Curcumin and Melanoma
Curcumin interferes with melanoma cells. Invitro studies show that curcumin-forced melanoma (skin cancer) cells are more likely to self-destruct in a process known as apoptosis. The same study also found curcumin helped stop the spread of breast cancer tumor cells to the lungs of mice. The curcumin suppressed two proteins that tumor cells use to keep themselves immortal. Studies evaluating the role of curcumin and cancer continue to advance at a fast rate.
Curcumin and Alzheimer’s disease
In laboratory studies, curcumin inhibits amyloid formation. Whether curcumin supplements help reduce the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease or help improve this condition is not known at this time.
Studies in Germany, reported that “All fractions of the turmeric extract preparation exhibited pronounced antioxidant activity….” Turmeric extract tested more potent than garlic, devil’s claw, and salmon oil.
More studies indicate that curcumin slows the development and growth of a number of types of cancer cells. Researchers now define curcumin as a broad-spectrum anti-cancer agent where its detoxifying enzymes indicate its potential value as a protective agent against chemical carcinogenesis and other forms of electrophilic toxicity. The significance can be implicated in relation to cancer chemo preventive effects of curcumin against the induction of tumors in various target organs. Another recent study that states curcumin may inhibit some chemotherapy agents for breast cancer.
