Turmeric: The Ultimate Superfood



Tumeric, the essential ingredient in every Indian kitchen that we simply can’t go without. From food to face packs, its uses are extremely diverse. If you didn’t love turmeric enough already, read about Curcumin- the incredible component in Turmeric that has endless benefits for both your mind and body!


Anti-inflammatory


Chronic inflammation is linked to a number of common health problems like heart disease and cancer. Many molecules known to play key roles in inflammation can be suppressed by curcumin.


Antioxidant


One of the factors underlying ageing and many diseases is oxidative damage. Free radicals, highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons, are involved in this as they are known to react with essential chemical compounds such as fatty acids, proteins, and DNA. Antioxidants like curcumin in turmeric protect your body from free radicals, which is why they are so important.


Prevents Diabetes


Curcumin may help treat and prevent diabetes, as well as related conditions including diabetic nephropathy (commonly known as diabetic kidney disease), which affects persons with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, according to a previous evaluation of studies. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics can help prevent diabetes and reduce many of the conditions that contribute to diabetes, such as insulin resistance, high blood sugar, and hyperlipidemia.
