curcumin is a powerful antiinflammatory that improves several mediators of inflammation

Curcumin is one of the most important natural anti-inflammatories. But does it really work, and what is it doing in your body?

It really does works. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis included 32 controlled studies that looked at curcumin’s effect on mediators of inflammation. Its effect was consistent and broad. Curcumin reduced several important anti-inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein, interleukin-6 and tumour necrosis factor α. It also increased the anti-inflammatory interleukin-10.

These results prove, once again, the valuable and powerful anti-inflammatory powers of curcumin.
