Turmeric May Lower Blood Sugar

Curcumin, a natural compound that makes turmeric yellow, can provide benefits for people with diabetes as stated by a recent study.

Researchers in Korea provided additional food curcumin for six weeks for diabetic rats while the non-diabetics was given extra food without curcumin. As a result, diabetic mice fed curcumin supplements, the blood sugar levels were lower than the mice which didn't have diabetes.

If this is true in humans, then the diabetics should often eat foods rich in turmeric such as curry or turmeric acid. Just need to be careful with sugar consumption.
