I LOVE Turmeric…..

In fact, I have a teaspoon of the dried powder every day in my drinking water, I have a teaspoon in my oats and I try to include it in as many of my meals as possible.

Why you may ask? Because value for money Turmeric is one of the cheapest, most readily available and most powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents available. You just have to look at the colour to see the potency of Turmeric for your health.

Turmeric is also one of the most well studied natural substances with over 1500 clinical studies showing a range of benefits-

  • Supports your antioxidant protection against free radicals
  • Helps promote healthy skin
  • Supports overall eye health
  • Provides immune system support
  • Aids your skeletal system and joint health
  • Encourages healthy liver function
  • Helps maintain healthy cells with support against free radicals
  • Balances the health of your digestive system
  • Aids in support of healthy blood and circulatory system
  • Helps maintain normal cholesterol levels to support your cardiovascular system
  • Assists your neurological system’s healthy response to stress
  • Promotes a healthy female reproductive system and prevents breast cancer
  • Helps maintain blood sugar levels already within the normal range

One of the most well studied areas is in breast cancer treatment and prevention. Below are some of the study extracts to show you how effective it can be. The only caution is watch you do not spill any on your favourite top, but apart from that Turmeric is one of the cheapest and best ways to protect and build your health.
