Curcumin and Its Heart-Healthy Impact

  • Curcumin and Heart-Healthy Impact

Best known as the substance in turmeric lending the yellow color to curry spice, curcumin has previously been shown to produce antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and lipid-lowering effects. One study used a lab animal model of high cholesterol in order to find out how curcumin impacts heart health. Rabbits that were fed a high-cholesterol diet with curcumin supplements for 8 weeks experienced smaller arterial plaques and less buildup in the aorta, compared to those animals fed the high-cholesterol diet without curcumin supplements. Authors of the study say their results showed that curcumin promotes less arterial clogging by lowering serum lipids and cholesterol-causing low-density lipoproteins.
