Why you might want to add Turmeric to your diet…

Turmeric, as most of us know, is a spice most commonly found in Asian and Indian dishes.

However, it is much more than just a spice! It has many health benefits. 

Turmeric contains an active ingredient, known as Curcumin. Curcumin is what gives this spice its bright yellow color and boosts the health benefits.

Why should you add this spice to your diet? Turmeric used as a spice or Curcumin taken as a natural supplement may benefit you in the following ways:

  • Arthritis relief
  • Relief of joint pain
  • May help relieve stomach complaints (nausea, cramping, and flatulence)
  • May help relieve heartburn

Overall, turmeric has been found to cause relief for conditions that cause inflammation. So if you are dealing with inflammation of some sort, it may be worth giving it a try!

Add the spice to your dishes or you can take it as a supplement!
