Spinal cord injuries usually occur suddenly. A traumatic blow in the spine is enough to fracture or dislocate the vertebrae.
Spinal cord injuries can cause fractures and compression on the vertebrae, which can break or destroy nervous cells which carry the signals up and down between the spinal cord, brain and the rest of the body.
Spinal cord injuries can cause devastating and permanent damage, but recent study suggests that one particular spice can be the key for safe and effective recovery. We are talking about turmeric.
The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, has many health benefits. It is strong anti-inflammatory agent. Some studies even proved that it is more powerful than the anti-inflammatory drugs. It blocks the compounds known as NF-kB which play important role in many chronic diseases.
Curcumin is also powerful antioxidant which is very effective in neutralization of the free radicals. Curcumin disables the activity of antioxidant enzymes in our body, and doubles up the intensity in the fight against free radicals. This allows direct blockage of the free radicals in the damaged cells and stimulation of antioxidant mechanisms in our body, which results with strengthen immune system.
Curcumin is related with improved brain function and reduced risk of heart and brain diseases. It also prevents and heals cancer. Many scientists claim that curcumin is effective natural cure for arthritis and depression.
