Turmeric Inhibits Breast Cancer

In a recent study by The University of Arizona, researchers in the department of medicine revealed the potent chemotherapeutic benefits of turmeric-derived curcuminoids in the treatment of breast cancer. Three specific curcuminoids were found to inhibit the activity of parathyroid hormone-related hormone (PTHrP)-an important regulator of cancer bone metastasis. Each of the curcuminoids exhibited a complex anti-mutagenic, inhibitory effect on cancer cell growth. Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a spice native to India and is one of the principle herbs used in the world’s oldest form of medicine, Ayurveda. In recent years, turmeric has become popular as a safe, effective anti-inflammatory, and new research is showing the diverse pharmacological properties of turmeric which quench free radicals by recycling the body’s endogenous antioxidant stores.   Wright LE, Frye JB, Gorti B, Timmermann BN, Funk JL.Source Endocrinology Section, Department of Medicine, The University of Arizona, Curr Pharm Des. 2013 Feb 19.
