6. Diabetes Management
Adding turmeric to your daily menu is the best natural treatment for high blood sugar and reversing insulin resistance.
In 2009, a study published in Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications and conducted at the Auburn University evaluated the ability of turmeric to reverse diabetes.
It was found that turmeric is 400 times more potent than Metformin, a common drug prescribed to diabetics, in activating AMPK, which improves insulin sensitivity and helps in reversing type 2 diabetes.
Curcumin corrects the causes of diabetes and reverses issues related to insulin resistance and hyperglycemia.
For instance, let’s take diabetic neuropathy and retinopathy. Diabetes causes severe complications, and one of the most common is damaged blood vessels, which can cause blindness. Another study found that curcumin can delay this complication, due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
