Diabetes is an awful disease, one that costs an extreme amount to manage and is life changing for those who are diagnosed with it. Of course, all treatment plans and actions should be managed through a doctor but in a recent article scientists have suggested that adding turmeric and curcumin to your daily routine may help as well. By helping ward off inflammation to providing additional omega 3, individuals were found to have an over 30% chance of reducing their diabetic risk factors.
- When treating diabetes, the treatment can fall into one of two categories: medications such as Metformin or lifestyle habits change like exercising or having a proper diet.
- It is estimated that 30.3 Americans were suffering from diabetes in 2015 and this represents ten percent of the American population.
- It is increasingly being agreed that as a leading cause of death, it is important to gain control over diabetes and turmeric is being recognized as a key.
“It’s the active polyphenol found in turmeric known as curcumin that is responsible for the beneficial effects, and an ever-growing body of research shows the multi-pronged approach that curcumin takes in addressing this all-too-common illness.”
