Curcumin is derived from the turmeric spice which has been infamous for its health benefits throughout India for centuries. And it’s now available in pretty much any grocery store worldwide! And yes, it’s absolutely delicious in a curry, but it does much more than that!
When used as part of a health regimen, studies have revealed that curcumin is a very efficient supplement that can support weight loss by reducing inflammation, increasing metabolism, and more.
Everyone knows that digesting more calories than you burn is a one track road to weight gain, so “dieting” by consuming less calories is one of the most obvious solutions. However there are also other factors that contribute to weight gain such as hormones, metabolism, inflammation, the kind of food you’re eating, and your lifestyle.
Research by the European Journal of Nutrition has found that it becomes easier for your body to lose weight when it’s not constantly battling inflammation. Obesity can create low-grade inflammation throughout the body which further contributes to chronic conditions such as Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease and diabetes. Curcumin has been proven to be effective in fighting this inflammation.
This natural solution contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to target weight gain and prevent the onset of these health issues. It helps to lower insulin resistance (a common cause of weight gain), reduce cholesterol, and other symptoms associated with obesity such as hyperglycemia. It’s very difficult for your body to lose weight when you’re chronically inflamed. Once the inflammation in your body is gone, it’ll be much easier to lose weight on a healthy diet and exercise program.
Less Fatty Tissue
A 2009 study by Tufts University found that curcumin could play a role in suppressing the growth of fatty tissue. Adipose (fatty) tissues store fat cells in the body and these tissues are supplied with oxygen and nutrients in a process called angiogenesis. Curcumin inhibits the growth of fatty tissue thanks to its anti-angiogenic properties which help to inhibitor adipose tissue growth and promote weight loss. In fact, in a 30-day study of 44 people who couldn’t lose weight, a twice daily curcumin supplement led to notable reductions in body weight, body mass index (BMI), and waist and hip circumference. Further studies have revealed the benefits of curcum in weight management in obesity and the management of metabolic disorders.
Turmeric-derived curcumin has a natural cleansing effect on the body and helps to flush out any built up toxins in the liver when taken daily. The liver is super important in fat metabolism so it’s important that it functions optimally to improve the outcome of any weight loss endeavours.
Thermogeneiss is a metabolic process where fat is burned by your central nervous system to maintain your body temperature, i.e your body burns calories for energy expenditure, promoting weight loss. Curcumin increases the rate of thermogenesis which means more fat is burned to encourage weight loss.
