If you haven’t hopped on the turmeric bandwagon yet, you are missing out! This incredible plant is brimming with health-promoting properties and potent compounds that provide amazing support for our bodies. I only listed 5 – there are many more!! (Maybe I should make a second list?!) ⠀
1. Protects against many forms of cancer
From brain tumors to skin cancer, the evidence is piling up quickly on how turmeric provides powerful protection (go to pubmed.gov to check out the numerous studies!).
2. Protects the brain against Alzheimer’s
Did you know that India has one of the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s disease? This is most likely due to the fact that they consume a lot of turmeric in their diets (i.e. curry powder is full of turmeric). Studies show that turmeric can help remove amyloyd plaque buildup in the brain. Pass the curry powder, please!!⠀
3. It’s Anti-inflammatory
Inflammation is the root cause of disease, so it makes sense to eat foods that are naturally anti-inflammatory. If you are suffering from inflammation in any form, adding turmeric can provide incredible relief and support!⠀
4. It’s a natural liver-detoxifier
The liver has a tough job of filtering out toxins every.single.day. If it gets inundated with toxins from our food, environment or stress, it will have a much harder time doing its job. Studies show that turmeric can help protect the liver from damage and help to detoxify it.⠀
5. Boosts Mood & Supports Mental Health
A recent study in India found that curcumin (the principal curcuminoid of turmeric) may work just as well as Prozac in the treatment of depression. Adding turmeric to your supplement regimen can provide incredible support to your mental health!⠀
Again, these are just 5 of the benefits! More and more studies are being conducted on this incredible plant that God has created.
I am loving dōTERRA’s new Turmeric Dual Chamber Capsules, because they are enteric coated, which allows them to bypass the acid in your stomach and make their way to the small intestines. This means better absorption into the body, making them more effective! These have really been helping with post-workout soreness and other aches and pains!
