Does taking curcumin treat hangover and protecting the liver ?
There are a lot of sayings on the Internet about “Taking curcumin treat hangover and protect the liver”, Many people in life also consume turmeric powder.
Regarding curcumin’s “relief” effect, further clinical studies need to be confirmed, although some experimental studies have shown that after taking a high-concentration, high-absorption curcumin, the blood acetaldehyde concentration will be reduced. But this does not explain its clinical efficacy, so curcumin is not recommended as an “anti-alcoholic” for the time being.
The role of curcumin in “protecting the liver” has been confirmed by a large number of experimental studies. Turmeric extract and curcumin can protect the liver through anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and fibrosis inhibition. And many studies have shown that curcumin has a certain protective effect on the oxidative damage of liver cells caused by alcohol and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
It is worth noting that:
Although curcumin has many health benefits to the human body, direct consumption of “turmeric powder” is difficult to achieve the desired effect.
The curcumin content in turmeric powder is very low
The curcuminoid in turmeric powder is only 2-6%, and the active ingredient curcumin in curcuminoid accounts for only about 80% of it, which is very low.
The bioavailability of turmeric powder is very low
Moreover, our daily consumption is quite limited, and the curcumin that can really be absorbed by the body is very small.
