The Health Benefits of Turmeric


Turmeric has been much discussed in “healthy living” circles recently, but it is no fad. Turmeric has been used for medicinal purposes for over 4,500 years. Turmeric residue has been found on pottery near New Delhi dating back to 2500 BC. It emerged in Ayurvedic medicine around 500 BC and is part of ancient Indian natural healing. New research has shown that turmeric is powerful as an anti-inflammatory, a booster for Omega-3s, as well as other health benefits.

  • The Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of Turmeric.
    Curcumin, the active ingredient in Turmeric and the element that provides its vibrant hue, is a potent anti-inflammatory. It reduced pain and is often used in the treatment of arthritis.
  • Arthritis Treatment
    Arthritis in India is far below the global average, and the wide use of turmeric is credited. Research is underway to prove thatcurcumin helps destroy the beta-amyloid plaques in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Boosting Omega-3s
    Our bodies are not equipped to convert plant based Omega-3s into EPA and DHA (Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids areEPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) andDHA(docosahexaenoic acid). (LINK to Can You Eat Enough Omega-3s post). EPAs are needed to keep your heart healthy, and DHAs are linked to cognitive function and depression. Recent studies show that turmeric boots the conversion of the difficult to convert plant based Omega-3s into DHAs.
  • Fighting Alzheimer’s
    Like arthritis, the rate of Alzheimer’s Disease is very low in India compared to other parts of the globe where turmeric is not used as commonly. Experimental research shows thatcurcumin can destroy the beta-amyloid plaques in the brain that are associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
