Benefits of Turmeric
- Potent natural anti-inflammatory – reduced muscular aches, bruising, joint inflammation and pain
- Powerful anti-oxidant – fights cancer-causing free radicals, reducing or preventing some of the damage they can cause
Long used in Asian traditional medicine, Turmeric is a powerful anti-oxidant and potent anti-inflammatory. The anti-oxidant properties of tumeric “fight cancer-causing free radicals, reducing or preventing some of the damage they can cause.” As “one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories available,” turmeric has been shown to inhibit the onset of rheumatoid arthritis, and to significantly reduce symptoms of already established arthritis. Turmeric has been employed to treat conditions ranging from flatulence, jaundice, colic, and menstrual difficulties, to haemorrhage, toothache, bruising, and more recently, inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. Turmeric has also been shown to improve liver function and lower cholesterol.
