The myriad of benefits that are associated with curcumin is becoming increasingly well known as well as studied. The past decade has seen a major increase in the interest in curcumin’s various medicinal properties. Much has been done to study spices such as turmeric and ginger and the various positive effects they have on the human body. Part of the reason why they are so alluring and compelling as medicinal aids are because they have long since been heralded throughout ancient history as potent cures to many ailments. While our predecessors were not right about much when it came to medicine, sometimes old wisdom is true—and that makes for a great story because it always inspires us to wonder: what else were they right about?

What is Turmeric?

Turmeric is used as a versatile spice in Indian cuisine.

Turmeric is a flowering plant whose roots are used in cooking. When you hear about turmeric, you’re almost always hearing about the root form of the plant which is the part that is consumed. It is a crucial ingredient in Asian cuisine and is what is responsible for that orange color you see often see in curry. It is associated with a great degree of health benefits ranging from aiding with gastrointestinal issues to downright reducing inflammation in the body. Headaches, bronchitis, fever, cancers, you name it. Turmeric has made the rounds in studies for the seemingly endless biological shifts it can cause in analysis.

What is Curcumin?

Curcumin is a compound that is found in turmeric. Ordinarily, curcumin is only present in turmeric by about 2-5%. Curcumin is thought to be behind many of the health benefits of turmeric. Much like Turmeric, curcumin signals many interesting medicinal uses on a cellular level that can be analyzed over the coming years. One of the most potent effects it is thought to have is reducing inflammation in the body.

For those who don’t know, inflammation is widely considered to be a root cause and major contributor to an exceedingly large amount of illnesses and diseases. Acute inflammation occurs if you injure yourself and the body needs to heal up a specific injury. Chronic inflammation is a low-grade inflammation that is pervasive throughout the entire body. It does not have any particular symptoms but it shows up in blood through particular markers. This low level of inflammation is thought to trigger a threat response by the immune system, but when the white blood cells circulate to find it, they don’t. And so eventually they can potentially start attacking your own body. This is seen and proven to be possible in auto-immune disorders.

The Benefits of Curcumin

  1. Curcumin Has Potent Anti-Bacterial Properties. Curcumin has been shown to have promising and powerful antibacterial effects that deliver a natural way to support the healing of wounds and injuries.
  2. Type 2 Diabetes Reduction. Curcumin has been studied in regards to type 2 diabetes and has been found to reduce the levels of blood sugars in the body. Turmeric has this benefit as well, but curcumin is noticeably better at blood sugar reduction.
  3. Curcumin May Reduce Osteoporosis Risk. A study was done where rats were supplemented with curcumin and it was found that the supplemented rats had retained more bone mass whereas those who received lower amounts of curcuminoids did not preserve nearly as much if any at all bone mass.

Curcumin Is Highly Beneficial To Your Health

Curcumin is a chemical which is the active component of turmeric and is also the primary curcuminoid of turmeric. it provides compounds that are pivotal to a myriad of functions in the body including but not limited to a whole host of brain functions, your nervous system, aiding with the supplemental treatment of specific cancer malignancies, gastrointestinal disorders, depression and the list goes on.

Neurotrophic Factors and Your Brain

Neurotrophic factors are an assortment of biomolecules that almost all small proteins or peptides. These proteins and peptides support the growth of neurons in the brain. Tyrosine kinase is the enzyme by which the NTF’s can confer their growth factors onto neurons.

There are a couple of different neurotrophic factors but the one that is relevant to curcumin is a brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). BDNF is a protein that is part of the neurotrophin family of growth factors. Its principal function is to act on particular neurons in your CNS and PNS (central nervous system, peripheral nervous system). BDNF encourages the growth of neurons that are developed or in development; they also help existing neurons survive and contribute directly to the differentiation of new neurons. Differentiation is the process by which neurons are converted from one type to another.

BDNF is incredibly vital towards the maintenance and improvement of long-term memory. Advancements in our understanding of how the brain works have led to the increased emphasis and dissemination of information regarding neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity—simply put, is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself and/or create new neural connections in response to circumstances in life.

This is incredibly important towards the understanding of BDNF because it “stands out for its high level of expression in the brain and its potent effects on synapses”. The study goes on to explain that the pronounced positive effects on synaptic plasticity are crucial for hippocampal long-term potentiation—which is just a fancy way to say BDNF is an important factor in facilitating long-term memory. Ultimately, the most promising of leads that studying BDNF provides scientists is that the deficiency of BDNF potentially contributes to a whole host of brain-related illnesses.

Curcumin and BDNF

Guess what greatly stimulates and promotes the activity of BDNF? You guessed it, curcumin. It’s been established that BDNF has a tremendous impact on brain function and by extension of that, the quantity of BDNF impacting the development of brain-related illnesses and ailments. This published study details how rats were put on a CUS protocol (chronic unpredictable stress) to induce depression in the rats. It was then demonstrated that the effects of curcumin had impacted the CUS induced behaviors and markers in a positive way. CUS had caused a reduction in BDNF levels in the hippocampus. The supplementation of curcumin in the rats had effectively reversed much of these negative markers such as impaired learning and memory function as well as depression.

“What benefits can pharmaceutical grade curcumin provide?”

Turmeric is a well-known culinary spice, but it also has profound medicinal properties that are just now being realized and utilized in the Western world. In contrast, people in India have been using turmeric for centuries to help treat laryngitis, bronchitis and diabetes. Turmeric, which is derived from the plant Curcuma Longa, includes the active ingredient, curcumin. Curcumin accounts for approximately two to six percent of the spice and has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Curcumin as an Anti-Inflammatory

Curcumin provides strong natural pain relief.

Anti-inflammatory products and medications are important in the Western world because chronic inflammation plays a role in almost every major Western disease, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Muscle Wasting

Acute inflammation can be a normal physiological process (especially if you exercise) and can be a natural part of living a healthy life and repairing the bodily damage. However, inflammation can become a major problem if it becomes chronic and untreated.

Curcumin fights this problem by targeting multiple areas of the inflammation process. Curcumin blocks NF-kB, a molecule that is responsible for the inflammation of many cells and subsequently, plays a role in many chronic diseases.
