What’s turmeric? We’ll, it’s simply a yellow ginger, so yes. It’s a ginger, but the yellow one. Before all of this, I never heard about the word or know what a turmeric and the only benefit I know of taking it is improving your voice – especially if you want to be a singer.
In this post, I’d like to share with you a few but awesome health benefits when taking a turmeric as your health supplement, and they are:
AntioxidantCurcumin is the main ingredient of Turmeric which is a strong antioxidant. And the antioxidants is really important for us since it helps us protect our body from free radicals.
Anti-inflammatoryCurcumin is not only a strong antioxidant, but also has high anti-inflammatory effect which what I really like about since I do have Eczema and I do get itchy from time to time, and prone to easily get skin inflammations.
BDNFBrain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor or BNDF is a type of growth hormone that functions in our brain, and guess what many common brain disorders like depression and Alzheimer’s disease has been linked to poor levels of hormones. So, in order to not to have these kind of disease, let’s increase our brain levels with curcumin wherein the Turmeric have. Bonus?
