Curcumin is the active ingredient in the spice turmeric, the bright yellow seasoning used to make curries in Asian cooking, and it has been used medicinally for centuries. It is one of the fastest growing supplement categories today.
There are thousands of clinical studies showing that it has the ability to fight bacteria, viruses, cancer, depression, inflammation and other serious chronic illnesses.
Curcumin supports healthy aging, improves heart health, eases arthritis pain and combats dangerous free radicals (the rogue molecules that damage your health).
Some brain conditions may also be helped by curcumin. One animal study found that it actually stimulated the growth of new nerve cells in the brain, reversing learning and memory problems.
