Curcumin: A Miracle Spice?

This component of the spice tumeric has been getting a lot of press lately. There have been multiple studies that show curcumin’s many health benefits.  In fact, it has been used as a powerful medicine for many years in India.
Is all the hype real? Study after study has shown curcumin as a powerful anti-inflammatory supplement.
Impressive scientific research has shown that curcumin, a unique antioxidant compound found in the root of the turmeric plant, may be one of the most powerful, natural brain-supporting substances ever discovered!(1)

Curcumin is a potent inhibitor of the body’s most powerful inflammation-causing chemical, called Nf-kappa beta. In fact, curcumin has been shown in numerous studies to tame joint pain and muscle soreness, and support cognitive health, cardiovascular wellness, immune function and more.[6,7,8,9,10]
In my opinion, one of the best curcumin supplements, with the best bioavailability is Daily Turmeric Nutrient Booster Powder By: MegaFood.
