5 FAB HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURMERIC


Turmeric
is an orange-colored spice, and it is revered for its culinary and therapeutic benefits.
Turmeric’s active ingredient is an extracted compound called CURCUMIN.

Curcumin has impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties - and studies have shown that it helps to prevent several forms of cancer because of these properties. 
Research has also shown that turmeric is capable of helping a broad range of conditions - below we have listed 5 FABULOUS HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURMERIC (and there's even more!)...

COMBATS ARTHRITIS because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Do you suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis? Turmeric - especially raw - can help provide relief if consumed on a regular basis. "Free radicals" are harmful to the body as they damage the cells of the body, and lead to inflammation. Free radicals are neutralized by turmeric.

REGULATES BLOOD SUGAR - Turmeric helps in actually controlling the disease as it reduces the risk of developing insulin resistance. The effects of diabetic medications can also be improved by consuming turmeric.
AIDS IN WEIGHT LOSS - Production of bile, required for the breakdown of dietary fat, is increased by consuming turmeric. This leads to better digestion and helps to prevent liver disease. Adding 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder to your meals boosts this process, and can actually help you achieve your ideal body weight.

FASTER WOUND HEALING - Because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, turmeric is a natural disinfectant. Sprinkle turmeric powder on the affected area to help promote wound healing.
PREVENTS ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE - Rampant inflammation within the brain is believed to be the cause of this disease. Accumulated fats and plaque in the brain are removed by turmeric, due to its anti-inflammatory property. It also helps to improve oxygen flow.

The medical community has only been recognizing the incredible health benefits of turmeric in the past decade - researchers have been conducting numerous trials on this amazing spice and are discovering more health benefits!
