Studies show that curcumin, a turmeric bioactive compound, can treat depression, anxiety, brain ageing and any abnormal state where inflammation is present. But unfortunately, very few recipes are compatible with curcumin in order to provide the body the expected benefits.
A study shows that curcumin supplements improves cerebral blood flow as well as physical exercises. Another study found that consuming a certain daily dose of curcumin significantly improved concentration and working memory among older people.
Turmeric has an anti-inflammatory effect
Curcumin also acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory. Studies show that if it reaches the tissue with optimal concentrations, it can fight against any type of inflammation, including even those from acute illness such as intestinal inflammatory disease, pancreatitis, arthritis and previous chronic uveitis.
Turmeric improves the health of the heart
It also been shown that turmeric has the ability to reduce harmful cholesterol, to eliminate plaque accumulation in the arteries and to prevent blood clotting. The researchers are still studying its benefits for heart health.
Turmeric helps with arthritis and other osteoarticular inflammation
Curcumin is known to have anti-arthritic properties. A recent study was conducted on a group of 45 people who were suffering from such problems. Those who introduced curcumin into their daily alimentation experienced a great improvement in arthritic symptoms.
So, what happens to your body is you eat turmeric every day? Only good things! You will improve your health and you will enjoy its amazing benefits!
If it’s difficult to introduce turmeric in your daily alimentation, I suggest you to prepare a lemonade and add some turmeric in it. This is an easy and pleasant way to consume this healthy spice every day.
