Spinal cord injury can have devastating, and often irreversible effects. Conventional treatment relies on steroid drugs and surgery with lackluster results. What if an extract of turmeric works better, and is safer? 

A promising new study published in the journal ‘Neurology Research International’, entitled “The Potential of Curcumin In Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury”, suggests that the ancient Indian spice turmeric, and its primary polyphenol curcumin, may provide victims of spinal cord injury (SCI) a safer and more effective approach than conventional treatment which relies primarily on surgery and corticosteroids, a class of anti-inflammatory drugs notorious for adverse health effects.

Curcumin has been validated in hundreds of studies to have immense value in treating a wide range of inflammatory-based diseases. You can use the GreenMedInfo curcumin research portal to view the primary literature on the topic, where you will find over 200 studies demonstrating curcumin’s potent anti-inflammatory properties.

Despite this wealth of already published research demonstrating curcumin’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties, the new study was the first to systematically review all the available data on curcumin’s effect’s on spinal cord injury, enabling a clearer picture of its value in relationship to standard therapies.
