Turmeric is an ancient Ayurveda medicine that has been used for centuries throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia. It is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds there is, and now it has been found that it can help with cancer as well.
Cancer is a disastrous disease that is wreaking havoc on the nations, but what if I told you that the effects did not have to be disastrous? Turmeric could be the answer to your problems!
Turmeric is a spice that is often used as a food flavoring in Asian dishes. It belongs to the same family as ginger root, and it has so many health benefits it will make your head spin when you dive into the research.
A clinical trial tested on 25 different patients with pre-cancerous changes in their organs showed that the curcumin could stop the precancerous changes from becoming cancer! Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help to protect the body’s cells from damage caused by molecules known as free radicals. Many Studies have shown that the curcumin interferes with several important molecular pathways involved in cancer development, growth, and spread. Researchers have reported turmeric to inhibit the formation of cancer-causing enzymes.
“In learning the molecular biology of cancer pathways, and in learning that what the evidence actually shows the effect of natural product extracts on various relevant molecular targets in various cancers, we see that there’s actually quite a large amount of evidence that supports using various molecules, natural products, and pharmaceuticals that are already approved and that have been around for a long time to affect anti-cancer activity along that pathway at that target. That’s called molecularly targeted anti-cancer treatment, and it’s widely practiced in oncology today.What’s not widely practiced is the use of the natural products for the molecularly targeted anti-cancer activity. I provide that for my patients because the evidence base suggests and supports the use of these treatment recommendations.”
