They speculate that curcumin, the anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant ingredient in turmeric, lessens insulin resistance and prevents Type 2 diabetes in these mouse models by dampening the inflammatory response provoked by obesity.

Turmeric found in Diabetes Support Supplements has been long known for its role in reducing inflammation. There are 24 active National Institutes of Health studies looking at additional benefits of turmeric including the fields of cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and now type 2 diabetes.
A research team at Columbia University found turmeric could play a significant role in preventing type 2 diabetes. A team of endocrinologists treated mice with turmeric and found less insulin sensitivity and a reduction in risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Dr. Tortoriello, working with pediatric resident Stuart Weisberg, M.D., Ph.D., and Rudolph Leibel, M.D., fellow endocrinologist and the co-director of the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center, discovered that turmeric-treated mice were less susceptible to developing Type 2 diabetes, based on their blood glucose levels and glucose and insulin tolerance tests. They also discovered that turmeric-fed obese mice showed significantly reduced inflammation in fat tissue and liver compared to controls. They speculate that curcumin, the anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant ingredient in turmeric, lessens insulin resistance and prevents Type 2 diabetes in these mouse models by dampening the inflammatory response provoked by obesity.
