Turning Up with Turmeric
Posted: Sep 27 2015
Feeling that Fall tingle in your throat?
We've got a flu-fighting mainstay, and it's found in our Clean Me Up II and Clean Me Up III -- Turmeric. The ochre-colored spice has an earthy aromatic flavor you've likely encountered in Indian food and in Eastern medicine practices.
Beyond having a complex, slightly citrusy flavor, this ancient plant also has a number of transformative health benefits including:
- Got a croaky throat and congested head? In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric is frequently used as an antimicrobial and antibiotic to protect against--and fight--flu symptoms. (source: University of Southern California)
Migraines or constant headaches? The chemicals in turmeric have powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties that'll help relieve those head pains, pronto. (source: National Institutes of Health)
Funky tummy got you down? In a study, supplements containing turmeric were found to be effective at lessening heartburn and other symptoms of indigestion. (source: National Center for Biotechnology Information)
Cardiovascular concerns? Curcurmin, the compound which gives turmeric its bright color, has been used to prevent heart attacks among bypass patients--and studies suggest it may contribute to a 65% lower chance of heart attacks. (source: National Institutes of Health)
