Curcuma Longa/Cúrcuma is a small perennial herb native to India bearing many rhizomes on its root system which are the source of its culinary spice known as Turmeric (Cúrcuma – rizoma secco in polvere) and its medicinal extract called Curcumin (Cúrcuma extracto refinado).

Botanical Classification by Carolus Linnaeus:

  • Family: Zingiberaceae (Ginger, Zenzero, Gingembre, Jengibre, Gengibre)
  • Genus: Curcuma
  • Species: Longa
  • Scientific Name: Curcuma Longa Linnaeus (curcuma longa l)

Distribution:

  • India (especially Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu): 600,000 tons annually .
  • Southeast Asia

The Spice Curcuma/Turmeric

  • Description: a yellow/brown powder made from the dried rhizome of Curcuma Longa. It has a slight earthy flavor and little aroma. It is known for its color and for its health-giving properties.
  • Benefits of Turmeric: a Singapore study of the elderly demonstrated a positive connection between turmeric/curry consumption and cognitive function. People who ate curry often (more than once a month) or ate it occasionally (once or more in 6 months) performed significantly better in mental tests than did those who ate curry less than once a month. (American Journal of Epidemiology 11/2006.)

Use:

  • in Curry powder, Curcuma is added to the mix of spices which usually consist of: coriander, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, chili, mustard seeds, black peppercorns and salt.
  • as a tea (for example in Okinawa): turmeric can be added to hot water and then strained (with touch of ginger and lemon juice); it can also be added to milk and simmered.

Description of the Extract: Curcumin/Curcuma

Curcuma is a yellow-orange polyphenol. In its usual form it is a dry yellow powder that is oil-soluble. Curcuma is without flavor and aroma. Its strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics are its most obvious medicinal properties.

Curcuma is derived from the root of the Curcuma Longa plant first by drying and powdering, to create the spice called Turmeric, then by a solvent extraction. The resulting refined powder is 18 times stronger in the essential ingredients than is the common spice.

Research on Curcuma has been focused on Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Cancer and Diabetes. In laboratory experiments on rodents, Curcuma can break up the Alzheimer’s amyloid-beta polymers, suppress arthritic inflammation, induce apoptosis in some cancer types and improve insulin sensitivity. Human trials of Curcuma for some illnesses are underway.

Technical Information:

  • Chemical Formula: C21H20O6; Molecular Weight: 368.38
  • Metabolites: Curcumin-sulphate, Curcumin-glucuronide; Catabolites: Vanillic acid and Ferulic acid.
  • Three Molecular Forms: curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin.
  • Molecular structure: it is a dimer of vanillin (2 molecules of vanillin conjoined).

Medicinal Properties of Curcumin:

Curcuma Longa extract has significant effects in the laboratory on arthritis, amyloid-beta (Alzheimer’s polymers), cancer and diabetes. It has the following properties:

  • anti-oxidant;
  • Arthritis: inhibits inflammation, possibly inhibiting something in the pathway of Cox-2 but not Cox-2 itself; not only does it not cause ulcers but is currently being used experimentally as a treatment for ulcers in western countries.
  • Alzheimer’s Disease: inhibits formation of, and breaks down, Amyloid-beta oligomers (entwined fibres) and aggregates (lumps) in rodents;
  • blood thinning: reduces clotting and clinging together of platelets;
  • Cancer: causes apoptosis (death) of various cancer cell types including skin, colon, forestomach, duodenum and ovary in the laboratory; we await clinical trials;
  • inhibits viral and fungal disease;
  • inhibits bacteria including Helicobacter Pylori;
  • Diabetes: reduces diabetes in rodents; we await clinical trials.
  • Summary: “Curcumin has been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer activities and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses.” – Source: Adv Exp Med Biol. 2007;595:1-75.

Traditional and Modern Uses of Curcuma Longa

  • In India, Curcuma Longa has been in use as a culinary ingredient since 3000 BC. It is used as a food coloring for curry and as a preservative for food. As a medicine it is used to treat a wide variety of ailments including stomach ache, skin problems, muscular problems and arthritis. Curcuma Longa has also been used as a clothing dye and as a cosmetic. Indians are thought to consume between 80 and 200 mg per day of Curcuma Longa extract. India as a whole consumes 480,000 tons of turmeric annually.
  • In China it has been used as a topical analgesic, and for colic, hepatitis, ringworm and chest pain.
  • In Europe it is used in many foods as a coloring in mustard, cheese, margarine, beverages and cakes. In the recent past it has been used for dyspepsia, chronic anterior uveitis and Helicobacter pylori bacteria.
  • It is generally recognized as safe by the FDA of the United States.
  • Availability: in capsule form as a health supplement and as the culinary spice Turmeric.

As of October 2011 there are more than 4300 articles cited by Pubmed on the subject of Curcuma Longa products including 1604 on cancer, 66 on arthritis, 181 on alzheimer’s disease and 151 on diabetes. This demonstrates that Curcuma Longa is now being used in new ways.

The Inside Story of Cannabidiol – What are the Benefits of CBD?

What is CBD oil? What are the benefits of CBD? How does CBD work? This is The Inside Story of Cannabidiol about the benefits and physiological effects of CBD on the human body. A couple of years ago a remarkable thing happened when CBD oil became legal in all 50 states. If you remove CBD from the THC coming from the cannabis plant or the hemp plant, CBD oil is now legal to use as a nutritional supplement. Since that time of course, the market for cannabis oil has exploded with interest. Truly, CBD is not just another nutritional supplement. This short conversation is going to describe the intense scientific research that is going on around the world on the benefits of CBD, or cannabidiol, and why it is so important for human physiology.

