Turmeric is arguably the most powerful herb on the planet to preventing, reversing and curing disease. With over 600 health benefits, turmeric’s medicinal powers are seemingly endless!

From cancer prevention to anti-inflammatory treatments, turmeric should be a staple in every diet. In fact, when compared to conventional pharmaceutical medications, turmeric has proven to be more advantageous than certain prescription drugs, like Prozac and Aspirin.

Turmeric As An Anti-Inflammatory


With more than 2 dozen anti-inflammatory compounds and 6 COX-2 inhibitors, turmeric reduces inflammatory outbreaks. COX-2 is an enzyme that reduces pain and inflammation. Put simply, turmeric’s high COX-2 content “blocks” inflammation and brings pain relief.

Turmeric As An Anti-Oxidant And To Prevent Cancer

Turmeric permeates the membranes of free radicals and neutralizes them. This prevents cancerous cells from spreading and creating more oxidation!

Studies prove that turmeric helps prevent several forms of cancer including lung, stomach, breast, colon and liver. Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties prohibit the development of cancer by interfering with the cellular signals of chronic disease.
