Curcumin as Good as Exercise

Well, not really. But this study would suggest that curcumin has a similar effect to exercise on at least one very specific parameter that was measured. In this randomized, controlled study involving 32 postmenopausal women, researchers found that both curcumin and aerobic exercise may equally improve vascular health during the aging process.

Subjects were assigned to one of three groups: control, moderate aerobic exercise training, or oral curcumin. The intervention period was 8 weeks. Flow-mediated dilation was measured at baseline and after each intervention. No differences between groups were found at baseline.

Compared to the control group, the curcumin and exercise groups equally showed improved flow-mediated dilation from baseline. Interesting? Hmmm...
