WHY TURMERIC IS A SUPERFOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

Turmeric has been popping up a lot lately. I have been seeing turmeric lattes and drinks that are adding turmeric into them. Why is everyone jumping on this bandwagon? Turmeric has many health benefits and is considered a superfood.

You can essentially add turmeric into food and smoothies. They do sell turmeric supplements, but I am a huge advocate for doing the real thang! 

Health benefits of this powerful spice are: 

1) acts as an anti inflammatory: it's so powerful that it can compete with anti inflammatory drugs 

2) increases antioxidant capacity in the body: can help to neutralize free radicals in the body 

3) can improve brain function: can help decrease the risk of Alzheimer's and depression 

4) can help prevent heart disease: can help regulate blood pressure, and blood clotting

5) prevents cancer: turmeric can decrease cancer cells from forming
