Inflammation is the body’s natural defense against tissue damage. Generally, it’s a very good thing; it helps activate the healing process. However, when our body is in a state of chronic inflammation it can be very dangerous to our health. Stress, processed foods and toxins trigger the kind of chronic inflammation that has been linked to many diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cardiovascular issues and many more. Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory spice with amazing healing and pain-relieving properties. According to many studies, turmeric works better than many analgesics at relieving pain. The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are effective at easing neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, intestinal diseases, skin, and lung disorders.
