All Round Wellness with Curcumin

I have heard a lot about the qualities of turmeric since I came to know it. Our ancestors have been using different types of herbs and spices for a long time, due to their benefits. Turmeric is one of them and it has been used to treat various illnesses in the Indian subcontinent from the ancient times and in modern natural medicine.

Turmeric is the dried rhizome powder of Curcuma longa, a perennial member of the Zingiberaceae (ginger) family cultivated in India and other parts of Southeast Asia.

The major chemical components of turmeric are curcuminoids which gives its unique aromatic and colouring  properties. The curcuminoids can be separated from turmeric by ethanol extraction and it usually contains 0.3–5.4% curcumin (one of the major curcuminoids) depending on the season of its harvest. Molecular formula of curcumin is C21H20O6, which is later identified as diferuloylmethane. The IUPAC name of Curcumin is 1, 7-bis (4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-phenyl) hepta-1, 6-diene-3, 5-Dione.

Among the several natural remedies studied so far, curcumin has interested researchers for its profound medicinal application. Curcumin has shown a great variety of biological functions, such as anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-cancer effects. Scientific research has confirmed the numerous pharmacological effects of curcumin and established its ability to act as a potential therapeutic agent against several chronic diseases.

Curcumin in inflammation and immunomodulation:

Curcumin has profound anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is the body’s immune system responding to irritants or threats. Curcumin inhibits many of the mediators of inflammation and help in combating discomfort associated with joint pain and arthritis. Sometimes excess inflammation also could lead to significant health concerns (eg cytokine storm). Curcumin is an immunomodulator and it helps in maintaining the balance between low and excessive inflammation in the body.

Curcumin as antioxidant:

Curcumin is also a recognized antioxidant. Free radical mediated peroxidation of membrane lipids and oxidative damage of DNA and proteins are believed to be associated with a variety of chronic pathological complications such as cancer, atherosclerosis, and neurodegenerative diseases. Curcumin is thought to play a crucial role against these pathological conditions by neutralizing the free radicals.

Curcumin in metabolic wellness:

Curcumin plays a role in metabolic wellness by helping stabilize

metabolism and managing weight. Obesity can direct to several health problems, for instance diabetes, blood pressure, cardiac disease, stroke, and others. Curcumin is helpful in reducing insulin resistance, growth of adipose tissues, hyperlipidemia.

Preventing blood thickening,  hypertension and regulating and regulating blood pressure is common use of curcumin. 

Curcumin as anti-infective: 

Numerous studies have shown that curcumin is active against different viruses, bacteria and fungi, including even highly pathogenic, emerging and multi-drug-resistant strains. The ability of Curcumin to inhibit the growth of test pathogen is an indication of its broad spectrum antimicrobial potential which may be employed in the management of microbial infections.

Curcumin in cancer:

Several studies showed that Curcumin has anti-tumour activity against different types of cancers like ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer etc. Curcumin has significant capacity to suppress cancer cell growth and proliferation in several different cancer cell lines, inducing apoptosis by inhibiting or down-regulating intracellular transcription factors.

Curcumin in AIDS:

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and its most advanced stage Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) causes destruction of the immune cells. Because of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial nature, curcumin can be used for the treatment of HIV-AIDS.

Curcumin in allergies & Asthma:

Allergies turn out when the immune system identifies a foreign substance as harmful and overreacts to it. During an allergic reaction, antibodies are produced in respond to these allergens, resulting in several symptoms (coughing, sneezing, runny nose, itching, etc). Curcumin is reported to have anti-allergic properties with inhibitory effect on histamine release from mast cells and decrease the chances of asthmatic attack.

In conclusion we can say that Curcumin is good for various indications and due to its wide spectrum of biological and pharmacological properties it is often called “cure-cumin.” It’s important to note; curcumin supplements are not a cure for diseases or chronic conditions. But, the unique medicinal properties of curcumin have shown important health benefits and uses in modern natural medicine.

Despite its countless beneficial properties, curcumin has a great limitation: it has a poor bioavailability because of its poor water solubility. Stabicon has overcome the challenges. The curcumin products formulated and manufactured at Stabicon are highly soluble in water, easy to use with different delicious flavors.
