Reduce The Effects Of Inflammatory Bowel Disease
It has been proven through experimentation that turmeric can reduce the effects of several forms of inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
An experiment that was conducted involved two groups of mice that had both been given an inflammatory agent that is known to induce colitis. However one group had curcumin within their diet for the five days prior to the administration. Curcumin is what gives turmeric its orange pigment. The five that had curcumin in their diets did suffer the effects colitis, however those effects such as weight loss had been noticeably reduced.
