What Makes Turmeric So Healthy?

Turmeric is a spice that may help lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease – so why not add it to your diet? Find out more about this healing spice, and get the recipe for Golden Milk featuring turmeric!

The principal ingredient in mild yellow prepared mustard and in some exotic curries, turmeric has excellent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Turmeric may have a specific preventive effect against Alzheimer's disease, as the population of rural India has one of the lowest rates of this disease in the world; daily consumption of turmeric may be a factor. Turmeric may reduce the risk of cancer, as well. In Okinawa, Japan, turmeric tea is a popular drink, and may be linked to Okinawans’ status as the world’s longest-lived people, with an average lifespan of 81.2 years.

While you can certainly add powdered, dried turmeric to your meals, whole, grated root may be even better. Try the Anti-Inflammatory Golden Milk recipe, which features freshly grated turmeric!
