Turmeric —— A fierce superfood spice that melts away body fat and defeats insulin resistance

2013/07/10

A study at Xi'an Jiaotong University School of Medicine in China also found turmeric intake to be beneficial for weight loss. As stated by Anthony Gucciardi of Natural Society:

"... curcumin (once again, a compound within turmeric found in extracts and the food itself) consumption directly decreased levels of insulin resistance and leptin resistance-two factors heavily linked to fat gain. In the conclusion of the research, study authors state:

 "By diminishing the sediment of fat, relaxing the lymphatic return, and refraining the apoptosis of beta cells, the curcumin might significantly decrease the level of insulin resistance and leptin resistance caused by the high fat diet."

Similar findings were observed at the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center -- Columbia University. Dr. Drew Tortoriello, M.D., an endocrinologist and research scientist, found that "turmeric-fed obese mice showed significantly reduced inflammation in fat tissue and liver compared to controls." He suspects "the anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant ingredient in turmeric, lessens insulin resistance and prevents type 2 diabetes in these mouse models by dampening the inflammatory response provoked by obesity," according to Science Daily.

Happily, researchers believe these results can be applied to humans too. With such a profusion of healthy benefits, all you really have to lose by enjoying this vibrant spice is excess weight.
