Additional Benefits of Curcumin

Some researchers say curcumin inhibits angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels, which tumors use to nourish themselves as they spread. (Mod Med 1998 Jun:4(6); 376-83).

Scientists at M.D. Anderson Hospital, in Texas, wrote in 2003: Extensive research over the last 50 years has indicated curcumin can both prevent and treat cancer.

This anti-cancer potential of curcumin stems from its ability to suppress a proliferation of a wide variety of : tumor cells. down-regulate transcription factors FF-KappaB, Ap-1 and Egr-1. down regulate the expression of COX-2, LOX, NOS< MMp-g, uPA, TNF, chemokines, cell surface adhesion molecules and cyclin D1. down-regulate growth factor receptors such as (EGFR and HER-2) and inhibit the activity of c-Jun N terminal Kinase, protein tyrosine Kinases and protein serine/threonine Kinases.
