To live the Ultimate Life, you also must have The Ultimate Diet… this powerhouse spice can be added to various foods in your meal plan  that contains a powerful antioxidant called curcumin. No matter which diet regimen you’ve chosen to follow this new year, this spice can be included to help fight inflammation:

Nutritionist and author of Meals That Heal Inflammation, Julie Daniluk, suffered from arthritis, bursitis and colitis: all conditions rooted in painful inflammation.

But Daniluk says she was able to push her symptoms into remission thanks to a few dietary changes. Along the way, she discovered a powerhouse spice called turmeric.

Curcumin May Prevent Weight Gain

Recent research from Tufts University in Massachusetts found that curcumin suppressed the growth of fat tissue, and therefore prevented weight gain in mice. However, more research has to be done to demonstrate its effects on humans and weight loss.

It Could Also Be Related To Alzheimer’s Prevention

Another study from UCLA found that rats who ate curcumin were more resistant to the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaque in their brains — an abnormality associated with Alzheimer’s in people. Elderly people in India have one of the world’s lowest rates of Alzheimer’s, according to the NCBI, and also have diets high in turmeric. But more research needs to be done to confirm a connection between curcumin and Alzheimer’s in humans.

Soothing  Your Stomach

People in India and Pakistan usually use turmeric to relieve stomach pain, and there might be something to that. There is some researchshowing that taking turmeric internally (in food, tea or juice and milk) may relieve stomach upset or dyspepsia, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
