New research published by the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine suggests that consuming turmeric — and its main ingredient, curcumin — for just two months may boost the numbers of good bacteria in your gut by seven percent. The research focused on 30 adults who received either a placebo, turmeric or a standardized curcumin extract. These findings are significant because the good bacteria (or microflora) in your gut provide a major element of your body’s defenses against pathogens of all kinds.
- Having a good gut health is important for physical and mental health and the secret to doing this is to have a diverse array of bacteria in the gut.
- It has been discovered by a study that turmeric, which has curcumin, can increase good gut bacteria by 7 percent if taken for two months.
- The study was conducted in the US and involved thirty participants that were divided into three groups: a placebo group, a turmeric group, and a curcumin group.
“Gut health isn’t just important for digestive health, it also benefits other body systems, including the nervous and the immune system.”
