Experts Investigate the Benefits of Using Turmeric for Liver Detox

Orlando, FL - (SBWIRE)-08/18/2015 

An increasing number of people are becoming more and more health conscious nowadays. There are those who follow certain dietary regimens while others perform processes, such as liver detox, that can help eliminate toxins in the body. 

Experts investigate the benefits of using turmeric for liver detox. A detoxification process is believed to be one of the best ways to help the liver and free it from toxins that the human body is exposed to every day. These toxins include additives, pesticides, heavy metals and a wide range of chemicals present in food and the environment. The liver works by expelling the toxins from the bloodstream. However, when there is an overload of these harmful substances, that is the time when the liver needs some help. 

"Turmeric is a widely used spice in India, as a kitchen ingredient and a traditional medicine. It adds flavor and color to dishes, and is believed to offer various health benefits," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, curcumin, which is a key ingredient of turmeric, has the potential to stimulate bile production by the gallbladder. Curcumin is the phytochemical component that gives turmeric its bright, deep yellow-orange color. Bile is used by the liver to get rid of toxins, and it also works by rejuvenating liver cells, which break down harmful compounds. Turmeric has long been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for digestion and liver disorders.

Turmeric is widely available nowadays in the form of curcumin supplements. Many people, especially those who are suffering from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, believe that the natural alternative has helped them regain their mobility and experience pain reduction.

The National Taiwan University Hospital conducted preliminary studies that revealed curcumin was helpful for individuals who suffered from chronic pancreatitis, inflammatory eye and bowel diseases, psoriasis, hyperlipidemia and rheumatoid arthritis. Curcumin has been widely studied due to the anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties it displays.

According to Dr. Gregory Cole, medicine and neurology professor at the University of California at Los Angeles, curcumin has provided some medically promising results, and this is due to the fact that oxidative damage and inflammation widely contribute to many of today's prevalent diseases.
