Antitumor activity of curcumin is mediated through the induction of apoptosis in AK-5 tumor cells. (1/1291)

Curcumin, the yellow pigment of turmeric (Curcuma longa), used commonly as a spice, has been shown to possess anticarcinogenic activity. Curcumin inhibited AK-5 tumor growth and induced apoptosis in AK-5 cells. Curcumin induced apoptosis is mediated through the activation of caspase-3, which is specifically inhibited by the tetrapeptide Ac-DEVD-CHO. In addition, curcumin induced tumor cell death is caused through the generation of reactive oxygen intermediates which is inhibited by N-acetyl-L-cysteine. Our studies suggest that the apoptotic process induced by curcumin is the mechanism mediating AK-5 tumor cell death.  (+info)

Biotransformation of curcumin through reduction and glucuronidation in mice. (2/1291)

Curcumin, the yellow pigment in turmeric and curry, has antioxidative and anticarcinogenic activities. In this study, we investigated the pharmacokinetic properties of curcumin in mice. After i.p. administration of curcumin (0.1 g/kg) to mice, about 2.25 microg/ml of curcumin appeared in the plasma in the first 15 min. One hour after administration, the levels of curcumin in the intestines, spleen, liver, and kidneys were 177.04, 26.06, 26.90, and 7.51 microg/g, respectively. Only traces (0.41 microg/g) were observed in the brain at 1 h. To clarify the nature of the metabolites of curcumin, the plasma was analyzed by reversed-phase HPLC, and two putative conjugates were observed. Treatment of the plasma with beta-glucuronidase resulted in a decrease in the concentrations of these two putative conjugates and the concomitant appearance of tetrahydrocurcumin (THC) and curcumin, respectively. To investigate the nature of these glucuronide conjugates in vivo, the plasma was analyzed by electrospray. The chemical structures of these metabolites, determined by mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry analysis, suggested that curcumin was first biotransformed to dihydrocurcumin and THC and that these compounds subsequently were converted to monoglucuronide conjugates. Because THC is one of the major metabolites of curcumin, we studied its stability at different pH values. THC was very stable in 0.1 M phosphate buffers of various pH values. Moreover, THC was more stable than curcumin in 0.1 M phosphate buffer, pH 7.2 (37 degrees C). These results, together with previous findings, suggest that curcumin-glucuronoside, dihydrocurcumin-glucuronoside, THC-glucuronoside, and THC are major metabolites of curcumin in vivo.  (+info)

The effect of curcumin and placebo on human gall-bladder function: an ultrasound study. (3/1291)

BACKGROUND: The extract of medicinal plants containing curcumin is traditionally believed to have a positive contraction effect on the human gall-bladder. AIMS: To compare the effect of 20 mg curcumin or placebo on the gall-bladder volume of healthy volunteers. METHODS: A randomized, double blind and crossover design study was carried out in 12 healthy volunteers (seven males and five females). Ultrasonography examination was carried out serially to measure the gall-bladder volume. The data obtained was analysed by paired Student's t-test. RESULTS: The fasting gall-bladder volumes of 15.74 +/- 4.29 mL on curcumin and 15.98 +/- 4.08 mL on placebo were similar (P > 0.20). The gall-bladder volume was reduced within the period after curcumin administration. The percentage of gall-bladder volume reduction at 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 h after 20 mg curcumin administration were 11.8 +/- 6.9, 16.8 +/- 7.4, 22.0 +/- 8.5 and 29. 3 +/- 8.3%, respectively, which was statistically significant compared to placebo. CONCLUSION: On the basis of the present findings, it appears that curcumin induces contraction of the human gall-bladder.  (+info)

Curcumin inhibits cyclooxygenase-2 transcription in bile acid- and phorbol ester-treated human gastrointestinal epithelial cells. (4/1291)

We investigated whether curcumin, a chemopreventive agent, inhibited chenodeoxycholate (CD)- or phorbol ester (PMA)-mediated induction of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in several gastrointestinal cell lines (SK-GT-4, SCC450, IEC-18 and HCA-7). Treatment with curcumin suppressed CD- and PMA-mediated induction of COX-2 protein and synthesis of prostaglandin E2. Curcumin also suppressed the induction of COX-2 mRNA by CD and PMA. Nuclear run-offs revealed increased rates of COX-2 transcription after treatment with CD or PMA and these effects were inhibited by curcumin. Treatment with CD or PMA increased binding of AP-1 to DNA. This effect was also blocked by curcumin. In addition to the above effects on gene expression, we found that curcumin directly inhibited the activity of COX-2. These data provide new insights into the anticancer properties of curcumin.  (+info)

Chemoprevention of colonic aberrant crypt foci by an inducible nitric oxide synthase-selective inhibitor. (5/1291)

Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is overexpressed in colonic tumors of humans and also in rats treated with a colon carcinogen. iNOS appear to regulate cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression and production of proinflammatory prostaglandins, which are known to play a key role in colon tumor development. Experiments were designed to study the inhibitory effects of S,S'-1,4-phenylene-bis(1,2-ethanediyl)bis-isothiourea (PBIT) a selective iNOS-specific inhibitor, measured against formation of azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colonic aberrant crypt foci (ACF). Beginning at 5 weeks of age, male F344 rats were fed experimental diets containing 0 or 50 p.p.m. of PBIT, or 2000 p.p.m. of curcumin (non-specific iNOS inhibitor). One week later, rats were injected s.c. with AOM (15 mg/kg body wt, once weekly for 2 weeks). At 17 weeks of age, all rats were killed, colons were evaluated for ACF formation and colonic mucosa was assayed for isoforms of COX and NOS activities. Both COX and iNOS activities in colonic mucosa of the AOM-treated rats were significantly induced. Importantly, 50 p.p.m. PBIT suppressed AOM-induced colonic ACF formation to 58% (P < 0.0001) and crypt multiplicity containing four or more crypts per focus to 78% (P < 0.0001); it also suppressed AOM-induced iNOS activity. Curcumin inhibited colonic ACF formation by 45% (P < 0.001). These observations suggest that iNOS may play a key regulatory role in colon carcinogenesis. Developing iNOS-specific inhibitors may provide a selective and safe chemopreventive strategy for colon cancer treatment.  (+info)

Relation of structure of curcumin analogs to their potencies as inducers of Phase 2 detoxification enzymes. (6/1291)

