Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a rhizomatous herbacious perennial plant of the ginger family. 


Curcumin, a plant-produced chemical, is one of the key active ingredients in turmeric.
Not only does it give the root its distinctive bright yellow colour, but it’s also a known anti-inflammatory.
This makes turmeric a powerful therapeutic when it comes to reducing the pain, inflammation & stiffness that accompanies rheumatoid arthritis & osteoarthritis.
If you really want to concentrate your intake you can take curcumin as an herbal supplement.



While turmeric can help alleviate conditions like rheumatoid arthritis & osteoarthritis, a recent study suggested that turmeric is more effective at preventing joint inflammation than reducing pain.
So, even if you’re not currently experiencing joint pain turmeric you can still reap the benefits of turmeric.
If you don’t love the flavour, simply blitz a teaspoon of turmeric into your morning berry/banana smoothie.
If you’re looking for a natural remedy to ward off colds, coughs & other everyday illnesses, turmeric could be your new secret weapon.
The root drastically increases the body’s antioxidant capacity, which helps to arm the body against free radicals. The chemical structure of curcumin actively neutralises free radicals, as well as ramps up the body’s own antioxidant enzymes.
As well as physiological benefits, turmeric is also loaded with cognitive parks.
Curcumin has the capacity to boost brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a type of growth hormone that keeps the brain healthy. Without it, the brain becomes vulnerable to disorders like depression & Alzheimer’s disease.
BDNF helps to ensure that brain neurons continue to divide & multiply, which can ultimately help to improve memory, fight off degenerative processes & even reverse certain types of brain diseases.
Heart disease is one of the world’s biggest killers. In New Zealand alone around 185,000 Kiwis currently live with heart disease, which causes a huge 33% of deaths.
Now, new research suggests that turmeric could help to prevent & reverse many steps in the heart disease process. The presence of curcumin enhances the function of the endothelium, which lines the blood vessels & helps the body regulate blood pressure, as well as prevent clotting.
One study indicates that curcumin is just as effective as exercise, while another hailed it as an alternative to Atorvastatin, a prescription drug used to lower blood cholesterol.
