Herbal Turmeric, the Natural Remedy for the Treatment of Rosacea, Human Study Find

By Kyle J. Norton

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects the face, leading to redness, pimples, swelling, and dilated blood vessels.

The most affected areas are the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin.

Epidemiologically, the condition may affect anyone, however, middle-aged women who have fair skin are more prone to the disease onset.

Most common symptoms of rosacea are facial redness, swollen red bumps, eye problem, and enlarged nose. If you have to experience the aforementioned symptoms, please check with your doctor to rule out the possibility.

As of today, there is no cure for the condition. Treatments are focused on controlling and reducing the signs and symptoms and improving quality of life, including
* Medications that reduce redness such as drug brimonidine (Mirvaso), particularly in patients with a mild case of rosacea.

* Oral antibiotics for the treatment of bacterial inflammation and infection

* In severe cases, Isotretinoin may be prescribed, if other therapies have failed to improve the condition.

Some researchers suggested that laser therapy may be the best approach to reduce the redness of enlarged blood vessels.

Dr. Daniel M. Keller wrote, "Oxyhemoglobin in the blood absorbs light from lasers at wavelengths of about 595 nm (pulsed dye laser) and 532 nm (KTP laser), creating heat that helps destroy capillaries that contribute to the appearance of rosacea. Over a period of 3-4 weeks, the vessels are resorbed, and facial redness diminishes".

And, "Laser therapy is also effective for background redness but will be less effective for people with the papules associated with rosacea and “almost not effective at all for preventing flushing".

Turmeric is a perennial plant in the genus Curcuma, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to tropical South Asia.

The herb has been used in traditional medicine as anti-oxidant, hypoglycemic, colorant, antiseptic, wound healing agent, and to treat flatulence, bloating, and appetite loss, ulcers, eczema, inflammations, etc.

On finding a potential compound for the treatment of rosacea, researchers examined the effect of turmeric on facial redness, a multifactorial in nature and a sign of many different conditions, including rosacea, photodamage, and flushing.

The prospective, double-blind, randomized pilot study included 33 healthy participants recruited from the dermatology clinic at the University of California, Davis and nearby community from 2016 to 2017. 

Participants were randomized to receive one of three interventions (placebo, turmeric or polyherbal combination tablets) by mouth twice daily for 4 weeks.

By comparing the protection of turmeric and turmeric-containing polyherbal combination tablets versus placebo on facial redness, researchers found that facial redness intensity and distribution including rosacea showed a downtrend in the polyherbal combination group after 4 weeks.

Compared to the turmeric-containing polyherbal combination tablets treatment group, the placebo and turmeric groups had no statistically significant changes in image analysis-based facial redness.

In other words, turmeric-containing polyherbal combination tablets processed the ingredients that do not found in turmeric for the treatment of facial redness including rosacea.

Based on the findings researchers said, "Polyherbal combination tablet supplementation improved facial redness compared to the turmeric or placebo".

Taken altogether, turmeric combination with other herbal medicines may be considered supplements for the prevention and treatment of rosacea, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Intake of turmeric in the form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
