Turmeric is a great spice to add to your cooking, for its vast array of medicinal qualities. Turmeric contains curcumin- which has powerful anti inflammatory effects and is also a very strong antioxidant. It is said that it is better absorbed into the bloodstream if you add black pepper with it. Curcumin boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF and is known to prevent or delay brain related diseases and illnesses. It may also increase memory power.

Turmeric is also mentioned as a helping medicine to cure / prevent Cancer, Alzheimers, Depression and Arthritis as well as other Age related chronic diseases.
