Information site about curcuma or turmeric
Turmeric comes from the curcuma longa genus and belongs to the same family as ginger. It grows perennially especially in tropical regions such as Southern Asia. This plant reaches 5-6 feet in height and has trumpet-shaped flowers that are dull yellow. The roots have bulbs from which grow rhizomes. These rhizomes then produce the roots and stems of new plants. The roots and bulbs are often boiled and dried before being ground in turmeric powder. Turmeric has a sharp and bitter taste and is mostly known as a spice that is often added to flavour Indian curries.
First – of course – the fact that there is scientific research to support the notion that turmeric may be beneficial for staggering 600+ conditions. It is one of the world’s most studied items for medicinal potential, with over 4000 scientific studies being recorded overall. Then there is the fact that the mighty turmeric has been in use for over 6000 years, with an incredible safety record. Many people have long been aware of the vast array of health benefits conferred by the curry spice turmeric, which is the source of cur cumin. Scientific researchers around the world are investigating applications for curcuma that include fighting cancer, arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and reversing the pathological processes underlying Alzheimer’s disease, among other conditions. One of the problems is that Cur cumin has long been known to have poor bioavailability, requiring high doses to achieve desired blood levels. Some can be overcome by adding black pepper to improve uptake. Another is that during drying and processing a number of substances do get lost. In the case of oral use not that bad but for use in skin treatment might.
Despite its impressive array of benefits, the effectiveness of oral supplementation with curcuma has been limited by poor absorption into the bloodstream through the digestive tract. In the past, a few formulators worked around this problem by adding a derivative of black pepper, peperone, which enhanced the absorption of ingredients such as curcumin.20 Scientists have long sought a more bioavailable form of cur cumin to provide even greater pharmaceutical potencies to maximize cur cumin's efficacy.
One of the challenges of the work against cancer is that there are so many factors which may influence it, that it becomes difficult to pin down both actual causes and beneficial agents in real life. Although traditional herbal medicines, phytomedicines, medicinal foods, and complementary or alternative medicines have been increasingly used over the past decade in European and North American countries, they seem to have not generated interest or been accepted by mainstream medicine practitioners in western countries, especially in standard care for cancer patients. The key issue considered by many biomedical scientists has been the lack of evidence-based information/guidelines for routine and regulatory application of herbal medicines as "drugs" for use in public health. Therefore one large-scale "big data" type research, which might more easily detect correlations between lifestyle, dietary and supplement factors with incidence of cancer.
But in recent years, also western medicine has started to pay greater attention to this extraordinary spice and healing food that has been used in traditional Asian medicine to treat a vast range of conditions and diseases. Modern research shows that turmeric possesses a wide range of anti-cancer properties that may make it effective against many types of cancer. Turmeric has been found to contain a compound that can identify potential cancer cells by their abnormal chemistry and consequently induce self-destruction of these harmful cells (process known as "apoptosis") - without damaging healthy cells. Furthermore, turmeric contains strong antioxidant compounds and may prevent nitrosamine formation and inhibit aflatoxins production - two processes that have been associated with an increased risk of cancer.
A wealth of data shows that curcuma and its related chemicals (collectively known as curcuminoids) help to prevent and fight a wide range of diseases—from cancer to cardiovascular disease—through a variety of mechanisms.1,5,7-19 These include powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, chemo preventive (cancer-preventive), and antineoplastic (cancer-fighting) properties.
Perhaps one of cur cumin's most important activities in the human body is its ability to inhibit activation of the transcription factor, nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB),4-6 a potent inducer of chronic inflammation. NF-kB is a protein that acts as a sort of switch, turning on inflammation by activating genes involved in the production of inflammatory compounds. As NF-kB activation has been implicated in all the stages of carcinogenesis, this transcription factor is a potential target in cancer chemoprevention and is the subject of intensive research.
To start with patients and patient-to-be with lifestyle-related syndromes, the government and the hospitals, now suffering from heavier burden of medical costs and nursing staff for the above patients, respectively.
For this purpose, a medicinal plant library and a unique platform for drug screening, with proprietary screening methods for differential molecular targets to be created out of public funds and donations, to create theoretically and or discover therapeutics with a minimum side effect for use. It would not be realistic to leave it to the pharmaceutical industry because of show lack of interest in the past and because of conflict of interest. Nature based substance do cost only a small amount in general compared with the cost of engineered drugs
