Indian Researcher Reveals Turmeric Coupled With Omega ‘ 3 Fat Can Prevent Type ‘ 2 Diabetes :
Turmeric which has found its usage in many age-old remedies apart from being a good spice that is used while cooking food, now can be used to protect humans against one of the most common disease of world.
Lead study author Professor Manohar Garg from the University of Newcastle’s Nutraceuticals said that being a systemic inflammation, type 2 diabetes affects insulin secretion and its functions. The authors wanted to stop the inflammation in the bud and for this they took two bioactive compound ‘ curcumin and omega-3 fats easily found in food. Both the compounds are well known anti-inflammatory agents. Curcumin, derived from turmeric, is part of the ginger family and commonly used for food colouration.
Researchers founded that earlier people used to use turmeric extensively in their food. Now people have started following western diets that have resulted in significant decline in the consumption of curcumin in food. Due to this new trend number of people suffering from type 2 diabetes in India have grown exponentially. Researchers warned that the diabetes is an epidemic in India and will soon become the number one burden for the country if nothing is done to prevent the disease now.
Effect of turmeric will be tested in randomized trial. Garg explained that all the volunteers will be divided into four groups. Group one will get curcumin only, group two will be given omega-3 fat only, group three will get both the compounds and group four will serve as control group.
A volunteer should be aged between 30 and 70 should be prone to diabetes due to impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose, to be eligible for the study. It is sure that it has no side effects and can be used to treat diabetes. Its effectiveness will be proved after clinical trials.
