Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence. Many high quality studies show that it has major benefits for your body and brain.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Research has found that low-level inflammation plays a major role in almost every chronic, Western disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer's and various degenerative conditions.
Further research has found that curcumin may be linked to improved brain function and lower risk of brain diseases, as well as potentially lowering risk of heart disease, preventing and treating alzheimer's disease and helping with the treatment of depression.
