If you work a lot, you may become prone to inflammation. This spice will help you relieve it and avoid illness. Turmeric has potent anti-inflammatory qualities and it prevents many chronic illnesses.
Dr. Mercola says:
“Turmeric has been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in Chinese and Indian medicine for millennia. Curcumin, the primary pharmacological agent in this spice, contains proven effects in this area that are comparable to over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents as well as some prescription medications.
But curcumin doesn’t produce the toxic effect that synthetic drugs sometimes do, such as ulcer formation, internal bleeding, and even a lowered white blood cell count.”
It promotes Mental Health
This spice has beneficial neuro properties, and it causes clarity and mental focus. Experts have found that it may treat various ailments like depression, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, tardive dyskinesia, and other neurodegenerative disorders.
