Turmeric, a bright yellow-orange spice often used in the curries of Indian cuisine, contains curcumin compounds with medicinal properties. Curcumin is anti-inflammatory, a powerful antioxidant, and boosts the activity of the body’s own endogenous enzyme activities. It has been found to act via a variety of mechanisms to decrease your risk of heart disease risk factors, cancer growth, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression. This article from the Food Matters Facebook page, inspired by the documentary, highlights some compelling research about turmeric and curcumin. http://ow.ly/MATS8
