10 Foods That Fight Inflammation

Inflammation Fighting Food #2: Curcumin

Curcumin is a naturally occurring chemical found in plants. It has a bright yellow color and is often sold as a food flavoring, herbal supplement, or ingredient in cosmetics. Chemically, it belongs to the curcuminoids, which are natural phenols that provides the yellow color.

Despite many efforts via clinical and laboratory research to confirm its medical use, there is little to no evidence that supports it. This can be attributed to it being unstable and difficult to study. However, there are many reports where it significantly helps patients by improving their symptoms of inflammatory diseases. Studies of curcumin on animal models have shown significant improvement of inflammatory symptoms.
