The Power Of Turmeric

It seems like there’s been A LOT of talk about Turmeric lately.. not just at Nurcha but in the world as a whole.

We love it in our curries, in our lattes and even in our skincare! Although Turmeric is growing hugely in popularity it has been used in Ayurvedic practices for a long time.

Curcumin is the compound found in turmeric that helps the spice be able to provide it’s magic! It’s known for it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour and antioxidant properties. It’s also what creates the gorgeous orange Turmeric colour… that may also stain your clothes and cups (if you currently use Turmeric, you’ll understand).

Many think that that Turmeric may be one of the most effective nutritional substance in existence! So, what exactly are the benefits of this incredible root?

Turmeric, a Natural Anti-Inflammatory Compound

Inflammation is incredibly important, especially in the world we live in today! It assists the body in fighting harmful bacteria and pathogens. Turmeric is a strong anti-inflammatory – some even claiming that it’s stronger than western anti-inflammatory drugs! Which is pretty cool!

Increases The Antioxidant Absorption Of The Body

Tumeric antioxidants can neutralise free radicals in the body due to its structure as well as boosting the bodies own antioxidant enzymes! It’s pretty amazing stuff! Working two ways to block free radicals by blocking them directly and then boosting the bodies own natural defence.

Incredible For Brain Health

The brain is a magnificent creation! It can actually create brand new neurons and connections (although this was once not believed to be true). BDNF is the brain-derived neurotrophic factor hormone that functions the brain – which Curicumun has been known to increase!

By increasing BDNF in the brain it is known to be effective in delaying or even reversing brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function. It has also been thought that Curicumun may also improve memory and overall brain health.

Known To Aid Against Fighting Cancer

Several studies have been conducted that indicate Curicumuns powerful effects in reducing cancer growth, the growth of new blood vessels in tumours (angiogenesis) and the spread of cancer cells (metastasis).

There have also been studies that indicate that Turmeric may deter cancer from forming in the first place, especially in the digestive system. Who knows, maybe Turmeric will be used as a cure/preventative for cancer one day…soon?

These are only a few benefits that this powerful root can provide to the body and the mind!