A series of naturally occurring as well as synthetic structural analogs of the dietary constituent curcumin were examined in order to elucidate which portions of the molecule are critical for the ability to induce Phase 2 detoxification enzymes in murine hepatoma cells, and hence to assess the chemoprotective potential of these compounds. Two groups of compounds were studied: classical Michael reaction acceptors such as curcumin and related beta-diketones such as dibenzoylmethane which lack direct Michael reactivity. The presence of two structural elements was found to be required for high inducer potency: (i) hydroxyl groups at ortho-position on the aromatic rings and (ii) the beta-diketone functionality. All curcuminoids elevate the specific activity of quinone reductase in both wild type and mutant cells defective in either the aryl hydrocarbon (Ah) receptor or cytochrome P4501A1 activity. This indicates that neither binding to this receptor, nor metabolic activation by P4501A1 are required for the signaling process originating from this family of electrophiles and ultimately resulting in Phase 2 enzyme induction.  (+info)

Chemoprevention by curcumin during the promotion stage of tumorigenesis of mammary gland in rats irradiated with gamma-rays. (7/1291)

We have evaluated the chemopreventive effects of curcumin on diethylstilbestrol (DES)-induced tumor promotion of rat mammary glands initiated with radiation. Sixty-four pregnant rats received whole body irradiation with 2.6 Gy gamma-rays from a 60Co source at day 20 of pregnancy and were divided into two groups after weaning. In the control group of 39 rats fed a basal diet and then implanted with a DES pellet for 1 year, 33 (84.6%) developed mammary tumors. Twenty-five rats were fed diet containing 1% curcumin immediately after weaning and received a DES pellet, as for the control. The administration of dietary curcumin significantly reduced the incidence (28.0%) of mammary tumors. Multiplicity and Iball's index of mammary tumors were also decreased by curcumin. Rats fed the curcumin diet showed a reduced incidence of the development of both mammary adenocarcinoma and ER(+)PgR(+) tumors in comparison with the control group. On long-term treatment with curcumin, body weight and ovarian weight were reduced, but liver weight was increased. Compared with the control rats, the curcumin-fed rats showed a significant reduction in serum prolactin, whereas estradiol-17beta and progesterone concentrations were not significantly different between the two groups. Curcumin did not have any effect on the concentration of free cholesterol, cholesterol ester and triglyceride. Feeding of the curcumin diet caused a significant increase in the concentrations of tetrahydrocurcumin, arachidonic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid and a significant decrease in thiobarbituric acid-reactive substance concentration in serum. Whole mounts of the mammary glands showed that curcumin yielded morphologically indistinguishable proliferation and differentiation from the glands of the control rats. These findings suggest that curcumin has a potent preventive activity during the DES-dependent promotion stage of radiation-induced mammary tumorigenesis.  (+info)

Curcumin inhibits tyrosine kinase activity of p185neu and also depletes p185neu. (8/1291)

Curcumin, a natural compound present in turmeric, possessing both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, has been studied vigorously as a chemopreventative in several cancer models. The erbB2/neu gene-encoded p185neu tyrosine kinase is a potent oncoprotein. Overexpression of p185neu in breast cancer is known to be a poor prognostic factor. We investigated the effect of curcumin on p185neu tyrosine kinase and on the growth of breast cancer cell lines. Curcumin dose-dependently inhibited p185neu autophosphorylation and transphosphorylation in vitro and depleted p185neu protein in vivo. It dissociated the binding of p185neu with GRP94 (glucose-regulated protein), a molecular chaperone, and enhanced the depletion of p185neu. The amount of p185neu protein on the cell membrane was drastically decreased after curcumin treatment. These data demonstrated a new mechanism of the anti-tyrosine kinase activity of curcumin. The growth of several breast cancer cell lines was inhibited; the IC50 ranged from 7 to 18 microM, which, however, did not correlate with the expression level of p185neu. Colony formation in the soft agar assay, a hallmark of the transformation phenotype, was preferentially suppressed in p185neu-overexpressing cell lines by 5 microM curcumin (% of control, basal level versus overexpression: 59.3 versus 16.7%; P < 0.001 by Student's t test). Because curcumin effectively inhibited p185neu tyrosine kinase activity by depleting p185neu and potently suppressed the growth of multiple breast cancer cell lines, its therapeutic potential in advanced breast cancer is worthy of further investigation.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Unloading of skeletal muscle causes atrophy and loss of contractile function. In part, this response is believed to be mediated by the transcription factor nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappaB). Both curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric, and N-acetylcysteine (NAC), an antioxidant, inhibit activation of NF-kappaB by inflammatory stimuli, albeit by different mechanisms. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that dietary curcumin or NAC supplementation would inhibit unloading-induced NF-kappaB activity in skeletal muscle and thereby protect muscles against loss of mass and function caused by prolonged unloading. METHODS: We used hindlimb suspension to unload the hindlimb muscles of adult mice. Animals had free access to drinking water or drinking water supplemented with 1% NAC and to standard laboratory diet or diet supplemented with 1% curcumin. For 11 days, half the animals in each dietary group were suspended by the tail (unloaded) and half were allowed to ambulate freely.
Indena S.p.A, the leading company in botanical extract technology have discovered the key to improving curcumin absorption. By using phytosome technology they have created Meriva®, a patented curcumin product with PC attached..

Even with Curcumins bioavailability issues, its restorative role in fighting various diseases is warranted. Due to the recent advancements made in Curcumins bioavailability, Curcumin can now move ahead even further as a therapeutic ...
The antioxidative properties of a novel curcumin analogue (2E,6E)-2,6-bis(3,5-dimethoxybenzylidene)cyclohexanone (MCH) were assessed by several in vitro models, including superoxide anion, hydroxyl radical and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging and PC12 cell protection from H2O2 damage. MCH displayed superior O2•− quenching abilities compared to curcumin and vitamin C. In vitro stability of MCH was also improved compared with curcumin. Exposure of PC12 cells to 150 µM H2O2 caused a decrease of antioxidant enzyme activities, glutathione (GSH) loss, an increase in malondialdehyde (MDA) level, and leakage of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), cell apoptosis and reduction in cell viability. Pretreatment of the cells with MCH at 0.63-5.00 µM before H2O2 exposure significantly attenuated those changes in a dose-dependent manner. MCH enhanced cellular expression of transcription factor NF-E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) at the transcriptional level. Moreover, MCH could mitigate intracellular

AbstractIn the present study, we have successfully set up a novel blue light source with the power density of 9 mW/cm(2) and the wavelength of 435.8 nm and then the novel light source was used to investigate the effect of light radiation on curcumin-induced cell death. The cytotoxicity was investigated 24 h after the treatment of curcumin and blue light radiation together using MTT reduction assay. Nuclear chromatin was observed using a fluorescent microscopy with Hoechst33258 staining. The results showed blue light radiation could significantly enhance the cytotoxicity of curcumin on the MCF-7 cells and apoptosis induction. These findings demonstrated that blue light radiation could enhance curcumin-induced cell death of breast cancer cells, suggesting light radiation may be an efficient enhancer of curcumin in the management of breast cancer. ...

