Turmeric Clinical Studies
"The curcumin suppression of angiogenesis in adipose tissue together with its effect on lipid metabolism in adipocytes may contribute to lower body fat and body weight gain. Our findings suggest that dietary curcumin may have a potential benefit in preventing obesity."

"In the United States of America, Turmeric has been granted “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) status by the FDA. Turmeric has been used traditionally for almost every human ailment and many of these historic uses have been scientifically validated with application in modern times."

" The primary biologically active constituent of turmeric is the polyphenol, curcumin, an orange-yellow powder that has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which, in part, may contribute to curcumin’s potential to prevent such conditions as cancer, Alzheimer disease, heart disease, and arthritis, to name a few."
