One of the leading researchers of curcumin (derived from turmeric) is Ajay Goel, PhD, Director of epigenetics and cancer prevention at Gastrointestinal Cancer Research Lab at Baylar University Medical Center in Dallas. He has studied curcumin for 15 years and notes that “curcumin is the only botanical whose clear efficacy has been demonstrated by science”. Almost 5,000 peer-reviewed studies now exist to support curcumin’s beneficial effects.
Curcumin has been described by today’s scientific researchers as an “unsung hero”. While it hasn’t received a lot of publicity (yet), it has been the subject of more study that any other compound, and these studies have been incredibly encouraging about its potential to treat such ailments as:
Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS and other neuro-degenerative diseases
Pharmaceutical companies have been working long and hard to develop a synthetic turmeric/curcumin that will produce similar results. Did you know that most pharmaceuticals have natural “roots” but instead of promoting the natural herbs that don’t promote profits, mainstream medical attempts to mirror the natural for profitable synthetics? What do you get when you “mess with” mother nature? High-priced pharmaceuticals with a mile-long list of side effects. It’s never a good idea to “mess with Mother Nature”!
If you’re inclined to consider a natural protocol to health, there are two very important things to consider:
First, low cost (and low quality) substitutes cannot produce the results you’re hoping for. The studies that you read about were not conducted using Walmart discount vitamins! There is a huge difference in the quality and performance of discount supplements and you definitely get what you pay for. If you’re going to take a bold step in relying on a natural supplement for positive results, you need to bite-the-bullet and take the best that you can get your hands on.
Next, you need to understand that your body didn’t get where it is overnight and reversing your health won’t be a quick fix either. There may be a pharmaceutical that will mask symptoms quickly BUT reversing health takes a little time and a lot of commitment. I would recommend documenting your “symptoms” before you begin your turmeric/curcumin journey and then make a minimum of a 6 month (preferably 12 month) commitment of a daily dose (or two). Revisit your “symptoms” at the end of this trial and you’ll be able to note the difference. Remember, patience is a virtue.
As for me, Ukon is the only worthy turmeric/curcumin supplement. Why? Because it is harvested from wild, organic turmeric from Okinawa, Japan which is known to have the most potent turmeric of anywhere in the world. The Japanese are recognized as being #1 for health and longevity in the world AND they aren’t plagued with chronic conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or cancer. They attribute their good health to diet, the right water and a daily diet of wild organic turmeric.
Since Japan is #1 in the world, I think I’ll continue following their lead when it comes to health and wellness! It sounds like we might have a few things to learn from them!
