How It Works
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been used for 4,000 years to treat a variety of conditions. Studies show that turmeric may help fight infections and some reduce inflammation, and treat digestive problems. Curcumin, the major active compound, is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants scavenge free radical molecules in the body, which damage cell membranes, DNA, and other important biomolecules. Antioxidants fight free radicals and may reduce or help prevent some of the damage they cause. In addition, curcumin lowers the levels of two important enzymes in the body that cause inflammation. It also stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots.
