Curcumin Boosts AMPK Activation, Prevents Fatty Liver

Several new studies show that curcumin activates the enzyme AMPK, along with related fat burning gene signals, thus preventing the build up of fat in liver cells.

The first study was trying to figure out if curcumin had a mechanism that could specifically help protect against non-alcohol fatty liver disease; a common consequence of obesity-related health problems. This study showed that curcumin turned on AMPK, induced fat burning, while inhibiting fat deposition in liver cells. The researchers concluded that these mechanisms were adequate to conclude that, &#8…
