Nutrition Tip

I don’t know about you, but I try to sneak turmeric in as much as possible in my culinary ventures. Turmeric has been studied for decades due to the many, profound health benefits of this bright orange spice. Lately I have been interested in studying herbs that support blood sugar regulation and turmeric is also on blood sugar stabilizing herb/spice list.

Numerous studies have reported the hypoglycemic (sugar lowering) effect of turmeric. Turmeric targets various organs, cells, genes, enzymes, and processes and regulates glucose levels in multiple ways:

The enzyme insulin responsible for glucose regulation is produced by the β-cells in the pancreas. Turmeric enhances the functioning of these cells and stimulates insulin secretion. By increasing the production of insulin, it helps in correcting abnormal glucose levels. Turmeric improves insulin sensitivity and reduces glucose intolerance which results in better metabolism and utilization of glucose by the body. Curcumin also inhibits the production of glucose by the liver with 400 times increased activity compared to drugs like metformin.

Herbs/spices are natures medicine – turmeric is no exception! I hope you can also start adding this spice to your food!
