There’s no doubt that cancer nowadays is the most world-wide spread disease. However, with the help of some alternative solutions, like using turmeric there are chances that its effects don’t have to be so destructive!
Turmeric belongs to the same family as the ginger root and it’s mostly used in Asian dishes for giving special flavor to the food. If you do a little research on the internet, you will find out that this spice has abundance of health benefits.
25 different patients undergoing pre-cancerous changes in their organs were put to a clinical trial that showed that an active ingredient in turmeric, also known as curcumin, has the abilities to prevent pre-cancerous changes to become cancer.
This ingredient acts as a powerful antioxidant which helps the protection of the body’s cells from molecules known as free radicals that can damage the cells.
The obtained results from various studies have shown that the curcumin obstructs several significant molecular pathways that cause the development of cancer, its enlargement and spreading.
Turmeric is thought to inhibit the formation of cancer-causing enzymes ,as researchers report.
“In learning the molecular biology of cancer pathways, and in learning that what the evidence actually shows the effect of natural product extracts on various relevant molecular targets in various cancers, we see that there’s actually quite a large amount of evidence that supports using various molecules, natural products, and pharmaceuticals that are already approved and that have been around for a long time to affect anti-cancer activity along that pathway at that target. That’s called molecularly targeted anti-cancer treatment, and it’s widely practiced in oncology today.What’s not widely practiced is the use of the natural products for the molecularly targeted anti-cancer activity. I provide that for my patients because the evidence base suggests and supports the use of these treatment recommendations.”
