Those of you who are subscribed to my YouTube channel may recall we posted a video a couple of weeks ago talking to Dr. Steve Anton of the University of Florida about some of the miraculous properties of turmeric and curcumin and the results of some of his many years of study. It was our first foray into the subject of turmeric and certainly not the last. Turmeric has always been a subject of fascination for me. In my many travels to India, I have seen first hand how important it is in their diets and this root has been shown to have amazing nutritional benefits that I will delve into in more detail in the following video.
With significance in spiritual ceremonies, wedding rituals and Ayurvedic practices dating back centuries, turmeric is perhaps one of the most ceremonial ingredients on Earth. This ancient spice has strong roots within Ayurvedic wellness practices, which aims to restore whole-body health and balance naturally, as it’s a medicinal system that relies on potent plant extracts and nutrients found within nature to maintain physical and mental health.
From nature’s anti-inflammatory to an everyday mood booster, turmeric benefits encompass inner and outer health, thanks to curcumin, the bioactive chemical compound within turmeric root responsible for its telltale bright hue.
Curcumin is a powerful compound that acts as an antioxidant, which allows it to fight free radical scavengers that can accelerate cellular aging. They’re so potent, in fact, that curcumin may be used for pharmacological purposes.
