Research shows that Turmeric may help reduce inflammation
and increase bile production and secretion
Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and has numerous medicinal uses. It is one of the most research herbs. It is especially valued due to it's ability to stop the cycle of inflammation. Turmeric may also be helpful in cases of a low-functioning or low-ejecting gallbladder.4. Proceed slowly with a low-function, starting with one capsule a day and working up to what is comfortable.
Turmeric has also been shown to be effective in eradicating H. Pylori.

Curcumin longa is the name of the turmeric plant. Curcumin is the main constituent in the turmeric rhizome and has had extensive research done on it. It is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
"In recent years, extensive in vitro and in vivo studies suggested curcumin has anticancer, antiviral, antiarthritic, anti-amyloid, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties… due to its efficacy and regulation of multiple targets, as well as its safety for human use, curcumin has received considerable interest as a potential therapeutic agent for the prevention and/or treatment of various malignant diseases, arthritis, allergies, Alzheimer's disease, and other inflammatory illnesses."1.
*Turmeric (curcumin) has been found to lower both fat and glucose levels in the blood, to decrease body weight, and to improve insulin resistance in rats.2.
Both obesity and type 2 diabetes are known to coincide with significant inflammation contributing to these diseases. In this study, curcumin (turmeric) reversed many of the inflammatory and metabolic derangements associated with obesity and improves glycemic control.3.
"...curcumin increases gallbladder contraction."4.
Curcumin has anti-protazoal and anti-parasitic properties.5.
A study by the Indian Institute of Chemical Biology discovered that curcumin was able to eradicate Helicobactor Pylori infection in mice by suppressing two inflammatory molecules that are associated with Helicobacter Pylori infection.
