Health Benefits & Research

Turmeric and Your Health

by Cathy Fleming 12 Mar 2021 0 Comments

Turmeric is holding its own when it comes to science.  Studies on curcumin reveal that it can be potent in a variety of ways to heal the body.  Turmeric is not only an anti-inflammatory agent; it is also a powerful antioxidant.  The power lies in curcumin, the element that gives turmeric its yellow/orange color.  Used as a spice in India and South Asia for thousands of years, turmeric is now coming to light as one of the most exciting natural medicines.  

Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is when there is an imbalance of free radicals versus antioxidants.  Free radicals are oxygen-filled and can damage the body.  Free radicals cause your body to start rusting as you age, just like a metal can.  

The rust causes inflammation, and you begin to develop conditions such as heart disease or high blood pressure.  Research has discovered that curcumin fights free radicals. It can go after the different types of free radicals.  Not only does curcumin go after the various free radications, but it can also stop them from reproducing.  


Turmeric is not only a powerful antioxidant, but it is also a potent anti-inflammatory.  Inflammation causes pain, but it also causes several chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, allergies, asthma, and even cancer.  

Through several studies, curcumin has demonstrated its ability to reduce the inflammation of arthritis just as well as ibuprofen. It can also fight cancer cells and make the immune system aware of tumors.  

Most individuals tolerate turmeric without any side effects.  Some people may experience heartburn, diarrhea, headaches, or nausea if turmeric doses are too high.  

Curcumin offers a host of beneficial properties, including potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.