Therapeutic strategies designed to increase the susceptibility of tumor cells to apoptosis have the potential to significantly augment the efficacy of a variety of cancer treatments. Enhancement of the apoptotic potential of tumor cells increases tumor responses to chemotherapy (21). The increase in GSH content in the cells after curcumin treatment suggests that curcumin interferes with the cell survival systems. Similar observations were also noted with several compounds undergoing anticancer activity tests like organotin compounds (22) and chemotherapeutic drugs like cisplatin (23). Curcumin has also been shown to increase the levels of GSH in several other systems like rat hepatocytes (24), kidney cells (25), and human leukemia cells (26). In this study, the depletion of endogenous GSH sensitized the cells to curcumin treatment and thereby increased the percentage of apoptotic cells, thus suggesting that curcumin may be inactivated by the formation of GSH-curcumin conjugate, and GSTs are ...
Curcumin, bis(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-1,6-heptadiene-3,5-dione, is a yellow-orange pigment which can be synthesised chemically or isolated from the plant Curcuma longa L. Curcumin has a rather broad absorption peak in the range 300-500 nm (maximum approximately 430 nm) and has potential as a photosensitiser for treatment of localised superficial infections in e.g., the mouth or skin. Previously, we have demonstrated phototoxic effects of curcumin in selected aqueous preparations against both gram-positive Enterococcus faecalis and Streptococcus intermedius and gram-negative Escherichia coil bacteria in vitro. One of the most efficient preparations was curcumin in polyethylene glycol (PEG 400) dissolved in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 6.1. In this study the solubilising effect of PEG 400 on curcumin molecules and the in vitro phototoxic effects of these preparations were further evaluated. The effect of varying the curcumin concentration (2.50 microM -25.00 microM), the radiant exposure ...

Nano curcumin treatment decreased mechanical hyperalgesia and thermal hyperalgesia and upregulated the ...
About 3% of curcumin is Bisdemethoxy-Curcumin. The biggest obstacle to achieving optimum results from curcumin is getting adequate absorption. Curcumin is a crystalline shaped phytochemical when its isolated and extracted into its purest form. This makes it difficult to absorb in water and subsequently, challenging to get absorption in the blood and cells.. Recent advancements in nutritional science to get around these challenges have been the creation of various delivery methods such as Nano-curcumin, Liposomal curcumin, turmeric mixed with piperine, BCM-95, and other branded versions. While these have all led to more efficient turmeric supplements, it still has not reached levels that Adam Paynes company has been able to achieve using a patented protein bonding technology.. Adams company, Ultra Botanica LLC, has been able to take curcumin science to a whole new level in the last year. His curcumin supplement can achieve peak curcumin levels in 20-40 minutes in the blood. His product is up ...

Curcumin is an antioxidative substance that possesses the ability to reduce inflammation. It has been reported recently that curcumin-treated L02 cells exhibited less cytotoxicity and genotoxicity induced by quinocetone, confirming the ability of curcumin to scavenge excessive iROS and resist oxidative stress.24 Trabecular meshwork cells under chronic oxidative stress produce sustained amount of iROS through the mitochondria. Jat et al.25 found that curcumin could elevate endogenous glutathione levels, thus protecting the mitochondrial integrity and enhancing the mitochondrial defense system to attenuate oxidative stress. Our results also confirmed that the levels of iROS were significantly lowered in the curcumin-treated group in comparison with the H2O2-treated group. Therefore, the effects of curcumin on the reduction of iROS may be considered as the major contribution to the relief of oxidative stress. The activation of iROS induced by chronic oxidative stress in TM cells frequently ...
AbstractTurmeric is commonly used as a medicinal herb and dietary supplement. Its active ingredient, curcumin, has been shown to possess antitumor effects in colorectal cancer patients. However, poor absorption of curcumin in intestine impedes its wide clinical application. Our previous findings showed that the presence of turmerones increased the accumulation of curcumin inside colonic cells. Hence, we hypothesized that curcumin with turmerones or present in turmeric ethanolic extract would augment its anti-tumor activities in tumor-bearing mice. The pharmacokinetics of curcumin in different preparations (containing same amount of curcumin) were studied in mice. The anti-tumor efficacies of curcumin or turmeric extract (with absorbable curcumin) in combination with bevacizumab were further investigated in HT29 colon tumor-bearing mice.

