Turmeric is a rhizome of the ginger family and is known officially as Curcuma longa. It is sometimes also called Indian Saffron. Turmeric is arguably the most powerful herb on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease. It has so many healing properties that currently there have been 6,235 peer-reviewed articles published proving the benefits of turmeric and one of its renowned healing compounds curcumin. Turmeric is one of the most frequently mentioned medicinal herbs in all of science and the next most popular studied herbs include garlic, cinnamon, ginseng, ginger and milk thistle.
TOP 5 HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURMERIC
1) TURMERIC IS A POTENT ANTI-INFLAMMATORY
Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds, including six different COX-2-inhibitors (the COX-2 enzyme promotes pain, swelling and inflammation; inhibitors selectively block that enzyme.) In addition, curcumin, the main component in turmeric, lowers the levels of two other enzymes in the body that cause inflammation.
The University of British Columbia conducted a study that showed curcumin to be effective in inhibiting inflammation in arthritis.
Research has shown turmeric to be an effective anti-inflammatory in the treatment of conditions like arthritis, sports injuries, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, tendonitis and various autoimmune diseases.
And unlike aspirin or ibuprofen, turmeric’s curcumin reduces inflammation naturally, without damaging the liver or kidneys.
2) TURMERIC IS A POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT
According to the University of Maryland, turmeric has many antioxidant properties. Antioxidants fight off cancer-causing free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.
This is important in many diseases, such as arthritis, where free radicals are responsible for the painful joint inflammation and eventual damage to the joints. Turmeric’s combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects explains why many people with joint disease find relief when they use the spice regularly.
3) TURMERIC HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BLOCK CANCER
A recent study from UCLA found that curcumin, the main component in turmeric, appeared to block an enzyme that promotes the growth of head and neck cancer.
Evidence from test tube and animal studies suggests that curcumin may help prevent or treat several types of cancers, including prostate, breast, skin, and colon cancer. (source)
4) TURMERIC LOWERS YOUR RISK FOR DIABETES
Research, published in the journal Diabetes Care, found that people with prediabetes who took capsules containing curcuminwere less likely to go on to develop Type 2 diabetes, compared with people who didn’t take the curcumin capsules.
