Murfreesboro Chiropractic Nutrition Idea: Black Pepper & Turmeric

Black Pepper. Turmeric. Just spices? No! Black pepper and turmeric have lengthy histories as seasonings and medicines.  Such spicy histories! Most Chiropractic Clinic discloses some of the current reports about the benefits of black pepper and turmeric: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and even anti-cancer. Murfreesboro chiropractic patients are healthy people often seeking a healthier approach to disease prevention and care. Most Chiropractic Clinic adds some spice to this healthier way of life and Murfreesboro back pain relief!

Most Chiropractic Clinic seeks out healthier approaches to living just as chiropractic demonstrates itself to be for our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients and families at Most Chiropractic Clinic. Including some spice is one such way. Research coming out of South Asia and Middle East countries - where spices are key to traditional foods of the region – shows evidence of cure for centuries even while deficient in scientific explanation as of yet. Biologists today are studying spices’ medicinal value and reporting support for the antimicrobial effects they have and just how they may stop the progression of microorganisms. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic would think that Murfreesboro chiropractic families and patients would embrace the bonus benefit of spicy food’s value!

The spices black pepper (peperine) and turmeric (curcumin and curcuminoids) work well together. Asian foods have always been tastier and more full of healthful benefits! Curcumin and other curcuminoids – chemical compounds in turmeric – offer natural benefits like being anti-fungal, anti-oxidant, antiseptic, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory. Black pepper – akin to capsaicin – improves the power of turmeric. Curcumin is not very bioavailable, so black pepper allows it to be absorbed better.  One study explains that if 2 grams of curcumin are taken alone, there isn’t a noticeable serum level reaction. If it is taken with 2mg of black pepper, its absorbability increased 2000%! Together, black pepper and turmeric offer to control obesity, high cholesterol and diabetes; ease peptic ulcers (by preventing H-pylori bacteria growth); avert some cancers, reduce pain even potentially neuropathic pain (by starting transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1); and alleviate inflammatory conditions (rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and the like). (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic is well aware of inflammation’s role in back pain whether it’s chronic or acute. Murfreesboro inflammation takes part in disease and in back pain. Murfreesboro chiropractic care by spinal manipulation and nutrition advice helps back pain and related inflammation.

Some of the most amazing research on the value of spices like black pepper and turmeric point to their effects on prevention and treatment of cancers. Lung, liver, breast, stomach, colorectal, cervix and prostate cancers appear to react well to black pepper, turmeric, black cumin, ginger, garlic, saffron and chili pepper. These spices have bioactive compounds – curcumin, thymoquinone, piperine, capsaicin - that stimulate cell death, halt tumor creation, movement and attack, and prepare tumors to be sensitive to radiation and chemotherapy treatments. (3) When a Murfreesboro cancer patient is dealing with cancer, these responses to spices like black pepper and turmeric are certainly good!