A team of researchers led by Basir Ahmad, an MSU postdoctoral researcher, demonstrated earlier this year that slow-wriggling alpha-synuclein proteins are the cause of clumping, or aggregation, which is the first step of diseases such as Parkinson´s. A new study led by Ahmad, which appears in the current issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, shows that curcumin can help prevent clumping.. Our research shows that curcumin can rescue proteins from aggregation, the first steps of many debilitating diseases, said Lisa Lapidus, MSU associate professor of physics and astronomy who co-authored the paper with Ahmad. More specifically, curcumin binds strongly to alpha-synuclein and prevents aggregation at body temperatures.. Lapidus´ lab uses lasers to study protein folding. Proteins are chains of amino ...
Curcumin Blocks Colorectal Cancer Inducing Hormone. Curcumin, the pigment responsible for the yellow color of the spice turmeric, has been found to block the activity of a hormone associated with the development of colorectal cancer. Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) worked with curcumin and cell cultures to link a gastrointestinal hormone to the production of an inflammatory protein that accelerates the growth of a variety of cancer cells. The study, was published in the September 2006 issue of Clinical Cancer Research.. Hormonal management is a new method of cancer treatment or prevention identified in this study. A gastrointestinal hormone called neurotensin has been linked to the production of an inflammatory protein that accelerates the growth of a variety of cancer cells. About a third of all colorectal cancer cells have the receptor for neurotensin, which is generated in response to consumption of fat. The researchers of the current study found that ...
Intake of curcumin at physiologically attainable doses could help to slow the development of prostate cancers by jamming receptors linked to cancer tumour
I would like to cover a little bit about the curcumin products like turmeric and possible phenol reactions. I have seen children with Autism who respond very well to products such as turmeric or Enhansa, both having the active ingredient of curcumin. We think that the positive effects come from potential anti-fungal or anti-bacterial effects that curcumin has been shown to have. Curcumin also is an anti-inflammatory and the benefit we see with these children could potentially come from that as well. Evidence is also mounting that curcumin may also raise glutathione levels in addition. So there are many reasons why we are seeing improvement with the use of curcumin products.. The issue becomes phenol sensitivity and some children can react very negatively to phenols. Phenols are chemicals that are found in many different types of foods, they are especially found in artificial colors and flavors. The reaction to phenols varies for each child. Some children become hyperactive, others get irritated ...
In Ayurveda, which is an ancient Indian medical practice the name of which means long life, turmeric is described as a powerful anti-inflammatory. How does it do it? Over the last 50 years, research has shown that the spices anti-inflammatory properties comes from curcumin, which is found in the spice. Curcumin has been found to slow or stop enzymes that cause inflammation, like cyclooxygenase-2 and 5-lipooxygenase. It works through several other mechanisms as well. Studies have shown that curcumin can modulate over 700 different genes.. Turmeric has antioxidants that can prevent free radical damage to cells. The antioxidant properties in turmeric come from curcuminoids. The antioxidants it delivers can be stronger than vitamin C, and up to eight times more powerful than vitamin E. It is three times as powerful as pine bark extract or grape seeds, and it is strong enough to fight the hydroxyl radical, which many think of as the most reactive oxidant.. The curcuminoids found in turmeric ...
Curcumin is a yellow-orange polyphenol derived from turmeric [Curcuma longa L. (Zingiberaceaerhizomes)]. Turmeric is a main ingredient of Indian, Persian, and Thai dishes. Extensive studies within the last half a century have demonstrated the protective action of curcumin in many disorders of the body. This study evaluated the protective effect of curcumin on dexamethasone-induced spermatogenesis defects in mice. Thirty-two NMRI mice were randomly divided into 4 groups. The first (control) group received 1 mL/day of distilled water by intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection for 7 days. The second group received 200 mg/kg/day of curcumin (Cur) for 10 days. Third group received 7 mg/kg/day of dexamethasone (Dex) for 7 days. Forth group received 200 mg/kg of curcumin for 10 days after dexamethasone treatment. Testicular histopathology, morphometric analysis, head sperm counting, and immunohistochemistry assessments were performed for evaluation of the dexamethasone and curcumin effects. Expression of ...
Turmeric is a spice indigenous to southeast Asia. It is the primary ingredient in curry powder, and its use is prevalent throughout Asian cooking. It has been used by Asian cultures for four thousand years, initially as a dyeing agent for its color. It was in Asia, too, that turmeric was first noted for its medicinal properties. Curcumin is a derivative of turmeric. All turmeric contains curcumin. It is one of several curcuminoids found in turmeric, along with other polyphenols. Turmeric contains between 2-6% curcumin. Curcumin is recognized today for its legion of health benefits and is likely the most potent, health-promoting component of turmeric.. Anti-Inflammatory Properties. Curcumin possesses powerful, anti-inflammatory properties, making it ideal for easing pain and diminishing inflammation. Science has shown in recent years that inflammation plays a key role in the incidence and progression of very serious diseases, such as heart disease and cancer. By reducing inflammation, curcumin ...
Its hard to consume enough curcumin in your diet unless it consists of turmeric, curry powder, mango ginger, or a supplement, says Kelli Fierras, a nutritionist based in New York. The challenge with curcumin, either alone or in turmeric, is that it is not easily absorbed by the body.. In order to absorb curcumin, it must be consumed together with black pepper or some kind of fat like olive oil or avocado fruit. If you plan to take it as a supplement, it is important to check if the supplement also contains ingredients that increase the bioavailability of curcumin.. Curcumin has many properties that are beneficial to health. According to studies, consumption of and supplementation with curcumin can reduce inflammation, improve cognitive function, and prevent cancer.. ...
The density functional theory (DFT) calculations were used to get information concerning the interaction of curcumin with pristine and N-doped TiO2 anatase nanoparticles. Three adsorption geometries of curcumin over the TiO2 anatase nanoparticles were studied in order to fully exploit the sensing properties of TiO2 nanoparticles. Curcumin molecule adsorbs on the fivefold coordinated titanium sites of the TiO2 nanoparticle because of the higher affinity of these sites with respect to the curcumin molecule. A preferred perpendicular adsorption of curcumin on the OC-substituted nanoparticle was found to be the most favorable conformation with the estimated adsorption energy of about -5.33 eV. The results suggest that the curcumin molecule favorably interacts with the N-doped TiO2 nanoparticle, that is, the interaction of curcumin with the pristine nanoparticle is less favorable in energy than the interaction with the N-doped one. The structural parameters such as bond lengths/angles and adsorption energies

