4 Surprising Benefits of Turmeric

 

Doctors and scientists are still uncovering the vast health benefits of turmeric. Popular for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and proven ability to help patients with arthritis and inflammation of the joints, turmeric’s benefits extend past joint pain relief. From improving memory to fighting depression and cholesterol, here are four benefits of taking turmeric supplements daily that you may be surprised to learn.

 

  1. Turmeric can help improve your mood.

Studies have shown that turmeric curcumin (curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric) has benefits that help fight depression.1People with depression show signs of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, and the anti-inflammation and antioxidant power of turmeric help reduce these symptoms, which can lead to mood improvement. It has also been proven to improve pain and mood behaviors in women experiencing premenstrual syndrome.2

 

  1. Turmeric can help improve memory.

Studies show that turmeric curcumin can benefit your brain health. The same anti-inflammation and antioxidant action from turmeric curcumin that provides joint pain relief will target all of your cells, including those in the brain. Alzheimer’s disease and other diseases that impact cognitive health are tied to chronic inflammation. Research shows that prolonged use of highly absorbent turmeric curcumin can help protect the brain from negative impacts of chronic inflammation.3

 

  1. Turmeric can reduce hay fever.

Inflammation is the body’s reaction to stress or foreign invaders – like allergies from pollen and dust. Because it helps to lessen inflammation, turmeric curcumin is proven to reduce allergy symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, congestion, and itching.4For seasonal allergy sufferers, turmeric should be a welcome addition to their regular allergy-prevention routine.

 

  1. Turmeric helps to lower your cholesterol.

Research shows that turmeric lowers levels of triglycerides, the fats in your blood that raise your risk of heart disease and stroke.5If you’re regularly taking turmeric curcumin supplements for joint pain or arthritis, you’re also helping your heart by helping to reduce your cholesterol levels.
