The Surprising Benefits of Turmeric
You’ve probably heard about turmeric by now. It is after all one of the most researched nutrients today.

What makes turmeric so interesting?

Although the use of turmeric has been known for years in traditional medicine for managing several conditions such as gastrointestinal symptoms, arthritic pain, and even help with lack of energy, only now through many studies, are we fully aware of how good this root can be for our health.

Benefits associated with turmeric:
  • Supports cardiovascular health
  • Protects against neurodegenerative diseases
  • Helps with symptoms related to the gut

Also, turmeric acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant!

How can I get these benefits?

This spice can easily add flavor, aroma, and color to some of your favorite dishes and even some smoothies.

You can also find turmeric and curcumin (the phytonutrient derived from turmeric that gives the spice its yellow color) as nutritional supplements, which offer these nutrients in higher concentrations that aren’t naturally found in foods. Because of this, always remember to ask you healthcare practitioner if this super nutrient is right for you.

Fun Fact

Did you know that turmeric is derived from the root of the Curcuma longa plant, which is a member of the ginger family? No wonder they are both considered one of nature’s best anti-inflammatories!
