Spice of “Life”

TURMERIC

That’s right, its the spice of life or in this case anti-inflammation. Curcumin, the property that gives turmeric its sunny yellow color, blocks inflammatory chemicals in the body (You could go straight for the powerful stuff and simply take curcumin, but I’d suggest using the whole spice itself.) If you haven’t developed a taste for turmeric, I suggest you get on it. It is a potent anti-inflammatory spice, which protects against oxidation of dietary fats during cooking and against oxidative stress in the body after being eaten. Turmeric is best absorbed when eaten in combination with other spices, such as in curries or soups, so get cooking!!!

Not sold yet….Turmeric beat both ginger and an anti-inflammatory drug for treating arthritis. I don’t know about you, but I’m always up for the natural healing when possible.
