Curcumin Reduces the Size of Blood Clots

By: Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist

Curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory nutrient with many health benefits.  Numerous studies over the past few years suggest that this Indian spice helps obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and heart function – as well as protecting against many forms of cancer.  New research indicates that curcumin1 can reduce the size of blood clots.

There are many factors in today’s world, ranging from pollution to poor diet to other health issues that promote inflammation in your circulation and are thus pro-clotting factors – increasing the risk for stroke.

One way to boost your health and protect yourself is to have nutrients that help dissolve little “mini clots,” in essence helping to keep your circulatory system free of trash and debris.  Enzymes like bromelain are natural trash eaters taken by many indivdiuals for this purpose.  This new research shows that curcumin is one more tool in your arsenal of natural remedies to help keep your circulatory system flowing along in better condition.
