The Benefits of Taking Curcumin (Turmeric) Daily
The benefits of taking
daily, the active component of the spice turmeric, may be many or none,
depending on the supplement. Many of the curcumin benefits have to do with
the prevention of chronic and life threatening diseases that are often
related to aging.
But, in order to provide this preventative benefit, it must be able to get
to your bloodstream. Researchers have found that eating turmeric or taking
a supplement by mouth does not significantly increase curcumin levels in
the blood. Digestive acids have a damaging effect that basically renders it
useless for anything other than stomach complaints.
After scientists had done some of the research concerning the curcumin
benefits as anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant agents, they
looked at how well the compound is absorbed into the bloodstream. The
measured blood serum levels after volunteers had taken very large amounts,
up to 10 grams, and found that concentration was very low. This is seen
with other nutrients, as well. A standardized extract is necessary and
preferred for efficacy.
The curcumin benefits that you will see listed on a standard supplement are
based on laboratory studies using cell cultures and animal models. In order
to provide the benefit, the nutrient must be able to interact directly with
the cells. This will only happen if it is absorbed into the bloodstream.
The same is true of resveratrol and other anti-cancer nutrients.
Assuming that the supplement is properly designed, the benefits of taking
daily may include lower cholesterol, a healthier circulatory system and
improved mental clarity. It may be beneficial for relieving stress,
depression and anxiety, as it has been shown to increase concentrations of
one of the brain's proteins. Called BDNF, low levels of this protein are
associated with those conditions, as well as decreased mental clarity.
One of the benefits of taking curcumin daily, along with vitamins,
minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and other anti-aging nutrients is
increased energy levels, reduced risk of nutritional deficiency and
improved appearance of the skin and hair. Unlike the long-term curcumin
benefits, these are things that you can see almost immediately, if you
begin taking an excellent multi-nutritional supplement.
If you have ever tried a supplement and found that it was ineffective, it
was likely due to the manufacturer's lack of knowledge about the right form
to use or the proper delivery method.
Curcumin alone has been subject to more than 1,000 studies in 2014, the
subject of a remarkable amount of research interest that may be
unprecedented. Based on a statistical analysis of over three million
published scientific studies, curcumin is the most frequently mentioned
phytonutrient, followed by resveratrol (found in red grapes and
watermelon), flavonoids (a class of phytochemicals), quercetin (found in
onions) and genistein, commonly found in soy.
