Ancient Indian medicine has used herbal remedies for medical conditions for thousands of years, and today their wisdom and knowledge have slowly been re-introduced to Western medicine.
One of these herbal remedies is turmeric, which is used as an anti-inflammatory agent. Scientists have discovered that the compound that is responsible for turmeric’s health benefits is curcumin, which has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties. It helps support optimal neurological, cardiovascular, and joint health. In addition, a UCLA study suggests that curcumin can improve memory, mood, and attention.
