The benefits of Turmeric are long-celebrated but it is just now making its way into mainstream wellness products. The active ingredient in Turmeric, called Curcumin, gives the spice it’s yellow hue and its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation plays a key role in chronic diseases, as well as physical injuries and brain health, so upping your turmeric intake has potential to help treat and prevent a large number of different conditions! Dr. Gometz recommends Curcumin for our concussion patients as well, to reduce inflammation of the brain. Additionally, studies show the spice has powerful potential to protect against different forms of neurodegeneration. We highly recommend cooking with turmeric (add some black pepper to help absorption) or taking a Curcumin supplement. In fact, one of our patients came in recently just to tell us that taking a Curcumin supplement greatly reduced her inflammation better than the over the counter anti-inflammatories she had been trying! What a wonderful, natural supplement to add to your diet! For more information on the benefits of Turmeric/Curcumin, check out this wonderful article from MindBodyGreen
