How Does Turmeric Boost The Immune System?
Turmeric supplementation is associated with now over 600 clinically studied benefits according to a Green Med Info research article. Turmeric supplementation especially its extract of curcumin has been studied for a variety of benefits and have been using a variety of protocols with many of these protocols stating that they have found all sorts of success by the strategic use of turmeric supplementation.
As a general immune system booster, turmeric can be added to a immune system boosting protocol to help the immune system or modulate the immune system as the clinical study has found below. The particular dosage and frequency would need to be found in order to help one thwart a cold or flu.
Turmeric is generally very well known as an anti-inflammatory nutrient which could be associated towards reducing the inflammation caused by an immune system response to bad bugs, to cells possessed by viruses in the body. So maybe one could be less symptomatic with less mucous when undergoing an immune system response.
I personally used whole turmeric supplementation (not just curcumin) for a remarkable joint injury recovery as part of a very interesting protocol within two weeks. More on that later. Actually you can go to MyJointMiracle.com to learn about it.
For immune boosting or any health goal targeting, an important issue would be to have supplementation that is of dosage and frequency to coordinate with the goal what you are try trying to achieve in your health.. You can take turmeric for general Health booster self for example you would get our turmeric formula and just take the suggested use once per day as a general health booster.
And so I am bringing clarity to the concept of frequency volume of supplementation in coordination with the problem to solve or the goal to achieve because a lot of people these days have this screwball magic pill thinking that is out there for a variety of reasons but largely due to the way marketers tried desperately to write their ad copy in order to convert sales, because if they don’t convert sales then they go out of business.
So over the year, in years past they’ve come up with all sorts of wackadoodle concepts and ideas, exaggerations and hyperbole for trying to promote their various health products, medicines and drugs. Anyways more on that topic later. But check out this clinical study in the mean time:
Unfortunately this type of marketing has become so pervasive that is taking on a comprehensive cultural mindset where people think they can just take one pill and it will cure all their problems. That’s sort of like thinking that you can eat one banana and you’ll never be hungry again.
Traditionally known for its an antiinflammatory effects, curcumin has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent that can modulate the activation of T cells, B cells, macrophages, neutrophils, natural killer cells, and dendritic cells. Curcumin can also downregulate the expression of various proinflammatory cytokines including TNF, IL-1, IL-2, IL-6, IL-8, IL-12, and chemokines, most likely through inactivation of the transcription factor NF-kappaB. Interestingly, however, curcumin at low doses can also enhance antibody responses. This suggests that curcumin’s reported beneficial effects in arthritis, allergy, asthma, atherosclerosis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and cancer might be due in part to its ability to modulate the immune system. Together, these findings warrant further consideration of curcumin as a therapy for immune disorders.
