Have you heard about Turmeric? If you haven’t heard from it I am sure you have tasted it. It is a spice used regularly in Indian food (is what gives curry its yellowish-orange color). Turmeric has been used for years in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine. It has high anti-inflammatory properties, and has been used to treat conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, bloody urine, hemorrhage, toothache, bruises, chest pain, and colic. Studies have also found Turmeric can inhibit cancer cell growth and metastases.
New studies have also found that Curcumin a compound found in Turmeric, is effective in stopping the progression of Parkinson’s disease and can even inhibit the accumulation of beta amyloids in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients.
Adding turmeric to your diet is an easy way to stay healthy and protect your self from inflamation. You can add turmeric powder to your soups, stews and I always add some when I marinate meat. You can also buy turmeric capsules, and take them daily.
