Efficacy of Curcumin in Cancerous Dilemmas


According to worldwide research, cancer is understood to appear among the leading causes of premature death. While it is an extremely dreadful disease, characterized by near uncontrolled growth of malignant cells in the body, the cancerous cells could affect any organ, forming a tumour in a very short span of time. And it may even spread from one organ to another before we actually come to know of it. Therefore, a cure to control its growth is needed, one at the molecular level so as to treat the problem from the root and as well prevent it from recurring.

Adverse effect could be perturbing

The various advancements in terms of medication as well as treatment such as chemotherapy have indeed shown some results. However, when a person is suffering from cancer, the rate of proliferation of cancer cells is significantly high, and before we know, they tend to have spread all across the organ and caused the damage. In such cases, even these advanced levels of treatment sometimes fail to work, and on the contrary, adversely affect the health of the person.

Curcumin provides essential support

Native primarily to the Indian subcontinent as well as the Southeast Asia, Curcumin has played a major role as a healing herbal ingredient in the system of Ayurveda as well as other traditional forms of Indian medication. This is an extract derived from the turmeric plant, known worldwide for its incredible yet promising anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, antiseptic, analgesic, cosmetic as well as anti-carcinogenic properties. Turmeric contains a number of bioactive compounds which provide it with these incredible medicinal properties. Being one of the three known curcuminoids found in turmeric, curcumin, however, is what makes turmeric one of the is the best available sources of natural cure for a wide variety of ailments like chest pain, menstrual pains, flatulence, wounds and bruises (both external as well as internal), jaundice, haemorrhage, toothache, urinary tract infection, etc.

Curcumin has enormous assistances

That is where the potent, cancer-fighting properties of curcumin come into action. Apart from presenting exceptional benefits of its own; curcumin is especially known to thwart the serious side effects presented by these treatments.

  • Curcumin has a huge tendency to get absorbed into the cancerous cells, thus inhibiting their further growth and progress.
  • It is known to exhibit its effect on a variety of biological pathways involved in mutagenesis, cell cycle regulation, tumour-genesis, oncogene expression, etc.
  • By means of metastatis, curcumin prevents the spread of cancer cells from one organ to another.
  • Turmeric, besides, is also known to trigger programmed cell death, a phenomenon known in medical terms as apoptosis, in which it equips our body to get rid of damaged and mutated cells, while keeping the healthy cells unharmed. Therefore, curcumin selectively targets the cells that are damaging to our health, and result in their gradual eradication from our body.
  • By means of a process known as angiogenesis, curcumin also prevents the supply of blood that leads to build-up and growth of cancer cells.
  • Also, thanks to its ability to modulate genetic activities, curcumin helps in the eradication of existing cancer cells, and does not allow the formation of new ones.
  • It also prevents the transformation of cells from normal into a tumour, by inducing a tumour suppressing gene.
  • The inflammatory properties of curcumin as well as its ability to activate the antioxidant defence system further hinder the development of cancer cells.
  • Moreover, this very curcumin also prevents the regrowth of cancer stem cells in our body.

Preventive and curative cover

Curcumin, the active compound of the turmeric plant has, therefore, become useful universally in terms of preventing, treating as well as curing the damaging effects of cancer cells. It works in almost all stages of cancer, and has shown some especially promising results in fighting cancer associated with breast, skin, stomach, liver and prostate. This incredible anti-cancer nutrient is being used in a variety of doctor recommended medications the world over. For those looking for DIY remedies using turmeric, it is best used in dried and powdered form instead of using it as whole. In fact, it is believed that the anti-carcinogenic properties of turmeric become more powerful and profound, when combined with olive oil, coconut oil or fish oil, and even black pepper for that matter. And since curcumin forms only a minor part of turmeric, the herb should be included in our everyday diet so as to provide our body with enough of this indispensable compound, cancer or no cancer!
