We Heart Turmeric
Posted On Feb 09, 2017
According to the University of Tsukuba in Japan, turmeric is potentially as effective as moderate exercise at preventing aging and boosting heart health. “Turmeric has a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect,” explains New York’s Jeffrey Morrison, MD. “Curcumin is the component of turmeric responsible for anti-inflammatory effects. It has been found to make blood cells less sticky and less likely to form blood clots.” Morrison suggests adding one teaspoon to scrambled eggs, chicken salad, and fish. The Butcher’s Daughter in New York (thebutchersdaughter.com) mixes this bright yellow spice into their very popular juice called the Honey Bee.
