Incredible Turmeric Health Benefits (Dr. Gus)
As we all know adding herbs and spices is a great way of adding flavor and nutrition to our diet. The health benefits of the main compound in turmeric known as curcumin has been the subject of over 5600 peer-reviewed journals.
Ancient Chinese, Egyptians, and Persians used herbs and spices like saffron and turmeric for their medicinal benefits all the time. Over the past three decades, the use of herbs and spices in form of supplements has increased drastically. According to World Health Organization, in Africa up to 80% of the people use alternative medicine for their primary health care. In other parts of the world such as Europe, North America and other industrialized regions, over 50% of the population use some kind of alternative medicine.
With the cost of healthcare and pharmaceutical drugs increasing drastically every year, it makes a lot of sense to turn your fridge into a medicinal cabinet.
Turmeric known as golden spice of life happens to be as effective and sometimes even more superior to 14 different pharmaceutical drugs:
Powerful anti-inflammatory (alternative for NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, phenylbutazone, naproxen, indomethacin, diclofenac, dexamethasone, and celecoxib)
According to a study published in the journal Oncogene, curcumin is a great alternative for NSAIDs anti-inflammatory drugs. Another study published by Critical Care Medicine indicates that turmeric is as effective as anti-inflammatory drug called dexamethasone.
Reducing the risk of cardio diseases such as high cholesterol (alternative for Lipitor and atorvastatin)
According to studies, turmeric can lower the level of bad cholesterol and is a great alternative for cardiovascular drugs. Other studies have also indicated that turmeric could improve the cardio health by reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Improving the memory by reducing the risk of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease (alternative for Memantine and Diclofenac)
According to research, curcumin in turmeric is superior to drugs used for improving memory and can reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. According to another study published in the Academy of Neurology, curcumin has a potential role in prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
