Curcumin is thought to reduce inflammation and naturally increase the production of cortisol and other anti-inflammatory compounds.

( — April 18, 2017) Orlando, FL — Addiction is typically linked with a personality or chemical imbalance complication. However, recently it has been found that it could be associated with inflammation.

Science reveals that curcumin may be a new answer for addiction. Curcumin is a bioactive ingredient found in turmeric, which is an ancient spice. It is popularized by the variety of unique properties it contains.

“Curcumin is believed to contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, and anti-carcinogenic properties,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

According to science, the development of an addictive behavior could be due to the inflammatory signals in the brain. It may be that inflammation does not directly cause addiction, but it could increase the risk of dependence.

The researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder reveal that this new finding could potentially expand the scope of medications against drug and alcohol addiction. Some health experts recommend that the therapy for addiction should not only be directed against brain chemicals, but also the immune system and inflammation.

In alcoholics, it is quite common to find inflammation in the liver and gut, which eventually results in the inflammation in the brain. According to the findings of some animal-based studies, there are compounds that may have the potential to shut down this inflammatory pathway, and this could decrease signs of alcohol dependence.

It is important to note that alcoholic beverages, as well as, many pharmaceutical drugs can cause inflammation. They have the potential to activate the inflammatory messages in the brain. They also activate microglia, as well as, improve pro-inflammatory gene expression.

The Pharmacology and Therapeutics published a study that reveals the activation of microglia by addictive drugs may trigger the domination of inflammation in the brain’s immune system.

According to the Body Ecology Diet Principle of Step by Step, many regain balance gradually as healing is not an overnight phenomenon. Healing, more importantly, requires dedication, time, and commitment.

Making dietary changes is essential in cleansing the body from toxins and reducing inflammation. Sufferers should eliminate common inflammatory triggers, such as gluten and grains.

Using potential anti-inflammatory herbs such as turmeric may also be an excellent part of these changes. Individuals may add turmeric powder while preparing dishes and beverages to take advantage of the potentially beneficial properties of curcumin.

Supplements are popularized by the higher levels of curcumin they may contain. Taking curcumin supplements is widely believed to help consumers take more doses of its possible therapeutic properties. One of the most popular curcumin supplements contains black pepper extract.
