Curcumin is the active component of turmeric. It works as an anti-inflammatory to prevent cancerous cells from growing.
- It inhibits or blocks the COX-2 and NF-Kappa B inflammatory pathways which stops chronic inflammation.
- It fights free radicals through its antioxidant properties, in doing this it reduces the arachidonic acid, called the mother of inflammation.
- It regulates the body's production of cytokines, proteins that serve as molecular messengers between cells. Reducing cytokines will reduce inflammation.
- It stops or reduces the production of an enzyme called protein kinases, slowing or stopping the production of this protein will reduce inflammation.
There is plenty of research showing curcumin's ability to stop chronic inflammation that have been linked to the aging process.
Remember, chronic inflammation = high risk of cancer rate.
If you are not currently taking curcumin, consider adding it to your daily vitamin regiment.
