Studies have already shown how the curcumin in turmeric can inhibit the compounds involved in the inflammatory response. Consequently, practitioners often combine turmeric with Glucosamine Sulphate
to combat joint problems such as stiffness and Bromelain
for sprain and strain injuries. Also turmeric is increasingly being added to formulations for back problems. However, almost all of these formulas provide only token levels of this spice.
Positive results have also been shown by researchers using as little as 2-3 grams of turmeric extract daily to prevent the frequent/looser motions and flatulence-type symptoms of irritable bowel. In a relatively short time, some long standing sufferers experienced positive effects.
The key active constituent in turmeric, curcumin, is found within the root of the plant, and it is this part which is responsible for its bright yellow colour.
