In The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth, Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S. highlights turmeric for fighting inflammation.
A broad swathe of health industry professionals are convinced that the spice turmeric has anticancer activity. “It helps support liver health, and is a powerful antioxidant,” writes Johnny. Moreover, “the one property of turmeric that stands out—and may even help support its other healthful activities—is its enormous power as an anti-inflammatory.”
The family of compounds thought to be responsible for turmeric’s medicinal effects are curcuminoids, which are also responsible for giving turmeric its bright yellow color. The curcuminoids are believed to be responsible for turmeric’s phenomenal anti-inflammatory properties. The most studied of he curcuminoids is curcumin. In one study, curcumin was found to be virtually as effective as he anti-inflammatory medication phenylbutazone.
