Anti-inflammatory – Turmeric has countless anti-inflammatory properties. This is good news, because inflammation puts people at risk for almost every disease known to man. What a lot of people don’t know, is that inflammation is necessary to help fight off bacteria. It is when the inflammation becomes chronic, that it can cause further issues.
Brain Health – Research suggests that turmeric has a great effect on your overall brain health. It hasis been shown that the main component, curcumin, can help to increase levels of a hormone that stimulates the growth of new neurons in the brain and may help to protect against degenerative disease. It may also improve your memory in some cases.
Detox – Turmeric has also been shown to act as a powerful antioxidant. It helps to rid the body of free radicals, which, in layman’s terms, are toxic substances in our body that can be brought on by irritants, pollution, and smoking, among others. Turmeric works in two ways to reduce these, blocking them directly and also stimulates the body’s own antioxidant mechanisms.
Weight loss- Yes, turmeric can even help with weight loss! Turmeric has been known to detox the liver, which can help your body burn fat easier and faster. It can also aid in digestion as well!
