Here’s why –
1 – Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
2 – What is curcumin? Curcumin is strongly anti-inflammatory, it is so powerful that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs.
3 – It fights cancer! Studies have shown that it can reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels in tumors), metastasis (spread of cancer), as well as contributing to the death of cancerous cells
4 – Given that turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory, it is known to have a significant effect on arthritis.
5 – Test have shown it to be as effective as Prozac in treating depression.
What is there NOT to LOVE? Add it to drinks. Dishes. Take it as a supplement. Whatever you do, get some into your diet today.
TIP – If buying a supplelent, try to find one with bioperine (another name for piperine), which is the substance that enhances absorption of curcumin (the main component of turmeric) by 2000%.
