9 Benefits of Turmeric
1. A Powerful Natural Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant
Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Most studies used turmeric extracts that are standardized to include large amounts of curcumin.
2. Anti-aging properties
Oxidative damage is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind ageing and many diseases. Curcumin has powerful antioxidant effects and anti-ageing properties. It neutralizes free radicals on its own, then stimulates the body's own antioxidant enzymes.
3. Improve Brain Function
Back in the day, it was believed that neurons weren't able to divide and multiply after early childhood. However, it is now known that this does happen.
The neurons are capable of forming new connections, but in certain areas of the brain, they can also multiply and increase in number. Curcumin boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF, which increases the growth of new neurons and fights various degenerative processes in the brain.
4. Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease?
Heart disease is the biggest killer in the world, Curcumin has beneficial effects on several factors known to play a role in heart disease. It improves the function of the endothelium and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant.
5. Reduce Joint Inflammation
Arthritis is a common disorder characterized by joint inflammation. Many studies show that curcumin can help treat symptoms of arthritis and is in some cases more effective than anti-inflammatory drugs.
9. Benefits Against Depression
A study in 60 depressed patients showed that curcumin was as effective as prozac in alleviating the symptoms of depression.
