Turmeric may prevent/reverse type 1 and 2 diabetes

Slowly but surely the world is waking up to the reality that diabetes is not only a preventable but a reversible condition, and that the drug-based model of symptom suppression and disease management has fatal flaws.

While plants like cinnamon and gymnema sylvestre have received plenty of attention for diabetes over the years, one special plant extract that is beginning to stand out from the crowd as being exceptionally valuable as an anti-diabetic agent is turmeric. There are, in fact, 21 articles on turmeric's value in type 2 diabetes on our database alone.

Turmeric's primary polyphenol curcumin is the main compound in the plant that has been researched for it's blood sugar regulating properties. One particularly striking study, published in the American Diabetic Association's own journal, Diabetes Care, found turmeric extract to be 100% effective in preventing pre-diabetics from developing type 2 diabetes -- a feat of prevention that no FDA approved drug for type 2 diabetes has yet come even close to accomplishing.

t turns out that this spice may be a powerful therapeutic intervention for more than just type 2 diabetics. Pre-clinical research now reveals it may have a role in reversing pancreatic damage in insulin-dependent, type 1 diabetics, who are routinely told that their condition can not be cured. Type 1 diabetics are rarely educated to the fact that the root cause of their disorder can be addressed: namely, that the deficiency and/or dysfunction of the beta cells in the pancreas responsible for producing insulin can be repaired, as well as the autoimmune issues at the heart of the problem.

The daily dose used in this rodent study (80 mg/kg) was the body weight equivalent of 6,400 mg or 6.4 grams of curcumin for an average North American male adult (80 kilograms/176 lbs). Rodent and human physiology is, of course, radically different, but significant crossovers nonetheless do exist.

Wow! 6 grams per day? Well, I guess if I had diabetes, I would do it.

Good info Jfh, thanks. I've been taking a small spoonful of Turmeric daily for awhile now, so many health benefits...preventing diabetes is on my list. Of course an expensive Curcumin supplement would probably be more ideal, but I spend enough on vitamins/herbs and supplements, can't afford much more...trying to cut down, but hard to do.

The LifeExtension Foundation provides an excellent curcumin extract supplement called SUPER BIO-CURCUMIN. It's a 400 mg capsule of the trademarked concentrate, BCM-95 Bio-Curcumin, which is described as standardized "to 95% Total Curcuminoids Complex with Essential Oils of Turmeric Rhizome by HPLC (380 mg)", and is reported to be up to 7 times more bioavailable than ordinary 95% curcumin extract and to remain in the bloodstream almost twice as long.

One 400 mg vegetarian capsule is said to provide the equivalent of 2,772 mg of commercial curcumin; so just two capsules should provide the equivalent of 5,544 mg or almost 6 grams. You can read about it here:

Thanks, Beach Man. I have been using Dr Mercola's advanced curcumin, but quite expensive. Curcumin is not easy to absorb, so very much a waste. That pepper stuff in not that satisfactory either. I'll try the Life Extension product next. I trust them.
