Over a series of six months the study revealed the involvement of turmeric extract, curcumin does stop the fatty deposits forming on the inner surfaces of the arteries obstructing the blood flow.

Marks of inflammation, insulin resistance and uric acid levels were randomly assigned to the curcumin treated group. In addition, the level of anti-inflammatory the changes in body weight, blood pressure, kidney and liver function (AST and ALT), were monitored in all participants taking the curcumin capsules.

    I’ve bee using Turmeric powder for 8+ years. I keep it in a salt shaker and whenever, whatever I cook, from oatmeal to fish, vegetable, I put in about 3-4 shakes of Tumeric along w/a shake or two of Black or White Pepper, except of course in sweet foods, like Oatmeal, cookies, etc.

    One of the side effects is that it gets rid of excess water, which accumulates around injured/sick joints, due to autoimmune illnesses. So if you suffer from Arthritis, Rheumatism, etc. use it. Also, you always get some, whenever you eat and don’t have to worry about taking capsules or adding it to your food.

    Another great herb is “Fenugreek,” also from India and great for stabilizing blood sugar. Check w/your Doctors.

    Why not try the natural remedies before resorting to the man-made pharmaceuticals and likely side effects? I will never understand why modern medicine always has to come in a pill bottle.

    Maybe if a combination of this 2 resveratrol and turmeric, might bring some hope in type 2 diabetes

  12. Rosemarie West   May 17, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    Does this only apply to type 2 diabetes? What about type 1 diabetes?

    Transmax-resveratrol, an extract of purple grape skins, is a much more effective dietary alternatives to treat Type 2 Diabetes than Tumeric (curcumin). It, like Tumeric, can be used with drugs such as Metformin. In two recently published human clinical trials done by respected medical schools it was shown that transmax had the effect of reducing blood glucose, improving insulin sensitivity, lowering blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, and even lowering body weight, at least as well as the Diabetes drugs, but without the adverse effects. The scientist who did the transmax study stated, “Resveratrol can be an effective adjunct therapy for type 2 Diabetics currently using one of the Metformin like drugs, or who are controlling their Diabetes without drugs.”
