Healing Herb: Turmeric And Its Benefits
Health & Fitness
This spice gives curry powder its yellow hue, is used in Indian medicine to stimulate the appetite and as a digestive aid. But lately it's getting attention as a potentially powerful cancer fighter. The chemical responsible for turmeric's golden color, called curcumin, is considered a top anticancer agent, helping to quell the inflammation that contributes to tumor growth and working in much the same way as broccoli and cauliflower to clear carcinogens away before they can damage cellular DNA and to repair already damaged DNA.
Lab studies show turmeric helps stop the growth and spread of cancer cells that do form.
Research suggests that it may protect against colon cancer as well as melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Researchers are investigating a combination of curcumin and phenethyl isothiocyanate (the anticancer compound in cruciferous vegetables) as a possible treatment for prostate cancer.
Studies have also linked turmeric to reduced inflammation in a number of conditions, including psoriasis.
