Turmeric Benefits

there are always questions about how turmeric benefits us.  So how does it benefit us?

It is considered an anti-inflammatory and has been used in Asia and India for nearly 2000 years.  It is yellow in color and considered a root plant.  It is commonly used in Indian curries.  So you can imagine how I for example grew up on curry.  My mom always had a fresh pot of curry and rice on most nights.  Every curry recipe basically calls for some turmeric.

The key ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. It  blocks inflammatory pathways and also cyclooxygenase-2 pathway which is a well known inflammatory pathway in our bodies.  Try capsules.  If not incorporated in foods already.  300-600 mg capsules 3 times daily If you use the roots then powdered .5-1g, do not exceed around 3 g/d or start making curry!
