The internet is abuzz with stories about the recent announcement that curcumin, a component of turmeric, had caused fat and weight loss in experiments with mice.
We wrote an article about this, called “Take Turmeric and Curcumin To Lose Weight“, three weeks ago.
As you probably know, turmeric is an ingredient in lots of curries.
There’s a long way to go with more tests and experiments planned. Presumably testing on people will take place sometime soon and, if these tests are positive, you can expect a flurry of diet and weight loss products, based on curcumin, to hit the market.
Until then, you can eat a good curry with the thought that maybe you can lose a bit of weight in the process.
