◆Strengthen immunity:

Research by Shang Wei et al. found that curcumin can adjust the activity of T cells, B cells, macrophages, natural killer cells and dendritic cells, and has an immunoregulatory effect. It can also regulate the expression and mediation of a variety of inflammatory cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-1, interleukin-2, interleukin-6 and so on.

The results of a clinical study by Jiang Haijing et al. (104 cases of pediatric patients with allergic rhinitis) showed that the total effective rate of treatment with budesonide alone was 67.31%, while the total effective rate of treatment with curcumin combined with budesonide was 86.54%, and the treatment effect was significantly improve.

◆Protect the liver:

The liver is the most functional organ of the human body. In addition to eliminating various endogenous and exogenous toxins, the liver is also an important metabolic center with functions such as energy production and nutrient synthesis. Research by Hu Guangmin and others found that alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), triglyceride (TG) content, and tumor necrosis factor-α ( TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) index levels were significantly reduced, indicating that Turmeric Extract can reduce liver damage and has a good intervention effect on alcoholic fatty liver in mice.

◆Improve stomach health:

Turmeric Extract has a good therapeutic effect on a variety of stomach injuries and diseases, and plays an important role in stomach health. Fu Ting et al.'s research on curcumin in the treatment of gastric-related diseases found that curcumin can reduce oxidative stress, inhibit mucosal epithelial cell apoptosis, enhance mucosal epithelial cell resistance, and prevent gastric damage caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It has a therapeutic effect; it can alleviate the symptoms of inflammation and indigestion caused by gastric Helicobacter pylori infection; it can reduce gastric acid secretion and oxidative stress, and it can have a good therapeutic effect on acute gastric mucosal lesions.
