Turmeric is the root that gives your curry dish its yellow colour.. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin; many nutritional supplements contain this anti-inflammatory compound. Here are five reasons to incorporate turmeric into your life.

Turmeric may lower your risk for cancer

Research has shown that curcumin can affect cancer growth, development and spread at the molecular level.

Turmeric can improve inflammatory conditions like arthritis

Low grade inflammation has been linked to a variety of health conditions like arthritis. Studies have shown that curcumin inhibits inflammatory molecules.

It may reduce your risk for Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s is a neurodegenerative disease with no known cure. However, some research suggests that curcumin might be able to clear some of the plaque in the brain that leads to Alzheimer’s.  

It’s easy to incorporate into your diet

Turmeric can be added to beverages, smoothies, and warm dishes like soups, chilis and stews. There are even dessert recipes that call for turmeric!  

It can support mental health

The anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric can support more than just joints, but the mind as well. Animal studies have shown that curcumin has the potential to protect neurons in the brain and support the birth of new brain cells.
