What if I told you that there’s a seasoning that has proven effective against certain joint pain?
Studies have found that Turmeric relieved arthritis symptoms to a similar degree as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and have fewer side effects. The active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin, which has potent anti-inflammatory effects and is a powerful antioxidant.
Curcumin helps improve brain function and protects against Alzheimer’s. It fights chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer. It’s even been shown to help with depression. However, it’s not easily absorbed. Pairing turmeric with fats, oils, black pepper can help improve absorption and increase its antioxidant effect. Although you may be more familiar with it in curries, there are several ways to incorporate it into your diet. Dash it on a salad, you can make a tea out of it, make a homemade sauce, curry cauliflower, roasted veggies, spice up your eggs, sprinkle it over a smoothie. It’s a great way to add more flavor and depth to any dish while fighting inflammation.
