Turmeric is great for protecting the brain and liver against diseases due to its health properties.
The active ingredient in turmeric, circumin is thought to be effective at treating Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is caused by a build up of a plaque known as beta-amyloid.
Circumin is effective at inhibiting the build up of this plaque.
Researchers also believe that the anti-inflammatory properties in turmeric can help those suffering from liver diseases such as
- Iron overdose
- Liver disease (such as cholestasis)
- High toxicity levels
- Cirrhosis (scarring of the liver)
Eating more turmeric could help in the preventing of liver cancer.
Curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body so for maximum effect it is best to use organic turmeric extract with 95% circuminoids.
A quarter of a teaspoon taken every day is enough to protect your body against inflammation and diseases.
Turmeric when eaten with fat helps the body absorb it more easily.
