According to a clinical trial by the American Diabetes Association Journal, supplements containing curcumin may help prevent diabetes in people at high risk. Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties fight inflammation and oxidative damage to the body cells; these two processes feed a range of diseases, including type 2 diabetes. As per some researchers, a daily dose of curcumin over a period of nine months seemed to prevent new cases of diabetes among people with so-called prediabetes – abnormally high blood sugar levels that may progress to full-blown, type 2 diabetes.
All of the subjects were diagnosed with prediabetes. However, none of the subjects treated with curcumin developed full-blown type 2 diabetes. In fact, curcumin even seemed to help improve the function of the beta-cells, which are the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin.
Curcumin is a safe and effective way to bring blood sugar levels under control. A healthy diet and lifestyle, however, can dramatically decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes. One study found that the risk for type 2 diabetes could be reduced by 58% in those under 60 years of age and by 71% in those over 60 with daily moderate exercise and by losing 5-7% body weight for those who are overweight.
Diabetes control is just one of the several benefits that curcumin offers. This single ingredient is also capable of treating heart disease, cancer, depression, joint pain, Alzheimer’s and many other debilitating disorders.
