Benefits of Good Green Stuff Ingredient: Turmeric

Turmeric’s strong anti-inflammatory profile combined with its powerful antioxidant activity makes it essential for your diet, not to mention essential for us to have included in Good Green Stuff.

It is the active constituent in turmeric, curcumin, that research has found to be beneficial in reducing pain and increasing functionality in osteoarthritis. It is an effective remedy for joint pain and is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, turmeric has been proven in medical studies to be equally effective as Ibuprofen when It comes to pain relief.

This is one of the reasons that turmeric is so effective for those of us on an exercise regime. Turmeric can prevent muscle exhaustion and injuries because it reduces inflammation in our joints and body. This allows us to recover faster and build muscle faster.

Turmeric stops inflammation at a cellular level and prevents it from becoming chronic inflammation, which can be a precursor to long-term injuries and inflammation. Inflammation at the cellular level can cause all kinds of problem, so it’s a good idea to stop this in its tracks.

Exercise does a heart good and so does turmeric. The American Journal of Cardiology reports that turmeric extract reduces post-bypass heart attack risk by 56%. Regular ingestion of curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric (which gives the spice its golden hue) is proven to improve cardiac health. Nothing can replace good old exercise, but in combination the synergy of the two give your heart the love it needs.

Taking turmeric is so easy with Good Green Stuff and it is one of the many ingredients that help keep our bodies in tip-top condition.
