MEDICINAL BENEFITS: Curcumin is the main medicinal compound found in turmeric. It is a powerful antioxidant and offers potent anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin is commonly used in supplement form as a natural remedy for issues linked to chronic inflammation such as arthritis, brain fog, acne, neurological diseases, digestive issues and autoimmune diseases.
Since the curcuminoids found in turmeric are fat-soluble, pairing turmeric with healthy fats such as coconut oil can improve the absorption of turmeric’s medical properties. Adding a pinch of black pepper to turmeric extracts also improves the bioavailability of curcumin by 2000%.
In traditional medical systems, turmeric is often applied topically or ingested orally for skin issues related to inflammation such as acne. Turmeric’s high level of antioxidants reduces oxidative stress and destroys free radicals, providing turmeric with powerful anti-aging benefits.
In scientific studies, turmeric was found to be highly effective at reducing symptoms associated with arthritis. This verifies turmeric’s common use to provide joint support, ease pain and as a means to support a healthy inflammatory response.
In alternate medical systems such as Ayurveda, turmeric is revered for it’s ability to significantly improve brain health. Turmeric’s ability to lower inflammation is key to it’s brain boosting properties. Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties helps reduce plaque build up found on the brain. Plaques form when proteins called ‘beta-amyloids’ clump together and accumulate between brain cells. Scientific studies proved that turmeric may remove beta-amyloids from the brain, making turmeric a useful addition for persons suffering from neurological disorders such as Alzheimers, where plaque build up is common. Turmeric can also improve your mood and may help fight symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety.
