Turmeric for Diabetic Therapy
Their study reveals Nano-curcumin in turmeric is a useful weapon against diabetic cataract.
Turmeric, a vital ingredient in Indian cuisine, is a plant weapon against diabetes-related complications according to the scientists from Hyderabad based National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) and University of Strathedgde in Glasgow.
Their study reveals Nano-curcumin in turmeric is a useful weapon against diabetic cataract. The scientists used bio-degradable nano-particles to encapsulate curcumin and claimed its effectiveness increased by nearly nine times. They adopted this method as turmeric loses its bioavailability in the intestine rendering it effective against diabetic cataract. Nano-curcumin can also be an assisting therapy for diabetes to delay complications.
