Tumeric’s anti-inflammatory properties are good for all arthritic conditions

Did you know?


Curcumin, the yellow pigment in turmeric, is the active ingredient that fights free radicals and protects the liver against toxins. It also inhibits platelet aggregation ( clumping of platelets), aids in circulation, improves blood vessel to heal and helps in improving cholesterol levels. Tumeric’s anti-inflammatory properties are good for all arthritic conditions. More reported health benefits of turmeric include relief from joint pain, which results in reduced joint swelling and greater range of motion.

Turmeric is loaded with essential minerals, including magnesium, potassium and calcium. It’s also an excellent source of fiber, vitamin B6 and zinc, and contains healthy amounts of vitamin C and magnesium.
Research has shown that turmeric may help reduce gas and bloating, decrease congestion and improve skin conditions such as eczemapsoriasis and acne.
Research also suggests that turmeric may be helpful in treating inflammatory bowel diseases, lowering cholesterol levels, supporting cardiovascular health, relieving indigestion, improving liver function and even reducing your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Lowered risk of cancer and inhibited cancer cell growth – specifically cancer of the breast, colon, prostate, lung and childhood leukemia – are also on the list of possible benefits.
