Curcumin is a component of turmeric that has anti-cancer benefits. Specifically, curcumin inhibits cell proliferation and induces apoptosis (natural cell death). Cancer develops from abnormal cells that continue to multiply. That means that a substance that facilities natural cell death and inhibits cell division, like curcumin, would play an integral role in cancer treatment.
Controlling abnormal cell growth is an essential part of cancer treatment that traditional therapies typically fall short on. Curcumin’s effect on the cell cycle plays a vital role as a supplemental therapy.
At UNIFONTIS, we administer curcumin in tandem with other innovative cancer therapies to increase their effectiveness.
