Monday Sep 22, 2008 ( -- A new study by researchers at Medical College of Georgia found the active ingredient of the Indian curry spice, turmeric may be used to treat or prevent hemorrhagic stroke.


The study found that turmeric reduced the size of the blood clots in an animal model of hemorrhagic stroke.


For the study, Jay McCracken and Dr. Krishnan Dhandapani injected turmeric dissolved in corn oil three times over three hours into the abdomen of an animal model of hemorrhagic stroke.


The researchers did not know why, but suspected that the effect was due to the antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric.


Turmeric has been found to provide many health benefits including prevention of cancer and Alzheimer's disease.   The herb commonly used in Indian as a spice is incredibly safe. Early research suggests that as much as ten grams a day is safe.


The researchers suggest that turmeric can also be used to prevent stroke.   And intravenous injection could be the best way to deliver an effect.
