Curcumin May Help Those Struggling With Kidney Health

Curcumin May Help Those Struggling With Kidney Health

Like with many other parts of the body, oxidative stress and inflammation can hurt kidney function.  According to a new study, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin may help those struggling with kidney health.

Participants in the study included 24 adults with chronic kidney disease. They were given nutritional counseling and 1,000 mg of curcumin daily for 6 months. The researchers measured uremic toxins, gut microbiota composition, inflammatory biomarkers, and oxidative stress at baseline, 3 months, and 6 months.

Those taking curcumin saw a significant reduction in inflammatory biomarkers and lipid peroxidation (which is a measure of oxidative stress) . In addition, those taking curcumin experienced a more balanced composition of gut microbiota. No significant changes were seen in uremic toxins.

The researchers believe these changes indicate curcumin may help support kidney health and function.

The study was conducted by researchers from the Università degli Studi di Milano. It was published online ahead of print on January 5, 2022 in the journal Nutrients.

A previous study found that curcumin many help relieve knee joint discomfort.
