the magic of turmeric
victoria praeparātiōnem amat - latin for “victory loves preparation”
if there were a physical manifestation of this phrase into a spice it would be turmeric. it may seem far-fetched, but turmeric boasts a wide array of health benefits and studies have only begun to scratch the surface of what this magical root can do for you. from improving liver functionality to affecting psychological health, turmeric’s got you covered.
the arthritis foundation cites several studies in which turmeric has reduced inflammation. the foundation suggests taking turmeric capsules of 400 to 600 mg up to three times per day for inflammation relief.
improved liver function
the antioxidant effect of turmeric appears to be so powerful that it may stop your liver from being damaged by toxins. this could be good news for people who take strong drugs for diabetes or other health conditions that might hurt their liver with long-term use.
studies seem to support turmeric for pain relief, with one study noting that it seemed to work as well as ibuprofen (advil) in people with arthritis in their knees. though dosing recommendations seem to vary, those who participated in the study took 800 mg of turmeric in capsule form each day.
remember and be happy
recent studies have found that turmeric can improve memory. it also has an anti-depressant affect.
