How Curry prevents from putting on weight?

Researchers believe that turmeric which is used in most Indian meals has an active ingredient that can help fight obesity. A meal which includes turmeric will lead to less weight gain than the normal meal having all ingredients except turmeric. A study from Tufts University in Boston found that turmeric contains a plant based chemical called curcumin which is easily absorbed by the body.

This plant based chemical called curcumin which suppresses the growth of fat tissues in mice & human cell culture. Curcumin is also easily absorbed by the body, the researchers said, after experiments on mice. Turmeric is effective when added to a high-fat meal which could help fighting obesity. It destroys the fatty tissues from the meal.

It appears the curcumin prevents the formation of new blood vessels which in turn help expand fatty tissue which is the cause of weight gain. Mohsen Meydani of the Jean Mayer U.S. Department of Agriculture said , “Weight gain is the result of the growth and expansion of fat tissue, which cannot happen unless new blood vessels form, a process known as angiogenesis.”

He further said, “Based on our data, curcumin appears to suppress angiogenic activity in the fat tissue of mice fed high fat diets.”

Researchers gave one set of mice high-fat diets and another set the same food with 500mg of curcumin added to each meal. After 12 weeks, the mice which were fed curcumin weighed less than those which did not eat it. Researchers said that the next step will be to perform clinical trials on humans.
