Turmeric and IBS

Do you often find yourself with digestion discomfort? Are you continually battling bloating, cramping, changes in bowel movements, or unable to tolerate certain food? Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, affects between 25 to 45 million Americans and you may be one of them. While causes of IBS are still unclear, leaving sufferers without a known cure, treating and managing symptoms is the best course of action.  While many manage their digestive issues, including diarrhea and constipation, others prefer to turn to holistic approaches.

Inflammation goes hand-in-hand with digestive issues, and IBS is no exception. By treating the source of the inflammation, IBS symptoms become more manageable. Known as a powerful anti-inflammatory, turmeric has shown promising results in initial studies of its effects on IBS symptoms. While a 2004 study reported improvement after taking two turmeric supplements a day for eight weeks, additional studies are still needed.

Turmeric benefits are primarily attributed to curcumin; one of many curcuminoids found in the turmeric root. Curcumin has a variety of medicinal properties, making turmeric a widely used alternative to traditional medicine. While it combats inflammation, it is also known to ease the pain, soreness, nausea, and more.
