Curcumin Supplementation Linked With Increased Serum Adiponectin Concentrations


Adiponectin is a protein hormone that is involved in regulating glucose levels as well as fatty acid breakdown. Decreased adiponectin levels are thought to play a central role in the development of type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease. A new study suggests that supplementation with curcumin may help increase serum adiponectin concentrations.





Researchers from Coventry University and Tehran University of Medical Sciences used data from six clinical trials that included 652 participants for their analysis. The trials all looked at the effects of curcumin supplementation on serum adiponectin concentrations.





The researchers found that curcumin supplementation significantly increased serum adiponectin concentrations compared to placebo. 





The study was published online ahead of print on July 30, 2019 in the journal Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome: Clinical Research & Reviews.
