiation, maintenance, and growth of a tumor is driven by a minor population of cancer cells termed cancer stem cells (CSCs)," and that "These CSCs undergo continuous self-renewal and differentiate to heterogeneous cancer cells, yielding new tumors recapitulating the parental tumors, while the majority of cancer cells lack self-renewal capacity."
Prevent Disease on 2 November 2012 provides information on how this amazing spice may equal exercise in relation to heart health benefits. It also enumerates all the health benefits of turmeric and asks “who needs medication?”
The article goes on to say:
“Previous research has
shown that daily supplements of curcumin combined with diet and
exercise strategies could be associated with more than a 60% reduction in
triglyceride levels, a reduction known impossible through pharmaceutical
Powdered turmeric has been used for centuries to treat a host of illnesses. It inhibits inflammatory reactions, has anti-diabetic effects, reduces cholesterol among other powerful health effects. A recent study led by a research team in Munich showed that it can also inhibit formation of metastases.”
