Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric—the spice that gives a deep yellow color to Indian curries.
It’s also a popular dietary supplement because of its many health benefits!
Here are 5 reasons to love curcumin:
1️⃣ Fights Free Radicals
Like many herbs, spices, and plant foods, curcumin is a powerful antioxidant—helping to combat everyday toxins and oxidative stress.
2️⃣ Supports a Healthy Inflammatory Response
Curcumin is most famous for its role in inflammation. It can be taken temporarily (when healing from an injury or illness) or long-term.
3️⃣Supports Healthy Blood Pressure
Curcumin improves endothelial function, which supports healthy blood pressure
4️⃣ Supports the Brain
Curcumin increases levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is critical for learning and memory
Possibly also through BDNF, curcumin has been shown to support a healthy mood.
There are more reasons to love curcumin, but that’s probably enough for now.
One important thing to know about curcumin is that it is not easily absorbed from the digestive tract.
👉 That’s why supplement quality matters.
We recommend a high-quality curcumin product that is formulated for optimal absorption.
