The power of turmeric

With more then 6000 peer reviewed articles researching the various effects of turmeric, it is the most researched natural remedy around.  Turmeric has been used for almost 4000 years in Southeast Asia for culinary and ceremonial purposes.  Scientific research has proven some very interesting benefits of regularly consuming turmeric:

  1. Reduced inflammation and pain
  2. Reduced depression
  3. Reduced chance of diabetes
  4. Reduction in possibility of developing cancer
  5. Improved brain health
  6. Anti-fungal
  7. Anti-bacterial

Scientific studies have been performed investigating the possibility of utilizing turmeric to treat and cure all kinds of interesting maladies, even some genetic disorders.  In some cases, turmeric may be able to reduce the likelihood of a condition occurring, and in others it may be able to help reduce symptoms.  Some of the conditions that turmeric may be able to help are

  • Alzheimers
  • Arthritis
  • High cholesterol
  • Colon cancer
  • Childhood leukemia
  • Prostate cancer
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Turmeric is effective for many of it’s uses at very low doses, so enjoy it as a seasoning in your food or as a supplement.  Because the main medicinal component of turmeric, curcurmin, is fat soluble, you can increase the effectiveness of the turmeric by including it in a sauce made from coconut milk, as it is traditionally used in many curries and sauces.
