Orlando, FL— April 02, 2016 — A heart healthy diet is one of the dietary regimens that many people are following nowadays. This is due to the increasing prevalence of heart-related conditions that widely contribute to the escalating mortality rate around the globe. The good news is that there are natural ingredients such as turmeric that can be incorporated in a heart-healthy diet.
Turmeric has the potential to reduce cardiac hypertrophy. This is has long been used as a natural remedy for a myriad of conditions. As a matter of fact, in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, it is considered to be one of the most popular medicinal spices that have been used for thousands of years.
“The powerful therapeutic properties of turmeric are thought to come from its phytochemical called curcumin,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
Curcumin is a powerful healing polyphenol that contains various medicinal substances, including antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is widely available nowadays through supplementation.
According to the University of Toronto researchers, curcumin could block a variety of biochemical reactions. These biochemical reactions are associated with the development of fibrosis and inflammation as well as the enlargement of the heart chambers or cardiac hypertrophy.
There have been quite a number of studies about the ability of curcumin to help improve heart health. This has led many individuals who follow a heart-healthy diet to incorporate the spice turmeric in preparing their dishes and beverages.
Another study was conducted, and at this time, by the researchers from the Japan’s Kyoto Medical Center. According to the researchers, curcumin could aid in the maintenance of a healthy blood pressure as well as in the prevention of cardiac hypertrophy.
“This powerful therapeutic ingredient is also found to reduce excessive platelet aggregation, which is usually found in sticky, clot-forming blood,” added O’Sullivan.
Inflammation has always been thought to be one of the major contributory factors in the development of certain heart conditions. The anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin are believed to be responsible for its therapeutic benefits to the heart.
Researchers state that curcumin has the potential ability to regulate the production of NF-kappa B, which is a protein complex associated with the human body’s inflammatory reactions. The increase of NF-kappa B production is linked with the risk of cancer and inflammatory diseases.
Turmeric powder can be added to dishes and beverages to obtain the therapeutic benefits of the spice. There are also curcumin supplements available for individuals who want to have a convenient and easy intake of the healing ingredients.
The most recommended curcumin supplements are those that contain a black pepper extract called BioPerine, which enhances curcumin absorption inside the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