TY - JOUR. T1 - Curcumin binds tubulin, induces mitotic catastrophe, and impedes normal endothelial cell proliferation. AU - Jackson, Steven J.T.. AU - Murphy, Laura L.. AU - Venema, Richard C.. AU - Singletary, Keith W.. AU - Young, Andrew J.. PY - 2013/10/1. Y1 - 2013/10/1. N2 - Curcumin, a component of turmeric spice that imparts flavor and color to curry, is thought to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in biological tissues. However, while such efficacies have been described in the context of carcinogenesis, the impact of curcumin on normal cell cycle regulation is poorly understood. Here, we provide evidence of curcumin toxicity in proliferating bovine aortic endothelial cells, at concentrations relevant to the diet and below those previously reported in cancer models. Upon confirming curcumins ability to upregulate hemeoxygenase-1 in a dose-dependent fashion, we found the minimally efficacious curcumin concentration to also inhibit endothelial cell DNA synthesis. ...
The common food spice tumeric has been used as a medicine for millennia in India (1). Curcumin (diferuloylmethane), a polyphenolic natural extract of tumeric, modulates many putative molecular cancer targets, including cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), and cyclin D1, and exhibits significant anti-inflammatory and antitumorigenic activity in various preclinical models (2-6). Based on this promising preclinical activity, clinical studies have finally begun to test curcumins chemopreventive effects in humans (7).. The safety and tolerability of oral curcumin quickly became evident in phase I studies, even when escalated to doses as high as 8 g per day (1, 7-9). However, the agents low systemic bioavailability also became apparent in phase-1 pharmacokinetic studies (8-10). Healthy volunteers who received a single curcumin dose of less than 10 g had undetectable levels of curcumin in the serum in one phase I study (8). Nonetheless, ...
Recent years have seen a growing trend in developing therapeutic agents from natural sources against various diseases. Curcumin, a yellow pigment from turmeric that shows a wide spectrum of biologic function, has proved to be a promising candidate as an anticancer agent. Curcumin induces cell death in different forms of human cancer cells. Accumulating experimental data indicate that curcumin exerts its cytotoxic effect either by acting as an antioxidant or as a pro-oxidant (12). In this study, we have investigated whether curcumin treatment generates oxidative stress in HuT-78 cells, and if so, then what are the important cell survival mechanisms affected by curcumin-generated oxidative stress?. We report here that curcumin through ROS-dependent mechanism perturbs multiple cell signaling molecules and eventually induces apoptosis in HuT-78 cells. This conclusion is based on several crucial observations. First, time-dependent accumulation of ROS was observed in curcumin-treated cells and ...
Human epidemiological and laboratory animal model studies have suggested that nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs reduce the risk of development of colon cancer and that the inhibition of colon carcinogenesis is mediated through the alteration in cyclooxygenase metabolism of arachidonic acid. Curcumin, which is a naturally occurring compound, is present in turmeric, possesses both antiinflammatory and antioxidant properties, and has been tested for its chemopreventive properties in skin and forestomach carcinogenesis. The present study was designed to investigate the chemopreventive action of dietary curcumin on azozymethane induced colon carcinogenesis and also the modulating effect of this agent on the colonic mucosal and tumor phospholipase A2, phospholipaseC1, lipoxygenase, and cyclooxygenase activities in male F344rats. At 5 weeks of age, groups of animals were fed the control(modified AIN-76A) diet or a diet containing 2000 ppm of curcumin.At 7 weeks of age, all animals, except those in ...
Curcumin is an up-and-coming drug of natural origin with multi-target properties, and it has exhibited efficient anticancer and antifungal activities alone or in combination with conventional chemotherapy drugs and antifungal agents. The dual pharmacological activities of curcumin may make it a good candidate for the prevention and treatment of cancer and its cancer-related invasive fungal infection related complications. Further investigation is necessary to clarify curcumins anticancer and antifungal mechanisms for better understanding. In spite of the useful biological activities of curcumin, its poor water solubility and low bioavailability hinders its clinical applications. Various nano-sized curcumin delivery systems, such as nanoparticles, nanospheres, solid lipid nanoparticles, micelles, and liposomes have been shown to overcome these shortcomings and significantly improve the anticancer and antifungal activities of curcumin. Many studies on curcumin and its nanoformulations are still ...
Curcumin is the main curcuminoid present in Curcuma longa and it has been previously reported to exhibit a wide range of pharmacological activities. In the present study, the inhibitory effects of curcumin on the inflammatory mediators released by Pam3CSK4-stimulated BV-2 microglial cells were investigated. The production of pro-inflammatory mediators and cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), were measured by enzyme‑linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The expression of inflammatory genes, including inducible nitric oxide synthase and cyclooxygenase-2, were further investigated using reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The effects of curcumin on heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2 (Nrf2), mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) signaling pathways were analyzed by western blotting. The results revealed that curcumin dose-dependently inhibited Pam3CSK4-induced ...
Curcumin is a natural molecule with proved anticancer efficacy on several human cancer cell lines. However, its clinical application has been limited due to its poor bioavailability. Nanocarrier-based drug delivery approaches could make curcumin dispersible in aqueous media, thus overtaking the limits of its low solubility. The aim of this study was to increase the bioavailability and the antitumoral activity of curcumin, by entrapping it into nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs). For this purpose here we describe the preparation and characterization of three kinds of curcumin-loaded NLCs. The nanosystems allowed the achievement of a controlled release of curcumin, the amounts of curcumin released after 24 h from Compritol-Captex, Compritol-Miglyol, and Compritol NLCs being, respectively, equal to 33, 28, and 18% w/w on the total entrapped curcumin. Considering the slower curcumin release profile, Compritol NLCs were chosen to perform successive in vitro studies on ovarian cancer cell lines. The ...
Quite a bit of research has been conducted on curcumin and diabetes.. Many of the studies have been on animals, but there is quite a body of evidence right now backing curcumin as a possible preventative and treatment for the disease (51, 52, 53, 54, 55).. This (55) study in particular is fascinating, as it was on individuals with pre-diabetes, rather than rats.. There were 240 patients in all.. They were divided randomly into two groups and observed for a period of nine months.. One group was given placebo capsules. The other group was given curcumin.. Following the nine-month treatment period, the researchers discovered that 16.4% of the placebo participants had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus.. None of the patients in the curcumin group had been diagnosed with it.. There were a number of improvements in the health markers for the curcumin group as well versus the placebo group.. Based on this evidence, the researchers were able to conclude that ​A 9-month curcumin intervention ...
Recently, several universities including the University of Saskatchewan initiated drug design and discovery programs to meet the shift in emphasis to translational research by the major funding organizations. The nascent Drug Design and Discovery Research Group at the University of Saskatchewan initiated an anticancer drug discovery program where one of the active projects focused on the development of curcumin analogues containing the 1,5-diaryl-3-oxo-1,4-pentadienyl group as anticancer agents. This became my Ph. D. dissertation research. My current work identifies the inadequacy in the current drug design and discovery model and provides initial direction for the future design of the curcumin analogues with better pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties. A battery of pharmacokinetic tests on NC 2083, a curcumin analogue that exhibits high in vitro efficacy but does not show any effect in vivo, suggested low permeability, high plasma protein binding and rapid partitioning into RBC as the ...
Curcumin is a polyphenolic compound derived from Curcumin longa L. There is growing body of data showing the antitumor effect of curcumin in different cancers; however, the molecular mechanism underlying of this inhibition in breast cancer is still remained to be elucidated. Here we investigated the antitumor activity of curcumin alone or in combination with paclitaxel or doxorubicin in MCF-7 cells in monolayer cell cultures and spheroids models. Moreover, the cytotoxic activity of three different forms of curcumin (phytosomal), phospholipidated curcumin, amorphous curcumin and turmeric oleoresin were evaluated, compared to unformulated curcumin. ...
Bcl-2 protein has been contributed with number of genes which are involved in oncogenesis. Among the many targets of Bcl-2, NF kappa B have potential role in induction of cell cycle arrest. Curcumin has potential therapeutic effects against breast cancer through multiple signaling pathways. In this study, we investigated the role of curcumin in induction of cell cycle arrest via regulating of NF kappa B and polyamine biosynthesis in wt and Bcl-2+ MCF-7 cells. To examine the effect of curcumin on cell cycle regulatory proteins, PI3K/Akt, NF kappa B pathways and polyamine catabolism, we performed immunoblotting assay. In addition, cell cycle analysis was performed by flow cytometry. The results indicated that curcumin induced cell cycle arrest at G2/M phase by downregulation of cyclin B1 and Cdc2 and inhibited colony formation in MCF-7 wt cells. However, Bcl-2 overexpression prevented the inhibition of cell cycle associated proteins after curcumin treatment. The combination of LY294002, PI3K ...

