Description
Traditionally grown and ground haldi from a farmer family of Meghalaya with a high curcumin index of 7-9%. Also known as Indian saffron, Turmeric belongs to the ginger family and is grown as a spice in many Asian countries. (1) The health benefits of turmeric are widely known and have been used in traditional medicine to treat skin disorders and digestive issues. (2)

Turmeric & Cancer
Turmeric is being extensively studied for its cancer-fighting abilities. The active ingredient present in turmeric known as curcumin is supposedly found to have potential anti-cancer effects. (1). Polyphenols extracted from Curcuma longa has exhibited antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-cancer properties. (3)

According to laboratory studies, 100-200mg daily consumption of turmeric has found to kill carcinogenic cells and has further more inhibited the growth of cancer causing cells. (1)

Curcumin has been reported to modulate enzymes, growth factors, enzymes, kinase, inflammatory cytokines, proapoptotic (by upregulation) and antiapoptotic (by downregulation) proteins and therefore represents as an effective drug in cancer therapy. (3)

Studies have also shown that turmeric can also be potentially used to alleviate the side effects caused due to cancer treatments (2)

Research

  1. In 2013, an international laboratory study revealed that combined chemotherapy along with consumption of turmeric showed better results than chemotherapy alone. (4)
  2. Studies have revealed that curcumin can effectively contribute to the death of cancer cells, and reduce angiogenesis and metastasis. (5,6)
  3. Turmeric can prevent the occurrence of cancer in the first place, especially for cancers of the digestive system like colorectal cancer. (3)
  4. A 30-day trial on 44 men with lesions showed that upon consumption of 4 grams of curcumin per day, lesions in the colon got visibly reduced in numbers. (7)

TURMERIC+ BLACK PEPPER
Review studies highlight that turmeric is not easily absorbed in the body. Thus, to increase bioavailability, turmeric is consumed with black pepper. It has been proven that piperine present in black pepper enhances the absorption of turmeric by 2000% (8)

Piperine aids the process of curcumin passing the intestinal walls and into the bloodstream and slows the breakdown of curcumin by the liver. (9, 10)

A study revealed that combined the use of curcumin and piperine interrupted the process of self-renewal of breast stem cells and has shown protective effects against cancers like colorectal, prostate, pancreatic and more. (11, 12)

EAT AS PER YOUR BODY WEIGHT
It is recommended that an individual may consume 500-2000mg of turmeric daily. On the other hand, 5-20mg of piperine is considered safe for per day consumption. (13, 14)

Storage Conditions (15)
Fresh turmeric can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks but ground turmeric should be placed in a cool, dark place in a thoroughly sealed container. Turmeric begins to lose its potency within 6 months or sooner if exposed to light and heat.

Side Effects (16)
The side-effects of un-recommended consumption of turmeric are as follows;

  1. Diarrhoea
  2. Increased risk of kidney stones
  3. Aggravation of bleeding disorders
  4. Digestive issues
