Curcumin and Diabetes- Fight Diabetes Naturally
A scientific review on Curcumin and Diabetes was published in 2013 by Dong-wei Zhang from the Diabetes Research Center of Beijing University, China, in collaboration with Fraser Lab for Diabetes Research, McGill University Health Center, Montreal, Canada.
The authors of the review stated:
“… The active component of turmeric, curcumin, has caught attention as a potential treatment for diabetes and its complications primarily because it is a relatively safe and inexpensive drug that reduces glycemia and hyperlipidemia in rodent models of diabetes..”
The review discusses the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin and the applications of curcuminoid compounds for diabetes prevention and treatment.
Another interesting study from 2012 deals with diabetes prevention with curcumin. The research has shown that taking curcumin supplements may help delay or prevent the development of type 2 diabetes in people at high risk. The nine-month Thai study included 240 men and women, all of them diagnosed as pre-diabetic (based on abnormally high blood sugar levels).
The participants were divided into two groups and randomly assigned to take either 250 mg curcumin per day or a placebo. After nine months, 19 of the 116 participants in the placebo group had developed type 2 diabetes; none of those who took the curcumin developed the disease.
Our customers who were diagnosed as pre-diabetic and take Curcumall regularly, report that since they started intake of Curcumall their blood tests showed a significant improvement in blood sugar levels that they attribute to the Curcumall.
