Let’s face it. There’s no shortage of diseases or ailments that can derail your health and well-being…
Especially as you age!
From heart disease, to type-2 diabetes, to arthritis – they all come with a laundry list of different side effects.
But they all have one thing in common…
INFLAMMATION – the root of ALL disease!
But fighting disease-causing inflammation doesn’t mean you need to be relegated to a lifetime of prescription drugs just to ‘get by.’
According to research, all you may need to do is reach for this ‘fragrant’ spice.
Turmeric Fights Disease-Causing Inflammation
Turmeric is a fragrant, yellow spice that has been used in India for decades as a flavoring agent and medicinal herb.
And now there’s plenty of research to back up what locals have known for a long time – turmeric is one of the ultimate ‘superfoods’ out there.
Turmeric is loaded with a natural compound called curcumin – an anti-inflammatory antioxidant that helps protect the body from free radical molecules that can damage cells and tissue.
One study found that curcumin is as effective as ibuprofen for pain management in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis when taken for four weeks.
In other words: It’s a great alternative to OTC pain medications for acute joint and muscle pain.
Scientists are even currently working on developing a turmeric compound that could one day replace and regenerate damaged tissues.
But turmeric goes way beyond healing the occasional aches and pains (and it’s not something you need to wait around for) …
Because adding turmeric to your diet TODAY can help reduce chronic inflammation, thus reducing your risk of developing diseases like arthritis, heart disease, and even cognitive decline.
If you haven’t tried turmeric before, don’t worry.
It’s easy to find and it tastes great!
You can find turmeric powder in the spice aisle of your local grocery or health food store. You can also find turmeric supplements at health food stores (in case you need a convenient, on-the-go alternative to the powder).
You can put turmeric on vegetables or meats, like chicken and fish. You can even find ready-to-drink bags of turmeric tea.
The possibilities are endless with turmeric!
