    It’s no exaggeration to state that diabetes is a colossal
    health epidemic in the United States. In their 2014 National Report, the CDC estimates that 29.1 million people have diabetes, which represents an alarming
    9.3% of the US population.

    Many diabetics already know about the benefits of a low-glycemic diet, but why haven’t they heard about turmeric, one of the world’s most extensively researched
    anti-diabetic plants?

    Turmeric root has been shown to be a true diabetes-fighting superstar; recent studies have shown that turmeric extract is effective at helping fight Type
    2 diabetes.

    A recent literature review published in the International Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism [1] adds promising new support to the notion that the ancient Indian spice
    turmeric may provide an ideal drug alternative to treating and perhaps even preventing type 2 diabetes.

    The study reviewed research published between 1998 to 2013 that indicates the active polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin may provide an ideal intervention for type 2 diabetes, capable of reducing elevated blood sugar levels
    and insulin resistance.

    How it Works:

    Amazingly, the research literature review concluded that
    turmeric and it's active component curcumin could improve
    the type 2 diabetic state through many different mechanisms,
    such as:

    - Reduction in liver glucose production
    - Reduction in liver glycogen production
    - Stimulation of increased glucose uptake
    - Suppressing high blood sugar induced inflammatory states
    - Stimulating insulin secretion from pancreatic tissues
    - Improvement in pancreatic cell function
    - With the possibility of deadly side effects from drugs, we
    need natural, safe, affordable and easily accessible
    alternatives like turmeric now more than ever.

    But before you run out and buy turmeric, you need to read
    this... not just ANY turmeric will work.
