You certainly have heard about turmeric, right? If you don’t know about its benefits, watch the suggested video to learn more about this powerful root.
With an orange color, turmeric is a famous spice in the culinary world for improving both the aspect and the flavor of many dishes. The characteristic color of turmeric happens because of a compound called curcumin, which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and natural analgesic.
Just so you have an idea of how powerful curcumin is, it regulates the inflammatory imbalances of tissues, destroys harmful pathogens, and creates a protective layer against infectious agents.
As of today, more than 2,000 published studies show the incredible benefits of this plant in the treatment and prevention of cancer.
These studies show that curcumin, the active compound of turmeric, inhibits the growth of cancer cells and prevents many types of cancer, including breast, lungs, stomach, liver, and colon.
