I’m not for sure if anyone has posted this study or not, but it’s rather interesting.
Found in the May 2009 Journal of Nutrition
Curcumin inhibits adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and angiogenesis and obesity in C57/BL mice.
“Supplementing the high-fat diet of mice with curcumin did not affect food intake but reduced body weight gain, adiposity, and microvessel density in adipose tissue, which coincided with reduced expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor VEGFR-2.”
Just another reason why we ALL should be taking curcumin. Hopefully, we’ll see more studies confirming this potential benefit.
