Turmeric is extremely beneficial for your health.
It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and used to help treat arthritis, cardiovascular health, diabetes and neurological conditions.
The curcumin in turmeric has proven strong anti-inflammatory properties that block the action of inflammatory molecules in the body.
Curcumin gives it its vibrant colour and is a potent antioxidant that is very effective at fighting free radicals and helps protect the skin, eyes and hair. It assists in keeping them youthful which is what we all want.
It also has anti-bacterial and cholesterol lowering properties.
Curcumin can help reduce the build up of the protein amyloid-b in the brain. Amyloid-b causes oxidative (free radical) damage and inflammation in the brain and is one of the main causes of Alzheimer’s disease. Antioxidants in turmeric help to fight this free radical damage.
I take turmeric as a supplement and every morning I have grated ginger and 1/2 a teaspoon of turmeric in boiled water using an infuser teapot.
The bright vibrant turmeric can have many health benefits.
Enjoy your day.
