Curcumin is one of the main spices used in Indian dishes, and some people do not even realize its true power. Curcumin is one of the healthiest spices you will ever use, and it-s all-natural.
Science confirms that the yellow spice provides numerous benefits.
- Strong anti-inflammatory power
Curcumin relieves symptoms of low-level chronic inflammation. This is really important in the treatment of chronic diseases.
- Antioxidant kick
Curcumin eliminates free radicals and boosts the antioxidant enzymes in your body
- Stimulates BDNF
Curcumin crosses the blood-brain barrier, and boosts BDNF, a type of brain hormone that stimulates the growth of new neurons.
The main ingredient in turmeric has a positive impact on your brain and your body in general, and finds great use as:
- Anti-aging product
- Neuroprotective agent
- Natural remedy for arthritis
- Effective supplement for cancer patients
Turmeric relieves anxiety and depression symptoms.
“Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.” -- Kris Gunnars, Healthline
“Curcumin’s positive antidepressant and anti-anxiety effects are likely due to its ability to normalize specific physiological pathways. It appears to elevate neurotransmitters such as serotonin, while lowering stress hormones, such as cortisol, and is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Curcumin also provides protection to the brain,” explains Adrian Lopesti, Ph.D., of Murdoch University in Australia.
Lopesti and his team released the findings in the June 2014 issue of the Journal of Affective Disorders. According to these findings, “curcumin succeeded in reducing the overall symptoms of depression, functioning as an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety substance) as well when taken over a period of 8 weeks.”
Curcumin stimulates the release of the brain chemical BDNF. Science has confirmed the link between low BDNF levels and depression. It is also associated with the shrinkage of the hippocampus or the brain area related to your memory and learning skills.
Curcumin is the thing you need to bring your health at an optimal level, and it also relieves anxiety and depression. Make yourself some turmeric lemonade as it is one of the best ways to use it.
