Alleviates symptoms of depression

Research shows that a key ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, can react with several chemicals in the body to induce a positive effect in alleviating depression. Curcumin is shown to reduce the impact of cortisol and regulate glucose levels that fluctuate due to insulin resistance and cause a depressive-like state.

Helps manage diabetes

Studies have shown that taking turmeric over nine months improved insulin function in adults. Insulin resistance is a major cause of type 2 diabetes that can be alleviated with a constant intake of turmeric.

Relieves symptoms of PMS

Most women experience one or another form of PMS during their reproductive age. For some, it is bloating, for some cramps, and so many others. The impact of curcumin on neurotransmitters and its anti-inflammatory properties are shown to reduce the symptoms caused by premenstrual syndrome.

Turmeric has also shown alleviated effects of cold and other viral infections. It is prescribed that you take turmeric supplements or tea frequently, as curcumin may not always be absorbed well by the body.