In a healthy human body, dosages of 6 gram daily will result to minor flatulence and a yellowing of the stool, each of which will stop occurring as soon as the consumption of the supplement stops. But, it is usually recognized that curcumin does not cause vital short-term toxicity at doses up to 8 gram a day. This dose of curcumin is not fully harmless in non-healthy populations; one clinical trial showed that in cancer patients who ingested curcumin at doses starting from 0.45 to 3.6 gram a day for 1 to 4 months, some adverse effects were seen which included nausea and diarrhea and a rise in serum alkaline phosphatase and lactate dehydrogenase. Doses of curcumin starting from 500 milligrams a day to 12 gram a day can also manufacture additional side effects, as well as a headache and rash. When given 4 gram a day of curcumin, side effects included diarrhea, abdominal distension, and gastroesophageal reflux sickness. Curcumin has been used at doses beyond 8 gram a day in situations in which no ...

The modifying effects of two natural products, curcumin and hesperidin, given during the initiation and postinitiation phases of oral carcinogenesis initiated with 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide (4-NQO) were investigated in male F344 rats and compared with that of β-carotene. At 6 weeks of age, rats were divided into experimental and control groups and fed the diet containing β-carotene, hesperidin, or curcumin at a dose of 0.5 g/kg diet (500 ppm). At 7 weeks of age, all animals except those treated with each test chemical alone and control groups were given 4-NQO (20 ppm) in the drinking water for 8 weeks to induce oral cancer. Seven days after the 4-NQO exposure, groups of animals fed the diets containing test chemicals were switched to the basal diet and continued on this diet until the end of the study. Starting 1 week after the stop of 4-NQO exposure, the groups given 4-NQO and a basal diet were switched to the diets containing β-carotene, hesperidin, and curcumin and maintained on these diets ...

This investigation aims to study the effect of curcumin on the proliferation, cycle arrest, and apoptosis of Epstein–Barr virus- (EBV-) positive nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells. EBV|sup|+|/sup| NPC cells were subjected to curcumin treatment. The cell viability was evaluated with the CCK-8. Cell cycle and apoptosis were analyzed by flow cytometry analysis. Expression (protein and mRNA) levels were detected with western blotting and quantitative real-time PCR, respectively. Curcumin efficiently reduced the viability of EBV|sup|+|/sup| NPC cells. Curcumin induced the cycle arrest of the HONE1 and HK1-EBV cells positive for EBV. Moreover, curcumin treatment promoted the NPC cell apoptosis, via the mitochondria- and death receptor-mediated pathways. Furthermore, curcumin decreased the expression of EBNA1 in the HONE1 and HK1-EBV cells and inhibited the transcriptional level of EBNA1 in the HeLa cells. Curcumin induced EBNA1 degradation via the proteasome-ubiquitin pathway. In addition,
Emerging coronaviruses represent serious threats to human and animal health worldwide, and no approved therapeutics are currently available. Here, we used Transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) as the alpha-coronavirus model, and investigated the antiviral properties of curcumin against TGEV. Our results demonstrated that curcumin strongly inhibited TGEV proliferation and viral protein expression in a dose-dependent manner. We also observed that curcumin exhibited direct virucidal abilities in a dose-, temperature- and time-dependent manner. Furthermore, time-of-addition assays showed that curcumin mainly acted in the early phase of TGEV replication. Notably, in an adsorption assay, curcumin at 40 µM resulted in a reduction in viral titres of 3.55 log TCID50 ml-1, indicating that curcumin possesses excellent inhibitory effects on the adsorption of TGEV. Collectively, we demonstrate for the first time that curcumin has virucidal activity and virtual inhibition against TGEV, suggesting that curcumin
INTRODUCTION: Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of the popular Indian spice turmeric, which is a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). The other two curcuminoids are desmethoxy curcumin and bis-desmethoxy curcumin. The curcuminoids are polyphenols and are responsible for the yellow color of turmeric. Curcumin can exist in at least two tautomeric forms, keto and enol. The enol formis more energetically stable in the solid phase and in solution1.. Curcumin is brightly yellow colored and may be used as a food colouring. Curcuminhas been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anticarcinogenic activities. It also has hepatoprotective and nephroprotective activities, suppresses thrombosis, protects against myocardial infarction, and has hypoglycemic and antirheumatic properties. Moreover, Curcumin has been shown in various animal models and human studies to be extremely safe even at very high doses 2-12. Curcumin exerts anti-inflammatory activity by inhibition ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Antipruritic effect of curcumin on histamine-induced itching in mice. AU - Lee, Han Kyu. AU - Park, Seok Bum. AU - Chang, Su-Youne. AU - Jung, Sung Jun. PY - 2018/9/1. Y1 - 2018/9/1. N2 - Itching is a common clinical symptom of skin disease that significantly affects a patients quality of life. Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) receptors of keratinocytes and peripheral nerve fibers in skin are involved in the regulation of itching as well as pain. In this study, we investigated whether curcumin, which acts on TRPV1 receptors, affects histamine-induced itching in mice, using behavioral tests and electrophysiological approaches. We found that histamine-induced itching was blocked by topical application of curcumin in a concentration-dependent manner. In ex-vivo recordings, histamine-induced discharges of peripheral nerves were reduced by the application of curcumin, indicating that curcumin acts directly on peripheral nerves. Additionally, curcumin blocked the ...
Results: There were no differences between curcumin and vehicle groups in all data examined before treatment. After treatment, echocardiography demonstrated that LV fractional shortening was significantly higher in curcumin groups than vehicle groups in both DS rats (curcumin: 48%, vehicle: 31%, p,0.05) and MI rats (curcumin: 30%, vehicle: 15%, p,0.0001). In both models, curcumin significantly decreased LV wall thickness and myocardial cell diameter. Compatible with these data, curcumin inhibited increases in LV BNP mRNA levels and plasma BNP levels in DS rats. Immunoprecipitation/Western blotting showed that the acetylated form of GATA4 and the p300/GATA4 complex in the heart markedly increased in DS rats compared with normotensive control rats. Curcumin inhibited GATA4 acetylation and disrupted the p300/GATA4 complex.. Conclusions: A natural compound, curcumin, partially prevents the development of HF in vivo, by inhibiting p300 HAT activiity. Thus, this non-toxic dietary compound will provide ...

