suffer from arthritis feel in their joints.

The Arthritis Foundation suggests that those with arthritis take capsules with at
least 400 milligrams of tumeric up to three times each day.

ibuprofen for some people (particularly those with arthritis in their knees).

pain reliever.

by toxins. This is particularly good for people who are taking strong drugs to
control their diabetes or have health conditions that may impact their liver
long-term.

digest that food. The spice’s powerful anti-inflamatory and antioxidant
properties contribute to healthy digestion. It’s already used in Ayurvedic
medicine for digestive healing, and Western medicine is now beginning to see
how tumeric can help with gut permeability an gut inflammation.

Vitamins and Minerals

Tumeric contains a number of essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6,
potassium, fiber, iron, and more. It’s also 25% of your daily recommended
intake of manganese, promoting brain function and strong bones.

Chronic disease risk mitigation

Alzheimer’s and a number of other disorders and diseases. It can also help
reduce the amount of plaque buildup in your arteries, helping to prevent heart
disease.

Eye benefits

completed with nanotechnolgoy and found that the untreated control group had
their retinal cells reduced by 23% compared to the rats that were treated with
tumeric eye drops. This is a huge opportunity for reducing a number of
different diseases.
