There is a common (and easily obtainable) kitchen spice that has proven effective against disease, comparable with at least 14 popular pharmaceutical drugs.
It’s the main ingredient in curries and gives them their bright colors. The main disease-fighting active ingredient (that we know of) is curcumin.
I constantly see studies popping up showing turmeric effective against cancer, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, inflammation, on and on and on.
And today I read an articlethat said turmeric has been confirmed to be as effective as 14 different pharmaceutical drugs (named in the article) against various health issues, ranging from diabetes to depression!
Whenever I discuss the magical healing powers of one food or another, I inevitably meet with the question: “where are the scientific studies proving it?”
Well, in most cases, there is no motivation for a corporation to fund such a study, because their findings wouldn’t make them any money (and would probably work against them, since people would start popping cinnamon instead of blood sugar meds. Not much money in cinnamon these days).
But in the case of turmeric, there have been literally thousands of scientific studies conducted, proving its efficacy against hundreds of problems.
The best thing about turmeric is that it’s a delicious spice. I add it to everything.
It can be added to almost anything. If you add too much, it is bitter–but a little here and a little there, and before you know it, you’re getting a good, healthy amount.
I like to buy the organic version, because like with everything else, its effectiveness is increased and there aren’t as many contaminants.
So grab a jar of turmeric and see how easy it is to heal your body!
