World of Turmeric

Autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases affect over 50 million Americans. Both of these disorders share common characteristics such as frequent episodes of inflammation followed by symptoms that may include rash, fever, joint pain, and joint swelling. These symptoms result when the body attacks its own tissue due to dysregulation of the innate immune system causing increased inflammation throughout the body. Over the past decade, numerous research articles have shows the benefit of complementary medicine and nutrition in the treatment of chronic inflammation.

Despite evidenced based clinical research that supports the use of alternative medicine, many insurance companies and medical providers choose not to advocate for the use of these supplements. This paper reviewed the ongoing proposed benefits of Liquid Turmeric, a spice from the root Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family as an anti-inflammatory agent.

In-vitro and in-vivo research show various activities, such as anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antifungal, cytokines release, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, enhancing of the apoptotic process, and antiangiogenic properties of Turmeric. Challenges of treating and managing chronic inflammatory disease, and alternative treatment options were also highlighted.
