Detoxification with Curcumin
Curcumin has been shown to be a natural liver detoxifier.*
- Support healthy liver function
- Flush toxins from the body
- Prompt cellular regeneration
- Protection from heavy metal toxins
- Aid in gallbladder health
In a recent rat study conducted to evaluate the effects of turmeric on the liver’s ability to detoxify xenobiotic (toxic) chemicals, levels of two very important liver detoxification enzymes were significantly elevated in rats fed on turmeric as compared to controls. The researchers commented, “The results suggest that turmeric may increase detoxification systems in addition to its anti-oxidant properties…Turmeric used widely as a spice would probably mitigate the effects of several dietary carcinogens.”
Curcumin has long been connected to liver health. Numerous studies have linked it to effectively combating liver cancer and improving liver fibroids. What’s more, turmeric can uniquely assist the enzymes that are responsible for flushing out known dietary carcinogens. The result is enhanced protection against liver damage, and even regeneration of affected liver cells.
Turmeric is also notably responsible for improving the health of the gallbladder. Severe diabetics often suffer liver damage and disease as they progress. But, research indicates turmeric may be able to help. “Fascinatingly, liver microvasculature in curcumin treated group developed into regenerate and repair into healthy and normal characteristics.” They concluded: “These results optimistically demonstrated the potential use of curcumin as a novel therapeutic agent in liver pathology of diabetic rats.”
Curcumin has been has been also examined in several metal toxicity studies and was found to have a therapeutic protective effect in preventing metal toxification (pre-treatment) and had further detox effect in post treatment after intoxication. In case of mercury toxification, curcumin treatment was also effective in reversing serum changes.
Tip: For protective effect, drink 1-2 teaspoons of Curcumall® mixed in a glass of water.
