Cancer Prevention

Curcumin’s antioxidant properties gives added protection to the colon cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA—a significant benefit particularly in the colon where cell turnover is rapid. Because of their frequent replication, mutations in the DNA of colon cells result  the formation of cancerous cells much more quickly. Curcumin  helps the body to destroy mutated cancer cells,  A primary way which curcumin does  by enhancing liver function. other suggested mechanisms by which it may protect against cancer development include inhibiting the synthesis of a protein thought to be instrumental in tumor formation and preventing the development of additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth.
