7 Common Drugs You Can Replace With Turmeric

7 Common Drugs You Can Replace With Turmeric

Turmeric has been the subject of nearly 6,000 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies. Researchers have been studying the powerful spice for years. Thanks to piles of research, scientists have come to the conclusion that turmeric has some major health benefits for the body and brain. Its active ingredient – curcumin – is so powerful that turmeric can be used to replace many dangerous medications. It serves as a safer, more natural options sans harmful side effects.

Here are seven drugs you can replace with turmeric
1.Aspirin (Blood Thinner)
Studies have shown that curcumic contains anti-platelet effects, which indicates that it may be a safer and more natural treatment option than aspirin, for patients who are prone to vascular thrombosis.
2.Metformin (Diabetes Drug)
In a 2009 study, researchers found that curcumin is able to activate AMPK, which increases glucose uptake. According to the study, curcumin was found to be 500 times to 10,000 times more potent than metformin in activating activated protein kinase (AMPK).

3.Atorvastatin (Cholesterol Medication)
In a 2008 study, researchers found that a standard preparation of curcuminoids from turmeric performed better than the drug atorvastatin or Lipitor. Turmeric was more effective at reducing inflammation and oxidative-stress in patients with type-2 diabetes.
4.Anti-inflammatory Drugs
According to a 2004 study published in the journal Oncogene, curcumin was found to be an effective alternative to many anti-inflammatory drugs, thanks to its powerful natural anti-inflammatory properties. The study showed that curcumin may be used instead of:
• Ibuprofen
• Sulindac
• Naproxen
• Diclofenac
• Celecoxib
And Tamoxifen.

5.Oxaliplatin (Chemotherapy-Drug)
A study published in the International Journal of Cancer in 2009 found that curcumin was more effective as an anti-proliferative agent in colorectal cell lines, compared to the chemotherapy drug oxaliplatin. Other studies have shown that curcumin is able to target several different types of cancer, including lung-cancer, melanoma, breast-cancer, ovarian-cancer and gastrointestinal-cancers.

6.Corticosteroids (Steroid Medications)
A study published in Pytotherapy Research found that curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric, was able to better manage an inflammatory eye disease compared to steroids. Another study published in Critical Care Medicine found that curcumin was also more effective than steroids at regulating inflammatory genes.

7. Fluoxetine & Imipramine (Antidepressants)
According to a 2011 study published in Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica, cucumin was more effective than both Prozac and Imipramine at reducing depressive behavior in an animal model.

Few ways to use Turmeric in your diet are

Blend it into a smoothie.
While fresh turmeric root is especially great in juices and smoothies, a pinch of ground spice is good, too.
Use it in soups.
A bowl of vegetable or chicken soup feels even more warming when it’s tinged with golden turmeric.
Try it with greens.
Sprinkle turmeric into sautéed or braised greens like kale, collards, and cabbage
Add it to rice.
A dash of turmeric brings color and mild flavor to a pot of plain rice or a fancier pilaf.
Toss it with roasted vegetables.
Turmeric’s slightly warm and peppery flavor works especially well with cauliflower, potatoes, and root vegetables.
