Curcumin is the active ingredient in the spice turmeric, a bright yellow seasoning used both as a dye and to make curries in Asian cooking. But it has been used for centuries as a powerful natural medicine and it is one of the fastest growing supplement categories today. Thousands of clinical studies show curcumin’s ability to fight bacteria and viruses, it’s a potent anti-inflammatory, and emerging research shows tremendous promise for curcumin’s ability to fight depression – even beat cancer, and other inflammatory diseases like cancer, diabetes, arthritis and Alzheimer’s. Curcumin’s antioxidant properties promote healthy aging, improves heart health, eases arthritis pain and combats dangerous free radicals (the rogue molecules that damage your health). Research shows that 500 mg, twice a day (and up to four times a day) is useful for treating upset stomach, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The same can be said for general health maintenance, cardiovascular and antioxidant support.