Curcumin is a water soluble orange-yellow colored powder and is one of three curcuminoids found in the herb, turmeric (Curcuma longa). The other curcuminoids found in turmeric are demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Turmeric is a yellow Indian spice which has a long history of treatment for inflammatory conditions in Ayurvedic medicine in India. Curcumin is the main constituent of turmeric and was identified in 1910 by Lampe and Milobedzka. Curcumin has been known to treat a vast number of indications such as rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, dyslipidemia, Alzheimers disease, and even certain cancers.. This natural product is capable of treating many indications due to its number of properties. Curcumin has anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting numerous enyzmes and cytokines involved in the inflammatory response such as cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), lipoxygenase (LOX), inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), tumor necrosis factor (TNF), and numerous interleukins. By inhibiting ...

Each capsule provides 500 mg of turmeric extract standardized to contain 95% curcuminoids. Curcuminoids are the primary active constituents of turmeric that are responsible for its colour, and the therapeutic effects of turmeric.. For 4,000 years, turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been used in Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicines for its numerous health benefits. Curcumin, for example, is able to block more than 30 different inflammation pathways and can inhibit the production of pain-inducing compounds such as cyclooxygenase-2. Its no surprise, then, that turmeric has long been prized as a natural way to reduce joint stiffness and pain associated with osteoarthritis.. Turmerics many benefits also include providing antioxidant protection against free radicals for the maintenance of good health. Extra Strength Turmeric Curcumin from Webber Naturals is ideal ...
HPV: A new study published in EurekAlert concluded that Curcumin, an antioxidant, found in the curry spice Tumeric, will slow or limit the activity of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), that causes oral and cervical cancer. Authors say Tumeric has established antiviral and anti-cancer properties and according to our new findings, we could say that its good for oral health too. The researchers first noted the effect of curcumin on HPV and cervical cancer cells in 2005 and because oral cancer rates are rising they tested the same hypothesis on oral cancer. They found that Curcumin turns down the expression of HPV in infected oral cancer cells by down regulating the level of cellular transcription factors AP-1 and NF-KB and this suggests a new potential new role for Curcumin in cancer control..

Curcumin is a promising anti-cancer drug but its applications in cancer therapy are limited due to its poor solubility, short half-life and low bioavailability. In this study, curcumin loaded magnetic alginate / chitosan nanoparticles were fabricated to improve the bioavailability, uptake efficiency and cytotoxicity of curcumin to MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. Alginate and chitosan were deposited on Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles based on their electrostatic properties. The sizes of the nanoparticles (120-200 nm) were within the optimum range for drug delivery. Sustained curcumin release was obtained use the nanoparticles with the ability to control the curcumin release rate by altering the number of chitosan and alginate layers. Confocal fluorescence microscopy results showed that targeted delivery of curcumin with the aid of magnetic field were achieved. The FACS assay indicated that MDA-MB-231 cells treated with curcumin loaded nanoparticles had a 3-6 folds uptake efficiency to those treated with

A double-blind, randomized, clinical trial of 30 subjects will be carried out to develop procedures for testing the effectiveness of curcumin on slowing Alzheimers disease (AD) progression. Curcumin is a polyphenolic molecule extracted from turmeric and is widely and safely used as a yellow food coloring. Because of its strong anti-inflammatory activity, curcumin was tested in animal models of AD, where it significantly reduced levels of brain amyloid, oxidized proteins, and isoprostanes, and prevented cognitive deficits. AD patients will receive placebo, 1 g, or 4 g of curcumin daily for six months. All patients will also receive 120 mg ginkgo leaf extract daily. At 0, 1, 3, and 6 months of the study, a cognitive test will be performed, and blood samples will be analyzed for levels of isoprostane, amyloid beta protein, metals, and cholesterol. Curcumin and its metabolites will be measured in blood at 1 month. The primary objective for this first human study of curcumin in AD is to examine ...

We evaluated the effects of curcumin on the behaviour of mouse OECs to determine if it could be of use to further enhance the therapeutic potential of OECs. Curcumin, a natural polyphenol compound found in the spice turmeric, is known for its anti-cancer properties at doses over 10 μM, and often at 50 μM, and it exerts its effects on cancer cells in part by activation of MAP kinases. In contrast, we found that low-dose curcumin ...
Isolated curcumin is never fully absorbed by the body. This translates into the fact that other compounds in turmeric that are good for health remain unabsorbed and excreted from the body without even being absorbed, assimilated, and utilized. This effect is termed as the expensive pee syndrome by the manufacturer of this supplement.. It is because of this reason that the other traditional method is used. Full spectrum turmeric promises low potency and a low rate of absorption. The power of turmeric further increases as it is used in liquid form. Better potency and lower absorption rate mean that turmeric stays longer in the body, which means that the body can better absorb it than isolate curcumin.. The PuraThrive Liposomal Turmeric makes use of the full spectrum turmeric. To better understand the working mechanism of the supplement, the name is broken down into its components.. The liposome in the products name forms a unique substance. Liposomes are comprehended as little protection systems ...

The spice turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) has a long history of use as an anti-inflammatory agent. The active component curcumin induces a variety of diverse biological effects and forms a series of degradation and metabolic products in vivo. Our hypothesis is that the field of toxicogenomics provides tools that can be used to characterize the mode of action and toxicity of turmeric components and to predict turmeric-drug interactions. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were treated for 4 days with turmeric root containing about 3% curcumin (comparable to what people consume in the fresh or dried root) or a fraction of turmeric enriched for curcumin (∼74%) and liver tissue collected for gene expression analysis ...

Curcumin inhibits nitric oxide synthase gene expression. Curcumin is a naturally occurring, dietary polyphenolic phytochemical that has been shown to inhibit cancer among other things. With respect to inflammation, it inhibits the activation of free radical activated transcription factors, and reduces the production of proinflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF), interleukin-1 and interleukin-8). Upon inflammation, an enzyme is induced (nitric oxide synthase) that catalyzes the production of nitric oxide (NO), a molecule that may lead to carcinogenesis. In this study in mouse immune cells curcumin reduced the production of nitric oxide in a concentration-dependent manner. Furthermore, curcumin reduced nitric oxide expression in the livers of mice by 50-70%. Investigators were able to obtain potency at nanomoles per gram of body weight, even though it is believed that curcumin needs to be given at dosages that are unattainable through diet to produce an in vivo effect. ...

