Turmeric For Brain Health

The latest research has found that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, can treat Alzheimer’s disease. One of the primary causes of this disease is a plaque build up in the brain called beta-amyloid plaques.
Curcumin actually, can inhibit the plaque buildup up to 40%.
Curcumin plays a big role in Alzheimer’s treatment, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, as it reduces damage that is caused by oxidizing agents and inflammation.
Turmeric is also useful in the treatment of depression.

Liver Function And Cancer Prevention

Curcumin, the main ingredient in turmeric, has been used in remedies that treat liver diseases.
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin are beneficial to liver health.
Curcumin reduces damages of the liver that are caused by:

• High toxicity levels
• Ethanol (the type of alcohol)
• Liver disease (like cholestasis)
• Cirrhosis (scarring of the liver)
• Iron overdose
Curcumin reduces the development of liver cancer. It reduces the effects of carcinogens on the liver.

How To Get The Most Out Of It: Quick Recipes

That’ why it is the best to use high- quality and organic turmeric extract that contain 95% curcuminoids.
Consuming ¼ teaspoon of turmeric, daily, will reduce inflammation and it will keep diseases away.
