Intimidating stuff right? Not for the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin! Without getting too deep into the science of it, the properties of curcumin can have a major impact on your brain functioning. It can prevent the build up of the receptor blockers that cause memory loss, enhance the brain’s ability to learn, and reduce stress hormones related to toxicity – therefore, demonstrating the ability to reduce depression and anxiety.
When paired with ginger, indigestion’s arch nemesis, turmeric can provide digestive relief for anything from an everyday stomach ache to aiding Chron’s disease or IBS symptoms. In general, the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric can help relieve stomach pain and stimulate the digestive tract.
Curcumin is also connected to the proper development of bile through the gallbladder. The better your gallbladder functions, the better your body is able to digest foods.
