Reverses type 2 diabetes
Auburn University convened a study in 2009 which was published by Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications, that demonstrated turmeric can actually help to treat diabetes.

Turmeric is known for being highly alkaline. This is important because cancer thrives in an acidic environment and cannot survive in an alkaline environment.
Protects your brain
According to scientists, low levels of the growth hormone BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor), are often linked to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Curcumin helps to regulate the levels of this hormone, and therefore protect the brain from being damaged.

Inflammation when left unchecked leads to a long list of other health issues and problems. Curcumin has potent anti-inflammatory properties and fights off inflammation, which then protects us from a host of other diseases.
Curcumin has been proven time and time again, on one level or another, to be effective in the fight against various kinds of cancer.
Several studies have been convened that demonstrate curcumin is as effective as the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), and even more than Diclofenac in treating the swelling and pain.
