Not only is turmeric anti-inflammatory and an anti-coagulant, studies have shown it benefits arthritis, cancer, heartburn, and depression.
Feeling down? Before you reach for a prescription drug to help remedy your depression, consider making this anti-inflammatory turmeric drink that is side effect-free and tastes delicious.
In case you didn’t know, turmeric is incredibly medicinal. Research has shown that not only is the root an anticoagulant (slows and prevents blood clotting) and an anti-inflammatory, it aids cancer treatment and is an anti-depressant, due to curcumin which studies have shown is more effective than fluoxetine which Prozac contains. Research has also concluded that turmeric can benefit conditions such as skin cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, heartburn, jaundice, diarrhea, and gallbladder and stomach pain.
