What are the health benefits of Turmeric?
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
- Curcumin helps to combat low-level chronic inflammation, which is a symptom of most diseases.
- Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure. In addition, curcumin boosts the activity of your body’s own antioxidant enzymes. Thus, curcumin delivers an antioxidant one-two punch against free radicals. It blocks them directly, then stimulates your body’s own antioxidant defenses.
In a number of studies, curcumin was shown to be an effective antidepressant — leading to emotional balance and well-being. This is essential to managing the stress of modern life.
Curcumin has been used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. It is nontoxic and has a number of therapeutic benefits, including analgesic, antiseptic, and anticarcinogenic properties.
