Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is the most active component of turmeric. It is believed that curcumin is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Experimental studies with diabetic animals demonstrate that curcumin supplementation can suppress cataract development and collagen cross-linking, promote wound healing, and lower blood lipids and glucose levels. The mechanism by which curcumin may cause diabetes-associated vascular damage to regress is not known. Erythrocytes were treated with… CONTINUE READING
