Some experts even considering turmeric or the compound in turmeric, curcumin to be more beneficial than pharmaceuticals. From fighting, preventing and even reversing disease, turmeric has so many healing properties that there have been over 6,235 peer-reviewed articles published proving its benefits.
So why is turmeric so powerful? It has massive anti-inflammatory effects. When looking at disease, all disease and even aging it begins with inflammation. So fighting inflammation is the key to longevity and disease prevention.

Basically if there was one thing you would do for your health this year, it would be adding turmeric.
You can find good turmeric here and use it in multiple ways. Most commonly known as the main spice in curry I prefer to use it in golden milk lattes, smoothies, salad dressings and/or just supplement with it.
