Health Benefits of Turmeric

I have recently learned that it is very beneficial to incorporate turmeric into your daily diet.  The health benefits of turmeric have been known for centuries in India, and research has shown it to have powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
 turmericIt increases the liver function, thereby helping to eliminate toxic substances from the body. 
Turmeric also provides relief for arthritis and joint pain, working to destroy free radicals in your body that are responsible for damaging body cells. 
 
Turmeric could also help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease, due to its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which block the production of IL-2 protein that is known to destroy the protective sheath found around the nerves. 
 
Turmeric contains Vitamin B6, lowers cholesterol levels and aids the prevention of most cardiovascular diseases. 
 
Turmeric keeps your immune system strong, so helps prevent colds and flu.  
 
It is recommended that you consume turmeric with meals, in order to avoid possible side effects of heartburn and increased body temperature. 
 
Turmeric also provides relief for arthritis and joint pain, working to destroy free radicals in your body that are responsible for damaging body cells.   

I have several recipes in the Vegetarian chapter of my Detox Maintenance Recipe Collection that include turmeric, in the section for Vegetable Curries.  Try them out, and experiment with your own ideas for including turmeric into your daily diet.  It may be an acquired taste to drink it in the morning with your hot water and lemon, but it is worth a try if it will give you all these health benefits.
