spices-flavorings-seasoning-foodTurmeric, have you heard of it? I was reading an article the other day about the benefits of turmeric. I saw another article this morning about the benefits of turmeric. I checked my email and in a blog that I follow, there was a blog about turmeric. When God points you into a certain direction, it is best to listen and follow.

Much like Magnesium, I have been taking turmeric for nearly 10 years. This in addition to Ginger may be one of the most cost effective and best things to do for your health. Turmeric was founded in India and has been used in medicine for over 4500 years. Read more about the history of turmeric here.

Some fitness gurus are claiming this may be the the next big health trend to follow, along with probiotics and plant proteins. Turmeric, whose active compound is curcumin, is well documented in its anti-inflammatory properties. After reading several articles this weekend, I also discovered that studies have shown that turmeric helps prevent several forms of cancer including breast, lung, stomach, liver and colon. I also learned that it has been used over the years to treat stress, mania, and depression. Research has also shown that turmeric promotes neurogenesis.

To sum it all up, here is a spice that can be taken in a pill form for literally pennies a day that fights cancer, depression, stress, chronic diseases, and inflammation while promoting new nerve growth. This may be the best thing you can do for your body, I highly recommend you getting this supplement for better health.
