Curcumin suppresses gum disease bacteria (periodontal)

The antibacterial power of curcumin has been seen in various studies throughout the years. As more and more studies test the power of curcumin against bacteria, we find more and more reasons to take curcumin on a daily basis.

Which bacteria is suppressed by Curcumin

Recently In Japan, in the Department of Preventive Dentistry, in Osaka University at Japans premier Graduate School of Dentistry we find the following curcumin study. The Japanese wanted to know if Curcumin and it’s antibacterial potential could deal with various forms of Periodontopathic Bacteria that lead to gum disease, particularly particularly Porphyromonas gingivalis. Yes they wanted to know if curcumin suppresses gum disease bacteria.

Where is the bacteria that is suppressed by Curcumin found?

Porphyromonas gingivalis is found in cavities and implicated in many forms of gum disease, as well as desieases in the upper gastrointestinal track, the respiratory track, and in the colon. This investigation however, was aimed specifically to see if Porphyromonas gingivalis could be delt with regarding gum disease, and see if curcumin suppresses gum disease bacteria.

Can the Curcumin suppressed bacteria be fought with regular anitbiotics?

Porphyromonas gingivalis is a difficult bacteria to deal with, as other studies show that it can invade human gingival fibroblasts and survive treatment with either metronidazole or amoxicillin alone or a combination of metronidazole and amoxicillin. This makes it a bacteria that is very difficult to eradicate with antibiotics [1].

MetaCurcumin and Gum Disease

MetaCurcumin and Gum Disease

In the Japanese study, various bacterias dealing with gum disease were cultured and treated with various amounts of curcumin. The results were analyzed among the bacterias that cause gum disease and the following positive results were provided.

What where the findings of Curcumin suppressing gum disease bacteria study?

Curcumin inhibited the growth of Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, Fusobacterium nucleatum, and Treponema denticola in a dose-dependent manner, and the Bacterial growth was suppressed almost completely at very low concentrations of curcumin.

Conclusions of the Curcumin suppressing gum disease bacteria:

Finally the Japanese study concluded that Curcumin possesses antibacterial activity against periodontopathic bacteria, and that it may be a potent agent for preventing periodontal diseases.

Could you apply curcumin directly to your gums?

Yes, most curcumin available is in powder form, however here at RevGenetics we have the MetaCurcumin pump which provides a thick liquid that you could use in hot drinks or directly into you mouth*. Because it is a natural dietary supplement, you can purchase it without a doctor’s approval. Now, because it is a dietary supplement the FDA states we cannot provide any medical claims even though it is the most potent form of curcumin in the world as it uses nano-curcumin in micelle particles that beats all other curcumin products we have seen.
