A Component of Turmeric Spice May Help Slow Prostate Tumor Growth

Drink turmeric tea and spice up your dinner with turmeric and help protect your prostate from cancerous tumors.

The research team from Kimmel Cancer Center is reporting that a component of the spice turmeric, which is called curcumin, may help slow prostate tumor growth. In particular, the team is reporting that

"Curcumin, an active component of the Indian curry spice turmeric, may help slow down tumor growth in castration-resistant prostate cancer patients on androgen deprivation therapy (ADT)."

Turmeric is the spice that turns yellow mustard yellow, and is used in most curry blends.

This is further evidence that turmeric spice may be beneficial in preventing and treating some cancers such as prostate, breast, skin and colon cancer.

The Home Cooking website has some great turmeric recipes and suggestions.

Here is a great Turmeric Tea Recipe:

Here is how to make 1 serving of Turmeric Tea:

  • Bring 1 cup of water to boil
  • Add ¼ teaspoon of ground turmeric and ¼ teaspoon of ground ginger to boiling water
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes
  • Strain the tea (optional). I personally don't strain my tea.
  • Add honey and/or lemon to taste (optional). To reduce calories, use Stevia to sweeten the tea rather than honey.
  • To smooth the taste, you can add just a drop of vanilla extract to the tea.

Enjoy the unique taste of Turmeric Tea. Drink it frequently, and improve your health and fitness. Live long and prosper!
