Tiquid Gold…Complete with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, discover the healing properties of Turmeric.
Turmeric is a plant of the ginger family and is generally well known as the spice that gives curry its yellow colour. Turmeric is also often referred to as a superfood and health booster because of its many health benefits.
Historically, Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as it contains compounds with various medicinal properties. These compounds are called curcuminoids – the most important of which is curcumin.
Research has found that curcumin has some powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, regularly consuming turmeric can help soothe tired bones, achy muscles and help boost your body’s defence system. Turmeric’s antioxidant capacity helps fight free-radical damage which is particularly good for the immune system and brain function.
Another benefit of Turmeric is its ability to help improve gut health. It has been used to treat inflammatory conditions such as colitis and irritable bowel syndrome. Turmeric also happens to be a low-FODMAP food, so it’s safe to use if you’re on a FODMAP diet.
Curcumin, the active compound in Turmeric, has also shown some promise in helping to treat depression by reversing detrimental brain changes that occur in depression. Studies have also taken place that show its potential to boost levels of mood-regulating neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. Goodbye sadness and hello happiness!
