Turmeric: The Antiflammatory Super Herb

Turmeric: The Antiflammatory Super Herb

turmericWe all make choices. Some better than others. How would you rate your food choices on a scale of 1-10, and 10 means you are eating healthy all the time? When I started to learn about my asthma and it’s triggers, I learned quickly that cold, sugary and salty things would exasperate my symptoms. I discovered I was able to change my digestion and chronic constipation by changing my foods and applied that same theory to releasing my asthma, with a few extra constraints that triggered my poor breathing.  The biggest factor that we have control over when it comes to inflammation, is our diet. While there are food types that are infamous for causing unnecessary and dangerous inflammation, there are others that have been proven to have the opposite effect. One of these foods is turmeric. I recommend turmeric to all of my clients. It’s one of those things, like brushing our teeth, I believe (yupperz, my opinion) we should all do— so much yummy science-backed research behind this 1000’s of year old spice.

Turmeric benefits

Turmeric has long been used as a part of traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s being widely adopted in western culture for the same reason. A 2011 study tested its effects on arthritis in rats, and found that turmeric decreased the production of inflammatory cytokines while increasing the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines in the body. These researchers also compared turmeric to ginger, and found that it was an even better anti-inflammatory than ginger is.

Turmeric is also used to promote digestive health. Specifically, it can help to treat Crohn’s disease, ulcers, and inflammatory bowel disease. Also, turmeric is an anti-oxidant, so it helps prevent cancer. One study testing 3 different types of turmeric root found that it was able to reduce breast cancer, colon cancer, leukemia, and melanoma cancer!

Black pepper benefits

Eating turmeric along with black pepper will totally maximize its effects. There is a substance in black pepper called piperine that increases your body’s absorption of turmeric (bioavailability) by 2000%! Even on its own, black pepper can fight oxidation in your body, and can stimulate healthy digestion.

 

All turmeric is not the same nor digested that same. I’ve been using and vetting, Fusionary Formulas for 6 months now, because I can certainly feel and SEE the results of this herb.
