Curcumin prevents atherosclerosis
Curcumin protects the circulatory system in many directions, acting directly on the cause of the formation of systemic disorders. Antioxidative activity manifests itself through the ability to neutralize free oxygen radicals and peroxides, inhibiting lipid peroxidation and low density lipoprotein (LDL), thus preventing the formation of atherosclerotic lesions. In addition, it improves the production of PGI2 prostacyclin, which inhibits platelet aggregation, has a relaxant effect on blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. This unusual compound counteracts myocardial ischemia and reduces the effects of the post-infarction, reducing the activity of xanthine oxidase and myeloperoxidase, generating free radicals and lipid peroxidation. At the same time, it increases the activity of antioxidant enzymes, i.e. SOD (superoxide dismutase), GPx (glutathione peroxidase containing selenocysteine), glutathione S-transferase and catalase.
Curcumin against cancer

The research suggests that it may be useful in the prevention and treatment of many types of cancers: skin, lung, esophageal, oral, head and neck cancer, stomach, pancreas, small intestine, liver, colon, bladder, prostate, cervix , breast and lymphoma. Extensive scientific research has shown that curcumin clearly slows down or completely inhibits the growth of cancer cells. What's more, it improves the effectiveness of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and allows the use of smaller doses in these therapies. Its action is particularly strong in combination with other antioxidants, such as quercetin.
Turmeric stimulates the secretion of bile, facilitates its flow through the bile ducts, stimulates the secretion of gastrin, secretin and pancreatic enzymes, acts as a relaxant, antibacterial and mildly anti-inflammatory. It works perfectly against Helicobacter Pylori responsible for the formation of stomach ulcers. It counteracts flatulence, constipation, fullness, digestive disorders, cholecystitis, cholangitis and cholelithiasis.
