Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against free radicals, which may play a role in heart disease, cancer, Parkinson's disease, alzheimer's, diabetes and other diseases. Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food or when you're exposed to tobacco smoke, radiation or pollution and these free radicals may impact the body negatively if they go unchecked.Oxidative damage is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind aging and many diseases.
Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E and carotenoids, may help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. The major pigment in turmeric is curcumin, which is a major active component of turmeric. The salient feature of curcumin is to exhibit strong antioxidant activity which is comparable to Vit C & Vit E. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure. Turmeric is a spice which is believed to have highest level of anti-oxidants power. Studies show that curcominoids present in turmeric are effective in finding and neutralising the free radicals and also help prevent development of free radicals up to a certain extent. Thus, adding turmeric in your daily life can lead to a better overall health and well-being.
Turmeric is being used in India since ages to fight inflammation and turmeric roots contain a compound called curcumin which gives it this superpower. If consumed in the right dosage Curcumin may be a more effective anti-inflammatory treatment than other common medications according to some past studies(more research is needed to prove this though). In today's fast paced life with increase in pollution level and stress chronic inflammations have become a very common thing which leads to many chronic diseases. Turmeric since ancient times has been used to prevent and manage inflammation and more so in todays date people have started to make turmeric a part of their daily routine, be it in the form of fresh turmeric juice, eating a small piece of turmeric root, having turmeric latte or applying it directly onto the affected area to treat the inflammation.
The best part about turmeric is that it has no side effects.
