Turmeric is a powerhouse spice; with everything you could want from a spice and more! It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic and has a high antioxidant content. Adding turmeric into your diet has no shortage of potential benefits! It can help reduce inflammation, reduce joint pain, help with digestive issues, and help relieve stomach pain. It can also support a healthy brain, improving brain function and boosting your mood.
So, turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties but what does this mean? Why is inflammation bad? Well, inflammation isn’t all bad in fact, acute inflammation is our bodies perfectly natural response to an intrusion - think bacteria, viruses etc. This type of inflammation occurs so the body can fight off these intrusions and heal itself. It is when inflammation gets out of control that there are problems. Chronic inflammation can be caused by a number of things – diet, sleep, exercise, etc. That’s why including anti-inflammatory foods, such as turmeric, can be extremely beneficial to keep your body, and brain, healthy.
