The top 5 health benefits of turmeric and curcumin

Turmeric has become a star of the spice world and it’s reputation continues to grow as further studies prove its amazing health benefits. Specifically it’s most active ingredient Curcumin has gained considerable attention as studies show it is the driving force behind turmeric's powerful properties. But what are their health benefits?
1. Fighting inflammation
Inflammation is part of the body’s healing process. However chronic inflammation can cause many diseases and health conditions. Studies have shown that curcumin can suppress pro-inflammatory signalling, which gives it powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
These anti-inflammatory properties mean that turmeric and curcumin may help those with inflammation based conditions, from IBD and arthritis to eczema and can support muscle recovery.
2. Immune support
A strong and healthy immune system is essential for your body to fight invaders, such as viruses, bacteria, and foreign bodies.
Studies have shown that turmeric contains excellent anti-oxidant, anti-viral and anti-microbial properties, which can help to support a healthy immune system. Research also shows it can help to modulate different signalling molecules which are essential for the functioning of a healthy immune system.
3. Supporting brain health
Our brains are the most amazing part of our bodies but brain health often gets overlooked until there are some sort of changes in older age.
Curcumin has been shown to boost both memory and cognition. It has also been shown to increase the brain hormone BDNF which helps to improve the function of neurons by encouraging their growth as well as strengthening and protecting them.
Some findings have also suggested that curcumin may be able to prevent the formation and even break up amyloid-beta plaques, the toxic protein clumps that build up in Alzheimers disease.
4. Supporting gut health
Our gut health is not just important for digestion. A healthy gut supports the immune system and contributes to general health and wellbeing.
Studies have shown that curcumin can have positive effects on human gut microbiota, reducing intestinal inflammation, as well as supporting diverse gut bacteria which supports a strong immune system.
5. Reducing joint pain
Inflammation in the joints can be very painful, causing swelling and restricting movement.
Studies have shown that turmeric and curcumin’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties may reduce joint pain and tenderness, cartilage degeneration and joint inflammation.
