Turmeric may be one of the most powerful plants on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease

Turmeric is used today for inflammation, arthritis, heart disease, skin, liver, gall bladder and digestive problems, Alzheimer’s, cancer and other conditions

It contains compounds with medicinal properties, called curcuminoids, the most important of which is Curcumin, which is the main active ingredient in turmeric. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant

One of the most well established health benefits of Turmeric lies in its digestive properties. Turmeric has long been known to control the onset of stomach ulcers

Clinical trials have revealed that a turmeric extract, given to osteoarthritis patients with knee problems, was just as effective in relieving pain as ibuprofen medication

Turmeric also has potential benefits for diabetic patients. Inflammation is a major problem for diabetics, be it in adipose tissue (fat) where mild inflammation can make these cells immune to the action of insulin or in the pancreas where inflammation causes the immune system to wreck havoc on insulin producing cells. Turmeric, as noted above, possesses powerful anti-inflammatory substances that work through multiple cellular pathways

Based on small clinical trials, it is thought Turmeric will lead to be a promising plant as a preventative measure against Alzeimer’s disease, and also as part of a treatment protocol for Alzheimer’s. Curcumin can increase brain levels of brain-derived neurotropic factor and according to a small study, is as effective as antidepressant medication

With studies showing Turmeric and Curcumin having preventative benefits against heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s, it makes sense to take Turmeric to live longer
