What are the benefits of Turmeric?

Turmeric acts as a powerful Antioxidant:

Numerous physiological and chemical process that are performed in the body each day produce free radicals (Interaction of oxygen with certain molecules). The free radicals can prove fatal to human body by causing damage to parts of cells such as proteins, DNA, and cell membranes by stealing their electrons through a process called oxidation.

As the human body ages, it loses its ability to fight the negative effects of free radicals. The result is more free radicals, more oxidative stress, and more damage to cells, which leads to degenerative processes which may lead to chronic health disorders such as Respiratory disorder, Obesity, Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease etc.

Curcumin present in Turmeric acts as a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals. In addition, curcumin is also responsible to boost the activity of your body’s own antioxidant enzymes. In simple terms, curcumin delivers a one-two punch against free radicals. It blocks them directly, then stimulates your body’s own antioxidant defense.
