We Heart Turmeric

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.
