Reducing Inflammatory Pain with Turmeric Extract
Almost all curries contain turmeric, a type of ginger generally available as an orange-yellow powder obtained by grinding the boiled and dried rhizomes (underground stems). Many also use it as a 'poor man's' saffron because it imparts a lovely yellow color to boiled rice. Among the many health benefits of turmeric extract is its anti-inflammatory nature that helps reduce the redness, swelling and pain associated with a number of common conditions.
Inflammation is your body's way of dealing with bacteria and viruses, and also tissue damage such as wounds and damage to the bones, cartilage and ligaments of your joints. The inflammatory response of your immune system dilates small blood vessels to allow the large macrophages, or white blood cells, to get to the source of the problem. This causes swelling, while another part of your inflammatory system raises the temperature of the tissues around the site in order to render it unattractive to germs.
The trouble with your immune system is that it doesn't know when to stop, and it continues longer than needed, leading to hot, inflamed swellings that can cause a great deal of pain and a reduction in the ability of a wound to heal. Turmeric extract helps to prevent this over-activity, acting as an anti-inflammatory enabling the swelling to drop, the temperature to revert to normal and healing to occur with a reduction of pain.
Turmeric Extract as an Antioxidant
Turmeric extract helps you to avoid many health conditions causes by oxidative stress to your bodily tissues and also to treat those conditions you already have. Among such conditions is atherosclerosis, caused by oxidation of LDL cholesterol by the small highly-reactive oxygenated molecules commonly known as free radicals. This form of oxidation causes the cholesterol to form deposits inside your arteries that can eventually block them or enable them to be easily blocked by otherwise harmless small blood clots. The potential result is heart failure and strokes.
Curcumin, which is the main active component of turmeric extract, is currently under investigation for its beneficial effect on Alzheimer's disease, cancers and cataracts. Its effect on cancer is particularly interesting to the medical profession because regular anti-cancer drugs weaken the immune system leading to a number of undesirable side effects. Turmeric, on the other hand, strengthens the immune system, and so appears to be the better option. Current indications are that turmeric extract kills off malignant tumor cells, including those of the stomach, colon, duodenum and skin.
Although more investigative work and trials are needed with respect to these important potential properties, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric extract render it an excellent maintenance supplement that can be taken to help you maintain good health, with the added benefit of all these special properties that may one day be proved beyond argument.
