Curcumin May Prevent Obesity

curcumin
Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of the popular Indian curry spice turmeric, which is a member of the ginger family


Findings from a study at Tufts University suggests dietary curcumin may have a potential benefit in preventing obesity. Angiogenesis is necessary for the growth of adipose tissue. Dietary polyphenols may suppress growth of adipose tissue through their antiangiogenic activity and by modulating adipocyte metabolism. In addition, curcumin significantly lowered serum cholesterol and expression of PPAR-gamma and CCAAT/enhancer binding protein alpha, 2 key transcription factors in adipogenesis and lipogenesis. The curcumin suppression of angiogenesis in adipose tissue together with its effect on lipid metabolism in adipocytes may contribute to lower body fat and body weight gain. — Journal of Nutrition
