According to greenmedinfo.com, a form of turmeric extract (curcumin) may help.
A compelling new study published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism has found that a daily dose of a novel form of turmeric extract (curcumin) significantly improved the functional state of the blood vessels of healthy adults within two months.
The randomized, controlled, double-blind parallel prospective study involved fifty-nine healthy adults who were assigned to either a placebo, 50 mg (50 mg), or 200 mg (200 mg) curcumin, for 8 weeks.
The study provided background on what is believed to be a primary underlying cause of cardiovascular disease, namely, the inability of the inner lining of blood vessels (endothelium) to dilate fully as a consequence of mostly symptomless damage that can start early in life:
Nor is turmeric extract the only food-based approach to addressing and even reversing cardiovascular disease. For instance, we have reported on avocado’s ability to neutralize the artery constricting properties of a single, hamburger meal. Also, pomegranate’s ability to reverse plaque build up in the arteries is also well documented and highly compelling. The point is that simple dietary interventions, using time-tested, culinary spices, can have powerful impacts on disease risk, health and well-bing.
There is also a vast body of published literature in existence, a good portion of which can now be found on the GreenMedInfo.com database, that turmeric has literally hundreds of health benefits.
