Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a spice rich in non-flavonoid polyphenols and curcuminoids, contained in curcumin. Native to Asia, "Curcuma longa" now grows in many tropical and subtropical regions and is used as a remedy in Ayurvedic medicine mainly because of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties.
Curcumin stimulates the flow of bile and is traditionally used to combat disorders of fat digestion and liver metabolism. In addition, its strong detoxifying and anti-inflammatory effects have been proven. In recent years, this plant has become a major focus of oncological research, with numerous studies demonstrating its anti-cancer properties.
In India, turmeric has always been a part of the diet, and many experts attribute the fact that the incidence of breast, prostate, colon, and lung cancer is ten times lower in India than in the United States to curcumin. Curcumin is recommended as a therapeutic adjunct by both the German Society of Oncology and the American Society of Oncology.
In a study conducted on at-risk patients with precancerous lesions, it was found that taking 1 to 8 grams of curcumin per day for 3 months resulted in regression of the lesions.
Another study on intestinal polyps showed that 1.5 g of curcumin per day, associated with 20 mg of quercetin, reduced the size and number of intestinal polyps in patients with familial polyposis.
Why use curcumin in infusions?
Studies have highlighted the low bioavailability of curcumin if administered orally: it is little absorbed by the intestines and rapidly eliminated by the liver. Therefore, infusion is used to obtain a sufficient intra-tumor concentration.
Turmeric has also been shown to improve the efficacy of chemotherapy, particularly those based on methotrexate, taxanes, gemcitabine, and platinum.
It acts against cancer by different mechanisms: it stimulates the immune system and, as a transcription factor, inhibits the development and spread of metastasis (proliferation) at the genetic level. Curcumin activates the genes responsible for apoptosis (cell death) and has anti-angiogenic effects, thus preventing the development of blood vessels in tumor tissue.
A study published in the scientific journal Cancer Prevention Research in 2008 found that it inhibited the motility of breast cancer cells and thus their proliferation.
Two studies on the effect of curcumin on pancreatic and lung cancer, conducted in 2009 and published in the scientific journal Molecular Pharmacology, observed that curcumin inhibits the growth of pancreatic and lung cancer cells.
Curcumin is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, it is proven in the treatment of polyarthritis, and several other diseases with local or systemic inflammation.
Reduces blood glucose levels
Studies conducted in the 1970s demonstrated the impact of curcumin on reducing blood sugar levels. Furthermore, curcumin is 400 times more potent than the drugs traditionally used to lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
Action on weight loss
Curcumin is interesting for overweight people because it promotes the burning of fat. It is therefore of particular interest to people wishing to lose weight.
