Turmeric Health Benefits

Standard

.

 Turmeric is  found often in Indian curry which gives food a bright yellow coloring and also for dyeing fabrics.  Surprisingly turmeric is a great spice to add to our diets because of how it benefits our bodies.

Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory which helps keep pathogens from taking over and harming our bodies. This is due to the presence of the compound Curcumin, which is not only great for lowering inflammation but also lowers the chances of developing brain disease, heart disease, and even cancer. Curcumin is also being studied for being potentially an anti-depressant and for helping to battle age related chronic diseases.
