Turmeric Proven Health Benefits

Over the years Turmeric has gained the recognition of the science community due to its potential to aid in:Tumeric and tumeric powder.

  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Reducing blood sugar in diabetics
  • Relieving arthritis
  • Improving digestion
  • Healing wounds
  • Helping prevent Alzheimer’s

All of the broad uses of Turmeric is due to its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antioxidant qualities.

Traditionally called “Indian saffron” because of its deep yellow color, turmeric has been used throughout history as a condiment, textile dye, and health remedy.

I came across a video by Dr. Oz stating the benefits of turmeric for your mood. He mentioned in a real trial study, it was found that turmeric helped with depression without the side effects of prescription drugs.  It is plant medicine! In order for you to see the same results of the study you would have to add 7 TBSP of turmeric to your food. However, another option would be to supplement with Curcumin.  (Curcumin, is the raw material in turmeric.)

What to look for in a supplement:

  • 95% curcuminoids
  • Black pepper extract (black pepper helps the body absorb all the goodness)

Dr. Oz recommened taking 500mg 2x/day.  He also indicated it may take anywhere from 2 – 6 weeks to take full effect.  If you feel good, continue to take the supplement.

Researchers have previously investigated curcumin for its potential role in improving Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease, and stoke damage. It can also promote brain health in general, courtesy of its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

One of the ways it works, which is similar to vitamin D, is by modulating large numbers of your genes. But unlike vitamin D that influences thousands of genes, curcumin has been shown to influence about 700 genes.   — www.mercola.com
