What are the Health Benefits of Turmeric?

Turmeric dramatically increases the antioxidant capacity of the body. Oxidative damage is a driving force which causes diseases and also makes visible the impacts of aging. [2] Turmeric and its antioxidants are able to neutralize free radicals, which are highly reactive and harmful compounds responsible for diseases and other harmful impacts on the body. [3], [4] From a recovery standpoint, turmeric and the curcumin inside of it is a powerful anti-inflammatory. [5] Curcumin is a bioactive substance which attacks inflammation at a molecular level, making it as effective as many anti-inflammatory drugs, just without the side effects. Drinking a Tru Breeze after your workout is not only ideal for relaxing your muscles, but it also helps fight off inflammation to prevent swelling and soreness. [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 they ingested curcumin as opposed to when they did not. The participants also experienced faster muscle recovery and less inflammation after taking curcumin. [7] Turmeric has only been seen to complicate your digestive system when taken in extremely high doses and no other side effects have been proven. [8]
