Curcumin's never-ending health benefits now include immunity

New research shows joint health and inflammation ingredient curcumin may help boost immunity, too.

Curcumin, the active compound in the curry spice turmeric, is already a hot antioxidant ingredient—a research-backed star player in supplement formulations for chronic inflammation, pain and joint health. And now a new study says it may play a role in supporting the immune system.

Like vitamin D—but to a more modest extent—curcumin can raise levels of a protein that’s key to preventing infection, according to researchers at the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University and at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. The protein, cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide, or CAMP, contributes to fighting off unfamiliar bacteria, viruses or fungi.

Will eating Indian curry help? Perhaps, especially if you eat it regularly, reseachers said: “It’s possible that sustained consumption over time may be healthy and protect against infection. It’s a great thing when a safe, natural, especially in the stomach and intestinal tract.” 

It’s good news when an herb or spice or food we can easily include in a healthy (and delicious) diet proves to have even more benefits than we realized. It’s also a great bonus if you’re already taking curcumin-based supplements for inflammation. Stay tuned for news of more gifts from Mother Nature!

I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.
