Can turmeric reverse type 1 diabetes?

Turmeric is one of the most potent healing spices in the world. It is one the most researched plants in the world. There are so many reasons to eat turmeric. The medicinal properties of turmeric have been the subject of over 6000 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies.

Previous research has shown that turmeric may have potent health effects against type 2 diabetes. But could there be more to turmeric’s benefits? Can turmeric reverse type 1 diabetes?

The study found that diabetic rats who received curcumin for 40 days showed an improvement in blood sugar levels and insulin. The improvement began after 4 months, and continued to improve at the 10 month mark when all levels almost normalized, and regeneration of the pancreas was observed.

The researchers concluded that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, [pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”#228B22″ class=”” size=”17″]“… [curcumin] possesses antidiabetic actions and enhanced pancreatic islets regeneration.”[/pullquote]
Health experts are excited about the new research on curcumin, especially considering the alternative of pancreas transplant.

Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo writes:

Given that organ transplantation (pancreatic islet transplants) is exceedingly expensive and prohibitive due to a lack of donor material and the potential for rejection by the host, the notion that a safe, affordable, and non-prescription spice extract like curcumin may have significant therapeutic value and may even regenerate damaged pancreatic tissue, is truly exciting.”

In 2012, a study from American Diabetes Association’s journal Diabetes Care, turmeric extract was 100 percent effective in preventing the progression from pre-diabetes to type 2 diabetes.

The great thing about turmeric is that it has many side benefits, such as brain health, cancer fighter, and inflammation reducer. The potent spice also has very minimal side effects when compared to pharmaceutical drugs.