Turmeric and curcumin are often used interchangeably. Whats the difference between them?. Heres everything you need to know about the health benefits of turmeric.. Traditional Health Benefits of Turmeric. Turmeric is a spice that comes from the root of Curcuma longa, a beautiful flowering tropical plant native to India.. Turmeric has been used for healing for thousands of years going back to Ayurveda, Indias 5,000-year-old natural healing system. (1). Cooking residue found on pottery shards shows that people in parts of Asia cooked with turmeric 4,500 years ago. (2). It is one of several spices used to make curry powder, an essential ingredient in south Asian cuisine.. Its usually used dry, but the root can also be grated fresh like ginger.. This versatile spice was used traditionally to improve digestion, dissolve gallstones, relieve arthritis, and alleviate symptoms of allergies and colds. (3, 4 ...

There are few botanicals or herbs which can match the broad therapeutic profile and health benefits that curcumin and turmeric root offers.. Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric(Curcuma longa), which is a member of the ginger family.. Studies are finding curcumin to have an almost endless list of health benefits from potent anti-inflammatory properties, supporting the immune system, anti-microbial properties, acting as an anti-depressant, modulating the hpa-axis, liver support, and even anti-cancer/tumor properties.. One of the limiting issues with curcumin is its poor absorption. However, there are several methods that can increase the bioavailability and uptake of curcumin.. One is to pair curcumin/turmeric root with black pepper, which contains a compound called piperine, that can enhance the absorption of curcumin.. Another is to pair curcumin with a fat-loving compound such as phospholipids. This is known as a phyto-some, which is a complex of a natural ingredient and a ...
Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is an orange-yellow component of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a spice often found in curry powder. In recent years, considerable interest has been focused on curcumin due to its use to treat a wide variety of disorders without any side effects. It is one of the major curcuminoids of turmeric, which impart its characteristic yellow colour. It was used in ancient times on the Indian subcontinent to treat various illnesses such as rheumatism, bodyache, skin diseases, intestinal worms, diarrhoea, intermittent fevers, hepatic disorders, biliousness, urinary discharges, dyspepsia, inflammations, constipation, leukoderma, amenorrhea, and colic ...

Turmeric can be consumed in a variety of ways from sprinkling the spice on your meals to blending it in smoothies to taking it in supplement form. But one thing you must remember is that in order for your body to actually absorb the nutrients, turmeric must be consumed alongside some black pepper or a good fat, such as coconut oil.. Consumption vs. Absorption.. Unbeknownst to many, just because youre consuming a nutrient, it doesnt mean youre fully absorbing it. Theres a difference. For instance, if you were to consume turmeric in its root form, it only contains a curcumin concentration of about 3% meaning your body would only absorb up to 1% of the available curcumin.. Even turmeric supplements which have been prepared in such a way that there is a 95-percent concentration of curcumin doesnt allow your body to absorb more than 1%.. Thats just one aspect of the consumption/absorption conundrum. The other issue lies in the fact that turmeric is a fat-soluble food.. As mentioned above, in ...
The notion of curcumin being able to treat anxiety and depression could spare countless people the very negative side effects of antidepressants, which include weight gain, migraines, sexual dysfunction, drowsiness and suicidal behavior. However, for those who still feel the need to take such medications, it can enhance their efficacy and potentially reduce the amount that needs to be taken. In a 2015 study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology, for example, researchers noted that 2,000 mg per day of curcumin made pharmaceutical antidepressants more effective without bringing on side effects.. When you take curcumin for depression or anxiety, youre also getting physical benefits at the same time. For example, curcumin can help those with type 2 diabetes and even prevent those with pre-diabetes from developing the disease. It can also help to lower cholesterol and triglycerides, enhancing heart health, in addition to its anti-inflammatory properties.. Its important to note ...

Many molecules that are considered to be "dietary fiber" are so because humans lack the necessary enzymes to split the glycosidic bond and they reach the large intestine. Many foods contain varying types of dietary fibers, all of which contribute to health in different ways. Dietary fibers make three primary contributions: bulking, viscosity and fermentation.[49] Different fibers have different effects, suggesting that a variety of dietary fibers contribute to overall health. Some fibers contribute through one primary mechanism. For instance, cellulose and wheat bran provide excellent bulking effects, but are minimally fermented. Alternatively, many dietary fibers can contribute to health through more than one of these mechanisms. For instance, psyllium provides bulking as well as viscosity. Bulking fibers can be soluble (i.e., psyllium) or insoluble (i.e., cellulose and hemicellulose). They absorb water and can significantly increase stool weight and regularity. Most bulking fibers are not ...
In soils, it is assumed that larger amounts of phenols are released from decomposing plant litter rather than from throughfall in any natural plant community.[citation needed] Decomposition of dead plant material causes complex organic compounds to be slowly oxidized lignin-like humus or to break down into simpler forms (sugars and amino sugars, aliphatic and phenolic organic acids), which are further transformed into microbial biomass (microbial humus) or are reorganized, and further oxidized, into humic assemblages (fulvic and humic acids), which bind to clay minerals and metal hydroxides.[citation needed] There has been a long debate about the ability of plants to uptake humic substances from their root systems and to metabolize them.[citation needed] There is now a consensus about how humus plays a hormonal role rather than simply a nutritional role in plant physiology.[citation needed] In the soil, soluble phenols face four different fates. They might be degraded and mineralized as a carbon ...

True polyphenols from the tannin and other WBSSH types are routinely biosynthesized in the natural sources from which they derive; their 'chemical' syntheses (using standard "bench" organic chemical methods) were somewhat limited until the first decade of the new millennium because these syntheses involve challenging regioselectivity and stereoselectivity issues.[11] Early work focused on the achiral synthesis of phenolic-related components of polyphenols in the late 70's,[12] and the Nelson and Meyers synthesis of the permethyled derivative of the ubiquitous diphenic acid core of ellagitannins in 1994[13] followed by stereoselective synthesis of more complex permethylated structures such as a (+)-tellimagrandin II derivative by Lipshutz and coworkers in the same year,[14] and Itoh and coworker's synthesis of a permethylated pedunculagin with particular attention to axial symmetry issues in 1996.[15] The total synthesis of a fully unmasked polyphenol, that of the ellagitannin tellimagrandin I, ...
