Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily  curcumin) have been the subject of over  5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies. In fact, our five-year long research project on this  sacred plant  has revealed over 600 potential preventive and therapeutic applications, as well as 175 distinct beneficial physiological effects. This entire database of 1,585 ncbi-hyperlinked turmeric abstracts can be downloaded as a PDF at our  Downloadable Turmeric Document  page, and acquired either as a retail item or with 200 GMI-tokens, for those of you who are already are members and  receive them automatically each month.

Given the sheer density of research performed on this remarkable spice, it is no wonder that a growing number of studies have concluded that it compares favorably to a variety of conventional medications, including:

  • Lipitor/Atorvastatin (cholesterol medication): A 2008 study published in the journal  Drugs in R & D  found that a standardized preparation of curcuminoids from Turmeric compared favorably to the drug atorvastatin (trade name Lipitor) on endothelial dysfunction, the underlying pathology of the blood vessels that drives atherosclerosis, in association with reductions in inflammation and oxidative stress in type 2 diabetic patients.  [i] [For addition  curcumin and ‘high cholesterol’ research  – 8 abstracts]
  • Corticosteroids (steroid medications):  A 1999 study published in the  journal Phytotherapy Research  found that the primary polyphenol in turmeric, the saffron colored pigment known as curcumin, compared favorably to steroids in the management of chronic anterior uveitis, an inflammatory eye disease.[ii] A 2008 study published in  Critical Care Medicine  found that curcumin compared favorably to the corticosteroid drug dexamethasone in the animal model as an alternative therapy for protecting lung transplantation-associated injury by down-regulating inflammatory genes.[iii]  An earlier 2003 study published in  Cancer Letters  found the same drug also compared favorably to dexamethasone in a lung ischaemia-repurfusion injury model.[iv]    [for additional  curcumin and inflammation  research – 52 abstracts]
  • Prozac/Fluoxetine & Imipramine  (antidepressants):  A 2011 study published in the journalActa Poloniae Pharmaceutica  found that curcumin compared favorably to both drugs in reducing depressive behavior in an animal model.[v]  [for additional  curcumin and depression  research – 5 abstracts]
  • Aspirin (blood thinner):  A 1986 in vitro and ex vivo study published in the journalArzneimittelforschung  found that curcumin has anti-platelet and prostacyclin modulating effects compared to aspirin, indicating it may have value in READ MORE: http://wakeup-world.com/2013/05/26/science-confirms-turmeric-as-effective-as-14-drugs/
