7 Benefits of Turmeric For Your Health
by Jennifer P. April
Westerners do.  Indian and Chinese medicine have long used this colorful spice as a
food and a medicine. In the past few years, it's been tested in Western laboratories
and found extremely useful for many chronic ailments.

Here are 7 Turmeric Benefits:

1-As a natural anti-septic
, it speeds up healing of cuts and scrapes. Next time you
have a cut, sprinkle some turmeric on it before you bandage it. You'll be surprised at
how quickly it heals.

2--A natural Cox-2 inhibitor-- turmeric's anti-inflammatory effects are found
similar to drugs like Motrin and even hydrocortisone - without the dangerous side
effects.

3--Cancer fighting spice-Curcumin is the medicinal component of turmeric and
research shows is a powerful cancer-fighting element. Studies show it blocks the
creation of new cancer cells and can stop them from spreading.

4-Relief from rheumatoid arthritis- turmeric is a powerful anti-oxidant. It negates
the free radicals flying around your body and causing swelling and joint pain. Studies
show it comparable with drug treatments like phenylbutazone - without the hefty
price tag.

5-Protect your cardiovascular system --- Studies show curcumin may prevent
the oxidation of cholesterol in the body. Oxidized cholesterol damages blood vessels
and can lead to heart attack or stroke.

6-- Lower your "bad" cholesterol-the curcumin in turmeric enhances your liver
functions. It sends the message to your liver to create more of the receptors needed
to clear the "bad" cholesterol from your body.

7-Protection from Alzheimer's Disease-Rates of Alzheimer's are quite low among
the elderly Indian population who eat lots of turmeric. Researchers believe it triggers
a certain gene that makes antioxidant proteins. It also reduces the plaque that
disrupts brain function in Alzheimer's patients.
