This third starting point goal is a highly recommended one for reducing inflammation from the inside out. My experience is that it also reduces pain levels. For me this first drink in the a.m., helped to clear a foggy brain which was a surprising benefit. My intention for starting this practice was to support digestion, transform stomach acid to alkaline and speed up my metabolism.
Benefits of turmeric:
In Ayurvedic medicine turmeric has been used for generations to support joint mobility, digestion, and circulation. Current articles suggest it is useful for arthritis, improving brain function and in cancer research.
Turmeric is a source of curcumin which is a powerful anti-inflammatory and a strong antioxidant. However curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream on its own. To harness its benefits the use of black pepper is recommended as it can increase curcumins bioavailability.
Anything that can reduce chronic inflammation is important in preventing and treating any condition and disease resulting from chronic inflammation. I have begun to read more articles that suggest curcumin blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases.
Many write about how curcumin is a strong antioxidant which reduces free radicals while stimulating one’s own body antioxidant defences. Free radicals contribute to aging and many diseases.
Lately articles are suggesting that a type of growth hormone know as BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) that functions in your brain benefits from curcumin. It seems to raise the levels of BDNF which lessens the effects of depression and Alzheimer’s disease.
