Livers love curry

Turmeric, a spice commonly used in curries, has a range of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Most of these effects come from curcumin, a component of turmeric. Now researchers wanted to see if curcumin could delay the damage caused by inflammatory liver disease. They looked at two conditions (sclerosing cholangitis and primary biliary cirrhosis) that cause the liver’s system of bile ducts to become inflamed, scarred, and blocked. Tissue and blood samples were taken from mice with chronic liver inflammation after they had been given curcumin in their diet for four or eight weeks. The curcumin significantly reduced bile duct blockage and cut liver cell damage and scarring by blocking enzymes involved in inflammation. A “curcumin” pill is on the way and already exists in some forms. How many curries you need to eat remains to be seen, but in the meantime order a vindaloo for your liver.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
