Derived from turmeric, Curcumin has been relied upon as an anti-inflammatory to treat arthritis and muscle and joint pain. It also boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which improves brain function as we age. However, new studies from top cancer researchers have discovered that Curcumin reduces cancer growth and is able distinguish between cancer cells and non-affected cells. 

Curcumin runs interference against toxins and enzymes that contribute to cancer growth. Also, it seeks out abnormal cells and induces apoptosis, a programmed death of a cell. Curcumin can also inhibit the formation of new blood vessels that contribute to tumour growth. What’s even more interesting is that it promotes healthy cell growth while slowing tumor growth.

Curcumin can inhibit the entry of hepatitis C virus into liver cells. When used intravenously (IV), Curcumin is readily absorbed into the tissues. The treatment usually takes two hours.