In our actual physiology where does CBD work? We are going to travel into our physiology. Right into our central nervous system. We are going to see at the level of individual cells that the cell surface is covered with these green receptors. These are receptors for CBD. When the CBD binds to that receptor it sends a message into the cell which travels all the way down into the nucleus of the cell where the intelligence of our entire physiology is contained in our chromosomes. Here a chromosome will unwind and you are going to see the DNA that contains the codes for everything that our body does. This is like the software that runs our physiology. Genes are the codes for every protein that our bodies make. Including all the signaling molecules that run our physiology. Such as our neurotransmitters that run our nervous system. Our hormones that run our endocrine system and our cytokines that run our immune system.

So we see that throughout our physiology we have receptors specifically designed to bind with cannabidiol and CBD has its effect on the nucleus of our cells where proteins are being made. Cannabidiol modulates the transcription of over 1100 genes that make the signaling molecules that naturally reduce inflammation in our central nervous system and throughout our immune system. Restoring homeostasis to both our immune and central nervous systems.

Bottom line… One of the benefits of cannabidiol is that it causes a cascade of Homeostasis through our entire central nervous system and our entire immune system. Why is this happening? As I mentioned before we have receptors in our body for CBD. This is called the endo-cannabinoid system. Back in medical school we didn’t’t even know about the endo-cannabinoid system. It was discovered in the 1990’s by Dr. Rafael Mechoulan from the Hebrew University in Israel. So the endo-cannabinoid system is a network of cells throughout our body that have receptors for CBD. In fact, there are more receptors for CBD in our body than any other kind of receptor. So the endo-cannabinoid system is truly the largest network of its kind throughout our entire physiology. Among other things Dr. Mechoulam also discovered that we make our own cannabinoids in or body. This is Anandamide and 2AG. Those two are natural cannabinoids that our bodies make and bind to our CBD receptors. Our bodies are filled with CBD receptors.

What kind of symptoms what kind of stress do all these things cause to us? If your immune system is inflamed you might be suffering from autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, inflamed bowel disease, lupus and thyroid. Or fibromyalgia or even multiple sclerosis. And you skin, psoriasis and eczema and all sorts of other chronic infections. Do you realize that many of things didn’t even exist 100 or 150 years ago. Incidences of these sorts of diseases is growing throughout the last century.

Now lets take a look at your central nervous system. If it is inflamed what types of things might you be suffering from? Brain fog, migraines, epilepsy, anxiety and PTSD, ADD, ADHD, autism and insomnia. Again, 100 or 150 years ago these kinds of symptoms, these kind of diseases where rare. If you are suffering from any of these conditions, any of these symptoms, CBD might provide you with tremendous healing, tremendous relief, right through your own natural endo-cannabinoid system that brings homeostasis both to your immune system and to your central nervous system.

In conclusion, what have we learned from this conversation? That health is achieved through physiological homeostasis right through our natural endo-cannabinoid systems. Therefore, CBD is an indispensable catalyst for optimal health.

Turmeric Curcumin Reprogramming Cancer Cell Death

It is estimated that the human body consists of ten or so trillion cells. Almost all of these cells get turned over within approximately 100 days. That means we’re like a new person every three months. We reinvent ourselves physically. And since we’re physically made of air, water, and food—those are the only inputs—we are what we eat, literally and physically. In a sense our body has to rebuild itself every three months with the building materials we deliver to it through our stomach. Our mouths are like the access road to the continual construction site of our body. Trucks roll in three times a day. What do we want them to deliver? Some shoddy cheap stuff we scrounged around for or bought at the discount outlets that’s just going to fall apart? Or do we want to build our foundation solid? We are each walking inside the greatest known architectural structures in the universe. Let’s not ruin such grand blueprints by consuming crap.

We only own the biological real estate we’re born with, so if we need to rebuild every three months, we also need a wrecking crew. If we’re replacing ten trillion cells every hundred days, that means we have to kill off about 100 billion cells every day. Out with the old, in with the new.

We do that primarily through “apoptosis,” pre-programmed cell death (from the Greek ptosis, meaning “falling”, and apo, “away from”). For example, we all used to have webbed fingers and toes. Literally. Each one of us did in the womb until about four months, when apoptosis kicked in, and the cells in the webbing kill themselves off to separate our fingers.

Dr Drew discusses Blackseed (Nigella Sativa)

Black Seed (scientific name: Nigella Sativa) is known around the world and throughout history for its restorative and medicinal qualities. Truly Black Seed is one of nature’s greatest gifts, and that is probably why it is referred to as the “seed of blessing.” The ancient Egyptians and Assyrians recognized the power of this healing herb as early as 3000 years ago. Found in the tomb of Tutankhamen, “King Tut”, Black Seed was thought to help the Pharaohs in the afterlife. Physicians as far back as the 1st century used Black Seed to treat a variety of ailments and sicknesses.

Black Seed grows wild in the Mediterranean but has been cultivated in the Arabian Peninsula, Asia and Africa. It’s oil, which has a rich composition of more than 100 compounds including essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

Black Seed is remarkable in that it is one of the few natural, herbal remedies that has been studied by the scientific community and found to have tremendous potential benefit. Today, more and more medical scientists and professionals are recognizing the power of this amazing little seed. It was recently recommended as an herbal remedy by the World Health Organization. Research continues to show the positive results of Black Seed, and it continues to generate excitement throughout the medical industry.

Black Seed it not commonly found in liquid nutrition products. NuVerus is the first company we know of to focus on this remarkable SuperFood. The Oil of the Black Seed has a strong pepper flavor, which explains why all the other products on the market have excluded it. NuVerus has used advanced manufacturing techniques to combine the Black Seed Oil in a delicious and comprehensive formula with SuperFoods from around the world.
