Imagine a natural spice that had the proven power to reduce or eliminate inflammation, the underlying cause of so many serious health disorders—and that’s just for starters. For over 5,000 years, India’s Ayurvedic medical practitioners have successfully used turmeric as a treatment for a host of painful and debilitating diseases. And for over sixty years, Indian hospital and research centers have studied the amazing effects of turmeric, with hundreds of scientific papers published throughout India, Asia, and Europe. However, only in 2000 did US medical researchers begin to recognize this ancient root’s astounding health benefits. They have found that turmeric:
¢ Lowers blood pressure
¢ Combats ulcers, IBS, and indigestion
¢ Reduces arthritic pain
¢ Increases brain function
¢ Relieves depression and dementia
¢ Helps fight cancer cells
¢ Improves kidney and liver function
¢ Aids in weight loss . . . and more

This is followed by recommendations regarding the most appropriate form of curcumin and proper dosage. Also included is a resource section that guides you to the best turmeric and curcumin products.
