The history of the spice turmeric, whose main active component is called curcumin, is diverse and well-documented.
Curcumin is actually part of the ginger family and it is made by grinding the roots of a large-leafed Asian plant known as Curcuma Longa.
The spice itself has been used by the people of India and Asia for centuries and many of its uses - from treating cuts and sores to more serious chronic diseases - are described in ancient Indian medical texts.
And now it's been shown to prevent and even help kill cancer cells - find out more below...
Studies are mounting showing how effective curcumin is in fighting cancer...
According to University of Chicago scientists, curcumin inhibits a cancer
-provoking bacteria (H. pylori) associated with gastric and colon cancer
And, biochemists in China reported that curcumin reduces a gene responsible for starting up prostate
cancer, and could also reduce hormone receptor sensitivity to this gene.
BREAKTHROUGH: This natural nutrient is proving to kill cancer stem cells!
Curcumin also appears to be able to suppress the formation of tumours as well as protect against the DNA damage that causes cancer.
One study found that the risk of tumour
development in rats following exposure to X-ray dropped from 70.3% to 18.5% after receiving just 1% curcumin (turmeric extract) in their diet.

The MOST dangerous type of cancer cell MUST be disarmed if there’s any hope of beating cancer…
Scientists have discoverd that cancer cells have a certain hierarchy.
…Similar to a bee colony. There’s the worker bees, and the queen bee, whose sole responsibility is to ensure the survival of the colony by laying eggs.
So it is with cancer...
There’s the hundreds of thousands of normal cancer cells, and then nestled deep inside a tumour
, is at least one cancer stem cell…
Like the queen bee, these cancer stem cells’ sole responsibility is to ensure the survival of their colony by mutating and evolving.
Until now, chemotherapy and radiation have been unsuccessful in disarming these dominant cancer cells…
But now there’s new hope for cancer sufferers.
Find out here how a Natural compound has been shown to destroy cancer stem cells…
It fights cancer in various ways...
Research done on breast cancer
cells resistant to the common cancer drug Taxol showed that curcumin was also able to suppress proteins responsible for metastasis and enhance cancer cell apoptosis (pre-programmed cell death or “cell suicide”) – an exciting discovery that holds great potential for cancer treatment
Use turmeric in your food and take a curcumin supplement to get the benefits this amazing golden spice offers.
