What is Turmeric?

One of turmeric’s main components is curcumin and is often consumed with piperine. Turmeric has long been used in Indian medicinal practices for its perceived anti-inflammatory properties and even as a spice to give curry its color. [1]

Potential Benefits of Turmeric

Studies suggest that turmeric may increases the antioxidant capacity of the body. [2] Many believe Turmeric and its antioxidants have the capability to help in neutralizing free radicals, which are highly reactive and harmful compounds responsible for diseases and other harmful impacts on the body. [3], [4] Data also suggest that turmeric may have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. [5] [6] A study performed by the European Journal of Applied Physiology involved 17 men in a double-blind randomized controlled experiment. The men performed leg press exercises and recorded limb pain, inflammation, and muscle damage for the following 48 hours. The result showed there was moderate to large reductions in pain during the various leg exercises in the times when the participants ingested curcumin as opposed to when they did not. The participants also experienced faster muscle recovery and less inflammation after taking curcumin. [7]
