Curcumin Endometrial Cancer - Curcumin Causes Death of Endometrial Cancer Cells

Written by Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy - Date: 02/04/2015

  • Curcumin inhibits the spreading and growth of human endometrial cancer cells.  

Curcumin Endometrial CancerIn a laboratory cell study human endometrial cancer cells were exposed to curcumin for 12, 24 and 48 hours. Curcumin slowed the growth (apoptosis) and spreading of the endometrial cancer cells. Higher curcumin doses and longer the exposure time provided better cancer killing results.

At the date of publication there have not been any human endometrial cancer curcumin studies. So the dose necessary to kill endometrial cancer in the human body is not known.

Curcumin is not well absorbed. Plain curcumin or curcumin extract is not well absorbed. Adding BioPerine (black pepper extract) to curcumin appears to increase blood levels by 200-2,000%. CurcuPlex CR and DIMension 3 by Xymogen have both curcumin and BioPerine.

DIMension 3 also contains diindolylmethane (DIM). Diindolylmethane is also being researched in for use in endometrial cancer and other estrogen driven cancers including breast cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer.
