Turmeric Extract 100% Effective At Preventing Type 2 Diabetes, ADA Journal Study Finds

Turmeric Extract 100% Effective At Preventing Type 2 Diabetes, ADA Journal Study Finds | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

A remarkable human clinical study published in the journal Diabetes Care, the journal of the American Diabetes Association, revealed that turmeric extract was 100% successful at preventing prediabetic patients from becoming diabetic over the course of a 9-month intervention.

 

Performed by Thailand researchers, the study's primary object was to assess the efficacy of curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric which gives the spice its golden hue, in delaying the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a prediabetic population.


Via Sepp Hasslberger, Dorothy M Neddermeyer, PhD

CDC statistics say that at least 40% of the US population, aged 40-74, exhibit pre-diabetic conditions, so the implications are profound indeed.

As of 2011, 1.3 billion tons of food, about one third of the global food production, are lost or wasted annually. Loss and wastage occurs on all steps in the food supply chain. In low-income countries, most loss occurs during production, while in developed countries much food – about 100 kilograms (220 lb) per person and year – is wasted at the consumption stage.
