Curcumin May Help Overcome Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis
According to a study published in the online journal Wiley by the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology, new research has surfaced indicating that curcumin, found in turmeric and known as one of the main components of curry powder, may help fight drug-resistant tuberculosis.
It is known that turmeric has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and perhaps even anticancer properties. Now you can add drug-resistant tuberculosis to the list.
“The ability of curcumin to modulate the immune response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis points to a potential new tuberculosis treatment that would be less prone to the development of drug resistance.”
