Supports muscle and joint health

Turmeric has grown a lot of popularity for its use in helping to support healthy muscles and joints. Turmeric, in particular, curcumin has shown in some studies to act as an antioxidant which may also assist in promoting healthy muscles and joints.

Helps regulate your metabolism

It has been suggested that curcumin may be effective in improving digestive health, allowing fats and sugars to be metabolized more efficiently. The benefit of this is that it can potentially aid in weight loss and support healthy weight management

Assists with cognitive function

A study conducted to examine the effect that curcumin had on patients with Alzheimer’s concluded some encouraging results in regard to having a positive effect on cognitive function. The research concluded that turmeric or more specifically the curcumin found inside turmeric appeared to inhibit intracellular expression and the formation and propagation of free radicals, which are a possible contributor to neuronal loss and atrophy

Support healthy blood pressure

It has been suggested that the curcumin found in turmeric may assist in supporting healthy blood pressure levels. Although further clinical research is required for a medical conclusion to this, the potential health benefits present a compelling argument for further research to be done.
