Turmeric has recently gained popularity regarding it’s medicinal benefits, but many cultures have been using this spice for hundreds of years regularly in their cooking! Turmeric contains phytochemicals known as “Curcuminoids,” which are largely responsible for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Curcuminoids are what gives turmeric that bright yellow colour! Turmeric can help reduce the symptoms of conditions such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, autoimmune conditions and even cardiovascular disease including atherosclerotic plaques and elevated cholesterol levels. Curcumin is also a potent antioxidant, enabling it to protect healthy cells from free radical damages that can lead to various cancers, including prostate, breast, skin, colon, stomach and liver cancers. It’s antioxidant activity can also help your liver effectively detoxify harmful substances we come into contact with in our environment everyday. Lastly, the antioxidant potential of Curcumin can assist in preventing neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimers, Parkinson’s disease and even multiple sclerosis. We should all be trying to get more turmeric into our diets!
