Could turmeric be a cure for 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.

According to the latest statistics from the American Diabetes Association, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population have diabetes. With this disease, blood sugar levels rise higher than normal.

Previous research from Mashhad University of Medical Sciences has shown that turmeric can lower inflammation and helps regulate blood sugar. Could turmeric be a cure for diabetes?

There is no shortage of research on natural solutions to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, but with the mainstream media’s primary funding coming from Big Pharma, the storylines either completely ignore or are pitted against the natural solutions we regularly report on,” says Sayer Ji, health expert and founder of GreenMedInfo.

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.

New research from Professor Manohar Gang from the University of Newcastle’s Nutraceuticals Research Group shows that the anti-diabetic properties of turmeric are linked to its anti-inflammatory properties.

The root cause of type 2 diabetes is systemic inflammation, which impacts insulin secretion and function,” Professor Garg explains. “We want to nip the inflammation in the bud.”

Professor Gang is conducting a randomized, controlled trial that will observe the anti-diabetic effects of turmeric and omega-3 fatty acids:

The anti-inflammatory mechanisms surrounding curcumin and omega-3 fats are different, so we want to test if they complement each other and have treatment synergies beyond their individual effects,” Professor Garg added. “Our thinking is that the combination is safe, free of any side- effects and may prove to be as effective as drugs used for management of diabetes.”
