In America, more than one-third of adults suffer from obesity, and 16-percent of children are obese, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So, millions of people want or need to lose weight. One of the many tactics for boosting weight loss involves adding immune and fat fighting spices to your diet. Turmeric is one of the newly proven spices to have the potential to help with weight loss.
Turmeric comes from the plant Curuma longa, a gold-colored spice used commonly in India for health care purposes and food preservation. Curcumin, which give turmeric its yellow color, was discovered to have many therapeutic properties during the 20th century, including antioxidant, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anticancer and antifungal, according to the article Curcumin: The Indian Solid Gold, published in the journal Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology. In 2009, researchers at Tufts University discovered a link between this chemical in turmeric and weight loss.
The Curcumin in Turmeric provides powerful antioxidant activity and is responsible for its vibrant yellow color. The antioxidant activity from Curcumin in Pure Tumeric helps neutralize free radicals. No artificial colors. No artificial flavors. No preservatives. No yeast, starch.
Pure Tumeric formula may help prevent the re-growth of fat after weight loss. Weight gain results from the growth and expansion of fat tissue through the formation of new blood vessels, according to information from the Tufts University study published in the Journal of Nutrition in May 2009. The study showed that curcumin, derived from turmeric, that was given to mice and injected into fat cells inhibited the growth of new blood vessels within fat, reducing weight gain.
The best way to lose weight involves taking in fewer calories and exercising regularly, advises Dr. Michael Hall, a family practitioner in St. Marys, Pennsylvania. However, he states that some spices, such as black pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cumin, mustard, turmeric, ginger and cinnamon, may cause you to burn more calories for a short period of time after consumption due to their effect on your metabolism.

Turmeric can be used in the treatment of diabetes by helping to moderate insulin levels. It also improves glucose control and increases the effect of medications used to treat diabetes. Another significant benefit is turmeric's effectiveness in helping reduce insulin resistance, which may prevent the onset of Type-2 diabetes.
